04:26 PM ET 02.13 | Johnny Knox was released by the Chicago Bears on Tuesday, a little more than a year after suffering a gruesome spinal injury in Week 15 of the 2011 season. Knox hasn't returned to action since the injury, and appears unlikely to ever do so. According to the Chicago Tribune, multiple sources believe that Knox's playing career is over, and that the wide receiver will be forced to retire. Knox, a fifth-round draft selection by the Bears in the 2009 NFL Draft, was a valuable receiver, largely because of the speed he brings to the table. During his sophomore season in 2010, Knox had 51 receptions for 960 yards, averaging 18.8 yards per reception.
