Bears rookie FS Major Wright could be out for up to a month with a hamstring injury, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting, citing a league source.
Wright, a third-round pick, injured his hamstring in the first quarter of the Bears' Week Two game against the Cowboys. An MRI exam revealed that the injury was a second-degree strain, according to the report.
This is the third injury that has sidelined Wright since training camp. A groin issue bothered him before he broke a finger in the first preseason game.
The way we see it
Wright had been rotating in at free safety as starter Chris Harris' primary backup, and some expected Wright to eventually surpass Harris on the depth chart this season. He may have been the opening-day starter if not for the injuries.
It has been a rough start for Wright, but the Bears aren't ready to tag him as "injury-prone" quite yet.
