NFL Injury Report:
There has seemingly been a rash of significant injuries
early in training camp this season. While most have been of the torn ACL
variety, Chicago Bears cornerback Kelvin Hayden’s ailment is different, a torn
hamstring. Still, it has the same effect, as the Bears will be without Hayden
for the remainder of the season due to the injury, according to Brad Biggs of
The Chicago Tribune.
Hayden will undergo surgery on his torn hamstring in the
near future. Following the procedure, he will require six to eight months of
While Hayden’s loss certainly hurts, Biggs notes that the
Bears might have a suitable replacement in former sixth-round pick Isaiah Frey.
The second-year corner spent all of last season on the team’s practice squad,
but he has shown up “a different player,” according to Biggs.
While Frey clearly wants to advance his NFL career, he
responded to questions about his potential promotion tactfully, respecting
Hayden and his recent injury.
“I am not really thinking about that right now,” he said. “I
am just doing what the coaches ask me to do. A good friend of mine, a good
teammate, injured himself. I can’t even explain how much (Hayden)O helps. He
helps me continuously and he is going to continue to help me.”
Beyond Hayden, the Bears have also lost defensive end Turk
McBride for the year after he suffered a torn Achilles’ tendon.
