Bears News: Jaquan Brisker injury update

by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears are pretty healthy as they prepare for their upcoming rivalry game against the Green Bay Packers to start the season.

Second-year safety Jaquan Brisker is a crucial player for the Bears defense and he is one of those players that is currently injured.

He suffered a soft tissue injury in training camp and has missed all three preseason games.

Bears head coach Matt Eberflus told the media Thursday that Brisker is staying busy.

“He’s doing things this weekend," Eberflus said. "He’s been in there in practice this week, which has been good, and he’s been working off to the side also during practice, so he’s starting to get himself in there, and we feel good where he is. Wednesday will be a big day for him when we get back into the pads. So it’ll be a big day for us."

Brisker will have to keep the 24/7 rehab up if he wants to play soon.

“It’s just the wait and see," Eberflus said. "How does the rehab go this weekend? Because he’s doing something every day. He’s doing something Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and then into Tuesday, and we’ll see where it goes. And then when you get the pads on and start cracking and doing full-speed movements, then we’ll see where it is.”

During his rookie season, Brisker had 104 total tackles with four sacks and an interception.
