Chicago Bears release two-time Pro Bowl CB Tim Jennings

Bears struggle with depth, injuries as preseason nears end

The Chicago Bears hope the team that took the field in Saturday’s lackluster effort against Cincinnati isn’t the same one that hosts defending NFC North champion Green Bay on September 13 at Soldier Field.

John Fox on Bears defense: 'I don’t think we improved'

Fox said he doesn’t anticipate the injury being long-term, but that doesn’t mean much considering he said Kevin White’s injury was day-to-day and he could be lost...
