Trevathan suffered a ruptured patellar tendon in his right knee during Sunday's loss to the Titans and will miss the rest of this season on injured reserve.
Trevathan currently ranks second on the Bears with 66 tackles (49 solo) and also posted a sack prior to going down Sunday. His injury is a tough blow after signing a lucrative four-year contract back in March, as he'll now become the latest Chicago player with a season-ending ailment to nurse going into the offseason. With him out, Christian Jones figures to see more action at inside linebacker.
Trevathan posted 11 tackles Sunday against the Giants.
With the Giants piling up 29 rushing attempts in a game they led for the majority of the second half, Trevathan was extremely busy as he led the Bears in tackles. After failing to exceed six tackles in five straight games, he's now compiled 24 of them over the last two weeks, and he's back on the map as a solid IDP option.
Trevathan was able to pile up the tackles in a game the Buccaneers ran the ball 31 times in a blowout victory. This was the first time since Week 1 that he notched more than six tackles in a game, and although he has double-digit upside for tackles in any given week, he's not a reliable option in IDP leagues.
