Center Olin Kreutz returned to work this afternoon, after missing the first two days of practice this week, but Desmond Clark remains sidelined. And not only is he still sidelined, he may miss Sunday's game against the Eagles.
"Nobody had any issues on either side," Bears spokesman Scott Hagel said. "We love working with NBC, and we love having our games on national television. NBC and the Bears have always been on the same page."
The issue arose after the network informed the Bears of a planned piece on Cutler's rocky season, and how expectations were so high at the beginning of the year. NBC wanted to speak with the quarterback, Smith and Angelo for the segment.
"What else is left to be said about the subject?" Hagel said. "We just need to play better."
