    NFL teams use an automated camera that delivers images to a printer on the sideline, creating that familiar sight of a quarterback staring at a sheet of paper to figure out what went wrong on an interception. Tablets will be allowed for the first time starting with the Hall of Fame game, though they won’t exactly be running the most cutting-edge apps. The devices will replicate the old system of transmitting still photos to the field — but faster, clearer and in color. No surfing the Web. No selfies or tweets. And more important from a football standpoint: no watching replays of the last snap.

    The Bears continue to shuffle bodies in and out of the safety positions.

  • Strahan expects emotions to flow at HOF induction Aug 1, 2014 6:23 PM
    Michael Strahan is pleased to know he is scheduled to go last during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. That means the former New York Giants star pass-rusher won’t be the first to break down in tears once the 2014 seven-member class is inducted Saturday.

  • NFL's shameful Ray Rice charade continues Aug 1, 2014 6:35 AM

  • Among trade deadline days, MLB is king Jul 31, 2014 11:51 PM
    What a week it’s been for baseball, huh?

Better soak it in though, because football is right around the corner.

    Entering his 12th season with the Bears, seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs is looking to bounce back from the disappointment of 2013, when the defense struggled mightily, partly because he missed seven games with a shoulder injury. “This is Year 12. I’ve given my blood, sweat and tears, and my heart to this city playing for this team," Briggs said. "When it’s all said and done, I’ll retire a Bear.”

  • Mike North video: Why couldn’t Tebow be a backup QB for Bears? Jul 31, 2014 9:42 AM

McCray replaced rookie Brock Vereen, who teamed with 14th-year veteran Adrian Wilson on the second team, but coach Marc Trestman said it was too early to read much into the day's moves.

    Bears defensive tackle Nate Collins has made a rapid recovery from last year's torn ACL in his left knee, and he has displayed some dominant pass-rush moves in training camp practices, but he faces tough competition for a roster spot on a defensive line that has been upgraded. “It's nothing new to me, this situation that I'm in,” Collins said.
