SHARE Bears safety Chris Prosinski ready when called

Antrel Rolle injured the MCL in his knee on the final play of practice two Fridays ago.

Chris Prosinski was ready.

“If a guy’s nicked up,” he said Monday at Halas Hall, “I’m ready to step in there.”

The safety, brought to shore up the Bears’ special teams in Week 4, starred Thursday in his second-straight start. He recorded nine tackles and forced an Eddie Lacy fumble in perhaps the best game of his career.

“I was ready. I was prepared mentally,” he said. “But there’s really nothing you can substitute to get the actual reps. For me, it’s my fifth year. I’ve started a few games. So again I was just excited for the opportunity and wanted to make the most of it. …

“I’ve been in situations where I’ve been the back up and been thrown into the game,” he said. “So I’m always going to be prepared, whatever my role’s going to be.”
