Cain is hitting just .248, while Grisham has been a run-producer since being called up from the minor leagues.
The first portion of training camp is now officially in the books.
CHICAGO – The issue with trying to preview these Bears exhibition games for our readers is the degree to which Matt Nagy seems to revel in being as mysterious as possible as to who’s going to play.
As DeShone Kizer he enters his third NFL season, his circumstances so far have sorely lacked consistency — and so has his play.
It feels like eons ago, but it's only been a year since then-rookie Bears head coach Matt Nagy rather unconventionally decided to play most of his starters roughly 20 combined snaps — if at all — in last year's exhibition season.
It is possible — likely, even — that either Eddy Pineiro or Elliott Fry will be the Bears placekicker on opening night against the Packers, and it's equally reasonable to project that one or both will go on to very successful NFL careers.
The Bears simulated a full mock game at Halas Hall Wednesday night, pitting the starters vs. the reserves and bringing in everything from portable lights to a live DJ to, yes, the Bear raid siren.
Minnesota loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth, but Matt Albers got C.J. Cron to fly out and earned his fourth save.
While Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst and coach Matt LaFleur have conferred and decided that the starters will play, in LaFleur’s words, “a quarter or so,” that still leaves ample opportunity for the guys fighting for roster spots to show what they can do against the Ravens.
Arguably the most impressive play in the Packers’ 28-26 victory over the Texans last week came from Darrius Shepherd (above), who reeled in a 14-yard touchdown pass from No. 2 quarterback DeShone Kizer with an acrobatic, body-contorting catch after Kizer’s throw sailed high. He not only made the grab, but he absorbed a hard hit by Houston cornerback Johnson Bademosi in the head and left shoulder and held on.
Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the offensive and defensive starters are slated to play “a quarter or so” Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens, head coach Matt LaFleur said.
Matt LaFleur likes to use “21” personnel — two running backs, one tight end, two receivers — and change personnel groupings extensively, so not having a fullback is problematic.
Marwin Gonzalez sent the reliever's first pitch over the wall for a three-run blast.
Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards finished off his visit to New Orleans Saints training camp practice Monday by making a cameo appearance in the Quarterback Challenge, trying to throw footballs through open windows.
Before that, he tossed a couple of touchdowns.
The truth about the Bears offensive line last year is that it was OK, but certainly not special.Yes,…
LAKE FOREST — Before the Bears hit the Halas Hall practice fields for the first time in training camp Tuesday, Matt Nagy and Mitch Trubisky met in the head coach's office, where both men shared their impressions of the offense's performance over the …
After Bears veteran CB Prince Amukamara and second-year WR Javon Wims engaged in the first real fight of training camp Tuesday — the first day back at Halas Hall following two weeks in Bourbonnais — Matt Nagy joked that it was the media's fault for j…
LAKE FOREST — In a surprise move, the Bears waived undrafted rookie free agent wide receiver Emanuel Hall Tuesday morning .
Opposing batters know the fastball is coming from Josh Hader so they've been sitting back and waiting for it.
Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine calls the third-year defensive lineman the "most improved" player from a year ago.
Milwaukee wraps up the season with a weeklong trip to St. Louis and San Francisco, finishing against the Giants on Sunday, Sept. 27.
The humble Thompson, who battled health issues brought on by an autonomic disorder late in his tenure as general manager, likely will never get the plaudits he deserves for the talented rosters he assembled during his 13 years in charge of the football operation. He can’t take credit for resurrecting the woebegone franchise, as his mentor Ron Wolf did, but he certainly righted the operation after head coach Mike Sherman struggled with the dual role of coach/GM in the early 2000s.
When the Packers dedicated their redeveloped Lambeau Field in 2003, they placed enormous statues of the two most important men in the franchise’s history out front of their glistening atrium — Curly Lambeau, who co-founded the team and was one of its greatest coaches and players, and Vince Lombardi, who coached his 1960s teams to the club’s greatest on-field era.
When the Packers celebrated the 100th anniversary of their founding on Aug. 11, Calhoun’s place in franchise history was discussed frequently. Calhoun, of course, co-founded the Packers that day in 1919, along with Earl “Curly” Lambeau. At the time, Calhoun was the Green Bay Press-Gazette’s city editor, and while Lambeau was elected captain, Calhoun was named manager.
While Wolf made the moves that restored the Packers to prominence after Harlan hired him as general manager in November 1991 — firing coach Lindy Infante and replacing him with Mike Holmgren; trading a 1992 first-round draft pick for quarterback Brett Favre; signing transformative free-agent defensive end Reggie White in 1993 — what’s even more remarkable is that the Packers had a chance to hire Wolf four years earlier.
We thought the Dallas Cowboys’ looming contract extension puzzle was tricky before Monday’s report from Jane Slater of NFL Media that QB Dak Prescott turned down an offer including $30 million annually as he seeks to be the NFL’s first $40 million-pe…
In his first NFL training camp, Roquan Smith dazzled as often as any Bears player not named Khalil Mack. Matt Nagy might have held only one live tackling drill in Bourbonnais, but Smith was constantly around the football and looked like a unique, dea…
What used to be an annual tradition among NFL teams is nearing extinction. By my count, only 10 of the NFL’s 32 teams left their year-round facilities this summer to begin training camp.
Javon Wims led the NFL in preseason receiving yardage last year as a seventh-round rookie. He’s unlikely to do so again in his second summer in the NFL. Why? His sophomore strides have been too immense.
“I really just want to live up to what’s within myself and be better than what I have been,” said Moore, who caught just two passes in his rookie season last year.
Bolton has gotten work with the No. 1 base defense the past two days after starter Burks sustained a chest injury during Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Texans.
