Sitton (ribs) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Sitton suffered the rib injury in the Bears' loss to the Buccaneers last Sunday and was unable to return to the contest. The starting guard was sidelined for all three of the Bears' practices this week, and with Sitton making limited progress leading up to Sunday, the team decided it was best to hold him out. His absence will hurt a Bears running attack that was already sputtering with Sitton in the lineup.
Sitton returned to practice Wednesday following a leave of absence, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Sitton was granted a temporary leave of absence after his wife went into labor early last week. Now back at camp, Sitton projects to resume his starting spot along the Bears offensive line.
Sitton (chest) isn't certain to be ready for the start of training camp, Adam L. Jahns of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.
It's possible the Bears are simply being cautious with Sitton, who's been sitting out of offseason practices the past month due to an unspecified chest injury. Don't expect the team to take the training wheels off its veteran lineman until management is certain he's returned to full strength, even if that means missing out of the beginning portion of training camp.
Sitton did not practice Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Although the report did not reveal a specific injury suffered, Coach John Fox did note that Sitton's absence was injury related. With a fair amount of ambiguity pertaining to his status, we'll have to take a wait-and-see approach for the time being.
