Team news: The #Bears have terminated the contract of WR Johnny Knox this morning.

Knox missed the entire 2012 season with a back injury he suffered in the end of the 2011 season and the Bears decided it was time to move on.

Knox is a speedster who had career high 51 catches for 960 yards and 5 TDs in 2010.

Sounds like the end of his career. Really, really sad but after that injury it was good news that he was even able to walk again. Best of luck to him in whatever he goes on to do.

Sad that the injury derailed his once-promising career. If the Bears are releasing him, my guess is they think he's done. Either way, wish him the best.

not only was he grievously injured, but he also lost a LOT of weight during his rehab. got down to around 135 pounds or so, didn't he?

No, apparently he went down to 160 from 190 (or there abouts) before starting to put on the weight again. I don't know if he ever got back to his former weight (he's probably close to it at least). That's still a lot considering he was already pretty skinny and 6' tall.

^That sig quote gets me every time. Laughing I hate Michael Vick, and he had nothing to do with Britt (whom the thread where that quote is from was about). I love how he keeps on tarnishing his image, even after I made a joke about it and was taken personally. Laughing


On topic, I feel horrible for Knox. Hope he can resume living a normal life after recovering from that gruesome injury. If he doesn't play football again, I don't think anyone would blame him.

As of last month it was reported he still can't walk properly, so yeah, he's never playing again obviously.
