Bears DT Adams Out With Calf Injury

Quality Depth Behind Adams

Good thing the Bears possess above-average depth on their interior defensive line.

We’ll have the chance to see if the aforementioned statement is true, as defensive tackle Anthony Adams is sporting a walking boot on his left foot, and it looks like he’s going to be sidelined for quite some time.

A team source said the former Nittany Lion will likely be out of action for a couple of weeks and is expected to miss Saturday’s first preseason game at home against Buffalo.

Adams has been hampered by the left calf injury since the weekend, and the boot is for protection and possibly to provide healing:

“A little calf injury, man. I’ll be all right,” Adams said. “You know they put the boot on, man, to make it look worse than it actually is.”

Adams couldn’t provide a definite timetable, for the injury that’s worse than it looks:

“Whenever they say,” he replied. “It’s kind of a day-to-day thing. But the boot makes it looks like I got it amputated or something.”

I’m feeling even better now that we drafted Stephen Paea and picked up Amobi Okoye.  Oh, and don’t forget: Henry Melton is an explosive player and Israel Idonije is as versatile as they come.  Our line is strong inside regardless if Adams is at full strength, however, he’s a run-stuffing anchor when healthy.  Time to test out the young guys.
