NFL Notes: Bears, Chargers, Colts, Eagles


Bears HC John Fox was unclear about WR Kevin White‘s recovery from a fracture in his left fibula.

We’re not really going to get much into that, as far as who’s in and who’s out,” Fox said, via Dan Weiderer of the Chicago Tribune. “It’s just realizing that we’re not lining up to play just yet.


Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said first-round WR Mike Williams is “getting behind” after missing the first two weeks of minicamp due to tightness in his back.

I’d like to see him out there next week because he’s getting behind right now, and we’ve got to get him back out on the field,” Lynn said, via Eric D. Williams of ESPN. “If he wasn’t a rookie it would be different. But he has so much to learn, and some of this you can only learn on the field.

As for WR Keenan Allen‘s recovery from ACL surgery, Lynn said the receiver is recovering well but still has to be limited “a little bit.

He’s making all of the cuts, but he’s been looking that way for the last month and a half,” Lynn said. “And now we just implemented him in team (drills), and he looks good.

We still have to limit him a little bit. He wants to be out there every play, but we’ve got to protect him from himself. But he’s a competitor.”


Colts S Clayton Geathers (neck) said he feels that he is recovering well but was unclear about his timetable for recovery.

I feel very confident with what the doctors are saying and how it’s looking,” Geathers said, via George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin. “I’m just doing everything I’ve got to do on my end. I’m feeling positive about it.”

Colts HC Chuck Pagano added that he is unsure about when Geathers will return.

I can’t tell you when Clayton is going to be available for us, but he’s doing everything as far as the rehab and the meetings,” said Pagano. “He’s just not practicing right now. When the doctors say he’s 100 percent and he’s ready to roll, then we’ll put him back out there.”


Eagles WR Jordan Matthews refuted rumors from earlier this offseason that the team is willing to trade him.

That’s fake news. Alternative facts,” Matthews said, via Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I don’t really care about that stuff, bro. I feel like it’s the NFL – everybody has a price. Those talks, they happen. It really doesn’t faze me in any way.”

Matthews added that he has not spoken with anyone regarding his future with the team past this season.

I haven’t really talked to anybody about that,” Matthews said. “I don’t really focus on that too much, to be honest. I think you all know me by now. That’s not what really fuels me. It’s one of the last things I actually think about. Whatever happens is going to end up happening. I just try to come out here and do what I need to do for my team.”
