Lovie Smith just wrapped up his Monday afternoon press conference and recapped the action Sunday night:
*** There are no significant injuries to report. He said there are some normal bumps and bruises and everyone should check out OK.
*** He preaches scoring on defense first and the unit responded by putting nine points on the board.
*** Obviously, the running game was praised but Smith pointed out the production on third down where the Bears were 10-for-16.
*** On running back Matt Forte ... "he's been patted on the back quite a bit today."
*** Smith was happy with the performance by John St. Clair at left tackle vs. Julius Peppers.
*** He praised the work of rookie defensive tackle Marcus Harrison, whose strong start allowed the team to keep Tommie Harris fresh and limit his reps somewhat.
*** Smith confirmed DT Anthony Adams, who was inactive Sunday, was a healthy scratch. Adams was the starter at nose tackle for four preseason games.
