As we all already know, Brian Urlacher is done for the season with the wrist injury he suffered in Green Bay. The Bears website states that he will be replaced by Hunter Hillenmeyer. Unless Hillenmeyer plays leaps and bounds better in the middle than he did in 2004, we’re in trouble.
Word has it the Bears have calls into former Tampa all-pro Derrick Brooks, but how much would Brooks have left in the tank? I assume if they signed Brooks, the Bears would move Lance Briggs to the middle and put Brooks in at the will backer position normally manned by Briggs.
Scary way to start the season, Bears fans. But again, good teams overcome injuries. We’ll see if the Bears can be one of those teams.
