It has been a long, miserable season for Chicago Bears fans and things have only gotten worse for them this week.

Now, they’ve lost one of their star players for the rest of the year.

It was announced today that Khalil Mack will be undergoing season-ending surgery on his foot. It’s a major blow to the defense that has been the only thing even resembling a bright spot for the Bears.
It should come as no surprise that Bears fans are having a tough time with this news.

The news even has some fans questioning if they really won the Khalil Mack trade.
I think we've gotten to the point that we can call the Khalil Mack trade a bust.
Raiders got: 2019 1st, 2020 1st, 2019 6th, 2020 3rd.
Bears got: Mack, 2020 2nd & 7th rounders. They still owe Mack $50M. https://t.co/Q9SwFkDoJI

The decision comes after Khalil Mack had missed the Bears’ last two games and had still not healed coming out of the bye. It is just another issue for a team with an offense that is going nowhere because their coaching staff refuses to properly use their promising rookie QB.
Now, the Bears will take on the Ravens without their star this week as they stare down a brutal schedule to finish out the year. It looks like the 3-6 Chicago Bears may be headed for their worst season yet under Matt Nagy.
