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.
