The Chicago Bears gained another bad news after losing to the Tennessee Titans at 27-21. The Bears finished the game with another injured player.

Danny Trevathan was injured while defending a running play in the late part of fourth quarter. It was believed that Trevathan injured his right knee and there is a possibility that it could be a season-ending injury.

Trevathan was a key defensive player for the Bears and he was also one of the team's key leaders. His teammates were disappointed by the news of another injury especially to a teammate like him.

Coach John Fox said via Chicago Bears that Trevathan's injury appeared to be a serious one after the game. He also said, "But we do not have all the tests run to give you a real solid prognosis at this point."

Defensive end Akiem Hicks said on CBS Chicago that they have to get the next guy to step forward. Hicks continued, "... I know that one touched me personally because that's my guy, one of the guys I came in with as a free agent, built a great relationship with. I consider that (guy) a friend. A friend first, I feel for him."

Hicks added that a lot of his teammates were tired of having to look on the bright side. Hicks also said, "... We want that result. I know I do. It's part of this game and it's something that's hard to swallow. But as much as we're fighting through things, I know we're ready for a result. I'm ready for the result."

Trevathan's injury added another problem for the Bears that already have 14 players on the injured reserve including receiver Kevin White, quarterback Brian Hoyer, right guard Kyle Long, tight end Zach Miller, right, cornerback Kyle Fuller, outside linebacker Lamarr Houston, center Hroniss Grasu and defensive linemen Will Sutton and Ego Ferguson.

Quarterback Jay Cutler, outside linebacker Leonard Floyd and left guard Josh Sitton were also unable to play on Sunday because of injuries while inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman and receiver Alshon Jeffery were still suspended due to a violation of PEDs.

However, there was still a little good news for the Bears as nose tackle Eddie Goldman and right tackle Bobby Massie both returned to the starting lineup. Goldman made a key play late in the game, forcing Tennessee to punt after limiting DeMarco Murray to a one-yard reception on third-and-two.

Quarterback Matt Barkley made his first NFL start with three touchdown passes while tight end Daniel Brown and receiver Deonte Thompson registered their first NFL touchdown reception.

The team is expected to update the status of Danny Trevathan on Monday at Halas Hall but it appears that he could be the newest Bears' casualty to this season. The Bears dropped in the team standings with a 2-9 record.
