This is not what I wanted to write on a Saturday afternoon. Coming home today, I heard on WBBM that Hroniss Grasu, the man who was going to be the starting center this season, is out with a “serious non-contact injury”. That pretty much means he tore his ACL. FUCK.
And all of the Bears wide receivers and tight ends seem to be on the injury report already. And preseason games haven’t even started yet. Alshon Jeffery has a shitty hamstring injury again. As much as I love the guy, this may be his last year in Chicago because of the inability to stay healthy. He’s not going to get the money he is asking for.
This is what the NFL is these days. It just sucks because this is happening to the Bears and all too often, the Bears have a ton of injuries every year in training camp. It seems to be even worse now.
Grasu was someone I was very excited about this year and this really pisses me off. The good news is, the Bears have signed and drafted a ton of lineman this offseason. The only issue is, most of these guys’ natural position isn’t center and they may not be that great if they switched to it. The Bears may need to go look for help on the waiver wire as the preseason goes on.
The Bears start the preseason Thursday against the Broncos at Soldier Field.
