Football Betting: Bears’ Henry Melton diagnosed with a concussion

Henry Melton, Chicago Bears defensive tackle, did not return to play in Friday night’s preseason game against the Carolina Panthers after suffering a concussion, leaving many of the player’s football betting fans very concerned over his fitness.
“Henry has a concussion and he’ll be in a NFL concussion protocol situation right now and will be day-to-day,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said.
Pay per head sportsbooks know that according to NFL concussion protocol, a player must pass through four stages before he is cleared to continue full-contact football activities. Football betting fans learned that wide receiver Earl Bennett is working his way through the program after suffering a concussion at Soldier Field last weekend.
On Wednesday, Melton suffered a minor injury during practice, but pay per head sportsbooks found out that the player was still in the starting lineup when the Bears played Carolina.
Football betting fans learned that Melton was replaced by Nate Collins with the first-team unit after Melton suffered the concussion during the first quarter.
In the offseason, the Bears placed the franchise tag on Melton after the player was voted last season to the Pro Bowl. Pay per head sportsbooks saw that in 14 games, Melton had a career-high 33 tackles and six sacks.
Many fans that follow long-snapper Patrick Mannelly and make an NFL bet were worried when they found out that the player suffered a rib injury in the first quarter while covering a punt, and Mannelly was blindsided when he was running down the field as he tried to make a tackle. He will not return to action.

Linebacker James Anderson, who is very well know with pay per head sportsbooks, was listed as the No. 2 long-snapper on the Bears’ depth chart.
In the fourth quarter, fullback Harvey Unga injured his ribs, and the player’s football betting fans hope that he makes a very swift recovery. Trestman also called Unga and Mannelly day-to-day.
Pay per head sportsbooks hope that these players heal as quickly as quickly as possible, and will pay very close attention to their progress.
