NFC Notes: Bears, Rams, Saints, Seahawks


Bears HC John Fox announced that they’re sticking with Mike Glennon as their starting for Week 3’s game against the Steelers.

“Mike Glennon will be our starting quarterback against Pittsburgh and we’re going to do everything we can to get him prepared,” Fox said.

When asked about when rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky will be ready, Fox said: “I don’t know that anybody has a crystal ball as to when that is.”


Rams DT Aaron Donald was clearly not happy with his performance this past weekend after he recently ended his holdout.

Donald explained that the transition to a 3-4 base defense really isn’t a big deal and he just needs to win his one-on-one opportunities.

“It’s the same as a 4-3, honestly,” Donald said, via “I had a lot of one-on-ones. I need to win those. That’s what they put me out there for. Just gotta knock off the cobwebs and go out there and play a lot better and help my team win, and try to pull out close games like this.



Seahawks HC Pete Carroll was asked about RB Eddie Lacy and his role with the team moving forward after he was a healthy scratch this past weekend.

I’m hoping he’s going to be part of everything,” Carroll said in an interview with 710 ESPN Seattle, per Brady Henderson. “I have no problem with the thought of it moving forward. I think we’re fortunate.

Carroll added that Lacy was disappointed about not being active, but they still plan for their running backs to fight for playing time.

“Those guys are going to keep battling for their playing time, their reps and all that,” Carroll said. “This was because of the whole makeup of the roster on this day, he had had to go [with Rawls] coming back up. So we’ll see what happens. All of that stuff is always fluid.”

  • Carroll also mentioned during a radio interview Monday that TE Jimmy Graham is dealing with a sore ankle and it’s unclear if he will play against the Titans on Sunday. (Bob Condotta)
