To add on top of the bad news stemming from the Chicago Bears‘ loss to the New York Giants on Sunday, some poorly timed injury news has plopped itself on top of the many list of negativities the Bears are currently facing.

Cody Whitehair — widely regarded as the Bears’ best offensive lineman — is expected to miss some time due to a knee injury suffered against the Giants on Sunday.

“Cody’s going to miss some time,” Matt Eberflus said. “We’re not exactly sure what that timeframe is right now.”

This news certainly won’t make matters easier for the Bears’ struggling passing game, and the Bears’ dominant ground game, which has been the team’s best form of offense through the first four weeks of the season.

However, the next man up has to be relied upon, as he’ll be the only saving grace for Whitehair’s absence while he’s away.
