New Bears safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix suffered a knee injury late in the offseason program. It’s bad enough to keep him from passing a physical at the start of training camp.

Bears G.M. Ryan Pace said Sunday that Clinton-Dix, a first-round pick of the Packers who was traded last year to Washington, is likely headed for the physically unable to perform list. Pace added the offensive lineman T.J. Clemmings and defensive lineman Jonathan Harris are also likely to start camp on PUP as well.

The good news for the Bears is that Pace said he anticiates that tight end Trey Burton will be ready to go from the outset of camp. Sports hernia surgery wiped out his ability to participate in the offseason program.

  1. Tough break for the Bears. I wish HaHa a speedy recovery and that this is not a serious injury.

  2. Green Bay didn’t win the swap. Clinton-Dix is only costing the bears 3 million for one year. Amos was a decent safety but can’t cover anyone and his cap hit is way more than the bears could afford to pay.

    Well it’s a good thing he’s playing Strong Safety for Mike Pettine and the Packer’s D.
    I’m sure he’ll do alright.

  4. Amos is a great player and will help GB, but at SS he was a luxury that the Bears only could have afforded had they not traded for Mack.

    I’d take Mack and a replacement level SS over Amos 10 times out of 10, especially with Eddie Jackson back there. Doesn’t really matter who his partner is with that pass rush.

  5. When I saw Ha Ha step back out of the way at the goal line with an opponent bearing down on him, that was it forever more. Bye Bye Ha Ha

    Wasn’t Adrian Amos the #3 NFL safety according to Pro Football Focus?

    Yes, and Eddie Jackson was #1 (with the highest grade ever given).

  7. “Amos is a great player and will help GB, but at SS he was a luxury that the Bears only could have afforded had they not traded for Mack.”

    Didn’t know the Bears were hurting. They should ask the Packers for a loan.

  8. The packers don’t need money. All they have to do is sell another 10000 shares of that useless stock to those idiots from Wisconsin. As for the bears needing money it’s about the salary cap not cash flow.

    The only idiots are people who aren’t intelligent enough to realize Packer fans know exactly what they’re buying.

    The stock sale helped add 7200 seats to Lambeau Field. My Packers stock certificate hangs next to my Harley stock certificate. Both are priceless to me. I like to think I do my part.

  11. How did he get hurt? All he did is stand in center field and watch plays. Piss poor tackling to avoid contact. Good riddance. Waste of time player

  12. Ha Ha wanted out of Green Bay and the feeling was mutual. Hope he recovers. Don’t wish injuries on anyone.

  13. I feel for the guy. His play had fallen off so badly that he was only able to sign a 1 year deal as a 26 year old free agent, while ascending players are cashing in at that age.

  14. Never good to start the season with a knee injury — seems like those things linger and get re-aggravated as the season progresses. The Bears secondary improved last year when the front 7 improved following the addition of Mack, and Amos is going to get the same benefit with the Pack following the Pack’s supplementation of the front 7 in free agency. I bet Amos plays just fine for the Pack, as will Dix if he recovers from the injury.

    Statistics and lamp poles ….

  17. After you watch HHCD regularly lay 5 to 10 yards behind the receiver just in case it bounces off his hands then tell me how good he is. That and watch the incredibly terrible angles he takes to the sidelines. There is something to be said for a safety making big plays and HHCD does at times, but when it is at the expense of giving big plays, especially at the back end, that’s a big negative.
