From Neil Hayes, who is in Canton, Ohio:

Bears chairman George McCaskey may have been in Canton, for Richard Dent's Hall of Fame induction ceremony, but the playing surface at Soldier Field wasn't far from his mind.

The Bears family night practice at Soldier Field was cancelled Friday because the field was in such poor shape that it was deemed a safety risk. While McCaskey said the Bears and the park district grounds crew have a "good working relationship," he also said the organization will attempt to work even closer with the park district crew to make sure nothing like that happens again.

"We feel so bad for the fans," McCaskey said. "We're so sorry for those people who sat in traffic.

"We rely on the park district to make sure the field is playable. We need to make sure that's the case. It comes down to player safety."
