Bears place offensive guard Tevin Jenkins on IR


by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles held his press conference on Wednesday as he summarized all the recent roster moves and updated his team's injury status.

The only injury concern of note was starting offensive guard Teven Jenkins with his leg injury, who will start the season on the injured reserve.

“That’s one of the things we’re working on right now,” Poles said on the reshuffled offensive line. “It’s fluid right now. By the time we get into next week, I’m sure we’ll have that thing solidified, which is important, too.

“We’ve been able to move guys around a little bit and get experience because if we have to do that in the season, we should be in a better position.”

Jenkins will miss at least the first four games of the regular season since he was placed on the injured reserve list.

The Bears will face off against the rival Packers on Sept. 10.
