It is currently unclear if Smith with play in Week 3 against the Houston Texans or when he sustained the injury. Head coach Matt Eberflus didn’t discuss the injury in his press conference before Wednesday’s practice. The Bears need their best players on the field as the team struggled on defense against the Packers.
Roquan Smith has missed a lot of practice since training camp started
The Bears gave up over 200 yards rushing to the Packers. Smith, who missed much of training camp due to a holdout, has not been a terrific defender for the Bears this year. He’s the team’s worst defender through the first two weeks, according to PFF’s ratings. Smith is trying to play well this season to request a heftier contract. Even if Smith does play in Week 3, missing practice will put him further behind in this defense.
