Iglesias should be active for first time
By JEFF DICKERSON
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears rookie receiver Juaquin Iglesias is the only healthy draft pick who hasn't dressed for a game. That is expected to change Sunday because as an ankle injury to fellow first-year receiver Johnny Knox should allow Iglesias to be active for the first time in 2009.
"I think I've improved big-time, especially since coming in for the rookie camp," Iglesias said. "I'm just trying to get better every day. I think I have, and I'll be fine. I think just waiting [was difficult]. You come from a school, and everybody is like the star on the team, then you have to wait all year. But that's the game. I've just been waiting, and now I'm ready."
Will the third-round pick out of Oklahoma have any butterflies Sunday before kickoff?
"I don't get nervous for games," Iglesias said. "I'll be ready."
