The Bears have lost their rookie first-round draft pick for the rest of the year.
Chicago announced today that tackle Gabe Carimi has been placed on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.
Carimi, who won the Outland Trophy last year at Wisconsin, was selected with the 29th overall pick in this year’s NFL draft and started the first two games of the season at right tackle, but he hasn’t played since Week 2.
With the roster spot opened up by the loss of Carimi, the Bears have moved tackle Levi Horn from the practice squad to the active roster. Horn has been on the Bears’ practice squad for most of the last two years since signing as an undrafted free agent out of Montana in 2010.
