Grant needed more time

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears released Mark Anderson and signed veteran Charles Grant last week. Grant was inactive for Sunday's game, however. Lovie Smith said he needed more time to get aclimated.

Meanwhile, rookie defensive end Corey Wootton was actived for the first time this season and assisted on a tackle.

"It's hard to come in and have a few days of practice and really be ready to go," Smith said of Grant, who was playing for the UFL's Omaha Nighthawks when signed by the Bears. "We wanted to wait another week at least, just to learn the defense a little more. But at the same time we've been encouraged by what Corey Wootton has been doing. We felt like he deserved an opportunity to play. He did some good things yesterday."

Charles Grant, how much could he have left, I hope a lot. Too bad about Mark Anderson, I guess he earned it.

Tommie Harris has earned it to but maybe the Bears still think they can get something for Harris, not likely but maybe?

Indonije and Peppers seem to be a tandem that looks pretty good.

Give the other end job to Izzy...he deserves it, he played like a man on a mission !

Izzy is making this question a lot less important. Wooton didn't stink either. Long way to go, but the decision on Anderson is feeling better and Grant hasn't played a down yet.
