The Chicago Bears were embarrassed on Sunday by the New England Patriots as they were blown out, 51-23.
Insult was added to injury as the Bears lost left guard Matt Slauson to a torn pectoral injury. Slauson has since been ruled out for the season, but his injury will not require surgery.
This marks a major loss for the Bears offensive line, which has shown improvement in the last two seasons. General manager Phil Emery said that Slauson will be able to recover in time for the team’s offseason program.
Here is a tweet from the Pro Football Talk Twitter account announcing Slauson’s injury status.
