With all the injuries at defensive tackle that have resulted in Antonio Garay and Anthony Adams being placed on IR, and now the latest injury to Darwin Walker‘s elbow, you kinda figured the Bears would have to sign somebody to play this weekend.
They have, and it’s former Penn State Nittany Lion, and St. Louis Rams first round pick Jimmy Kennedy.
The Bears signed 6-foot-4-inch defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy to the active roster Tuesday to help fill a void with season-ending injuries to Anthony Adams and Antonio Garay.
Kennedy, who played under Lovie Smith with St. Louis Rams, was a first-round pick of the Rams in 2003 and former teammate of Adams’ at Penn State. He was traded from the Rams to the Denver Broncos before this season, then released by the Broncos in September.
Great! Lovie went and signed himself another former player who had a modicum of success under him! That worked out so well with Adam Archuleta!
This team is so fucked.
Let’s see, here’s a quick list of some Bears that have been placed on injured reserve so far this season.
And those are just to name a few. Still, those five won’t be getting lonely anytime soon because they have two new friends coming to join them! They are going to have a fucking party on IR this weekend.
Antonio Garay and Anthony Adams were both placed on IR today.
Bears defensive tackles Anthony Adams (elbow) and Antonio Garay (ankle) were placed on injured reserve Monday, ending their seasons.
See? I wasn’t lying to you.
What’s totally fucked about this is that both Adams and Garay are defensive tackles. Defensive tackles that had already been filling in for injured starters like Dusty Dvoracek and Tommie Harris. As if that weren’t enough, there’s also a strong possibility that Darwin Walker won’t be able to play this week as well.
The Bears currently only have 51 players on the active roster, two below the 53 player maximum.
Kinda makes you wish the Bears wouldn’t have been stupid enough to let Alfonso Boone and Ian Scott walk away, or that they weren’t so harsh with Tank Johnson.
The way the Bears defense plays against the run, I’d let Tank Johnson rape my mother before shooting her in the face as long as he could make a fucking tackle.
