Even though Eddie Goldman had a pair of practices under his belt this week, the Chicago Bears nose tackle won’t play this week.
#Bears roster move:
NT Eddie Goldman (knee) did not travel with the team to Cleveland and has been downgraded to Out for Sunday's game. We also have flexed DT Margus Hunt from the practice squad.

The Bears announced Goldman did not travel with the team to Cleveland for Sunday’s game against the Browns. And with that, Goldman was downgraded to OUT for Sunday’s game. That makes three straight games to start the year for a player who hasn’t played since December 2019.
In a corresponding move, defensive tackle Margus Hunt has been promoted to the expanded game day roster. The Bears will soon have to make a decision with Hunt, who received a flexed roster promotion last week. But we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. In the meantime, I hope the Bears won’t be stung too much by not having their starting nose tackle against an awesome rush attack.
