Michael Thomas misses another practice

Three wide receivers were missing from Saints practice on Wednesday. Only two of those wideouts were on the injury report.

Michael Thomas and Marquez Callaway are on the active roster and they were the [more]

Allen Robinson in concussion protocol

The Bears need to get more from their offense, but any attempt to improve this week may have to take place without wide receiver Allen Robinson. Robinson left Monday night’s loss to the Rams to be evaluated for a head injury and head coach Matt Nagy updated his condition on Wednesday. Nagy confirmed that Robinson [more]

Post-game stat change costs daily fantasy contestant $1 million prize

Rob Huntze won $1 million in a DraftKings daily fantasy contest. Until he didn’t. As explained by David Purdum of ESPN.com, a change to the official statistics from Monday night’s Bears-Rams game robbed Huntze of the jackpot he believed he’d won. After the game ended, DraftKings’ official tabulation showed that Huntze had scored the most [more]

Dolphins extend Adam Shaheen

In July, the Dolphins sent a conditional seventh-round draft pick to the Bears for tight end Adam Shaheen. He clearly has exceeded expectations in Miami.

Matt Nagy: I’m not opposed to giving up playcalling, but right now I don’t need to

The Bears’ offense has been even worse with Nick Foles starting at quarterback than it was with Mitchell Trubisky, and that has some folks pointing the finger at the head coach, who also happens to be the offensive playcaller. So should Matt Nagy give up playcalling duties? He said today that he’s willing to do [more]

Bears’ offense has been worse since Nick Foles became the starter

In Week Three, the Bears benched a struggling Mitchell Trubisky for Nick Foles, and they promptly came back from a 26-10 deficit to beat the Falcons 30-26. It looked like Foles was the right man to lead their offense. In four games since then, it has looked a lot different. The Bears’ offense has actually [more]

Matt Nagy: It’s unacceptable for our offense to be outscored by our defense

The Bears lost in ugly fashion last night, scoring only 10 point against the Rams. Making matters worse was that the offense scored only three of those points. “[W]e’ve got to get stuff figured out,” Bears coach Matt Nagy told reporters after the game regarding the offense. “It’s not good enough and to be outscored [more]

Sean McVay gives game ball to “phenomenal” Johnny Hekker

It’s not often that a punter could legitimately be described as a game’s most valuable player, but Johnny Hekker has a case for it after his Rams beat the Bears on Monday night. Hekker averaged 44.2 yards per punt and, incredibly, landed all five of his punts inside the Bears’ 10-yard line, with none of [more]

Nick Foles says Brian Griese’s broadcast comments came from a miscommunication

As the offense of the Chicago Bears sputtered against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night, ESPN broadcaster Brian Griese relayed a conversation from quarterback Nick Foles during their production meetings over the weekend that seemed to indicate a disconnect between Foles and head coach Matt Nagy. During the fourth quarter, Griese spoke of the [more]

The Los Angeles Rams intercepted Nick Foles twice and held the offense of the Chicago Bears to just a lone field goal as they cruised to a 24-10 victory on Monday night.

Rams lead Bears 10-3 at halftime

So far, Monday Night Football has followed the script: The first half was a defensive battle. Here’s hoping you bet the under. The Rams lead the Bears 10-3 at halftime. The Bears have 126 yards and the Rams 223. The teams combined for six punts. Josh Reynolds caught a 4-yard pass from Jared Goff with [more]

Josh Reynolds gives Rams 7-0 lead on 4-yard touchdown

The Rams used a bit of trickery to score the first touchdown Monday. They broke the huddle with five seconds left on the play clock, quickly set and snapped the ball. Bears cornerback Buster Skrine was slow getting over to Josh Reynolds, and that’s all the separation the Rams receiver needed. Reynolds made a easy [more]

Tyler Higbee is inactive for Monday Night Football

Tight end Tyler Higbee was the only Rams player with a designation for Monday Night Football. The Rams listed him as questionable with a hand injury. Higbee won’t play.
