Bears’ Adam Shaheen carted off the field with an ankle injury

Early in the first quarter, Chicago Bears’ tight end Adam Shaheen caught a pass from Mitchell Trubisky for a five yard gain, but he seemed to have injured his ankle on the tackle. He scooted along the turf for a moment before limping to his sideline. A few moments later Chicago’s medical personal brought the cart over to take him to the locker room. His return to the game has officially been ruled doubtful. It appeared as though his toe got caught in the ground and his ankle twisted, but as soon as we have more concrete info we’ll pas sit along.

That’s a good thing. I think there are just pros out here that are just trying to work and get better.” And on a few other measures, it was also a great day for the more than...

The Real Rules of Preseason Football

Just because the games don’t count doesn’t mean that they don’t matter. There seems to be some confusion among 32 fan bases about how to react to preseason football games. Bears and Ravens fans, of course, have a one-game lead on the rest of the sports world because we got to ‘enjoy’ the Hall of Fame game, as well. Therefore, as a public service, I would like to offer the following six real rules for preseason football. 1. If a favored player plays well, he’s going to the Pro Bowl.

Bears vs Bengals game ball goes to James Daniels

The Chicago Bears lost another close preseason game, this time to the Cincinnati Bengals, but some young Bears continued to flash. This week’s game ball goes to James Daniels. When the Chicago Bears drafted James Daniels out of Iowa, many scouts assumed he would be an immediate plug and play starter at his natural center position, allowing the Bears to shift Cody Whitehair to left guard. But the Bears wanted the 20-year old to learn the ropes backing up at left guard at first, and that’s where he spent the majority of his offseason. This last week with the injury to back up center...

Bengals LB Vincent Rey injured vs. Bears

The Bengals lose a key linebacker early in their first preseason game. The Bengals couldn’t make it through one quarter without a key player being injured against the Bears. Linebacker Vincent Rey suffered what appeared to be a leg injury during a punt return midway through the first quarter. He was down after the play and had to be helped off the field to be examined on the sideline. The team quickly announced Rey suffered an ankle injury and was doubtful to return. That does not necessarily mean it’s a bad injury as much as the team won’t risk further injury in what’s really a...

Chicago Bears under-25 talent ranked 10th in the NFL

The Chicago Bears are trending the right way in this annual list from ESPN, but now we’d like to see that translate to some wins. General manager Ryan Pace has been on a mission to turn the Chicago Bears’ franchise around, and 2018 should finally be time for us to see a marked improvement from the young players he has assembled. His drafts haven’t been perfect, and there have been a few players snake-bitten by injury, but his grand-plan should start to bear fruit this season. The year before Pace took over there were eighteen players on the roster that were 30-years old or older....
