Bushrod (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Miami.

Bushrod's return is reassuring for Jay Cutler, as the Miami front four has a good amount of talent.

Bushrod (knee) is out for Sunday's game against Carolina.

With Bushrod out, the Bears will start Michael Ola at left tackle. It's a slight concern for Jay Cutler.

Bushrod (knee) was unable to practice Thursday, ESPNChicago.com's Michael C. Wright reports.

After being limited in practice a day earlier, Bushrod had an unexpected downgrade in status Thursday, putting his availability for Sunday's game against the Panthers in jeopardy. Last summer's signing of Bushrod has given some peace of mind with the big left tackle protecting his blind side, and his potential absence could throw the effectiveness of the Bears' offense out of whack. If Bushrod is unable to go Sunday, the Bears would likely be down three starters on the offensive line as center Roberto Garza and left guard Matt Slauson also appear unlikely to play due to injury.

Bears agreed to terms on a five-year contract with LT Jermon Bushrod, formerly of the Saints.

The Bears were on a mission to upgrade Jay Cutler's protection, and they've done so slightly. Although Bushrod is regarded as a top-tier left tackle because he's kept Drew Brees upright, he actually graded out similarly to J'Marcus Webb last season. Cutler doesn't get the ball out nearly as quickly as Brees. Still, the Bears certainly know what they're getting as offensive line coach Aaron Kromer worked with Bushrod in New Orleans. At the very least, they've added depth to a thin unit.

The Bears are reportedly "in talks" with free agent LT Jermon Bushrod.

The offensive-line needy Bears already missed out on Phil Loadholt, Andy Levitre and Louis Vasquez. Bushrod is far from elite, but he'd certainly be an upgrade on J'Marcus Webb. Drew Brees took just 26 sacks last season.

Free agent LT Jermon Bushrod is shooting down rumors that he's seeking "Jahri Evans money."

He better, because he won't get it. Part of a somewhat soft offensive tackle market, Bushrod is unlikely to approach the seven-year, $56.7 million contract teammate Evans received in New Orleans. Bushrod turns 29 before the season. We'd anticipate something more along the lines of $30 million across five years.
