Black and Blue all over: Clark cracks rib

Posted by ESPN.com’s Kevin Seifert

Chicago tight end Desmond Clark revealed on a radio show that he cracked a rib in the third quarter of Sunday night’s 21-15 loss at Green Bay, making his status uncertain for this weekend’s game against Pittsburgh. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Sun-Times has details.

Clark actually spent some time at a Green Bay hospital following the injury. He’s only missed two games in his 11-year career, playing in 147 of a possible 149 contests.

The Bears do have decent depth at the position after deciding to keep four tight ends on their 53-man roster. Without Clark, starter Greg Olsen would be backed up by Kellen Davis and Michael Gaines. We should know more later Wednesday when the Bears distribute their first injury report of the week.
