Report: Eddie Goldman to miss a month with high ankle sprain

The Bears defense took several injury hits on Monday night.

Linebacker Lamarr Houston will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL for the second time in the last three years, linebacker Danny Trevathan is having thumb surgery and two defensive backs are in the concussion protocol. On top of that, they’ll reportedly be without defensive tackle Eddie Goldman for the next month.

Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports that Goldman is expected to miss four weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain against the Eagles. The hope is that he’s back for the Thursday night game against the Packers on October 20.

Goldman started 12 games as a rookie in 2015 and had 22 tackles and 4.5 sacks and had a good game against the Texans in the opener, so he’d be missed up front under any circumstances. Given all of the other injury issues on defense in Chicago, his absence will be all the more painful.

    Last line I saw for Sunday night was Cowboys -7.5 and it wouldn’t shock me if that moves at least another point wider with all these Chicago injuries being confirmed. It could get really ugly in Dallas for the Bears.

    You gotta feel bad for the Bears.

    Starting to see who’s the top prospects for next years draft, then will find the over hyped player because that’s who the Bears will draft.

    Go BEARS

    The Bears continue to try and be like the Lions, only their fans don’t blame the refs for their losses.

    Then again why would they, the Lions have one playoff win in 60 years they need all the excuses they can get.

    Sorry Bears fans, injuries came crashing down on you like I have never seen before and I don’t wish that on anyone.

    This is so brutal, losing Goldman and Trevathan for four weeks or more is going to pretty much eat cuck. This feels worse than losing back to back fifty burgers dropped on us two years ago by the Packers and Patriots when Trestman was at the end of his uncanny head coaching of the Chicago Bears.

    Feel really bad for Eddie. He busted his azz this offseason to lose weight at the coaches’ request, and now this. Hard to build a core of good young players when they can’t stay on the field to get seasoned.

    On a related note, this strength/conditioning/”sports science” whatever-the-hell-they’re-calling-it-at-Halas staff really needs to go under the microscope right about now. For so many players to be out with serious injuries or playing hurt only 2 weeks into the season really leads me to question what’s going on there. It’s more than bad luck and it needs to be fixed.

    This is a lost season already- but it seems like it was built to be that way. I didn’t understand the acquisition of Sitton, but it seemed to me that with the other moves the Bears’ made, they were committed to rebuilding.

    This organization has been dysfunctional for a long time. Even when they went to the SB 11 years ago, they got there despite the organization, not because of it.

    The McCaskey’s are one of the only ownership groups whose primary source of income is the Chicago Bears, and there are a lot of McCaskey mouths to feed. The old man must be rolling in his grave. A shame that Mugs Halas died in 1979- maybe things would be different.

    The football gods have no mercy.

    Wow, the Bears fans have already given up, only 8 replies to this story is very telling….along with many, many empty seats at the Season opener.

    If this continues maybe the McCaskey’s will have to consider selling….naw, they won’t sell the Golden Goose.
