Watch Deon Bush rip the ball out of Hale Hentges' hands and score a 91-yard touchdown

Maybe the Great Bears Turnover Regression isn't coming after all?

One of the more impressive aspects of the Bears' preseason has been the defense's ability to continue creating turnovers, even without any minutes from the starters. 

This week's red zone turnover comes ala Deon Bush, who knocked the ball out of Hale Hentges' hands and took it 91 yards to the house: 

Play to the whistle fellas! 

Bears to don throwback helmets Sunday against Giants

Bears to don throwback helmets Sunday against Giants

The Bears are throwing it back to the past this weekend at Soldier Field.

The Bears will rock 1960s throwback helmets Sunday when they take on the New York Giants. The helmet is navy blue and features a white "C" logo and gray facemask, whereas the current helmet has an orange "C" and white facemask.

A look at the throwback lid:

The Bears donned those helmets from 1962-72 during the playing days of  Dick Butkus and Gale Sayers, now Hall of Famers. They won the 1963 NFL Championship along the way.

“I think a lot of Bears fans remember the ‘60s, especially the ’63 championship team winning at Wrigley against the Giants with those ‘Cs’ on our helmet,” Bears chairman George H. McCaskey said. “And of course Butkus and Sayers and all the great memories they provided. That small change I think means a lot to people.”

As 2019 is the Bears' 100th season as a franchise, they've been honoring a different decade at each home game. The Bears have also installed seven-foot tall bobbleheads around Chicago each week featuring players from that week's celebratory decade.

Unsurprisingly, this week's game will celebrate the 1960s, with Butkus and Sayers represented in life-size bobblehead form:

The Bears will give out bobbleheads of Butkus and Sayers to the first 20,000 fans who arrive at Sunday's game.

Mitch Trubisky practiced in full on Thursday

Mitch Trubisky practiced in full on Thursday

As Chicago continues to analyze Mitch Trubisky’s hip and figure out if his benching was actually injury related or performance related, the injury report from practice makes it seem like he should play on Sunday.

Trubisky was a full participant in practice on Thursday, just as he was on Wednesday. Back-to-back full practices would seem to indicate he should be full go for Sunday’s game against the Giants.

If not, then chaos will ensue.


As for the rest of the injury report, offensive lineman Bobby Massie was not limited with his back injury while linebacker Isaiah Irving was limited with a quad injury.
