DE Corey Wootton Injures Knee On Opening Kickoff Vs. Bills

Bears defensive end Corey Wootton suffered a knee injury on the opening kickoff of Saturday’s preseason opener against the Bills, and was declared out for the game, team officials said. A second-year player, Wootton appeared to be poised for a breakout sophomore campaign, based on how he had performed during the first two weeks of training camp.

The extent of Wootton’s injury wasn’t immediately known. A fourth-round pick in 2010 out of Northwestern, Wootton produced the sack — his only sack last season — that seemingly ended the 20-year career of future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre. Wootton was inactive 10 of the first 12 games of his rookie season, in part from complications after suffering a torn ACL in the 2008 Alamo Bowl.

    Can anyone coming here for Bears info actually afford to shop at that place at the top of the page, Football Fanatics?


    238 bucks down from 299 bucks is NOT my idea of a sale.

    You’d have to BE a Bear to afford that “stuff.”

    I’m just saying …
