NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Fuller is heading to injured reserve. The team later confirmed the move. The corner could be a candidate to return after sitting out eight weeks.
Fuller started 16 games last season and Bears coaches believed the 5-foot-11 corner could make a leap in his third year. Alas, knee troubles wiped out most, if not all, of his season.
Fuller dealt with a knee injury during training camp and underwent a knee scope in mid-August.
After a 0-3 start, it already appears a lost season in Chicago. At least John Fox should get a long look at his young players.
