The Bears are ready to place cornerback Kyle Fuller on the injured reserve, meaning he’ll be out at least eight more weeks. He’s yet to play for the Bears at all this season.
Fuller started 16 games last season and Bears coaches believed the 5-foot-11 corner could make a leap in his third year. Alas, knee troubles wiped out most, if not all, of his season.
Fuller dealt with a knee injury during training camp and underwent a knee scope in mid-August.
It’s killer news for an already undermanned and talent-deficient Bears defense. Vic Fangio will ride youth in the secondary in corners Bryce Callahan, Jacoby Glenn and rookie Deiondre’ Hall opposite veteran Tracy Porter.
After a 0-3 start, it already appears a lost season in Chicago. At least John Fox should get a long look at his young players.
