Bears place right tackle Larry Borom in concussion protocol


(670 The Score) Bears right tackle Larry Borom has entered the concussion protocol.

The Bears’ injury report Wednesday listed Borom as dealing with a concussion. He played the entirety of the Bears' 33-14 win over the Patriots on Monday night at Gillette Stadium. The team hadn't previously acknowledged Borom’s concussion before listing him on the injury report.

If Borom is unable to play when the Bears (3-4) visit the Cowboys (5-2) on Sunday, veteran Riley Reiff would likely step in as the starter at right tackle. Reiff has played 26 snaps this season but just two on offense as a sixth eligible tackle.

Bears center Lucas Patrick (toe) was also listed as not practicing Wednesday. He's likely to land on injured reserve, coach Matt Eberflus told reporters earlier in the day. That would require Boron to miss a minimum of four games. Sam Mustipher is set to step in as the Bears' starting center without Patrick.

The Bears held a closed walk-through Wednesday.
