Jordan Mills played left guard Monday for the first time since the Bears announced plans to shift him there in Matt Slauson’s place. The second-year player, who started all 16 games at right tackle last season and — with the exception of missing one game with foot soreness — this year, said it was different.
The Bears moved Monday to fill the roster void left by Lamarr Houston, promoting David Bass from the practice squad and signing tackle Jason Weaver to take his place. Bass played 13 games for the Bears and started one last season, recording 20 1/2 tackles and returning an interception for a touchdown. At 6-5, 305
With the NFL’s trade deadline looming Tuesday, Bears general Phil Emery said the team has been approached with interesting offers, but nothing that would make the team better in the short term. And, yes, the Bears are still concerned with improving this year’s team — not next. “We’ve had two or three interesting things that
Lamarr Houston’s embarrassing injury had serious implications: he won’t play for the Bears again this season. The defensive end suffered a torn right ACL while celebrating a sack with the Bears down 25 points. Rehab is six-to-eight, general manager Phil Emery said.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — When the Bears return from their bye week, they’ll have to decide how they want their season, now 3-5 after a 51-23 drubbing by the Patriots on Sunday, to end. “We’re gonna take some time off, obviously, with the bye week, come in tomorrow and watch some film,” he said. “And collectively,
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Bears linebacker Darryl Sharpton left Sunday’s game against the Patriots and will not return because of a hamstring injury. Sharpton was the team’s starting linebacker in a nickel package. The team started Christian Jones at the weak side, in place of Lance Briggs. Both Briggs and linebacker Jon Bostic were inactive Sunday.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The Bears will play a new right tackle Sunday, and will again deal with the loss of two of their main linebackers. Jordan Mills, whose sore left foot has plagued him since offseason surgery, has been ruled inactive. He will be replaced at right tackle by Michael Ola, who has already started games
The Bears will likely be without two starters for their most important game of the season — right tackle Jordan Mills was declared questionable and linebacker Lance Briggs was called doubtful Friday. Briggs, who was a ribs injury, has been playing on the Bears’ “show team,” mimicking the opponent. “As the trainers say, he’s starting
Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was frustrated Sunday, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said Thursday, but didn’t attack any one player verbally after the Bears’ 27-14 loss to the Dolphins. And, the quarterback said, he certainly wasn’t gunning for Cutler. “No. He didn’t come near me. He didn’t say my name,” he said. “I don’t think
