Chicago bears received a blow to the depth of their line of attack.
On Tuesday, the team announced that it had placed defenseman Dakota Dozier on the reserve/injured list. The club signed defender Jason Stanley to fill in the squad.
Dozier swapped with a starter at right-back during the Bears’ off-season training before being taken away with an injury during a mandatory mini-camp last week.
The injury has added uncertainty to the Bears’ offensive line as we head towards training camp.
Dozier was selected in the fourth round by the New York Jets in 2014. During his seven-year career, he played 27 games for the Jets and Minnesota Vikings. He appeared in six games in 2021 after starting all 16 games for the Vikes in 2020 and was signed by the Bears in March.
