Johnny Knox Injury Update: Bears WR Set For Surgery

The Chicago Bears, who have been seen their offense decimated by injuries over the past month, will be without the services of WR Johnny Knox for an extended period of time, as he will undergo surgery on Monday. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Knox will undergo surgery to stabilize a vertebrae in his back following a scary injury in the loss to the Seattle Seahawks:

This will be another significant loss for the Chicago Bears, who are already missing both Jay Cutler and Matt Forte because of injuries. Knox has developed into a solid receiving threat for the Bears, as he has made 37 catches for 727 yards and 2 TD's this season.
