Tinoisamoa Did Not Play Last Week Against The Lions

(WSCR)Pisa Tinoisamoa has been dealing with injuries throughout his entire Bears tenure. He missed most of last season with a knee injury, and is facing similar issues this year.

Tinoisamoa sat out last week’s win at Detroit and did not practice this week after undergoing what coach Lovie Smith said was minor arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

He will miss his second straight game because of a knee injury when the Chicago Bears play the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Nick Roach, who started at strongside linebacker in his place against the Lions, is questionable with a back injury. He went through a full practice Friday.
