Why Roquan Smith Means So Much To Chicago’s Defense

He missed last week due to a personal issue, but will play against the Raiders in London

After unexpectedly missing last week’s game due to a personal issue, Chicago Bears linebacker Roquan Smith will reportedly play in London against the Oakland Raiders this week. 

Chicago’s defense was dominant without him against the Minnesota Vikings and stifled star running back Dalvin Cook, but the Bears run defense is even more dominant with Smith on the field. 

That’s bad news for Oakland rookie Josh Jacobs
