Hamstring pull not expected to sideline Clark

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Desmond Clark was added to the injury report as questionable with a hamstring injury earlier today but the veteran tight end is expected to start Sunday vs. Jacksonville.

Clark arrived at Halas Hall Saturday morning and reported that his hamstring was tight, according to a team spokesman, and it is an injury that has been nagging him.

Clark is tied for fourth on the team with 31 receptions and quarterback Kyle Orton needs to get the tight ends more involved in the struggling passing game. His injury could mean increased time for Greg Olsen and it could also mean fullback Jason Davis, active for only his second game, gets more playing time.

In his sixth season with the Bears, Clark has missed just two regular-season games since arriving in 2003. He had a sprained knee in preseason and again late last month but has not missed any game action.
