The Chicago Bears just signed two veteran offensive linemen in hopes of solidifying the front five.

In hindsight, it turned out to be a great decision because free agent acquisition and hopeful starter Lucas Patrick left practice Thursday with an undisclosed injury. Per ESPN‘s Courtney Cronin, he was able to walk off the practice field, which is good news.

“I have no idea, I just saw them leave and I don’t even know what he injured or anything like that,” offensive coordinator Luke Getsy said after practice.

The Bears were able to lure Patrick away from the Green Bay Packers, where Patrick started 28 games over the last two seasons. He’s a very versatile offensive lineman, like most Packers offensive linemen, and was expected to compete for -and win- the Bears’ starting center job.

The hope now, obviously, is the injury isn’t anything too serious. The Bears do have other players with center experience on the roster, but Patrick is easily the most promising player and he has the most potential to bring quality reps to the table.

We will provide more updates as they develop.
