LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Chase Daniel promises to be ready to step in at quarterback for Mitchell Trubisky on Thursday when the Chicago Bears play the Detroit Lions.

The Bears' backup might need to clear away some rust.

Daniel hasn't started or played extensively in an NFL game since 2014, and might start for Trubisky because of a right shoulder injury sustained in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's 25-20 Bears victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

Dolphins' Tannehill to return vs. Colts

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Ryan Tannehill was among the first players on the field Tuesday, tossing short passes to an assistant equipment manager before practice even began, trying to make up for lost time and lost games.

The Miami Dolphins plan to start Tannehill for the first time in seven weeks Sunday at Indianapolis . Coach Adam Gase said Tannehill has progressed enough in his recovery from a throwing shoulder injury to rejoin the lineup, and said the quality of his passes appears to be 100 percent.


Rams enter bye week 'wired' from MNF win

LOS ANGELES (AP) Just like everybody fortunate enough to be at the Coliseum on Monday night, Sean McVay was still buzzing when he left the building after the Los Angeles Rams' epic victory over Kansas City.

When he finally reached his suburban home, the coach wasn't ready to lose that feeling. Instead, McVay and some friends kicked off the Rams' bye week by watching highlights of Los Angeles' 54-51 win deep into the night.


Seahawks' D in flux with Wright injured

RENTON, Wash. (AP) For the second time this season the Seahawks are having to find an option at weakside linebacker with K.J. Wright is sidelined due to injury.

Wright has missed seven of Seattle's 10 games played this season due to a knee injury that surfaced during pregame warmups of the team's preseason game in Minnesota in August. Wright had surgery shortly after and missed the first six weeks of the season as setbacks in his recovery slowed his return to the field.


Broncos waive veteran CB 'Pacman' Jones

Better OL play behind Cowboys' surge

FRISCO, Texas (AP) Zack Martin can't pinpoint why the Dallas offensive line was better in consecutive road wins after a mostly rugged first half of the season.

The Cowboys right guard has a few options: time to adjust to the season-long absence of fellow Pro Bowler Travis Frederick, a steady showing from Xavier Su'a-Filo at left guard for injured rookie Connor Williams or the position coaching change to former Dallas lineman Marc Colombo.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions have signed free agent safety Don Carey and waived defensive end Eric Lee.

Improved D crucial to Colts' win streak

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts made a firm commitment to Matt Eberflus in January.

They stuck to it after the man who initially hired Eberflus to be Indy's defensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, reneged on a deal to become the next coach and they lived up to their promise after eventually hiring Frank Reich in February.
