NFL Notes: Bears, Bills, Jaguars, & Panthers


The Chicago Bears announced Monday that franchise WR Alshon Jeffery has reported to the team’s minicamp.

“I feel great to be back with my teammates and I look forward to competing,” Jeffery said.


  • Ian Rapoport reports that Bills CB Stephon Gilmore is expected to attend the team’s minicamp this week after sitting out of OTAs due to a lack of progress in contract talks.
  • However, Rapoport adds that Gilmore “won’t do much, if anything” during the minicamp sessions.


Jaguars DE Dante Fowler Jr. says he isn’t worried about his knee moving forward.

“This is not going to stop me from getting to a quarterback,” Fowler told USA TODAY Sports, “so I’m not worried about that at all.

“I know it’s going to be one day or one game when we all know that I’m back.

According to HC Gus Bradley, the ACL injury isn’t affecting Fowler from a mental standpoint.

“A lot of times when guys come back from their knee injury like that, there’s a period of time that it takes for them to grow confident that ‘it’s good, I trust it,’” Bradley explained. “Not with Dante Fowler. He got out there the first day and he went. Incredible mindset.”


  • Ian Rapoport reports that Panthers DT Kawann Short has arrived for the team’s mandatory minicamp after skipping OTAs last week.
