The Chicago Bears had a terrible game against the New York Jets on Sunday. They were without Justin Fields and learned how important the is to the team because they were so awful without him. Everyone from the defense to special teams to the offense was bad.

There were also some bad injuries in the game. One of the worst ones came to Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney. He is their number-one receiver right now but the worst fears are not at all good for them.

He suffered an ankle injury and it took him out of the game. Now it sounds like he is going to have some more tests on Monday but the fear is that he is going to miss the rest of the season because of it. That would be horrible news for him and the offense.

The Bears are already going to have a really high draft pick but losing a receiver like Mooney is going to make them even worse. Almost everyone else of note on the team is either hurt or was traded away.

The Chicago Bears might be without their number-one receiver for a while.

If this turns out to be the case, they might as well keep Fields out for the season. He is someone that has clearly developed a lot this season and there is no reason to let him go out there and hurt himself even worse. With the offensive line the way that it is, it might be the smart play.

Mooney has had a very interesting year. He hasn’t been as prominent as we’d like to see but Fields didn’t start playing at a high level until recently. They clearly do have some chemistry.

Another problem is that Fields has very little time to throw the ball so Mooney’s opportunities as a receiver are limited. It is something that will be better once the team starts to add more talent.

As of right now, this story is going to be one of the leads all week when it comes to Chicago Bears football. We can only hope that this report ends up not being true so he can finish the season strong.
