It’s back to work for me and the Bears. I have to admit, it was a much needed Sunday off after a maddening stretch of games.
Orlando Pace got checked for a concussion today. In case you forgot, the game was last Thursday.
Al Afalava and Zack Bowman returned to practice while Desmond Clark, Garrett Wolfe and Kevin Payne did not.
It was a rough weekend for ex-Bears. Kyle Orton injured his ankle and is questionable for next Sunday while Cedric Benson had to leave in the 2nd quarter with a hip injury. The Benson injury isn’t believed to be too serious, but the upstart Bengals are taking out a little insurance policy.
Speaking of injuries, the Eagles’ Brian Westbrook suffered his second concussion in a week and is likely out against the Bears. The Bears keep catching breaks – too bad we barely been able to capitalize on any of them.
