LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Linebacker Jerrell Freeman on Monday became the second Chicago Bears player suspended for violating the leagues performance-enhancing drug policy in as many weeks.Freeman was suspended for four weeks and is eligible to return to practice before the Dec. 24 home game against the Washington Redskins. Freeman, in his first year in Chicago after signing as a free agent, leads the Bears with 69 tackles and with 22 assists.He apologized and said he took full responsibility for a mistake with my prescription medication. Last week, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was suspended four games for the same violation and will be eligible to return for the Dec. 18 game against Green Bay.Obviously it puts us in a tough spot, coach John Fox said a day after his team lost 22-16 to the New York Giants . Thats why you usually see apologies, I think they understand that and its obviously a mistake and one they typically regret.These guys understand all the parameters of the drug testing involved in our league, Fox added. But much like Alshon, we move on and well move on without Jerrell.Despite the pair of suspension in such a short time, Fox said he didnt think it was a problem specific to Chicago.Its an issue everywhere in the league, he said. Thats why we have drug testing in any professional sport or even Olympic sports. It happens, unfortunately.Without Freeman, the Bears will turn to either John Timu or Nick Kwiatkoski alongside Danny Trevathan at inside linebacker.For me, I know what type of person Jerrell is, Bears tackle Charles Leno Jr. said. He made a mistake, he owned up to it and I forgive him. Its a loss that were going to have on the defensive side of the ball, but that gives opportunities for guys like Nick to step up, so Im excited to see Nick play this week if he gets the opportunity, and John Timu.The suspensions come at a poor time for the Bears, who lost tight end Zach Miller to a broken right foot against the Giants as they dropped to 2-8. They also lost several other players in the game, including rookie linebacker Leonard Floyd to a scary neck injury. Floyd was put on a stretcher and taken to a hospital.Fox said the teams top draft choice was feeling better and made it to the team charter for the return to Chicago on Sunday night. Fox said its too early to tell whether Floyd could play Sunday at Soldier Field against Tennessee.I think hes got some neck soreness, hes in the concussion protocol, Fox said. The real serious stuff is behind him.Fox also said star right guard Kyle Long will have surgery on his right ankle next Monday. The three-time Pro Bowl lineman was hurt in last weeks loss at Tampa Bay and placed on injured reserve.Fox said Long will have surgery to repair a left shoulder injury he has been dealing with since the preseason in the distant future.Game notes G Josh Sitton (ankle) and CB CreVon LeBlanc (concussion) also were injured Sunday, and Fox had no further news on the severity of their injuries. ... The Bears waived DL Jimmy Staten. In his third season, Staten has not appeared in a regular-season game with the Kansas City Chiefs (2015-16), New England Patriots (2015), New York Giants (2015), Seattle Seahawks (2014-15) and Chicago Bears (2016).---More AP NFL coverage: http://pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Mavericks Jerseys Authentic .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. Cheap Mavericks Jerseys . Peter Gammons, an analyst for Major League Baseballs network and website, drew the ire of hockey fans on Sunday when he criticized the two NHL teams on Twitter for their physical game the night before. http://www.cheapmavericksjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-ray-spalding-jersey . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. Luka Doncic Jersey . -- Jimmie Johnson held off a teammate, passed a pair of Hall of Famers, and dominated once more at Dover. Wholesale Mavericks Jerseys .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve does not do hyperbole. So if she agrees with the suggestion that her teams Game 4 victory in Los Angeles was one of the gutsiest wins shes been a part of with the Lynx, its not an overstatement.That victory kept the Lynx alive as they aim for their fourth title in six seasons. Minnesota meets Los Angeles on Thursday with the WNBA championship on the line in front of whats expected to be a sold-old Target Center for Game 5 (ESPN2, 8 p.m. ET).The Lynx dealt with foul trouble for defensive stalwart Rebekkah Brunson, and a very intense -- if marred by a few key mistakes -- effort from the Sparks to triumph 85-79 at Staples Center on Sunday and tie the WNBA Finals best-of-five series at 2-2.Natasha Howard came in to play important minutes in place of Brunson, who has primarily guarded Sparks center Candace Parker throughout the series. And Maya Moore, who was the game-high scorer with 31 points, also spent time defensively on Parker.We fortunate, I think, to get through it, Reeve said of the time spent on the bench by Brunson. I think Tashas minutes were extremely solid, and Maya gave us a different dimension that they hadnt really had to prepare for before. She was adequate, for sure, with post defense. I thought we handled it as well as we could.In this series between the teams with the two best records in the WNBA, weve seen a little of everything.Its been an emotional Finals, just the highs and the lows of both teams being so tightly matched, Moore said. You just feel the devastation of a loss, and the highs of a win. It takes a lot to get back to that place of competing with focus.But Minnesota is the franchise that has done that the most consistently over the past six seasons. A victory Thursday would give the Lynx their fourth championship, tying the Houston Comets record.The Lynx have been carrying around this historical goal all season, but it hasnt been a burden. They came into 2016 thinking that this could be the organizations best team, and that was the case through the regular season as the Lynx set a franchise record for wins (28-6).Now theyve reached the end of the line with one more winner-take-all game, and thee fundamentals are solidly in place -- and have been for years now.dddddddddddd This coaching staff and core group of players know what theyre doing.I think because of our preparation and how weve approached every game this season, we have the ability to do some great things in situations like this, Moore said. Nothings ever guaranteed. But I think we have enough experience, that understanding of what it takes to have a game where you have no regrets. We know how to strive for perfection on the big stage. And were looking forward to this challenge again.The Lynx went through a Game 5 just last year, in fact, after a back-and-fourth WNBA Finals series with Indiana. The Fevers offense, though, just seemed spent by that point, after theyd given all they had to win Game 4 and send the series back to Minnesota. The Lynx prevailed 69-52 at Target Center.Lynx center Sylvia Fowles, who was the MVP of that series, expects this Game 5 to be close.I think its going to be very gritty, said Fowles, who has been so key both with her rebounding and clogging up space inside that the Sparks post players want. Nothing is going to come easy. We have to do what we do well.We have this thing we call hot spots, and thats where other teams are at their best shooting. We just try to take them away from those spots, let them see traffic there a little bit.The Lynx were most dominant in this series in Game 2. They made defensive adjustments from their Game 1 loss and won 79-60, which tied for the Sparks lowest point total this season. The Lynx were able to hold league MVP Nneka Ogwumike to just six shots in Game 2, and force Parker to take a lot of her 12 shots in places she didnt prefer to take them.A defensive effort similar to that will make the Lynx very hard to beat.But I feel like even in Game 3, we had a good mindset, Lynx point guard Lindsay Whalen said of Minnesotas 92-75 loss last Friday, which was the game in which the Sparks were the most in control.Both teams are just fighting so hard. This series really has been what you want the Finals to be about.
