The Chicago Bears continue to deal with significant quarterback injuries during the 2022 season. Backup quarterback Trevor Siemian is now undergoing season-ending surgery to deal with an oblique injury. Siemian started last week’s loss against the Jets.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Friday.
Siemian was chosen in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft, with the 250th overall pick. He was the last quarterback taken in that draft, and already had a non-football job at the time of his drafting, expecting to not be selected at all.
The Bears signed Siemian to a two-year deal in March of 2022. He’s played in just two games for the team, starting one of them (last week against the Jets). He’s completed 15 of 26 passes for 184 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
