The Detroit Lions may have been dealt their most serious blow during training camp on Tuesday, when projected starting tackle Rex Tucker was carted off the field with a knee injury. More details inside.
The only thing that held Rex Tucker back was a streak of bad luck that landed him on IR for three consecutive seasons because of three different injuries. The Bears decided that it was time to cut ties with the former Pro Bowl alternate.
Whether it was Bryan Robinson, Phillip Daniels and Warrick Holdman last year or Jim Miller and James "Big Cat" Williams in 2002, the Bears seem to get rid of at least one established veteran each off-season. This time around will likely be no different.
