In NFC North news, the Chicago Bears announced today that first round draft choice and Wisconsin native Gabe Carimi was placed in injured reserve, thus ending his season. Carimi injured his knee in the second game of the year. He was the Outland Trophy winner last season while at Wisconsin and was the 29th overall selection in last spring’s draft.
While Carimi started the season, the Bears offensive line has adusted to his absence and have been playing well without the rookie.
With the roster spot opened up by the loss of Carimi, the Bears have moved tackle Levi Horn from the practice squad to the active roster. Horn has been on the Bears’ practice squad for most of the last two years since signing as an undrafted free agent out of Montana in 2010.
