Bears' Darnell Mooney (ankle) will not return this season

Chicago Bears receiver Darnell Mooney suffered an ankle injury in the team's Week 12 loss to the New York Jets, and will undergo season-ending surgery.

What It Means:

Mooney appeared to be in significant pain after suffering an ankle injury in Week 12, and was barely able to put any weight on his leg as he was helped to the locker room. He will now unfortunately miss the remainder of the season as he undergoes season-ending surgery, but will hopefully be able to make a full recovery for the 2023 season.

Mooney dealt with all the highs and lows of the Bears' offense this season, operating as the lead receiver as the new coaching staff figured out how to run their offense. He'll finish the season with 40 catches for 493 yards and 2 touchdowns, and will hopefully return to an even better offense next season. The Bears' receiver depth chart was already paper-thin before Mooney's injury, so there will be a chance for Chase Claypool or Byron Pringle to emerge as the team's top wideout.
