Bears DTs Ratliff, Goldman, CB Porter injured in preseason game

Sunday August 30th, 2015

Chicago Bears defensive tackles Jeremiah Ratliff and Eddie Goldman and cornerback Tracy Porter left the team's preseason game against the Bengals with injuries.

Ratliff and Goldman are listed as Chicago's top two nose tackles. Ratliff suffered a first-half ankle injury and the team ruled him out for the game. He has already been suspended the first three games of the season for a substance violation stemming from a 2013 DWI arrest.

Goldman, the team's second-round pick out of Florida State, suffered a concussion while tackling Bengals running back Jeremy Hill in the first quarter and left for the rest of the game. Goldman was expected to fill in for Ratliff while the latter serves his suspension.

Veteran cornerback Porter left the game with a hamstring injury. He was making his preseason debut after missing the first two games with an injury to the same hamstring and did not return.
