Bears lose Lance Louis, short-handed on offensive line
With Chris Spencer starting at left guard and Lance Louis starting on the right side as they took the field on Sunday against Minnesota, the Bears dressed no backup interior linemen. Which is now a huge problem considering Lance Louis, probably the team's best offensive lineman, is out of the game with a knee injury.
Chilo Rachal was so upset when the Bears demoted him from his starting guard position last week, he left the team facility in a huff. Though he returned the next day, his emotional state reportedly was not good and Chicago placed him on the reserve/non-football injury list and ended his season.
With Chris Spencer starting at left guard and Lance Louis starting on the right side as they took the field on Sunday against Minnesota (Chicago ended up with a 28-10 lead), the Bears dressed no backup interior linemen. Which is now a huge problem considering Louis, probably the team’s best offensive lineman, left the game with a knee injury.
He left the game after taking this shot from Vikings defensive end Jared Allen smacked him (h/t to The Big Lead).
From J’Marcus Webb at left tackle to Roberto Garza at center, Chicago’s offensive line, for much of the season, has been a disaster. With a demoted tackle now playing guard, it’s unlikely that it’ll improve much before the end of the day.
