He can return to the playing field Sept. 30.Garcia was taken in the third round of the 2017 draft by New England. The Patriots put him on the non-football injury list in September 2017 and released Garcia in May 2018.Three days later, the New York Jets claimed Garcia off waivers. The Jets released Garcia on Aug. 31 and Indy signed him to the practice squad on Oct. 29.On May 31, the league announced Colts quarterback Chad Kelly had been suspended for two games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.The Colts also announced Monday that they had signed defensive tackle Caraun Reid after putting defensive end Jegs Jegede on injured reserve. Jegede signed with the Colts as an undrafted rookie in early May after playing at Valdosta State.Reid has played in 44 career games with Dallas, Indianapolis, Washington, Detroit and the San Diego Chargers since 2014.Jegede, who also played two seasons of college basketball at Central Florida, joins draft pick Javon Patterson, a center from Mississippi, on season-ending injured reserve. LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears receiver Allen Robinson had a tough time coming to grips with the fact that there was no game to prepare for this week when he woke up Monday morning.“Pretty crazy T.J. Hockenson Jersey ,” he said.Safety Adrian Amos figured the Bears would be planning for their next opponent, not cleaning out their lockers.“Things happen, you know, time to take it in, put it behind you and start working for next year,” he said.Chicago’s season ended in the cruelest possible way, with embattled kicker Cody Parkey’s potential winning field goal hitting the left upright and crossbar in the closing seconds of a 16-15 wild-card loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.Instead of preparing for a trip to Los Angeles to face the Rams, the Bears turned their attention toward building on what they accomplished this season. And they accomplished quite a bit.The Monsters of the Midway went 12-4 to win the NFC North in their first season under coach Matt Nagy after four straight last-place finishes and made the playoffs for the first time in eight years. They finished with their best record since the 2006 team went 13-3 and reached the Super Bowl.They saw progress from quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in his second NFL season. They dominated on defense, with Khalil Mack leading the way after a blockbuster trade from Oakland just before the season.They also made Sundays fun again in Chicago, with their coach setting the tone, and re-energized a franchise frustrated by years of losing.“I think having such great chemistry makes today easier http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-jahlani-tavai-jersey ,” guard Kyle Long said. “Today is tough regardless, but having guys you can lean on — I’ll be going to dinner with some of these guys this week. We have real friends in this locker room, it’s not just teammates. That’s important.”The Bears have some issues to address, starting with Parkey’s future.Parkey made the Pro Bowl as a rookie with Philadelphia in 2014. He was solid for Miami in 2017. But after signing a four-year contract last March, his first season in Chicago didn’t go the way he envisioned.Parkey was 23 of 30 on field goals in the regular season and 3 of 4 in the wild-card game. He made 42 of 45 extra points. But he hit uprights on six of his misses.Parkey nailed them four times while missing two field goals and two extra points in a victory over Detroit at Soldier Field. He also hit one while missing a PAT in the regular-season finale at Minnesota.On Sunday, Parkey’s 43-yard attempt in the closing seconds hit halfway up the upright and ricocheted off the crossbar before harmlessly falling to the ground. The NFL changed the miss Monday to a block for Philadelphia’s Treyvon Hester, who touched the ball. That’s little consolation for the Bears.“To make a joke of it, hitting the upright, it takes some accuracy,” cornerback Prince Amukamara said. “He’s been hitting the upright. We know he wants to make it.”Amukamara insisted there was plenty of blame to go around for the loss, such as having 10 players on the field when Dallas Goedert caught a 10-yard touchdown in the third quarter.All-Pro safety Eddie Jackson (right ankle) was active but did not play. Tight end Trey Burton was inactive against his former team after being added late to the team’s injury report because of a groin problem.He said he felt some tightness Friday. He didn’t think much of it until Saturday Will Harris Jersey , when his groin was “completely locked.”“I let my team down. I hate it,” he said.Burton has acknowledged his battles with anxiety. But he insisted he was in a “really good spot mentally going into this game.”The Bears could also be in the market for a defensive coordinator if Vic Fangio gets a head coaching job.In four seasons, he has helped transform a defense that ranked among the worst in franchise history. Chicago led the NFL in rushing defense, takeaways (36) and interceptions (27) while tying for third in sacks (50). And the 60-year-old Fangio is in the running for the opening in Denver.Amos could also be on the move, with an expiring contract. So does cornerback Bryce Callahan, who broke his left foot against the Rams on Dec. 9 and missed the rest of the season.Long was looking forward to an offseason with “no knives.” The three-time Pro Bowl lineman missed eight games this season because of a foot injury before returning at Minnesota. He has also had shoulder, elbow, neck and ankle surgeries in recent years.“I get to maybe take a vacation, which would be sweet,” Long said. “That would be really cool.”
