Bears’ Amos, Eagles’ Bennett fined for roughness in playoffs
NEW YORK (AP) — Chicago safety Adrian Amos has been fined $26,739 by the NFL for his unnecessary roughness penalty in the Bears' playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Amos hit tight end Zach Ertz, who was deemed a defenseless receiver, in the third quarter of Philadelphia's 16-15 win last Sunday. It came on a third-down play that extended the drive that gave the Eagles a 10-6 lead on Dallas Goedert's 10-yard touchdown catch.
Bears come to grips with cruel end to breakthrough season
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," 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.
Barkley 46 yards shy of rushing for 1,000 yards as rookie
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — There seems to be no limit to Saquon Barkley's upside.
Just when it seems the New York Giants' rookie running back has shown just about everything he can do on the football field, the second pick overall in the NFL draft finds another way to impress people.
Take a look at Sunday's' 30-27 overtime win over the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears.
Bears back coach Matt Nagy’s decision to rest starters.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears first-year coach Matt Nagy is showing he can take the heat, and it has nothing to do with sultry late August weather at Monday's practice.
Nagy made a controversial call Saturday to sit starters during a preseason game normally used as an opening-day dress rehearsal, and second-guessers have been attacking since the end of a 27-20 Bears victory over Kansas City.

Takeaways starting to pile up for Bears’ defense
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears were trying to rally in the closing minutes at New Orleans last week. That's when safety Adrian Amos made his move.
He went straight for the ball as other defenders closed in for the tackle and ripped it out of running back Mark Ingram's hands after he took the handoff at the Chicago 26. Amos made the recovery, giving the Bears a chance to take the lead trailing by five.
Bears hoping interceptions become contagious after big win
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Before Sunday, interceptions had been harder to come by this season for the Chicago Bears than victories.
Now 2-4, the Bears hope they can climb among the NFC North leaders by starting a trend after producing two interceptions and three turnovers overall in Sunday's 27-24 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
"When we're losing, we need to find more turnovers," safety Adrian Amos said Monday at Halas Hall. "I feel like that's got to be a force for us moving forward.
Baltimore Ravens, unfamiliar opponent for most Chicago Bears, represent homecoming for a few
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Most Chicago Bears players don’t have much first-hand knowledge about the Baltimore Ravens, Sunday’s opponent. But Baltimore is pretty close to the hearts of a few players.
Pernell McPhee was a Raven the first four years of his career. Safety Adrian Amos and cornerback Kyle Fuller both grew up in Baltimore. And running back Taquan Mizzell, who arrived to the Bears shortly before the start of the season, was in training camp with the Ravens.
Chicago Bears lose safety Quintin Demps to broken arm
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears safety Quintin Demps suffered a broken arm in the 23-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and will be out an indefinite period of time.
Demps came out in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win and was replaced by former starter Adrian Amos. A 10-year veteran, Demps was acquired from Houston after the Bears struggled to defend against the pass and made a franchise record-low eight interceptions each of the last two seasons.

Adrian Amos aims to help Chicago Bears’ secondary improve on takeaways in 2017
LAKE FOREST — Adrian Amos isn’t putting much stock, at least publicly, into playing alongside Quintin Demps at safety during Bears OTAs.
“I just come out and whatever my coaches tell me to do, I do,” he said following Tuesday’s practice. “It’s been the same way my whole life. Come in, play ball, compete, expect to start. I didn’t think of it in any type of way.”
