Updating a previous report, the Chicago bears are looking to add a third quarterback after the team lost QB Michael Blanchard (hand) with a broken non-throwing hand. "I'm not sure about the time that he'll be out, but we're sitting here with two quarterbacks going into next week," Bears coach Marc Trestman said. "Certainly that's something that we're gonna have to repair fairly quickly to get a third quarterback on the roster."
Earlier in the summer, the team worked out QBs JaMarcus Russell (Raiders), Trent Edwards (Eagles) and Jordan Palmer (Jaguars). All three could be options for the Bears this week.

Free-agent QB JaMarcus Russell (Raiders) looked good during his workout for the Chicago Bears Friday, June 7, but the team is unlikely to sign him to a deal. A league source said Russell showed a "big arm" and a "good positive demeanor" but also showed a bit of rust with timing and accuracy of his throws. The Bears already have three quarterbacks on roster in QBs Jay Cutler, Josh McCown and Matt Blanchard.
Fantasy Tip: Russell has worked himself back into good shape, but that alone doesn't mean a team will give him a chance. He won't be a fantasy option this year even if he signs with an organization.
