When Alex Brown limped off the field during the fourth quarter Sunday afternoon at Soldier, unable to put weight on his left foot, it didn't look promising for the defensive end.
But the veteran vowed after the Bears' 17-14 victory over Pittsburgh to not miss any time, and it looks like that will be the case.
"Alex Brown has an ankle sprain,'' coach Lovie Smith said at his press conference this afternoon. "No more than that. He should be good to go.''
Brown, a fourth-round pick in 2002, has not missed a game in his professional or college career because of injury. He could be in the running for NFC defensive player of the week as he had two sacks and helped force an interception with a pressure of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
