MRI coming for Chris Spencer, Lance Louis has MCL injury

After Monday night’s loss to the 49ers, the Bear changed out 40 percent of their starting offensive line.  After Sunday’s win over the Vikings, there’s likely to be another 40-percent turnover.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that guard Chris Spencer will have an MRI on Monday to assess a knee injury suffered in the first half.  Via multiple reports, guard Lance Louis (pictured) is believed to have an MCL injury, sustained when on the wrong end of a blindside, post-turnover block from Vikings defensive end Jared Allen.

Three other Bears starters were injured on Sunday:  running back Matt Forte (ankle), cornerback Charles Tillman (ankle), and receiver Devin Hester (concussion).

    Allen should have been flagged for that hit on Louis.

    Louis played a great game today….Allen probably noticed it and the only way to neutralize him was to knock him out of the game via a cheap shot.

    Injuries starting to pile up for Bears just like Packers now we will see if Lovie can coach

    It’s already quite clear to all those not plagued with acute cluelessness that Lovie Smith is quite capable of coaching.

    Chicago is NOT greenbay. The Bears wanna play so the players will play if they can. In greenbay the players like Jennings dont wanna play because they know they wont be there next season anyway

    Bears fan here, but I disagree…I’m sure all the injured Packers would rather be playing, especially tonight against a tough opponent like the Giants…That said, I hope the Giants smoke ‘em.
