Stories about the Chicago Bears
With a third of the NFL season now in the rear-view mirror and the trade deadline just two weeks away, it’s time to take a breath, make an honest evaluation of who these Chicago Bears are, and what should and must come next, Hub Arkush writes.
Several Bears starters missed practice Wednesday due to injuries. Bears coach Matt Nagy said he doesn't anticipate any change in status for Tarik Cohen, who is eligible to return off the PUP list this week.
The Bears have worked to make their offense easier for rookie quarterback Justin Fields. "Every football player plays better when it’s simple," Fields said.
These are the stats that made this week unique for the Chicago Bears. Running back Khalil Herbert is off to a great start, while the sacks are piling up for quarterback Justin Fields.
There was the first quarter the Bears dominated, and then there were the final three quarters in which they were both outplayed and outcoached, Hub Arkush writes.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson and quarterback Justin Fields continue to work on their chemistry. Robinson said Tuesday that he is seeing improvement from Fields each week.
It should end up being worth it, but there is a price to pay for the Bears to start Justin Fields so early in his career, Hub Arkush writes
Khalil Herbert was forced into a starting role for the Bears on Sunday. Though the team lost, Herbert didn't disappoint as the star back. He totaled 112 all-purpose yards and a touchdown.
Sunday's loss loss was the kind you bargain for when your coaches are playing catch up all day and you put a young quarterback out there against one of the best to ever play the position. The Bears must do better, Hub Arkush writes.
Green Bay receiver Davante Adams made only four catches in Sunday's win over the Bears, but Adams made the most of each one. When the Packers needed a big play, they looked to Adams.
