Ogunleye's season -- and possibly his Bears tenure -- is over

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears defensive end Adewale Ogunleye will miss the remainder of the season because of a fracture in his lower left leg.

Ogunleye, the team leader with 6.5 sacks, was injured during the third quarter of the Bears' 31-7 loss at Baltimore on Sunday.

Bears coach Lovie Smith said Monday that Ogunleye won't need surgery. But with an expiring contract, Ogunleye's future with the Bears (5-9) has been put in doubt.
