Bears running back Michael Bush told the Chicago Tribune that he played most of the 2012 season with a fractured bone in his shoulder before he went on season ending injured reserve with a rib injury. “How did I play through it?” Bush asked rhetorically after saying he suffered it in a Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers. “The same way I was going to play through the rib injury until I realized (the rib injury) was worse than what it was. That’s just me. Once I broke my leg (in college) … if it ain’t my leg and it ain’t my feet and I can still walk around and run, I’m going to play.” Even though Bush never underwent surgery for either injury, he’s now 100 percent healthy for the upcoming season. Bush should get a healthy amount of carries in 2013, since Matt Forte has had a hard time staying healthy over the past couple of years. [NFL.com/Photo from ChicagoBears.com] Need NFL Tickets?

In Marc Trestman’s offense, can Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte be a legitimate NFC Offensive Player of the Year candidate this season?
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is in the final year of his contract extension with the franchise. To this point Cutler has failed to live up to the expectations heaped upon him after the trade. Cutler has been at best an average NFL quarterback who has played well at times, but who has ultimately struggled to produce against key division opponents.
