Grossman Finished Before The Start

Chicago Sun-Times:
When he removed his helmet on a cart in the middle of the field at the Edward Jones Dome, the look on Rex Grossman's face as he sat there with arms folded hinted at the worst.

The news at halftime confirmed it. The Bears saw the 2005 season flash before their eyes Friday night in their second preseason game, a 17-13 loss to the St. Louis Rams, because Grossman, the man the franchise has its hopes pinned on, broke his left ankle after he was twisted down by linebacker Trev Faulk and sat on. Following surgery this coming week, rehabilitation will take three to four months -- meaning if he returns at all this year, it will not be until the final few games.

Standing later with the aid of crutches, Grossman was matter-of-fact.
Man, this sucks! It is going to be an other long season for my beloved Bears.
