Report: Josh Sitton could miss time with ankle injury for Bears

Chicago Bears guard Josh Sitton hobbled off the field late in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars with an injury and could be out for an extended period of time with an ankle ailment. 

Veteran Ted Larsen moved into the left guard spot for one play on Sunday and is a candidate to take over that spot on the Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers. The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs also suggests Eric Kush could take over the starting job in Week 7.

A sixth-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013, Kush has spent time with the Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans and Los Angeles Rams in his career. He was featured on HBO's Hard Knocks this offseason, and he was among the Rams' final cuts.

The Bears quickly claimed him off waivers on September 4, and he has been on the team's 53-man roster ever since. He has not been active for a game this year but that could all change this Thursday night.

Sitton has been a big reason why the Bears have shown improvement in both pass protection and the running game in recent weeks, and his loss could be a big one for Chicago if he is out for a significant period of time.
