Kush (hamstring) was officially placed on the injured reserve Monday, Adam Hoge of WGN reports.
This move was expected, as Kush tore his hamstring at practice. he was slated to be a swing player for the interior of the Bears' offensive line. His presence would have been helpful behind the currently injured Kyle Long (ankle). However, this injury does not figure to impact any of the Bears' skilled positional players heading into the season.
Kush tore his hamstring and will be out for the year, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Kush was slated to be a swing player on the interior of the Bears' offensive line, making him especially helpful while Kyle Long (ankle) works his way back to full health. For now, this injury won't impact the fantasy prospects for any of Chicago's skill position players, but they lost valuable depth to the line.
Kush left practice early Sunday due to a tight left hamstring, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The severity of the injury is relatively unknown, but given how distant the regular season still is, the Bears may err on the side of caution. Kush projects to function as a utility lineman for Chicago this year.
