After undergoing surgery to stabilize a vertebra in his back as a result of a violent collision in a December regular season game against the Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears WR Johnny Knox is hoping to return to the field in 2012.

Despite a report from the Chicago Tribune which claimed Knox would not play in 2012, the receiver’s agent Tweeted on Monday, “We are six months...

Forte took a one-year deal last season, knowing an injury could seriously hurt his pay in the offseason. When it happened, the Bears would have been foolish not to franchise him—he was perfect for his role in that offense, but they did not know if he would be the same back. But the...
