Bears place linebacker Jerrell Freeman on injured reserve

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears have placed inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman on injured reserve, another hit for a team coming off a three-win season.

A sixth-year pro, Freeman suffered a pectoral injury and concussion in a season-opening loss to Atlanta on Sunday.

Freeman led Chicago with 110 tackles – a team-high 86 solo – last season. He was with the Colts from 2012-2015.
