Linebacker depth tested

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

Brain Urlacher has often said he believes the Bears have the deepest linebacking corps in the league. That depth was tested Sunday when Nick Roach injured his hip in the first quarter. Roach was the replacement for Pisa Tinoisamoa, who was inactive with a knee injury. Rod Wilson replaced Roach at strong-side or "Sam" linebacker but did not register a tackle.

"He hadn't played a lot of 'Sam' in his career but he did a good job today," Urlacher said. "We're going to need our [other linebackers], obviously."

ESPN says he made three tackles. I remember seeing one of them.

This is when we usually talk about the versatility of Hunter Hillenmeyer. Never that flashy, but he is one of those players you knew would just do the job. The defense is not as good without Tinoisamoa, but maybe Wilson can step it up.

Nobody is talking about Roach for some reason. Lovie said his injury wasn't serious. Is he out too?
