BATTLING BEARS SUFFER ANOTHER BLOW

The 2016 season has been a tough one for the Chicago Bears. They’ve dealt with a quarterback controversy, a suspect defense and shake-ups across the roster.

The lone bright patch has been the play of star receiver Alshon Jeffery, who’s been a catalyst for a struggling offense. With the return of Jay Cutler, Jeffery has got back to catching passes and working toward another productive season.

The Bears’ small mercy took a turn for the worse today, however, with the NFL announcing that Jeffery would be suspended for four games after allegedly violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

The move is a death blow to the already slim chance of a Chicago turnaround this season, as now the offense has no playmaking out wide or under center.

At least Chicago has the Cubs.
