Bears Begin Preparations of Redskins: News and Notes

There is a ton of stuff out there so it’s time for some rapid fire news and notes as the Bears start to prepare for the Donovan McNabb and the Redskins:

    • Notable players like Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs, Danieal Manning, Chris Harris and Zack Bowman sat out Wednesday’s practice while rookie safety Major Wright got back into the mix.   Hope none of these is too serious.
    • Barry Turner was promoted from the practice squad.  They signed Ervin Baldwin to the practice squad.
    • Mike Martz recognizes the need for balance.  At least he says so.   Don’t feel bad – I don’t believe him either.
    • Mike Tice is a freaking genius with this quote:

    “There’s a reason sometimes, young linemen look like they don’t know what they’re doing because, usually, they don’t.”

    Fear not, Bears fans.  Your offensive line woes are getting fixed by this guy!

    I have a very exciting contest to announce later on Thursday, so stay tuned.

      I also heard that Major Wright is back at practice today. Wouldn’t mind seeing him back on the field if he is healthy.

        From what I hear, they doubt he’ll suit up this week, but expect him back after the BYE. Could supplant Chris Harris. Better speed, better in coverage, which Lovie loves.
