It sounds like the Chicago Bears just received another tough injury blow. Linebacker Danny Trevathan left Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions and didn't return.Now it looks like the linebacker is likely done for the season. Trevathan had an MRI on his elbow and there's no official update but head coach Matt Nagy didn't sound too optimistic. «Yeah. It' not real pretty,» Nagy said, via NBC Sports Chicago. «But it's a part of this game. You hate to see that, so we'll see how that goes moving forward.»
Nagy wouldn't confirm an IR stint but it's likely. «It could be,» Nagy admitted. «Again, we'll know more here in the next couple of days, but we'll see where it goes as far as weeks are concerned.»
With Akiem Hicks hopeful to return for Week 15, it's a tough blow for the Bears' defense not having two of their leaders for the next couple of weeks. «They're two of the more vocal guys on that side of the ball,» Nagy said. «When you lose a guy like Danny in the middle, that leadership part, you lose a little bit…«It's hard, just because there is so much between the two. Just their personalities in general – they're both a little bit different, with how they handle their personalities. But they're very similar on the field, leadership-wise. As we move forward here, we'll have guys that are always ready and prepared and the coaches will have them the same way.»
