The Chicago Bears have placed wide receiver Johnny Knox on the physically-unable-to-perform list, the team announced Sunday. The move means Knox, who is recovering from spinal fusion surgery, will be unable to play until the seventh week of the season. In the other moves, the team put rookie safety Brandon Hardin on the injured reserve list because of a neck injury. Also, the Bears cut linebacker, K.C. Asiodu, quarterback Matt Blanchard, safety Trevor Coston, wide receivers Terriun Crump and Chris Summers and defensive end Derek Walker. They placed linebacker Adrien Cole and offensive guard Nick Pieschel on the waived/injured list. All NFL teams must be down to 76 players by Monday with the Bears facing one player to cut.

Jay Cutler finished the third preseason game against the New York Giants an unspectacular 9 out of 21 for 96 yards and one touchdown. Cutler's first real return to action exposed him for the QB he is, an extremely gifted quarterback physically, who has some of the worst fundamental flaws in the NFL.
Cutler's refusal to get better from a fundamental standpoint is downright...
It was revealed yesterday that Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers, a seven-time Pro Bowler, has plantar fasciitis in his foot, although he’s not planning on missing any time.
Sure it doesn’t have the glitz, glamor or popularity of the NFL, but the CFL does feature some pretty good players capable of pulling off some pretty terrific plays, as evidenced by this mammoth, decleater of a block delivered by Alouettes safety Kyries Hebert on Tiger-Cats receiver Onrea Jones following a Henry Burris pick.
