Hamstring to sideline Wolfe 3-4 weeks

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Perhaps Garrett Wolfe fell victim to the cold, he's not really sure, but with a pretty serious hamstring pull it doesn't matter now.

The Bears' leading special teams tackler will miss three to four weeks following his injury Sunday on the opening kickoffs, meaning the Bears will have to make the playoffs to see Wolfe in action again this season.

"I've had hamstring issues since I left college,'' said the third-round pick from 2007. "This is probably the third time I've had a hamstring problem. That makes it even more disappointing."

Wide receiver Marty Booker suffered a cracked rib in the 23-10 victory and coach Lovie Smith called him questionable for Thursday's game with New Orleans. Defensive tackle Tommie Harris was held out during the second half after tweaking his right hamstring. He left the stadium with ice on it.

Wolfe was running downfield and made a turn to cut in when he felt his hamstring go. He was still limping Monday afternoon in the locker room. His loss is considerable for a special teams unit that has been working to piece it together all along. Wolfe leads the team with 21 special teams stops, seven better than his closest competition.

"I think this is something I can come back from," he said. "It's just like anything. It's going to take time to heal. I'm not exactly sure how long it will take, but it's definitely going to take some time to heal.

"I felt warm. I felt as good as I could be before the game. But obviously I think the weather had some type of effect on my body. I don't think it affects everyone's body, but when you're running downfield on kickoff, you're trying to run as fast as you can. It can have more of an effect than any other phase."
