Bears offensive lineman Lucas Patrick will miss the remainder of the season after having surgery on his injured toe, coach Matt Eberflus announced Wednesday.
"He actually had surgery a couple weeks ago and he will not be back with us this year," Eberflus said. "He's been in every meeting, been engaged … he had the toe injury and we ended up surgically repairing that. But he's been engaged the last couple of weeks."
The Bears previously placed Patrick on injured reserve Oct. 27 with the toe injury, which occurred in the first quarter of a 33-14 win over the Patriots Oct. 24 in New England. The veteran would've been eligible to return for this Sunday's game against the Jets.
Patrick, who signed with the Bears in March, missed time earlier this season after injuring his right thumb July 28 during the second training camp practice. He didn't return to practice until Sept. 5 but played as a reserve in the season opener against the 49ers.
The sixth-year pro bounced between right and left guard through the first six weeks of the season, then made his first start at center Week 7 in New England before leaving with the injury.
