Chicago Bears News: Preseason Opener in the Books and Much More


Good Morning Bears fans! The first preseason game is in the books, so let’s look at the latest Chicago Bears news.  The Bears had a few  hiccups early on but ultimate they were able to walk away with a 27-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Even with the win there are a few concerns but it is still early, we can be confident that coach John Fox will make the necessary adjustment to clean the mistakes. Let’s take a look at what’s happening at Halas Hall today.

Brandon Marshall won’t stop talking about Jay Cutler. You would think with all that has gone on with Geno Smith and the knockout punch that will cause him to miss 6-10 weeks, Marshall would be focused on his current team. But no, he brings up Cutler every chance he gets. In his most recent comments, Marshall said that he was the only player to hold Cutler accountable last season.

Apparently, this didn’t go over to well with Bears running back Matt Forte. Forte, who usually remains mum on any controversy, refuted Marshall’s statements saying Marshall didn’t hold himself accountable. Clearly, the relationship between Marshall and some of his old teammates has been severed.

However, Cutler remained professional on the matter telling ESPN “All I can say is he’s got a lot of good friends on this team and we wish him the best of luck.” Everyone has their criticisms on what Jay Cutler does on the field but one thing he doesn’t get enough credit for is the way he handles himself in difficult situations such as this. His response was that of class and a true professional.

Alshon Jeffery suffered a strained calf injury in practice is now in a walking boot. However, the injury is not serious he is considered to be day-to-day, so there is no need to panic just yet. As the preseason continues Jeffery will rehab his injury and try to return as soon as possible.
