Who would be on the Bears' version of Mt. Rushmore?

Detroit Lions

Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah is proving to be a quick learner in picking up the team's defensive scheme.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford: “The main fuel for me is I want to keep progressing in the right direction, I want to be a great quarterback and I want to be able to help this team win, and the only way I’m going to be able to do that is if I let nothing get in my way and just concentrate on what I’m supposed to concentrate on and get better at what I need to get better at.”

Green Bay Packers

If Desmond Bishop and the Packers can't agree on a re-structured contract, the linebacker will be released, according to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy: “We’re clearly further ahead than we were last year, and that’s really the only time period that I have [for comparison] as far as training the football team.”

Minnesota Vikings

Linebacker Chad Greenway is scheduled to have arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday.

Former Vikings defensive end Kenechi Udeze will work with the team through its second preseason game as a minority coaching fellow.
