Chicago Bears head coach John Fox sounded annoyed when reporters pressed him for an update on wide receiver Alshon Jeffery's injured calf: "It's not like he's sitting there eating bonbons. He's conditioning." Fox has listed Jeffery as "day-to-day" since August 12.

Upon further review Chicago Bears backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen did suffer a concussion vs. the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. The club originally announced that Clausen passed the concussion test administered at Paul Brown Stadium, but Clausen later experienced delayed symptoms, according to head coach John Fox. Clausen also missed Week 17 of last year because of a concussion.

As the Chicago Bears search for a permanent solution at right tackle, head coach John Fox said on Monday that two-time Pro Bowl right guard Kyle Long "has enough practice experience to play both guard or tackle." Moving Long outside may eventually be the Bears' best option. So far, Jordan Mills and Charles Leno have failed to nail down the starting job. Long spent the final weeks of the Bears' offseason program playing both tackle spots.

Former Pro Bowl cornerback Tim Jennings did not start in Saturday's 21-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Five different cornerbacks played for the Chicago Bears before Jennings entered the game late in the second quarter. Is Jennings' roster spot in jeopardy? "I think everyone's is. There's 90 people - do the math," Bears head coach John Fox said.
