Bears | B. Johnson files grievance, to be released

Thu, 21 Sep 2006 08:28:43 -0700

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports the Chicago Bears informed FB Bryan Johnson (hamstring) that he would be waived from injured reserve and the oft-injured fullback filed an injury grievance against the club. Johnson, who is still listed on the club's roster, was informed prior to Week 2 that he would be released. The club tried to get Johnson to agree to an injury settlement when they placed him on IR on Aug. 28, an effort to pay him less than the $625,000 he is under contract for in 2006.

Bears | Team offered B. Johnson an injury settlement

Tue, 29 Aug 2006 05:27:39 -0700

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports the Chicago Bears offered FB Bryan Johnson (hamstring) an injury settlement. He refused it and instead was placed on the season-ending Injured Reserve list. He had surgery on his right hamstring a week ago, a relatively new procedure designed to help him heal quicker, and the original word he got was that he would be back on the field next month. Johnson's agent, Derrick Fox, was surprised Monday morning, Aug. 28, when the Bears called and asked him to accept the injury settlement, meaning Johnson would receive less than the $625,000 he is under contract for this season. ''I wasn't going to accept a settlement,'' Fox said. ''Based on what? This is a new surgery, and we don't know exactly how it is going to heal. Why would I settle for less? I told the Bears I don't know how it's going to heal up, and neither do they. I would have never known about these people Bryan went to see if it weren't for the Bears. Now they want him to take a settlement?''

The progression's going well. Each day I'm getting better. It feels good being out there on the field playing. I'm very optimistic," said Johnson.

Bears | B. Johnson cleared to practice

Wed, 26 Jul 2006 17:07:55 -0700

Larry Mayer, of ChicagoBears.com, reports Chicago Bears FB Bryan Johnson (foot) has been cleared to practice at training camp Thursday, July 27. "I'm really excited to start playing again," Johnson said. "I'm excited to be down here. It was really frustrating not being 100 percent and able to play, but I'm going to be ready to roll this time." He spent the first seven weeks of last season on the physically unable to perform list before being activated Nov. 5. While Johnson is ready to return, he conceded that his foot will never be as good as new. "Honestly, I don't think my foot's probably going to feel 100 percent or feel normal again," he said. "So it's just something I'm going to have to deal with."

Bears | B. Johnson's foot a concern

Sat, 03 Jun 2006 06:43:03 -0700

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports there is some concern Chicago Bears FB Bryan Johnson's (foot) foot injury may linger. Johnson should be ready to go by training camp, but that's the same line that was delivered at this time last season. Johnson had surgery in December 2004 to repair a ligament problem in his right foot, and then had a procedure last summer to clear it up. Last season, he suffered a stress fracture in the foot and spent six weeks in a walking boot starting in mid-February. ''He's very confident that come July he will be ready to go in training camp,'' said Derrick Fox, Johnson's agent. ''He's healthy right now and is doing all of the lifting. He's just taking a precaution with the foot.'' Fox said a recent CAT scan revealed the crack had sealed completely.
