Won't even get to put on their uniforms this week... - Jonathan Daniel

The quarterback's injury will keep him out for at least another game, but team is optimistic he can play this season.

Here is the news many expected, and some hoped for:

This marks the seventh week that Lance Briggs will be out after his injury.  The initial timetable was 4-6 weeks.
