Bears Put Hillenmeyer on IR
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer will miss the rest of the season after the Bears put him on injured reserve because of a concussion he sustained in the preseason.

After being hurt in the third preseason game, Hillenmeyer was cleared to return and played in Chicago's opener against Detroit on Sunday but was removed from the game at halftime after he became ill.

Hillenmeyer filled in at middle linebacker for injured Brian Urlacher last season and made a career-high 105 tackles. In his seven years with the Bears, he has made 69 starts.
