    Thomas Jones

    any word on his injury? He has been having a pretty good season. I sure as helll hope that he doesn't play this sunday but I can't find any news on his injury. It looked pretty bad on tape.

    Doesn't sound like he'll be playing Sunday. Cedric may be in.

    Knee injury likely to sideline Jones

    The Bears issued no official word on the severity of injuries to Thomas Jones, Ruben Brown and John Tait on Monday, but signs don't look as promising as hoped.

    A MRI test on Jones' right knee revealed a stretched lateral collateral ligament. The results are being sent to noted surgeon James Andrews for a second opinion, but it's likely Jones will miss Sunday's game against Minnesota.


    Shortly after Brown painted an optimistic picture about his injured left pectoral muscle, coach Lovie Smith offered a different view.

    "He didn't tear it completely, which is good," Smith said. "You never know how long it will take."

    Asked if that meant Brown's MRI test had revealed a partial tear, Smith demurred.

    "He didn't tear it completely," he repeated. "I'll just say that. You go from there."

    Brown carried a shopping bag as he left Halas Hall.

    "I've had a torn pec before," the guard said. "This one doesn't really feel like a torn pec. My range of motion is a lot better than it was [Sunday]. [Sunday] I couldn't even hold this bag in my hand. Now I can. I can raise my arm. I'm feeling good about the way things feel."

    Offensive line stability has been integral to the Bears' success in rushing the football. Roberto Garza replaced Brown and struggled early by committing a face-mask penalty and allowing a sack.

    But Garza played while the Bears marched 93 yards on 12 plays for their lone touchdown drive, with Jones rushing seven times for 73 yards.

    Tait blocked on that drive but later left with a sprained left ankle. Smith said the left tackle, who wore a walking boot, is day-to-day.

    Jones has three straight 100-yard rushing games, so losing him would be a big blow. If he's out, would Cedric Benson start?

    "Cedric is next in the rotation, but I was pleased with what Adrian Peterson did," Smith said. "He's a good running back."

    "If at first you don't succeed, parachuting is not for you"

    should give us a little more of an edge since he scores most of their points and compiles more yardage than orton does some games.

    now if our defense shows up, we should win this game.

    This could be a big break.

    I hate to see anyone hurt unless it is a Newman or Cryboy fan.

    With the way things have played out for the Vikes I hope it can make a difference.
    We have had our share of injuries, put that together with an overall crappy team and we have struggled.
    :wink:

    You took the words away from my fingers!

    I have him too, and yes, he's been playing well. This is my first time playing FF and didn't know that the key to winning is grabbing top running backs, so Jones has been a savior to my team.
