Germain Ifedi Goes On Injured ReserveOctober 13, 2021 | 07:25 PM
The Chicago Bears placed right tackle Germain Ifedi (knee) on Injured Reserve on Wednesday, but head coach Matt Nagy said that he will be back this season. Ifedi went down in the Week 5 win over the Las Vegas Raiders and will now miss at least the next three games. Elijah Wilkinson replaced Ifedi after his injury last Sunday and is expected to start at right tackle moving forward, beginning in Week 6 against the division-rival Green Bay Packers. It's a slight downgrade for rookie quarterback Justin Fields and Chicago's ground game entering a big Week 6 matchup.
