Bears HC Matt Nagy said DE Khalil Mack is “day-to-day” with a right ankle injury and the team plans to be “cautious” going forward.
“We’re going to continue to just keep an eye on it and make sure whatever we do we’re more cautious than anything,” Nagy said, via Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune. “I believe in that, and I think it’s important to go that route. It’ll be more of a day-to-day thing.”
Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill tells Ian Rapoport that everyone thought they’d be in a better position at this point than their 1-5 record.
“I think everybody’s expectations are that it would be going better than it is now, but I think Coach [Steve] Wilks is dialed in. We’ve seen some progress, but I know we’re all looking for much more progress,” Bidwill said.
Bidwill did say that he’s pleased with what he’s seen from first round QB Josh Rosen up to this point.
“I think Josh, we knew when we drafted him that there was a chance he may play this year and if he did play, that it might be some growing pains,” Bidwill said. “I’m really pleased with seeing his progress because he’s done a great job. Definitely got the right attitude to step onto the field, he’s super smart, players are rallying around him.”
- Albert Breer doesn’t think the Cardinals really have CB Patrick Peterson and WR Larry Fitzgerald available for trade, despite the recent reports.
- However, Breer does believe Arizona would consider trading LB Haason Reddick and LB/S Deone Bucannon.
- According to Vaughn McClure, Falcons RB Devonta Freeman‘s MRI of his groin revealed that he needed surgery and there was “some discussions” about Freeman waiting until the end of the season to undergo surgery and having “some injections” to cope with the pain.
- McClure adds that Freeman was told that a procedure would keep him out “six weeks” but he has not yet scheduled a surgery.
