The first week of NFL free agency isn't over yet, and it's already becoming difficult to keep track of who's coming and going.
The NFL's oldest rivals are spicing up their Sunday showdown with some serious trash talk.
Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs will not play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Cleveland Browns because of a sprained right ankle.
"It's kind of one of those things that's tough to deal with, when you lose a guy like Jay who's been playing really well, and a leader on the team," linebacker Nick Roach said. "But it's kind of one of those things that happen in football every week. Somebody loses a big part of their team, and that's why you have other guys on the roster who can play."
If a question exists about Briggs' availability, linebacker Nick Roach said most players are interchangeable at the position and there is good depth.
