Offense
--QB Matt Leinart: Kate Brandt, of AZCardinals.com, reports Arizona Cardinals QB Matt Leinart (shoulder) announced he would be ready to participate in the teams minicamps this spring despite a shoulder injury suffered during Week 16 last season. Leinart later discussed his progress regarding the injury. It is getting better, Leinart said. I am still limited in what I can do right now, but it has been about a month and they said four to six weeks, anywhere in there. I felt the big difference the last couple of weeks, getting better, and now it is that last lingering effect that I have had since it happened.

Chicago Bears
Current Updates
Defense
--DL Mark Anderson: Brian Hanley, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports Chicago Bears rookie DE Mark Anderson was highly productive this season, tallying a club rookie record of 12 sacks in 2006. The talented first-year player said his plummet to the fifth-round of the last years draft was a chief motivating factor. ''I was happy with where I got drafted,'' Anderson said. ''I was just mad at which round I went in. When I found out I was drafted by Chicago, I knew we had a pretty good chance [of getting to the Super Bowl]. I had high expectations.'' Anderson credits some of his early success to fellow defensive lineman Tommie Harris. ''Tommie Harris, he came and took me under his shoulder,'' Anderson said of the Bears' injured tackle. ''He was probably the first person to help me out. We used to watch film together and work out.

--LB Darrell McClover: Gene Chamberlain, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports the Chicago Bears have been very pleased with the performance of LB Darrell McClover, who was signed during the season as a special teams contributor and replacement for oft-injured LB Leon Joe (hamstring). ''He was a great pickup,'' special teams coach Dave Toub said. ''We played him that first game as soon as we got him. He was a little rusty, to be honest with you. Then we went back with Leon (Joe). Then he got hurt again. So that enabled Darrell to get back in there, and he has really come on and helped solidify things on kickoffs.'' McClover, who was originally drafted by the New York Jets in 2005, led or tied for the team lead in special-teams tackles three times in the seven games he played. He also helped in the victory against the Jets by pointing out a change in their personnel, which made the Bears wary of an onside kick on the kickoff to start the second half.
