CHICAGO (AP) - Receiver Eddie Royal will miss the Chicago Bears’ final two games because of a toe injury.

Royal will become the 18th Bears player on injured reserve after coach John Fox announced Monday that the nine-year veteran is done for the year.

Sidelined since Nov. 27, Royal has been limited to nine games in each of his two seasons in Chicago after agreeing to a three-year deal in March 2015. He caught 33 passes for 369 yards this year after finishing with 37 receptions for 238 yards and a TD last season.



Royal has 408 catches for 4,357 yards and 28 touchdowns with Denver, San Diego and Chicago.
