Bears Place Center Eric Kush on IR After Tearing Hamstring

The Bears placed center Eric Kush on the injured reserve list and is out for the season, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Kush tore his hamstring off the bone and will need surgery to repair it, according to Bears coach John Fox.

“At the end of practice Friday, he, they thought it was spasms, they thought it was possibly scar tissue,” he said. “But he did tear his hamstring in a completely different place, unfortunately.”

The Bears re-signed Kush, who started four games in his first season with the Bears, to a two-year, $2.7 million deal in February. Kush, who can play both guard and center, was the favorite to be the team’s backup interior lineman.
