Chicago Bears Rumors & News

The Bears added Shea McClellin to the injury report this week, and released the full injury report for tomorrow night's game. The injury report this week added a surprise, as Shea McClellin hit the list with a hand injury. He didn't practice on Friday or Saturday, and is already listed as out. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are both still listed as questionable with their ankle and hamstrings, respectively, though we saw what Marshall did last week. Josh Morgan may be closer to back with his groin injury and is listed as probable. For the full injury...

The Jets are off this Sunday. That means we get a full slate of stress-free but less interesting football. (Yes, I just said a Super Bowl rematch is less interesting than the Jets.) This week CBS will show a doubleheader while FOX will broadcast a single game to each region of the country. If you live...

After pulling out a thrilling fourth-quarter win against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night, the Chicago Bears return to primetime as they take on the Jets on Monday Night Football. So last week, the season was over and the Bears shouldn't have shown up to play the Niners because the season was over and they shouldn't bother showing up. This week, they're going to the Super Bowl. How things change. The Bears started Sunday night sputtering out of the gate, got points at the half, held the Niners to three points in the second half and in less than fifty game-seconds went from thirteen...
49ers pass offense versus Cardinals pass defense: The 49ers failed to take advantage of mismatches last week, particularly after the Bears lost starting free safety Chris Conte and starting cornerback Charles Tillman. Soon after that happened during the first drive of the third quarter, the 49ers got to the Bears’ 6-yard line, ran three plays and lost a yard. They eventually settled for a field goal. Also against the Bears, the 49ers flexed fullback Bruce Miller out wide and put wide receiver Anquan Boldin in the slot next to him. The Bears countered by putting strong safety Ryan Mundy on...

Bears receiver Josh Bellamy’s fondness for Japanese food means he frequently stops at a north suburban Benihana. Sometimes he dines with teammates, and sometimes he’s alone. But he has a seat he calls his own. ‘‘I sit in the same seat all the time,’’ Bellamy said. But a visit last week felt different. Across from him at his usual table was a woman he guessed to be in her 50s with four children. ‘‘I could tell that the kids play sports,’’ Bellamy...

Linebacker Shea McClellin will miss the game Monday against the New York Jets after breaking his right hand in practice this week. McClellin had not talked to staffers about surgery or when he’d return but was optimistic. “It’s something we’ll fix and cast up and go get after it,” McClellin said Saturday at Halas Hall. Jon Bostic should start for him. “We’re disappointed for him because he has been getting better,” coach Marc Trestman said. Marshall,...
Bears defensive end Jared Allen attended Bible study with Adrian Peterson during their six seasons as teammates with the Minnesota Vikings. He was reticent to judge his former teammate in light of Peterson’s indictment Sept. 12 on charges of child abuse, though he did support and defend Peterson’s character. ‘‘My focus is on the Chicago Bears, honestly, and what I’ve got to do in my life,’’ Allen said. ‘‘I’ve said it all along: I’ve got my...

Dee Milliner's latest injury likely will keep him sidelined Monday night against the Chicago Bears.
From a 40-minute news conference with receiver Brandon Marshall to Devin Hester saying he was unhappy his last few years in Chicago, there has been a lot to discuss this week. But not too much about the New York Jets, who, if you didn’t know, will host the Bears on “Monday Night Football.” Here are this week’s Bears “Question Marks.” 1. Will Brandon Marshall’s very personal news conference affect the outcome Monday? That’s doubtful. The Bears have...
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen said that while he doesn't know all the details concerning former Minnesota Vikings teammate Adrian Peterson's legal situation, he believes "good people make mistakes." Allen played alongside Peterson for six seasons in Minnesota before joining the Bears. "My focus is on the Chicago Bears, honestly, and what I've got to do with my life," Allen said when asked about Peterson. "I've said it all along: I have my beliefs and my opinions, and that's what they are, and I live my life a certain way.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears announced Saturday they'd face the New York Jets on Monday night without center Roberto Garza (ankle), left guard Matt Slauson (ankle), cornerback Sherrick McManis (quadriceps), defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion) and linebacker Shea McClellin (hand). The club held out all five players for Saturday's workout. Receivers Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) participated in a limited capacity, and are officially listed as questionable.

Before we move on to Week 3, one more thing about Week 2. I question Greg Roman’s play call on the 49ers’ final play against the Bears. The 49ers were at the Bears’ 17 yard line with 1:17 left and it was fourth-and-9. Roman called a play where Michael Crabtree ran a skinny post route […]
Not much was going right for Jay Cutler against the 49ers last week until he got into the two-minute drill. The Bears were trailing 17-0 and in need of a touchdown to go into halftime with a fighting chance. At the time, Cutler was 7-for-15 for 28 yards — a paltry 1.9 yards per pass attempt. But the desperation of the two-minute drill did the trick. Even with five stoppages — for the two-minute warning and four penalties — Cutler drove the Bears for a...

RICK MORRISSEY: Too late. Too late for all the women who have been abused and sexually assaulted by NFL players. Too late for all the abusive players who could have been helped before they started throwing punches.

Guard Matt Slauson (high ankle sprain) is trying to be patient. But the matchup against the New York Jets, his former team, won’t calm those emotions. “Every game means a lot,” Slauson said after sitting out practice Friday. “Obviously, I would have loved to have played against all of my old teammates. “But you know what? I have to be smart. Hats off to this organization for trying to take care of me.” Slauson has missed every practice since injuring his...
