Tim Jennings on his dislocated shoulder: "It's real frustrating"

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears will play a second consecutive game without starting cornerback Tim Jennings.

And he's not handling that fact too well.

"It's real frustrating," Jennings told the Sun-Times Saturday. "It's been the most frustrating two weeks all year long. You're just there, watching practice, in the meeting room, but you can't help.

The emergence of Jennings this season was a key in the strong play of the defense. He has eight interceptions, including one he returned for a touchdown.

But Jennings dislocated his shoulder when Seattle Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson drilled him near the sideline.

Asked if he's heard from Robinson, Jennings said, "Nah, I ain't heard from him.

"I ain't got nothing to say to him. No, he's good people."

Jennings said he has to be smarter.

"I should have known who he was. But its just football," Jennings said.

The Bears didn't put Jennings on injured reserve, and he was hoping to get back for today's game. Now, he's focused on next Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

"I'm trying to get back. We're just going to be smart about it," he said. "There's always hope. I'm going to keep doing this rehab."
