Running back Matt Forte reportedly has made progress with his ankle injury, but he is likely going to sit Monday night out so he can get back to 100%.
Michael Bush took Forte’s spot in the starting lineup against St. Louis (18 rushes, 55 yards, one td), but he too is reportedly dealing with an injury of his own.
Bush wouldn’t confirm the reported injury in his AC joint in his...
Ok, perhaps I am rushing to judgment being that it is only Week 3 in the 2012 NFL season, but the Chicago Bears being manhandled by a division rival in the manner they were on two Thursday night’s beckons the immediate call for questioning at the helm of their offense.
Jay Cutler’s performance was abysmal and truly there is no one else to blame except the signal caller himself...
According to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune, Bears running back Michael Bush has a shoulder injury. It’s reportedly his AC joint that’s been affected.
McClure says that Bush wouldn’t confirm the injury. We’ll monitor his status leading up to this week’s game.
During his weekly press conference Thursday, Cutler engaged in give-and-take with longtime pro football writer Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune.
Asked by Pompei if it was possible to target WR Brandon Marshall too much, Cutler said, "No."
Asked if Marshall is getting a lot of defensive attention, Cutler responded, "What kind of attention."
Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is apologizing for firing back at former NFL star Warren Sapp with some harsh comments - even though he meant what he said.
He says he's sorry for going public with his feelings and probably should have ''kept it private.''
Instead, he lashed back at Sapp in an online video Monday for calling him a ''retard'...

A win is a win, and they don’t always look good.
Well at least the offensive side of the ball didn’t look to shining during Sundays 23-6 win over the Rams. It wasn’t impressive for the offense, but they got the job done the old fashion way with defense.
The Bears defense completely dominated the Rams, holding them...
Three weeks into the 2012 season and the Bears' offense is amongst the worst in the NFL and on Monday Night will face one of the best defenses. The Dallas Cowboys lead the league in total defense, and are second overall in pass defense and are likely to be more than up to the task of shutting down the Bears.
What will it take for the Bears to find some semblance of offensive...
The Bears offense through three weeks of the 2012 NFL season hasn't impressed anybody.
Jay Cutler has completed 28 of 58 passes for two touchdowns and five interceptions in his past two outings after tossing two touchdowns in team's Week One win over Indy.
Offensive coordinator Mike Tice called a better game against St. Louis this past Sunday compared to the game last Thursday...
Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is known as a fast healer. That became evident Wednesday when the Bears Pro Bowl back returned to the practice field after suffering a high ankle sprain in the week two loss at Green Bay. Forte was originally expected to be out 4-6 weeks. While no decision has been made on his status for [...]
Here are the Week Four Bears power rankings from various sites around the web:
ESPN: #11 (Last week: #12)
Analysis, "Still waiting for Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall to rediscover that old Denver magic."
NFL.com: #9 (Last week: #10)
Analysis, "Jay Cutler is still leaving some plays on the field. So is Brandon Marshall. But at the end of the day, the defense imposed...
Jay Cutler was hardly at his best - both on the field and with one of his teammates - during the Chicago Bears' first prime-time game this season, but he shined in his most recent road contest against the Dallas Cowboys.
The quarterback will try to duplicate the positive performance and avoid another meltdown on national TV when Chicago visits Dallas on Monday night.
This Monday night will see a matchup between my favorite team, the Bears, and one of my least favorite teams, the Cowboys. Forgive me as this is my first piece of writing about the NFL. Any comments are welcome, both positive and negative… both help. So, my hunch is that this is going to be a fantastic game. Let’s see if I can back this up with some stats.
Looking at something...
Defensive tackle Henry Melton is currently tied for second among defensive tackles in sacks (3.0) behind only Panthers DT Dwan Edwards (3.5).
The Bears defense ranks first in the NFL in sacks with 14.0. They finished last season 19th in the league with 33.0 sacks.
Quarterback Jay Cutler has won four of his last five starts on Monday Night Football.
