Eddie Goldman gets banged up, sticks it out

Bears rookie nose tackle Eddie Goldman had quite a rough game on Sunday in the Bears’ 18-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Goldman left Sunday’s game early when he tweaked his ankle after being blocked low by a Chiefs lineman. Later in the game, on the play when Chiefs’ Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles injured his knee, it appeared Goldman also was shaken up on the play.

Goldman returned to action and managed to finish the game.

The young tackle appears to be making strides and is becoming a regular contributor to the defense. Even with veteran Jeremiah Ratliff returning to action, Goldman will continue to get reps as the Bears prepare for the future.
