The Bears placed Daniels (pectoral) on injured reserve Wednesday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
This move wasn't a surprise, as the Iowa product suffered a season-ending pectoral tear in last Thursday's win over Tampa Bay. Daniels will now rest up and get healthy for the 2021 campaign, as the Bears look to lean on Alex Bars to start at left guard for the remainder of the season.
Daniels suffered a season-ending pectoral tear during Thursday's 20-19 win over the Buccaneers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Daniels didn't miss a game during the first two years of his career, but he'll now have to sit out the rest of the 2020 campaign. Count on the third-year pro to hit injured reserve in the coming days. The Bears will likely count on Alex Bars to start at left guard the rest of the way.
Daniels will undergo an MRI for the pectoral injury he suffered Thursday against the Buccaneers, but the fear is he could miss the remainder of the season, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Should Daniels miss the remainder of the season, it would be a sizable loss for the Bears' offensive line, in which case Alex Bars would likely slot in as the starting left guard.
Daniels is dealing with a pectoral injury and is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Buccaneers.
Look for Alex Bars to slot in at left guard for as long as Daniels is sidelined. Before exiting the contest, Daniels had not missed an offensive snap all season for Chicago.
