The Chicago Bears lost four starters due to injuries during yesterday’s 23-17 overtime loss against the Seattle Seahawks, including linebacker Brian Urlacher, wide receiver Earl Bennett and cornerback Tim Jennings, reports Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago.
Health continues to be a issue for the Chicago Bears who lost four starters due to injuries over the course of their 23-17 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Urlacher sustained an injury to his right hamstring late in the game. He was not on the field for Seattle’s game-winning touchdown pass in overtime. The veteran had his leg wrapped by the club’s training staff and was relegated to the sidelines.
Bennett is dealing with a concussion. While he didn’t exit the game following the play, he was hit hard during his touchdown reception in the first half. He leapt across the goal line, was knocked upside down and appeared to land on his head.
Jennings exited the game early in overtime after being run over by Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson. Following the game coach Lovie Smith said Jennings suffered a shoulder injury while attempting to make the tackle. At this point the injury isn’t believed to be serious.
Beyond Urlacher, Bennett and Jennings the Bears also lost safety Chris Conte, who was dealing with the flu.
