Not only did the Chicago Bears (3-9) fall to the New York Jets (7-4) on Sunday, but the team lost a handful of playmakers in the process.
Chicago entered the game without Justin Fields, Jaquan Brisker, and Kyler Gordon. But things worsened during the contest with the team losing Darnell Mooney, Eddie Jackson, Larry Borom, Reilly Reiff, and Chase Claypool to injuries.
Bears head coach Matt Eberflus took to the podium on Monday to confirm one of the team’s worst nightmares to have come true.
Due to an ankle injury, Mooney is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
“He’s likely to have surgery and he’s going to be done for the season,” Eberflus stated.
Eberflus did add that Mooney will have more tests to come, but the expectation is that the team’s leading receiver will be heading to season-ending injured reserve.
As for the other injured Bears, Eberflus said he will have more information on Wednesday. While Bears fans will certainly have their fingers crossed, Chicago lost much more than just a game on Sunday.
