BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears guard Eric Kush will miss the season because of a torn hamstring.
Coach John Fox says Kush tore the hamstring from the bone late last week. He was placed on injured reserve Monday and is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday.
Kush had been struggling with hamstring pain. But Fox says the tear actually happened in a different area of the muscle.
Kush made a career-high four starts and played in eight games last season, his first in Chicago. He then signed a two-year contract with the Bears in February.
Chicago signed undrafted rookie Brandon Greene on Monday. He played at Alabama from 2012 to 2016 and appeared in 54 games as an offensive lineman, a tight end and on defense.
