PLAYERS: Matt Forte
TEAMS: Chicago Bears
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network  has been hearing that running back Matt Forte will get more passes thrown his way in the Bears new offense this season. Random thoughts: Intrigued by how I'm hearing @MattForte22 will be used in Chicago. Should catch a ton more passes. Maybe like in 2008? — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 30, 2013 Forte is one of the most versatile backs in the NFL, it only makes sense to include him in the passing game.  The biggest question is if he can stay healthy.     Need NFL Tickets?

Bears rookie G Kyle Long adapting quickly as standout at training camp

Chicago Bears first round pick guard Kyle Long missed the entire offseason due to NFL rules over graduation dates; however, you’d never know the difference. The 6’6, 313 pound long has shown brute strength in splitting reps with veteran James Brown. Long has worked with Jay Glazer of Fox Sports on mixed martial arts fighting techniques in the offseason and he says it has...

D.J. Williams first notable injury at Chicago Bears Camp

The first injury of significance in the inaugural Camp Trestman is….D.J. Williams. The Chicago Bears offseason acquisition at linebacker was taking reps with the first team and is projected to be a starter in the Bears revamped corps. He’s listed as week by week, so this is significant! “That’s an opportunity for our young guys to get reps and see what people can do,” new...

No Lovie, Urlacher on 2013 Bears defense

Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman admit change can be difficult, even when it's necessary. Like all the Bears in coach Marc Trestman's first camp, Briggs and Tillman are finding they have to adapt. The two most senior Bears on defense in terms of time spent in Chicago are trying to help convert the Bears' cover-2 system that served them so well under former coach Lovie...

Jay Cutler is the antithesis of Johnny Manziel

The public face of Jay Cutler is so uninteresting and boring that we’ve created a way to make him interesting and compelling. Jay Cutler is certainly not the Punky QB Jim McMahon; or even Captain Neckbeard Kyle Orton for that matter. At least personality wise. He never says anything that makes good copy, and pretty much all interviews of him are a huge waste of time. I didn’t...

Urlacher lands TV broadcast gig

Recently retired Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher didn't wait long to land a new gig, this time with the upcoming Fox Sports 1.

The rapid development of Isaiah Frey

Outside of Charles Tillman, no Chicago Bears cornerback has been more impressive in training camp than second-year player Isaiah Frey, who could challenge for the starting nickelback gig.

Chicago Bears DE Corey Wootton is indeed becoming the Coreysaurus

Chicago Bears defensive end Corey Wootton is starting to grow into the nickname he’s always had. “They call me Coreysaurus, cuz of my height and long neck,” Wootton told me in an exclusive during his days at Northwestern. In 2012, the 6’8″ and lanky Corey Wootton started to play like that ferocious dinosaur nickname on the professional level. In Week 9 against the Tennessee...

Bears D. J. Williams hobbled

Injuries continued to dominate much of the Chicago Bears training camp news on Wednesday. The most serious injury appeared to be a calf strain sustained by new Bears middle linebacker D.J. Williams. Williams, signed as a free agent after beginning his career at Denver, was carted off the field early in Wednesday’s practice. The Bears listed him as week-to-week, and it [...]

Injuries show up at Bears camp

Heading into Monday’s practice, the Chicago Bears had considered themselves fortunate to stay away from the injury bug biting several NFL teams. Things changed quickly though, when veteran defensive lineman Turk McBride, bidding to win a backup job, went down with an Achilles tendon injury that will sideline him for the season during the morning practice. Later, left offensive...

Read-option could be used by the Chicago Bears

It's strange to think that the Bears may actually be doing something non-traditional, but that's exactly what Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune is reporting might happen in the Windy City. Biggs says the Bears have been using play-action fakes from the shotgun formation that doubles as the trigger play for a read-option run. The play action fake gets the quarterback out...
