Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney, who left today’s game in the third quarter, may be done for 2022.

Mooney suffered an ankle injury that the Bears fear will be season-ending, according to NFL Network.

Although Mooney will get another evaluation before any decisions are made, it appears that Mooney has torn ligaments in his ankle and will need surgery.

A fifth-round draft pick in 2020, Mooney is the Bears’ leading receiver with 40 catches for 493 yards this season.

  1. Best shut him down. He’s a valuable player and it would be a shame to waste his future on a season the team management has clearly quit on.

  2. Nothing like a nasty injury in a meaningless game. Hoping the best and quickest recovery for Darnell. Get ready for 2023!

  3. Worst playing surface in the league, seems to me more people get hurt there than anywhere. And everyone complains about Soldier Field ……..

  4. He’s probably thankful to not have to be a part of the train wreck for the rest of the season.

    The Bears biggest fear should be that Justin Fields is healthy.
