Chicago Bears right tackle Jordan Mills, who has missed the team's first two preseason games with a left foot injury, will not play in the Bears' third preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, Adam Jahns of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Mills had surgery in January to repair a fractured metatarsal. A little more than two weeks ago, the tackle felt some pain in his left foot, so the Bears put him in a walking boot. Though he missed Monday's practice, he is now out of the boot.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
“My foot is doing great,” Mills said. “I’m taking it day by day. I should be back soon, hopefully next week.”
“There was a little soreness when I hurt it two weeks ago,” Mills said. “But we’re just being careful. That’s why they put me in the boot, just to be cautious.
“I’m a 318-pound man applying force to it every day, so I’ve got to take it easy.”
