Drue Tranquill slow to get up after tackle

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Chicago Bears Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Linebacker Drue Tranquill made a clutch tackle when he brought down wide receiver Zay Jones in front of the first down marker. Unfortunately, the rookie was slow to get up and may be replaced in the meantime by either Denzel Perryman or Nick Dzubnar. Perryman has been on the sideline in a snow cap the entire first half, which means he likely aggravated a lingering injury prior to the game.

If Tranquill doesn’t return, the Chargers will be down two middle linebackers.
