In today's edition of The Rundown, we look at the Bears' upcoming opponent: the Washington......nickname we're not supposed to say. Whatever you want to call them, at 1-4, Robert Griffin's team needs to recover before the season is lost. The Bears are dealing with some injuries but can extend their lead in the NFC North with a second straight win over an NFC East opponent leading up to their bye week.
Derrick Rose also missed a practice and a preseason game in Brazil, leaving us to wonder when the saga that is his (now) sore knee will end. Tom Thibodeau said Rose and Joakim Noah (groin) both practiced in full on Monday, meaning both should see time when the Bulls host the Pistons on Wednesday.
