Julius Peppers Injury: Bears DE Dealing With Plantar Fasciitis

Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers is dealing with plantar fasciitis and general foot soreness according to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune.

Peppers has recorded four tackles in the Bears' three preseason games, including two in Friday night's 20-17 Bears victory over the New York Giants. Peppers also registered two tackles in the Bears' 33-31 preseason win over the Washington Redskins on Aug. 18.

Just as the foot pain is not expected to keep him out of any regular season games, Peppers has been a picture of consistency throughout his career. He has played all 16 games during both of his years with the Bears and has never played fewer than 12 games in any season of his 11-year NFL career.

Last season, Peppers recorded 11 sacks and 37 tackles while forcing seven fumbles. For his career, Peppers averages 43 tackles and nine sacks per season.
