Bears WR White facing third season-ending injury

That's another check. But Sunday was all about turning the page from 28-3 to 1-0, another check mark.

Asked if White will need surgery, Fox said: "I'm not 100 percent sure of the that".

So, yeah, the bar got set just a little high a year ago.

Atlanta wide receiver Julio Jones caught his 500 National Football League pass on Sunday during the Falcons' game against the Chicago Bears. The quick closing speed prevented any yards after the catch and stopped the drive dead.

Cohen after the game praised his teammates when asked about his performance. Absolutely", Ryan said. "Are we gonna try to work on that?

"Mike (Glennon) did a tremendous job getting to the check-down and getting me the ball".

He found Bellamy again for 14 yards on fourth-and-3 from the Atlanta 42.

"To be able to play with that type of back is like playing in Cleveland with Isaiah Thomas and LeBron right now", he said.

The biggest question surrounding the Bears is whether - or when - rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky will get his chance, but for the time being, Chicago will go with Mike Glennon under center.

The first Falcons touchdown of the 2017 regular season came on a stretch-run from running back Devonta Freeman. He had a 19-yard TD catch in the fourth quarter and reversed field for a 46-yard run earlier in the game.

Bears left guard Kyle Long is also officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game with an ankle injury but told NFL Network's Stacey Dales that he's not where he wants to be. - Bears coach John Fox. We've got a lot of stuff to correct. "(Cohen) didn't surprise anybody that's in that locker room". He touched the ball a total of 20 times, and he says he was prepared for his fair share of snaps. "It was good sound effects to it but you know, I bounce back off that". "Then I caught it and I felt like it was nearly auto-pilot". However, the fact he got down the field so quickly and then the run after the catch showcased how risky Hooper can be.

It's possible the Bears could elevate undrafted rookie Tanner Gentry from the practice squad or sign a free agent wide receiver. "So for him to have, this play came and they tried to attack me on the same way and make the play, I was really pumped for him on the sideline".

The Bears believe they have the makings of a strong front seven if they stay healthy, with nose tackle Eddie Goldman, defensive end Akiem Hicks and linebackers Danny Trevathan and Leonard Floyd leading the way.

"To me it wasn't a controversial pick at all", said Joniak. "I don't know what their record is being held to 23 but I don't think it's great".

And while Cohen would have preferred a victory, he's happy to be contributing from the start.

As mentioned above, the absence of Prince Amukamara gives the Bears a headache when it comes to covering superstar receiver Julio Jones. There were a number of occasions when they were just too fast for their own good.
