Biggs: Moore Out For Sunday, Bears Still Have Options
(WSCR) D.J. Moore didn’t finish last Sunday’s game and he won’t play in this one either.
Moore, who was ejected in Sunday’s win over the Lions for charging at Matthew Stafford, will miss this weekend’s Chargers game with a sprained ankle.
He suffered the injury during practice on Wednesday.
“In doing a little digging and talking to some people, it sounds like D.J. is definitely not going to play against the Chargers,” Brad Biggs of The National Football Post and Chicago Tribune told The Mully and Hanley Show on Friday. “The hope is that it’s not a long term thing — that he’s out maybe only a week. But without D.J., you have options here: The first one that comes to mind is Corey Graham. Plug him in and let him play nickel. … Option two would be to take Tim Jennings and move him inside, just in nickel situations, and maybe have Zack Bowman play on the outside.”

Some analysts have called this a “trap game’ for the Bears, as the Bears carry a four-game winning streak, and the Chargers own a four-game losing streak. But Biggs isn’t buying it.
“I don’t think the Bears are going to fall into a trap game here. The Chargers just have way, way too much talent on that roster, especially on offense, for this to be a trap game.”
