Bears' Cameron Meredith reportedly has ACL tear, other damage to knee

Adjust Comment Print

As a rookie back in 2015, Meredith only caught 11 passes for 120 yards and zero scores over the course of 11 regular-season games.

That means Sanchez - listed as Chicago's No. 2 quarterback - will end his preseason with only 14 live game reps, completing 3-of-6 pass attempts for 27 yards. The Bears fully expect Mike Glennon to start at quarterback this season, but, as the second-overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Trubisky is clearly the quarterback of the future. It doesn't seem too serious, not almost as bad as Skuta's concussion, and had it been a regular season game Floyd likely would have played.

Long-snapper Patrick Scales also sustained an apparently serious knee injury while covering on special teams, while free agent signing Prince Amukamara injured his ankle. Well, that will continue on Thursday, as Trubisky will start in the Bears' final preseason game against the Cleveland Browns.

While all of these injuries are worrisome, they are nothing compared to the loss of receiver Cameron Meredith who suffered a gruesome knee injury in the first half.

Fox told reporters after last weekend's game in Tennessee that Sanchez would play in the fourth exhibition game. With Meredith out for the 2017 campaign the Bears will have to rely heavily on Kevin White or bring in new talent, it will be exciting to see what the plan is.

The Bears have not confirmed whether Meredith has torn his ACL.

The Bears now lead the Titans, 12-0, at halftime.
