Just to be clear, the Bears didn't make a knee-jerk decision to deactivate Tommie Harris.
I'm told by several sources that Harris knew he would not start on either Wednesday or Thursday.
It's also been stressed to me that Harris is/ was healthy and that this was not disciplinary.
They've liked what Matt Toeaina has done, and they also wanted to get a look at Henry Melton and Marcus Harrison.
And whether he wants to be traded or not, that doesn't seem to be the Bears' intention.
Harris didn't have much to say last night, after the game. But, it'll be interesting to see how he responds to this. Will this fire him up? Will he become complacent? Or, will he become a distraction?
We'll find out.
