The need for a more dynamic running back  (N/A)
The Bears have been checking out a lot of running back prospects , but none more than FAU’s Devin Singletary." was there for the Chicago Bears before they traded Jordan Howard to the Philadelphia Eagles, but now that he’s in Philly, it’s a foregone conclusion that the Bears will draft a running back at some point on NFL Draft weekend. They’ve met with more than a dozen prospects so far, but after they put Florida Atlantic’s Devin Singletary through a private workout on Wednesday at FAU, that will be the fourth time they’ve talked with him. Path to the Draft is reporting that the Bears will be the only team that will have officially met with him and put him through a private workout. The Bears also talked with him at the FAU pro day and at the NFL Combine, so they’re making sure to gather as much info on the 5’7”, 203 pounder as possible.In three years at FAU, Singletary racked up 4,287 yards on 714 carries (6.0 ypc) with 66 touchdowns. He only caught 51 balls for 397 yards, but scouts believe he has the necessary skills to be a three down back in the NFL. When watching his college tape you see a shifty runner that can make defenders miss, but his combine numbers were alarmingly bad. This is either a case of a good football player simply not testing well, or this may have something to do with the level of competition he faced while playing for the Owls. His four biggest games last year came against Old Dominion Womens Richard Dent Jersey , Louisiana Tech, Florida International, and Western Kentucky, which aren’t exactly NCAA powerhouses. What are your thoughts on all the Bears interest in Singletary? CINCINNATI (AP)Three cornerbacks injured, a linebacker and a running back in concussion protocol. The Bengals paid a price for their acrimonious, season-dooming loss to the Steelers on Monday night at Paul Brown Stadium. What’s left of their roster and their playoff hopes will be on the line Sunday against a Bears team that long ago was ready for hibernation. There will be a lot of empty seats as two teams go at it, looking for one day’s respite. ”This part of the season is a challenge every year, good or bad,” Bears coach John Fox said. ”People remember what you did in December. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the thick of things or not.” When it’s all over, the Bengals (5-7) most likely will remember last Monday night as the worst indignity in another disappointing season. They blew a 17-point lead to their bitter rivals, who pulled one out – yet again – on a last-second field goal for a 23-20 victory . Cincinnati came out of the physical game with significant players hurt, including three cornerbacks Dan Hampton Jersey , linebacker Vontaze Burfict and running back Joe Mixon. Burfict got a concussion and was carted off the field after receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster leveled him with a blindside block and then stood over him in a taunting pose, drawing a one-game suspension from the NFL. Bengals safety George Iloka initially got a one-game suspension for hitting Antonio Brown in the head on a touchdown catch, but it was rescinded and reduced to a $36,464.50 fine. Although the Bengals aren’t mathematically eliminated – a 5-7 team has reached the playoffs as a wild card in three of the past four seasons – they’re basically running on empty. ”Just win out,” defensive end Carlos Dunlap said. ”We can’t overlook this one.” The Bears (3-9) are in a deep slide as they make only their third visit to Paul Brown Stadium. They’ve lost five in a row, their longest losing streak in a season since they dropped their last five in 2014. They dropped eight straight in 2002. Much of their focus is on rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who is struggling in one of the NFL’s worst offenses and is 2-6 as a starter. He went 12 of 15 for only 102 yards during a 15-14 loss to the 49ers last week, but Fox praised the performance as a step forward. The Bears rank last in total offense, yards passing and passing attempts. ”People have gone through a lot worse, a lot worse seasons and come out on the other side,” said Trubisky, whose passer rating is sixth-worst in the league. ”You try to look at those success stories. You can just always believe you’ll beat the odds.” Some things to watch Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium: DALTON’S INTERCEPTION STREAK: Andy Dalton hasn’t thrown an interception since the Bengals’ 29-14 loss at Pittsburgh on Oct. 22. His streak of six games without an interception ties for second-longest in club history , as does his 176 pass attempts without getting picked off. Neil O’Donnell went seven games and 238 attempts without one in 1998. STEELERS HANGOVER: Another season-crushing loss to the Steelers left the Bengals with only the smallest of playoff chances, and they know it. Several of them called the Monday night game a must-win situation. With one less day to prepare, it’ll be interesting to see how much enthusiasm the Bengals have left. WHO’S AT CORNERBACK: Starters Adam ”Pacman” Jones (groin) and Dre Kirkpatrick (concussion) were hurt in the loss to Pittsburgh, as was Darqueze Dennard (knee). Two safeties also are hurt, so the Bears’ woeful passing game will be facing a secondary that’s patched together. BLOCK OUT: The Bears’ offense took another hit during the week when right guard Kyle Long was placed on injured reserve because of a shoulder injury. The three-time Pro Bowler has also dealt with a finger issue this year and was placed on IR last year because of an ankle injury. The Bears will be missing a key blocker, which doesn’t bode well for Trubisky or Jordan Howard, who has run for 6 and 38 yards the past two games against Philadelphia and San Francisco. WHAT HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE? The Bengals are only 3-3 at home this season, playing in front of small crowds. Their Monday night game drew 56,029 – many of them Steelers fans – leaving 10,000 empty seats. It’s likely to be worse for the final home games against the Bears and the Lions on Christmas eve. — AP Sports Writer Andrew Seligman in Chicago contributed to this report. —
