Bears safety Quintin Demps is out indefinitely after suffering a broken arm on Sunday, coach John Fox told reporters Monday.
Demps fractured his left forearm while tackling Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell in the fourth quarter of the Bears’ 23-17 win. Bell kneed Demps in the forearm after catching a pass and running full speed while Demps tried a low tackle.
This is the fourth injury to a Bears’ first stringer that will cause significant time on the sideline. Demps joins receivers Cameron Meredith (left knee) and Kevin White (shoulder), and inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman (left pec).
Authentic Kids Matt Garza Jersey Demps has 12 combined tackles and one assist so far this season and has a career total of 312 combined tackles since 2008.
Adam Gotsis Authentic Jersey Kyle Rudolph, TE, Vikings: While Diggs and Thielen thrived working with Keenum on Sunday, Rudolph’s day was almost completely quiet, as he caught 1 of 2 targets for 1.4 PPR fantasy points. It’s especially troubling for Rudolph, who was started in 78.1 percent of ESPN leagues, that the Vikings have been targeting wide receivers at a greater rate than usual. Keenum threw 19 of his 33 passes to Diggs and Thielen alone, and 23 of his 33 passes total to his wideouts on Sunday.
Philip Rivers, QB, Los Angeles Chargers: For only the eighth time in his 183-game NFL career, Rivers was intercepted as many as three times, resulting in a ghastly 3.5-point fantasy score on Sunday. That was the 11th-worst single-game effort of his career, and it was yet another stinker against the division-rival Chiefs, who certainly seem to have had Rivers’ number during his 14-year career. Rivers has managed only 39 career games with fewer than 10 fantasy points, and nine of them have come against the Chiefs. He has averaged just 12.78 fantasy points in his 24 career games against them.
