Chris Conte out to silence critics

Safety Chris Conte just wants to read and react, cover and tackle. His plan is to zone in on plays and zone out last season’s woes. “It was anything you can imagine,” Conte said of the threats he received on social media. “It’s unfortunate that my family and everybody had to see that stuff. It’s just the way the world is.” Conte’s first chance to shut that world up comes Friday against the Seattle Seahawks. It’ll be Conte’s first game since he...

Conte expected back for third preseason game - Chris Conte (DB) Chicago Bears

Bears FS Chris Conte (shoulder) is expected to participate in the Bears' third preseason game against Seattle next Friday.

Bears hopeful for Conte return in Seattle

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman praised the preseason work of veteran Ryan Mundy on Friday, but refused to anoint any starters at safety in the aftermath of the team’s 20-19 victory over Jacksonville. That’s likely because former starting free safety Chris Conte has yet to participate in live action since being elevated off the PUP list, although that could change next Friday when the Bears travel to Seattle to play in the all-important third preseason game versus the defending Super Bowl champions.

Coach Marc Trestman said earlier this week that he hoped Conte would be able to play but that the final decision belonged to the training staff.

Marc Trestman hopes Chris Conte can play Thursday

BOURBONNAIS — One day after receiving a rousing cheer when he intercepted a pass in practice, safety Chris Conte slipped on the wet grass on a pass play that resulted in a touchdown Tuesday. Fans grumbled loudly enough for one veteran to suggest, a bit too loudly, that the hecklers be quiet. After a forgettable 2013, followed by surgery on his right shoulder and a return to the active roster Sunday, Conte is being measured by the play. Coach Marc Trestman hopes...
