LAKE FOREST – John Fox is beginning to not like his injury reports the more the 2016 season continues.
On Tuesday it appears he got some more bad news.
Per a report from the NFL Network cornerback Kyle Fuller is headed to the IR as he continues to struggle with knee injuries. Ian Rapoport has the initial report which also say that Fuller may not be kept out the entire season with the injury.
#Bears CB Kyle Fuller is going to Injured Reserve, source said. A candidate to return to that D in 8 weeks. But tough one now.

Fuller hasn’t seen much of the practice field let alone the game field in an injury-riddled start to the 2016 season. He missed most of training camp with knee issues and had arthroscopic knee surgery back in August.
So far Fuller has yet to play in a preseason or a regular season game.
The first round pick of the Bears in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech, Fuller has 119 tackles and six interceptions for the Bears in the last two seasons.
