Rookie tackle Gabe Carimi hurt his right knee in a Week Two loss to the New Orleans Saints.
He was on schedule to play this week, but had a tough practice Thursday after participating fully.
Carimi wasn’t able to practice yesterday or today with his sore knee. He has been ruled out of Monday night’s game because of it.
He was expected to be active, but not starting on Monday night.
Lance Louis will get his third consecutive start at right tackle, a position he has held down pretty well, since replacing the injured Carimi.
Expect for Carimi to be in line to start in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions.
The Bears like the starting five on the offensive line, but Carimi is a first-round talent and they want him on the field pretty soon.
Carimi is the only normal starter for the Bears that will be held out with an injury.
The Eagles are rather healthy as well, defensive end Juqua Parker is doubtful with a high ankle sprain.
