The Chicago Bears finished a closed practice Tuesday as they prepare for their second preseason game against the Seahawks in Seattle on Thursday night. However, there was some potentially grim news following the session. According to multiple reports, rookie center Doug Kramer suffered a lower leg injury.

Bradd Biggs of the Chicago Tribune shed a little more light on Kramer's ailment, reporting the Bears are concerned it may be a Lisfranc injury. If that is the case, it would most likely be a season-ending one, as Biggs noted.

Losing Kramer would be a tough blow for the Bears considering their offensive line has several question marks and needs some sort of stability. Leading up to today's developments, Kramer served as the backup center but was getting considerable reps due to Lucas Patrick's injury.
