Bears G Brown to miss remainder of season

Nov 8, 2007 - 10:00 PM LAKE FOREST, Illinois (Ticker) -- The Chicago Bears on Thursday placed starting left guard Ruben Brown on injured reserve, ending his season.

Brown, who started the Bears' first eight games, was placed on IR with a shoulder injury. Chicago had its bye last week.

A nine-time Pro Bowler, Brown had started 45 games since joining the Bears in 2004.

The 6-foot, 300-pound Brown spent his first eight seasons with Buffalo.

Terrence Metcalf likely will move into the starting lineup for Bears (3-5), who visit the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
