Bilal Nichols Leaves Bears Game With Injury

Nichols is one of the team's starting defensive linemen

The Chicago Bears’ defense is having a good start to the season, but now they’re faced with a potential injury issue as Bilal Nichols left Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos.

Nichols, who has seen time at both defensive end and tackle for the Bears in the early going this season, was forced to leave the game with a hand injury, and the team announced that he will not return.

Nichols had been dealing with a knee injury prior to Sunday’s game, but suited up as the Bears searched for their first victory of the season.

The lineman appeared in 14 games last season, forcing two fumbles and registering three sacks.
