Patrick Mannelly feared to have season-ending knee injury

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears veteran long snapper Pat Mannelly injured his knee in the second quarter. And while fullback Tyler Clutts did a serviceable job in emergency duty, the Bears are concerned that Mannelly may be lost for the season, according to a league source.

Mannelly made his team record 147th consecutive start on Sunday, but he was not able to finish the game, after his injury.

According to The Sideline View website, David Binn would be the best available snapper. Binn, 39, last played for the San Diego Chargers. But his last game was in 2010, for the Chargers.

Mannelly has also played in a club record 215 games since joining the Bears as a sixth-round pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. He's considered one of the league's best snappers.
