Report: Bears WR N'Keal Harry expected to miss 8 weeks after ankle surgery


(670 The Score) Bears receiver N’Keal Harry is expected to miss eight weeks after undergoing ankle surgery Thursday morning, Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reported.

Harry suffered a high ankle sprain in practice Saturday and had to be helped off the field. If the eight-week timeline holds true, it means Harry will miss at least the Bears’ first four regular-season games – and quite possibly more as he'd still need time to work himself back into top shape and form upon his return to the practice field.

A first-round pick of the Patriots in 2019, Harry was acquired by the Bears in exchange for a seventh-round pick in a trade in July. He had 58 receptions for 598 yards and four touchdowns over three seasons and 33 games in New England.

The Bears are dealing with a string of injuries at wide receiver, as Bryon Pringle (quad) and David Moore (leg) are also banged up.
