One of the hardest parts of any NFL head coach has got to be facing the media when their team is going through challenges, and after the Bears third straight loss to start off the 2016 season, John Fox was short and curt when addressing the media on Monday.
When asked about the condition of quarterback Jay Cutler, who sprained his throwing thumb during Week 2 versus the Philadelphia Eagles, Fox replied "He's day to day." Pressed for more info, he reiterated Cutler had a sprained thumb, and that they are taking it one day at a time.
Asked about running back Jeremy Langford, who was carted off the field Sunday night, Fox stated he had a sprained ankle, but balked at giving any type of timetable. If Langford is unable to go this week versus the Lions, rookie Jordan Howard will carry the bulk of the load (if not all of it).
No updates were provided on linebacker Danny Trevathan, who is sidelined indefinitely with a thumb injury of his own. Trevathan had surgery this week, and will be out at least a couple more week, presumably.
Fox also stated Kyle Fuller was still nursing a 'sore knee', but that was all he would say.
