The Chicago Bears poached a cornerback from the Minnesota Vikings practice squad Wednesday. The Bears have multiple injuries in the secondary, especially at the cornerback position.
Head coach Matt Eberflus pointed to losing three cornerbacks against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3 as a reason the Bears defense gave up 41 points in the loss.
Rookie Tyrique Stevenson was checked for a concussion but left the game with an illness designation. Eberflus didn’t seem to know what Stevneson’s illness designation was during his press conference on Monday. Jaylon Johnson left the game with a hamstring injury.
Kyler Gordon is on injured reserve with a broken hand. Gordon’s backup, Josh Blackwell, re-aggravated his hamstring injury against the Chiefs.
The Bears need depth at cornerback desperately before their Week 4 matchup against the Denver Broncos.
