After loss to Bucs, Bears stick with Mike Glennon at quarterback

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Bears coach John Fox said Monday the Bears will stick with Mike Glennon at quarterback after the former Buc struggled in Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay.

With rookie Mitch Trubisky remaining the No. 2 quarterback, Chicago next hosts the Steelers, then visits the Packers.

"Mike Glennon will be our starting quarterback against Pittsburgh and we're going to do everything we can to get him prepared," Fox said. "Not just Mike Glennon, our whole team."

He said the Bears "still feel pretty good" with the fifth-year pro and the problems in their 29-7 loss to the Bucs go beyond the quarterback. "After two games it's really hard to evaluate somebody," Fox said.

Tight end Zach Miller called Glennon "very capable."

Bucs next, Vikings stick with Keenum

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer believes that Sam Bradford's injured left knee is getting better, but is not sure when the starting quarterback can return. With the Bucs visiting on Sunday, Zimmer said backup Case Keenum will remain the starter while Bradford is out. Keenum struggled in a loss to the Steelers on Sunday, going 20-for-37 for 167 yards.

DOLPHINS: Coach Adam Gase declined to discuss Lawrence Timmons' future with the team after the linebacker went AWOL Saturday. Timmons apparently was dealing with a personal matter. Gase said he hadn't talked with Timmons: "I'm kind of dealing with the guys that played. I've got two rules (be on time and play hard). It's not hard."

BROWNS: Receiver Corey Coleman had surgery for a broken bone in his right hand and might miss the season. He suffered the same injury last year.

FALCONS: All-Pro edge rusher Vic Beasley will miss 1-3 games with a mild hamstring strain sustained in Sunday night's 34-23 victory over the Packers.

JAGUARS: Quarterback Ryan Nassib was signed to the active roster as insurance because Blake Bortles has a wrist injury. Nassib was waived by the Saints in final cuts.

PATRIOTS: Tight end Rob Gronkowski said a groin injury he sustained Sunday is not serious and that he is day to day.
