Chicago Bears receiver Johnny Knox will miss the rest of the season after undergoing back surgery.
Coach Lovie Smith confirmed that Knox would not play again this year. He was taken from the field on a cart early in Sunday’s blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Smith says the surgery to stabilize a vertebra in his lower to mid back started this morning and was not finished as of midday.
The injury is not considered career-threatening.
