Adam Shaheen and Aaron Lynch in concussion protocol for the Bears

Adam Shaheen and Aaron Lynch in concussion protocol for the Bears

The Chicago Bears have been very lucky in the health department all season long, but they had two players exit last night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings with concussion symptoms. Today they have placed both outside linebacker Aaron Lynch and tight end Adam Shaheen in concussion protocol according to Chris Emma of 670 The Score. Lynch was removed from the game early on after only playing 5 snaps on defense, and Shaheen seemed to have hit his head after catching the two-point conversion mid-way through the fourth quarter. Lynch has been a key reserve on the Bears defense all season...

Low and behold, it ended up being the better defense who won the game, and of course that was the Bears’ D. After...

As Vikings' bold plans fell short, they ran for 22 yards against the Bears

Before the Bears had embarked on the three-game win streak that allowed them to enter Sunday’s game with the Vikings atop the NFC North standings, they’d lost a pair of games in which their opponents — the Dolphins and Patriots — had been able to establish a run game against the NFL’s second-ranked rushing defense. The Dolphins gained 161 yards on the ground in a 31-28 overtime win on Oct. 14, before the Patriots put together an efficient complement to Tom Brady, running for 108 yards on 27 carries in New England’s 38-31 win on Oct. 21. That approach certainly figured to be on the...
