    Cornerback Vasher latest to join Bears' inactivity list

    [size=18px]Cornerback Vasher latest to join Bears' inactivity list [/size]

    June 13, 2006
    BY BRAD BIGGS Staff Reporter


    Ricky Manning Jr. worked with the Bears' first team at right cornerback Monday at Halas Hall, and according to the guidelines coach Lovie Smith has laid out, the position could be his soon.

    Pro Bowl cornerback Nathan Vasher has been absent from organized team activities (OTAs) since last Wednesday and didn't participate in on-field activities when he did attend last week.

    While leaving the field last Wednesday after a session he didn't take part in, Vasher said he wasn't injured.

    Smith demoted Pro Bowl weak-side linebacker Lance Briggs and running back Thomas Jones to the second team during the mandatory minicamp earlier this month because they are boycotting the voluntary portions of the offseason program. If Vasher continues to miss the OTAs, which run through June 22, he could be running with the second team, too, when he does return.

    General manager Jerry Angelo didn't return messages seeking comment on the situation. Vasher made the Pro Bowl in his second season after grabbing eight interceptions, the third-most in team history.

    A fourth-round pick in 2004, Vasher has two years remaining on his contract, meaning he can't become a restricted free agent after this season. He received a $390,000 signing bonus in his rookie contract and is scheduled to earn $425,000 this season.

    Manning, signed as a free agent in April, worked as the backup to Charles Tillman on the left side during minicamp, when he was with the first nickel unit.

    NOTES: Sixth-round draft pick J.D Runnels, a fullback from Oklahoma, signed a four-year contract with a signing bonus of about $83,000. Runnels is the third Bears draftee to sign, leaving the team with four to go.

    *Wide receiver Airese Currie was back in action after missing more than a week with a pulled quadriceps. Defensive tackle Alfonso Boone, who missed minicamp after wrist surgery, participated in drills and wore a brace.

    *Single-game tickets will go on sale July 22 through Ticketmaster phone and Internet outlets only. Tickets are priced from $60 to $340, with a limit of four per customer per game. There's no limit for preseason games Aug. 18 against San Diego and Aug. 25 against Arizona. For information, call the ticket office at (847) 815-2327.
