Eddie Jackson Injured His Hamstring on the Bears’ Second Defensive Snap and is Doubtful to Return

Chicago Bears

Injuries are starting to take a toll on the Bears.

Up front, they’re without Khalil Mack. And while Robert Quinn (COVID) and Akiem Hicks (groin) are making their returns to the lineup after missing last week, it looks like Chicago has already lost another key defender in the early going of their game against the 49ers.

Eddie Jackson went down with a hamstring injury on the second defensive snap of the game. Jackson, who has played on every defensive snap entering today’s game, is doubtful to return. The 2018 first-team All-Pro went down after chasing in coverage on an overthrown deep ball on 2nd-and-10. But came up lame, limped to the sideline, and ultimately into the locker room. It didn’t look good from the jump, so it’s unsurprising to see Jackson as doubtful to return.

In his place, the Bears have Teez Tabor, Marqui Christian, and DeAndre Houston-Carson who can rotate and play next to Tashaun Gipson Sr. But because Gipson has been dealing with injury issues through the early portions of this season, we’d be wise to keep an eye on which safeties are getting burn this afternoon.
