Found December 06, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
While wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Devin Hester and offensive linemen Chris Spencer and Gabe Carimi were limited at practice Wednesday, all are expected to suit up this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings. Jeffery was able to return from injury after missing extensive time at the start of the season, but he once again went down recently due to knee issues. The wide receiver underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late November and has missed the team’s last two games. Hester was also sidelined last weekend after suffering a concussion Week 12 during the Bears last matchup with the Vikings. Running back Michael Bush was held out of practice due to a rib injury, but like Jeffery and Hester he is expected to play against the Vikings this weekend. Defensive tackle Stephen Paea did not practice due to a foot injury, while wide receiver Brandon Marshall was given a day off by coach Lovie Smith.

The 5 Best Comments Ever Posted on the “Jay Cutler Dominates” Column

Last NFL season I began writing my “Jay Cutler Dominates” column. Of all my three years on MSF it’s been the column I’ve most enjoyed writing. I like making people laugh, and one of my favorite means of doing that is through satire. Satire is a lot of fun because, if done right, you can get people to not even realize they’re being duped. I love that. When I was writing...

Urlacher’s season (and career in Chicago) may be coming to an end

He's the latest in the long tradition of Chicago Bears middle linebackers.   It started with Dick Butkus in the 60's and 70's. Mike Singletary continued it in the 80's and early 90's. And since the beginning of the new milennium, it's been Brian Urlacher.   But with an injury to his hamstring, he could [...]
