Bears Placing LB Danny Trevathan On Injured Reserve With Ruptured Patella Tendon

The Chicago Bears are placing LB Danny Trevathan on injured reserve Monday after he suffered a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee, per Zach Zaidman.

Bears HC John Fox told reporters after Sunday’s loss to the Titans that Trevathan suffered a serious knee injury that could be a torn ACL. However, is appears as though further testing showed a ruptured patella tendon.

Trevathan, 26, is a former sixth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2012. After four years in Denver, Trevathan signed a four-year, $24.5 million contract that includes $12 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $1.5 million this year and another $2 million in 2017.

In 2016, Trevathan has appeared in nine games and recorded 66 tackles, one sack, and four pass defenses for the Bears.
