The Chicago Bears have struggled with injuries at offensive tackle since training camp, and that bad luck has carried over into the regular season.

Last week against the Los Angeles Rams, Chicago lost two left tackles to injury in Jason Peters (quad) and Larry Borom (ankle), which left backup right tackle Elijah Wilkinson to step in as their relief.

The Bears placed Borom on injured reserve with a high ankle sprain, where he’ll miss at least the next three weeks. That leaves an already-thin tackle group even more vulnerable following second-round rookie Teven Jenkins landing on IR following back surgery.

Chicago also elevated defensive tackle Margus Hunt and offensive tackle Alex Taylor from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday’s game, where teams are allowed to carry a 55-man roster on game day.

While Borom will miss at least the next three weeks, there’s better news on the Peters front. Peters was limited all week during practice, and he’s officially questionable for Sunday’s game.
