LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears safety Kyler Gordon will miss at least the next four games after the team placed him on injured reserve because of a hand injury on Thursday.

Gordon left in the second half of Chicago's season-opening loss to the Green Bay Packers. He would be eligible to return against Minnesota on Oct. 15.

A second-round draft pick out of Washington last year, Gordon had three interceptions as a rookie.
