LAKE FOREST, Ill. - With his team coming off a bye, Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman continues to look for answers to his teams struggles.Trestman on Monday said hes seen little evidence of any locker room tension within the team as practices began for Sunday nights game in Green Bay.The support in this building has been outstanding, Trestman said. Thats all I can say. Everybody upstairs has been extremely supportive of the way were handling things.Our team has been unbelievably compliant in doing everything that we, as coaches, and myself have asked them to do. Thats evident on the field. Its evident in the locker room.Trestman said he sees no drop in effort during practices or meetings.What we havent seen is the production on Sundays, he said.Bears coaches spent a week self-scouting to pinpoint flaws after giving players off Tuesday through Sunday during the bye.I think that it came down to a number of things, Trestman said. It comes down to play selection. It comes down mental errors. It comes down to penalties. It comes down to those things that really are the result of things that you can control.Thats what we have to assess in our assessment what are the things that we can control to be more consistent. Theres a litany of things. I gave you just a few that every team has to do well for them to start faster.In last place in the NFC North and three games behind the Detroit Lions, the Bears have played only one division game and lost 38-17 to Green Bay.Everything that we want is still ahead of us, safety Ryan Mundy said. Coach Trestman pointed out two examples of teams who were at similar starts as us.In 2012, the Redskins, I believe started out 3-6 and won their division. And then last year, the Eagles started out 3-5 and ended up winning their division. We have a lot of football left and every game is a critical game for us right now. Theyre all NFC opponents and theyre all division games, so theyre all must wins for us.The Bears also have five of their final seven games at home, although that hasnt been a positive this season as theyre 0-3 in Soldier Field.Getting players back healthy could benefit them.Linebacker Lance Briggs is expected back from a rib injury after missing three straight starts. Safety Chris Conte had a week off after suffering through shoulder sprains and concussions in the first half. And rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller had a week off to rest three injuries, including a broken hand.The offence will go into the workweek trying to decide on a replacement for injured left guard Matt Slauson, who went on injured reserve. Michael Ola appears to be the candidate of choice at this point. Theyve also considered moving right tackle Jared Mills to left guard, but Ola played the last game at left guard after Slausons season-ending pectoral injury.The defence sees a need to become more physical, with Briggs and the entire linebacker group expected back after the top four linebackers were out at one point in the first half.Weve got to outhit our opponents and weve got to do that for however long that game goes, Young said.Trestman called Briggs a key to the defence recovering after giving up 51 points to New England in the previous game. Briggs normally calls defensive signals and changes.We want him to bring his best, Trestman said. Having him out there being the vocal, the leader part of it is certainly a huge part of it, getting people lined up, and then just playing as hard and as fast as hes capable of playing, as he did when we started the season.NOTES: Defensive end David Bass was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster to replace defensive end Lamarr Houston, who went on injured reserve due to a ruptured anterior cruciate knee ligament suffered in a post-sack celebration. Bass has 20 1/2 tackles, a sack and 2 1/2 tackles for loss in his two-year NFL career. ... T Jason Weaver was signed to the practice squad.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Fozzy Whittaker Jersey .com) - No Sidney Crosby, no problem. Wes Horton Jersey . -- Blake Griffin scored 32 points and grabbed eight rebounds, DeAndre Jordan had 14 points and 22 rebounds and the Los Angeles Clippers outlasted the Golden State Warriors 98-96 on Thursday night to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round series. http://www.nflpanthersgearofficial.com/trai-turner-jersey/.com) - The Chicago Cubs reportedly signed recently-acquired outfielder Dexter Fowler to a one-year contract on Friday, avoiding arbitration. Andrew Norwell Jersey . Dancevic won his singles match on Friday, defeating Go Soeda 6-4, 7-6 (2), 6-1, to even the best-of-five series at a game apiece. World No. 18 Kei Nishikori defeated Peter Polansky in the opening match, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. Brenton Bersin Jersey . Zimmermann became the National Leagues first 16-game winner, pitching seven solid innings to lead the Washington Nationals past the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 Wednesday night.(SportsNetwork.com) - One point guard will return, while another will sit when the Minnesota Timberwolves visit American Airlines Center to take on the Dallas Mavericks. Ricky Rubio is slated to return to the Timberwolves lineup Monday after missing 42 games with a sprained ankle. The team went 6-37 in his absence. Hes seen three specialists and all of them have cleared him if things are OK come Monday, head coach Flip Saunders said on Saturday. They have OKd him to be able to play on a limited time basis. We will have to wait until Monday pretty much comes. For the Mavs, Rajon Rondo is out with a facial injury. Rondo was hurt early in the first quarter in Orlando after a collision with teammate Richard Jefferson. Jeffersons knee hit the face of Rondo, whose head then struck the floor. The Mavs defeated the Magic, 108-93, Saturday. Monta Ellis scored 25 points and handed out 13 assists to help the Mavericks defeat Orlando. After leading by as much as 27, the Mavericks edge was cut to as little as five in the fourth quarter before they pulled away again. Monta Ellis carried us again, Dallas head coach Rick Carlisle said. He was tremendous and made great defensive plays. Tyson Chandler added 20 points and nine rebounds for Dallas in its second straight win, and Dirk Nowitzki netted 11 points. Jefferson (14), Devin Harris (12) and J.J. Barea (10) rounded out the double-figure scorers for DDallas.dddddddddddd The Mavs have a two-game California trip, starting Wednesday. Rondos availability for that trek against the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings is unknown. Minnesota fell to the red-hot Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday in Kevin Loves return to the Twin Cities. Love, who was booed every time he touched the ball, had 14 points and 17 rebounds in Clevelands 106-90 victory over the Timberwolves. After playing his first six NBA seasons for the Timberwolves, Love was dealt to Cleveland as part of a three-team deal in the offseason. Minnesota acquired Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett, the last two No. 1 overall picks in the draft. Wiggins had himself a career night in a losing cause, scoring 33 points on 14- of-25 shooting. The 19-year-old matched the franchise record for most points by a teenager. I love the big stage and playing in the spotlight, Wiggins said. Its motivation for everybody. Thaddeus Young ended with 19 points for the Timberwolves, who have lost two straight. Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin had 14 points apiece, with Pekovic also pulling down 12 rebounds. Zach LaVine is expected to miss Mondays game with an ankle injury. Mo Williams could return against the Mavs after missing three games with a hip problem. The Mavs won both of this seasons meetings, but are just 2-4 in their last six as the host in this series.
