The Chicago Bears are getting ready for the huge week one matchup against the Green Bay Packers. It has been a long off-season heading into this moment but we are finally here and ready to go.
Well, we still have to wait till Sunday there is still NFL football happening on Thursday night as the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Detroit Lions. However, it is going to be awesome watching the Chicago Bears take on their biggest rival to open their season.
There is a new wrinkle in the Green Bay Packers Chicago Bears rivalry these days. Aaron Rodgers is no longer the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. He has moved on and is now going to be the quarterback of the New York Jets.
Now it is time for the Jordan Love era to begin in Green Bay. The last time the steam transitioned to a new quarterback it worked out very well for them. Bears fans are hoping that the history does not repeat itself a third time.
The Chicago Bears may be catching a break against the Green Bay Packers.
It does seem like Jordan Love is being seen as an NFL quarterback play all accounts. However, until he suits up for a full season it is going to be hard to tell what he actually is.
Now, That sounds like one of his great weapons could be missing in his first game of the 2023 season. Obviously, that would be a big blow to the Green Bay Packers offense.
On Thursday, Packers wide receiver Christian Watson missed practice for the second straight day. He has become a very big part of their office so missing him for any significant amount of time would be very bad news for them.
Watson is currently dealing with a hamstring injury but nobody knows the severity of it. That is something we may come to find out over the next couple of days but it’s probably not something the Green Bay Packers want to reveal right now.
Obviously, you never want anybody to be hurt. There is no doubt that the Packers missing Watson would be an advantage for the Chicago Bears come Sunday.
This would be an injury that makes Jordan Love his job even harder than it is going to be in his first start of the 2023 season with the Packers. This will also give the Bears’ defense the option to pay closer attention to other weapons on the Packers’ offense if Watson is not there.
Watson isn’t the only player that the Green Bay Packers could be missing on offense either. Romeo Doubs could be out too as he has been hurt for a few weeks. If Love is missing both of his top two receivers, he is in big trouble.
We do not know the status of his game on Sunday but we will find out shortly. Missing practice for two straight days Is not a good time but there are still a couple of days left to go before the first game.
