Media reports suggest that Bears quarterback Kyle Orton will miss one month with a high ankle sprain.
Officially, the team is awaiting the results of a Monday MRI before making any comments about Orton’s condition.
If Orton misses a month, Rex Grossman will get the nod for upcoming games against the Titans, Packers, Rams and Vikings.
The only other quarterback on the roster is rookie Caleb Hanie.
The 5-3 Bears lead the NFC North by one game over the 4-4 Packers and 4-4 Vikings.
