(WSCR) – The Miami Dolphins are on their third string quarterback and their left tackle is attempting to play with a separated shoulder. The Bears, on the other hand, were nearly 100% healthy heading into the game until news broke of Pisa Tinoisamoa’s injury.
Chicago Bears linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa will miss Thursday night’s game against the Dolphins in Miami because of a knee problem.
Tinoisamoa, who has 41 tackles this season, was listed as out on Wednesday’s injury report issued by the team. Nick Roach is expected to start in his place.
Tinoisamoa missed 14 games a year ago for the Bears because of knee injuries.
