The consequences of injuries on the Bears’ offensive line have not been dire but they have been apparent.
The knee and ankle injuries suffered by Jermon Bushrod will sideline the Bears’ veteran left tackle against the Carolina Panthers, the first game he has missed since 2009 with the New Orleans Sain
The Bears already have lost a center and left guard from their starting lineup because of ankle injuries already this season.
Left tackle Jermon Bushrod, limited in practice on Wednesday with a knee issue, was held out of practice altogether on Thursday, with Michael Ola spending some time working at left tackle.
Shea McClellin had his best game as a pro in the Bears’ first game against the Green Bay Packers last year.
