SHARE Stephen Paea ankle injury could sideline him up to two weeks

Bears defensive tackle Stephen Paea, who was having one of the strongest training camps, had a setback Saturday, suffering a mid-ankle injury.

On Sunday, he didn’t practice, while wearing a walking boot.

“I mean, you know, it is what it is, it’s football,” Paea said. “I wish I never got hurt, but just got to stay on top of it and come back.”

Paea said the estimate is that he’ll miss a week to two weeks.

“It’s a competition everyday,” said Paea, who was battling with Matt Toeaina to start. “As far as I see it, I come back and I’ve got to compete for it again.

“I just have to get my mind right. I’ve worked too hard for this, and it comes down to in camp you get hurt. I’ll just play it by ear and see how it feels.”
