D.J. Williams could be done for season with pectoral injury

It’s a good thing for the Bears their backups played well last night.

Because it appears one of them is going to be a starter now.

Bears coach Marc Trestman just told reporters that linebacker D.J. Williams has an injury to a pectoral muscle, which could be season-ending if it’s torn.

Those are always dangerous,” Trestman said, via John Mullin of CSNChicago.com.

Rookie Jon Bostic replaced Williams last night, and after a solid preseason, could be in line to keep the job long-term.

    He got trucked by Jacobs. Pretty nasty collision.

    GOOD its time to start playing more
    young players on that defense. Jon Bostic would have started anyway if they asked me. NOW a young DT would be nice. the defense has not played well.. I know they have a couple of guys hurt. but I am the first one to say NO EXCUSES.. win the games you are scheduled to play

    Hate that DJ is hurt, but I think Bostic is going to be a beast.

    This is actually pretty similair to how Urlacher took over for the Bears in his rookie year. It’s a little early to put that kind of anointing on Bostic, but he looked pretty good in preseason. Although everyone knows preseason doesn’t mean anything.

    Unfortunately, Bostic was seriously terrible last night.

    An injury like this is a big time red flag for PHD use

    I guess Bostic will have to learn to cover on the fly. The guy was a beast against the run last night, when he came in. But his coverage skills are suspect.

    He is more aggressive than Williams

    now we just have to wait for Bostic to injure himself when he spears someone in the back.

    All the negativity toward Bostic and for what?? I know this is Chicago and we hold our LBs to another level but the kid shows amazing skills and promise..he’s had one half of a regular season game..give him at least a full one before you all start sipping on haterade for this kid..anyone who has seen this kid hit knows he has tremendous tallent amd we haven’t even begun to scratch the surface yet..so chill, sit back, gain more weight by being armchair QBs and relax let the kid play

    Yes he is….
    And what does that say about him?
    There is a reason that the Bears were the only team in the league to offer him a contract.

    Might as well bring Urlacher back. That would be sweet!!

    Without Urlacher and Marinelli the Bears defense continues to be on the downslide. If it wasn’t for the takeaways they’d really be screwed.
