Broken collarbone sidelines Jimoh for season

SHARE Broken collarbone sidelines Jimoh for season

Special teams performer Ade Jimoh will miss the remainder of the season with a broken collarbone suffered on a punt return in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss at Seattle.

Jimoh collided with Seahawks special teams standout Niko Koutouvides and was forced out of the game. Originally, it was called a shoulder injury, but Jimoh revealed the medical findings Monday afternoon in the locker room at Halas Hall.

The Bears will need to replace him on the 53-man roster. In-house candidates include safety Leonard Peters and cornerback Greg Fassitt.
