Former Chicago Bears defensive lineman Steve McMichael says he wants to enter the political field after being a star on the football one.
McMichael was a fan favorite as a member of the Super Bowl-winning Bears and he says he plans to run for mayor of Romeoville, Ill. McMichael is co-owner of Mongo McMichael's sports bar in the Chicago suburb.
McMichael moved to the village in April. He says he was prompted to run by his desire to help the district where his 4-year-old daughter will attend school and conversations he's had with customers at his sports bar. It will be his first time running for office.
McMichael discounts his lack of political experience, saying he didn't have any experience at professional football or wrestling and he was successful at both.

It's the same knee he injured on New Year's Day. A...

Ask me another question, I'll tell you Sept. 9," Urlacher said, repeating his stated goal of playing in the 2012 regular-season opener against the Colts. "That's my goal, and that's what...
Paea aims for return:
Defensive tackle Stephen Paea suffered an ankle injury on Saturday and has been out since then.
He was out of his walking boot and told the media in Bourbonnais that he would try to return to practice by next week.
Without Paea in practice, Matt Toeaina earns another chance at being the starter heading into the season.

Lost in all the hoopla surrounding the left tackle battle is the health of Gabe Carimi and his knee. We still don't know how healthy Carimi's knee is and will he be able to handle the grind of a 16 game season.
Early on in camp Carimi's knee didn't even hold up through the rigors of training camp and there are reports that Carimi has at times looked uncomfortable...
