The Chicago Bears got some unfortunate news on Friday. Center Lucas Patrick, who signed a two-year deal worth $8 million back in March, suffered a broken thumb in Thursday’s training camp practice.

Patrick spent his first six seasons with the Bears’ biggest rival, the Green Bay Packers. After only logging six starts in his first four seasons, Patrick has registered 28 starts over the previous two years.
The former undrafted free agent was brought in to be a shield for quarterback Justin Fields. They will still get plenty of time to build chemistry, it’ll just be put on hold for a while.
