When the Bears traded DeMarco Murray, DeMarco’s name wasn’t on the list

ABOUT

Updated May 10, 2018 10:16:18 Bears wide receiver DeMarco Sanders was one of two players on the team to miss a game with an injury and had surgery on his knee.

It’s not clear whether Sanders was also a victim of the team’s offensive line.

He missed five games last season.

Sanders, 25, has averaged 17.7 yards per catch and has played in every game this season.

He was injured in Week 6, against the Seahawks.

He played the last seven games and was limited in practice and was released after a game.

His injury occurred after Seattle’s Marcus Burley ran over his knee in the first half.

The injury is not believed to be a significant one.

He will likely miss at least two weeks.

The team signed Murray, who has played well in his first two seasons with Chicago, and signed wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who had three touchdowns in three games.

Sanders and Marshall have combined for 57 receptions for 837 yards and eight touchdowns.

Murray is a seventh-round draft pick of the Vikings in 2015.

The Bears lost guard Jake Long to a knee injury, and left tackle Kyle Long to an ankle injury.

Linebacker David Bass missed the Bears’ loss to the Cowboys.
