Another challenge for Bears: Martellus Bennett out for Green Bay

Hopefully Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase enjoys challenges.
 
Last week Gase was tasked with preparing for the Denver Broncos’ No. 1-ranked defense without his top running back (Matt Forte) and two top receivers (Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal).
 
On Thursday against the Green Bay Packers he’ll be calling plays for an offense again without Royal and now without tight end Martellus Bennett, out with a rib injury from the Denver game after playing in all 42 games since coming to the Bears in 2013.

Additionally, running back Ka’Deem Carey is out with the concussion suffered vs. Denver, after three straight games with 116 yards in spot duty behind Jeremy Langford. Jeffery was listed as questionable with a groin strain and already has missed five games this season, one fewer than his total over his first three seasons in the NFL.

WATCH: Mitchell Trubisky runs like Michael Vick for 8-yard touchdown

The New England Patriots defense wasn’t giving Mitchell Trubisky many options through the air, so he decided to take matters into his own hands at Soldier Field.

The young quarterback’s legs were the Bears’ most-effective weapon in the first quarter, as Trubisky led the team with 35 rushing yards on four carries in the opening period of play.

He capped it off with an eight-yard touchdown scramble that had him looking like Michael Vick on the field.

The Bears will need to have a more well-rounded offensive attack to keep up with teams like the Patriots, but Trubisky found what was working in the first quarter.

Perhaps most importantly, he’s been smart and safe with his running, opting to slide and go to the ground on his big plays to avoid any big hits.

His legs continue to make this offense more dynamic, to keep up with top-notch opponents like New England.

Watch Matt Forte attack Lance Briggs with a cardboard box, because why not

Watch Matt Forte attack Lance Briggs with a cardboard box, because why not

It's gameday. 

The Patriots are in town. 

Khalil Mack is probably playing with a significant injury. 

Stressed out? Don't blame you. So enjoy this video of Matt Forte pranking Lance Briggs:

The best pranks are the most simple ones.
