Bears' Jack Sanborn: Facing competition for starting job
Sanborn may need to hold off Noah Sewell for the Bears' starting job at middle linebacker, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Chicago will place Sanborn (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, ending his 2022 campaign, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Bears' Jack Sanborn: Won't return Sunday
Sanborn (ankle) has been downgraded to out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Eagles.
