Bears place Brandon Boykin on injured reserve

The Chicago Bears placed cornerback Brandon Boykin on injured reserve.

What It Means:

Boykin was diagnosed with an injured pectoral. If it isn't season ending, he could be released later on with an injury settlement. There was a report in June that the 26-year-old had been diagnosed with a career-threatening hip injury.

In limited time in 2015, Boykin racked up 25 total tackles, one interception and five passes defensed.
