Chris Spencer injury: Bears center hurts knee, return questionable

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Spencer was the last interior lineman the Bears had available before he went down.

According to multiple tweets, Chicago Bears offensive lineman Chris Spencer is questionable to return to the Bears' game against the Minnesota Vikings due to a knee injury. With Spencer out and Chilo Rachal already on the reserve non-football injury list, the Bears are now out of interior offensive lineman.

The Bears currently lead the Vikings, 25-10, in the third quarter of their NFC North matchup. The Bears have struggled to run the ball as they've totaled only 67 yards rushing on 24 carries, which speaks to the concerns along the offensive line. Quarterback Jay Cutler is having a good game with 155 yards on 19-for-23 passing with one touchdown and one interception.

The Bears (7-3) may be getting away with it now, but the issues along their offensive line must be addressed down the line if they want to continue to run the ball and keep Cutler upright.
