What’s going on with Bears NT Eddie Goldman?
It isn’t time to sound the alarm yet, but according to The Athletic’s Adam Jahns, there’s some concern beginning to circulate about Bears NT Eddie Goldman’s availability in Week 1’s Sunday night showdown against the Los Angeles Rams.
Jahns tweeted Wednesday that Chicago’s decision to work out several unemployed defensive linemen this week is a result of a potential Goldman ailment.
There is word circulating that Bears nose tackle Eddie Goldman is dealing with an injury. Not sure what that means for his status yet vs. the Rams or beyond. But the Bears recently worked out three defensive linemen. The first injury report for the week comes out later today.

This would obviously be a huge blow to the Bears’ defense and would force rookie seventh-round pick Khyiris Tonga into a much bigger role than initially expected.
Goldman missed the entire 2020 season after opting out due to COVID-19.
#Bears roster moves:
We have released DT Auzoyah Alufohai and RB Artavis Pierce from the practice squad, and have signed DT Margus Hunt and NT Damion Square to the practice squad.

The Bears added Margus Hunt to the practice squad shortly after Jahns’ tweet, adding fuel to the fire surrounding Goldman.
We’ll provide updates on Goldman as soon as they become available.
