SEATTLE--Tight end Desmond Clark is out of the game with a right knee injury.
He's sitting on a table behind the bench with ice wrapping it. Clark was injured when he was cut down by Seattle cornerback Marcus Trufant at the end of a seven-yard reception on the Bears' second possession. It looked like the knee could have been hyperextended, but just like Lovie Smith doesn't play doctor, neither do we.
The Bears can ill afford to lose Clark's services. He's far and away the best blocking tight end on the roster and that's been a problem area for Greg Olsen. Rookie Kellen Davis has proven to be an able receiver but the Bears get off the bus running and they need a tight end who can block.
