The Bears placed Briggs on the reserve/injured list Friday because of a groin injury.

Briggs has 63 tackles, including 2 1/2 tackles, and an interception, a forced fumble, two pass breakups and a quarterback pressure this season. The seven-time Pro Bowl player is in his 12th season in the NFL, all with the Bears.

Briggs is inactive Thursday in Detroit.

Briggs has been sidelined with a groin injury.

Briggs is out Sunday against New England for the third straight game with a rib injury.

The seven-time Pro Bowler had been listed as doubtful, so this comes as no surprise.

When Briggs asked coach Marc Trestman for a personal day this week, he left out a detail - it was to attend the grand opening of his barbecue restaurant. He didn't mention it afterward, either.

Briggs raised a few more eyebrows with that revelation while being grilled by reporters on Wednesday. With the season opening this week he found himself at the center of attention for missing practice to be at the opening of his barbecue restaurant near his hometown of Sacramento, California.
