Chicago Bears cornerback Kyler Gordon had surgery to repair his broken hand Thursday. He’ll miss at least the next four games while on injured reserve, and the Bears are hopeful he’ll be back in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Gordon enjoyed a strong spring and summer and was a trendy pick to be the Bears’ breakout player in 2023. A 2022 second-round pick from Washington, Gordon’s incredible athleticism earned him the nickname Spider-Man this offseason.
Kyler Gordon started 14 games for the Bears in 2022. He finished his rookie season with 71 tackles and three interceptions. He finished Week 1’s loss to the Packers with one tackle and a pass defended.
Gordon will be replaced in the lineup by either Greg Stroman or Josh Blackwell.
