The injury was not pretty, as Rolle had his leg rolled up on by another player. It looked like a high-ankle sprain to former NFL head team physician David J. Chao, MD, who said a return will be "difficult."

Rolle, 32, has been an accountable playmaker for the majority of his career. He hasn’t missed a game since 2009, when he was a member of the Arizona Cardinals. If the diagnosis is, in fact, a high ankle sprain, the Rolle will have a tough time keeping that streak alive.
Now down a defensive back with valuable Super Bowl experience, the winless Bears are even less threatening.
