Bears place Rachal on reserve/non-football injury list


The mystery of Chilo Rachal continues to unfold.

He walked out on the Bears after a bad performance on Monday night against the 49ers.  He was placed on the reserve/left squad list.  He then returned to the team.

Now, the Bears have placed him on the reserve/non-football injury list.

Rachal was reportedly distraught over his demotion from the first team, and his emotional state is “very bad.”  Still, that’s not an injury, and the Bears specifically used the term “non-football injury” not “non-football illness.”

Either way, Rachal is done for the year.  He’s also likely done as a Bear.

    After walking off the team, he’s probably done in the NFL.

    As a 49ers fan we all know Chilo all too well and his struggles. We drafted him in the 2nd round he never could live up to his believed potential. When the Bears signed him in the offseason all I could do was smirk.

    The way these teams manipulate the injury list, they probably noticed a hangnail and dubbed it a ‘hand injury’.

    Likely they are able to pay out less by using this designation than some other. But, why not just cut him altogether if he can’t be used this year as a fill-in and he’s become both a headache and a distraction?

    The MVP for the Niners on Monday Night.
