(670 The Score) As the Bears prepare for formidable challenges in their last four games, they’re getting a couple key reinforcements back on defense.
Bears rookie cornerback Kyler Gordon and rookie safety Jaquan Brisker have each cleared the concussion protocol, coach Matt Eberflus told WBBM Newsradio 780 on Monday morning.
“It’s important that we do a good job of ramping them up,” Eberflus said in his regular in-season appearance on WBBM Newsradio 780. “They haven’t done much for the last three weeks.
“It’s going to be exciting to get those guys back. They’re both really good rookies and having a good year. We’re excited about that.”
Second-round picks of the Bears in the NFL Draft last spring, Gordon and Brisker both missed the last two games while in the concussion protocol. Chicago had its bye last week. Gordon has one interception in 11 games this season. Brisker has one interception and three sacks in 11 games.
The Bears (3-10) host the Eagles (12-1) on Sunday at Soldier Field.
