Antrel Rolle: 'There's no timetable for when I'll return'

The loss of Antrel Rolle could prove a significant one for the Bears.

As for how long they'll be without one of their starting safeties, it sounds like we'll just have to wait and see.

"There's no timetable for when I'll return," Rolle told CSN's Pat Boyle on Tuesday night's edition of The Antrel Rolle Show. "Just going to start grinding, day in and day out, and try to make the best of it."

The good news is that the injury isn't more serious. Rolle said that when the play happened, he was concerned that his ankle was facing in the opposite direction. That wasn't the case, and Rolle is confident he'll be back soon.

"Very fortunate, could've been a lot worse," he said. "It kind of happened in slow motion for me. I felt the pressure on my leg. Going down, collapsing to my knee, I knew I couldn't sustain that pressure. So I was able to twist and turn my body a little bit. I took a pretty good pounding, but ... it's just an ankle injury. I'll bounce back in no time.

"I didn't think along those lines, but I did think my ankle was faced the opposite way. I was scared to look down to see what my ankle was looking like. Once I saw it straight, I was like, 'OK, good.'"
