According to teammate Matt Forte, Chicago Bears right tackle Jordan Mills is having surgery today to repair a fifth metatarsal injury in his foot.

Chicago Bears rookie right tackle Jordan Mills started every game this year but was knocked out of the season finale with a foot injury. GM Phil Emery said yesterday it was an injury to Mills’ fifth metatarsal – the bone connecting the second toe (or the piggy that stayed home) to the foot.

When asked yesterday if any players would be having surgery this offseason, Emery said:

“None for certain. Like any team and any NFL team that I’ve been involved with, you’re having guys that are being evaluated. I would say the most recent injury, Jordan Mills, we just have to decide where that’s going to go. He had a foot injury.”

Emery obviously wasn’t aware that Mills was having surgery today, as tweeted by teammate Matt Forte this morning.

Forte’s tweet:

“Y'all pray for my boy [Jordan Mills] getting surgery today. Minor setback for a major comeback. God Bless.”

Emery said it was still uncertain whether or not Mills will miss any of the team’s offseason programs.

“I don’t know that answer right now,” said Emery. “All the players were given offseason physicals. I know he still has to have some further evaluation and that’s just where we’re at.”
