Chicago Sun Times: Bears Marty Booker struggled pulling his
clothes on in the locker room after the game Sunday, and his worst
fears have been realized by X-rays. A source close to the player
revealed that Booker suffered a cracked rib when he was tackled by
Jacksonville CB Brian Williams and LB Clint Ingram. The injury
happened at the end of a 12-yard reception in the 4th quarter of
the Bears' 23-10 victory. Booker finished with three catches for
28 yards after missing 2 games with a bone bruise in his knee and
going catchless through three games when he tried to play through
the injury. The 3 receptions tied him with Curtis Conway for the
3rd-most in franchise history with 329. He's 27 behind Johnny
Morris in 2nd place. The injury is not expected to end Booker's
season and it will become a matter of being able to play through
the pain. WR Devin Hester missed 1 game earlier this season with
a rib cartilage injury. Booker played a bigger role against the
Jaguars as the struggling passing game came back to life. He saw
considerably more playing time than Brandon Lloyd, who's been
virtually invisible since returning from his knee sprain.
