Unproven backups competing behind Forte

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- Churning up a toboggan hill as part of his offseason conditioning program in a suburban Chicago park, Matt Forte apparently stopped long enough only to urge on and, yes, ride his workout partner. "He killed me," said Michael Ford, one of several Bears running backs vying for the No. 2 spot behind Forte this training camp. "His work ethic is amazing and the things he does in the offseason to get himself ready are brutal. ... But the tradition set before him and with him, we have to hold to the same standards.

Bears Camp Report: Day 4

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Chicago Bears training camp: Expectations are sky high for a Bears offense that ranked No. 2 in the NFL last year in points scored (27.8 per game) and No. 5 in passing yards (267.6 per game), but the opening four days of practice have produced a mixed bag of results from a unit that is expected to return all 11 starters.

Cubs trade Barney to Dodgers

The Cubs today managed to get something for second baseman Darwin Barney, whom they designated for assignment on July 22. They traded Barney and a cash consideration to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a player to be named later. Barney, who won the Gold Glove in 2012, had a hitting line of .230/.265/.328 with the Cubs. The emergence of Arismendy Alcantara and the activation of Emilio Bonifacio off the disabled list led to Barney being squeezed out, as did Barney's poor offense. read more
