Micah Parsons

Bears to face Micah Parsons without OT Larry Borom in Week 8

The already impossible task of stopping Dallas Cowboys edge rusher Micah Parsons from destroying the Chicago Bears’ offense just got, well, even more impossible.

Right tackle Larry Borom will be out of the Bears’ lineup with a concussion. He’s likely to be replaced by veteran Riley Reiff, who was signed at the start of training camp to compete for a starting job on the edge.

In addition to Borom, center Lucas Patrick will miss Week 8 with a toe injury. He’s been placed on injured reserve and will be out for the next month or more.

Parsons has eight sacks through seven games this season and is currently Pro Football Focus’ second-highest graded edge player with a 91.3 score.

Kickoff between the Chicago Bears and Cowboys is scheduled for 1:00 pm. EST (12 p.m. CST) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
