LAKE FOREST, Ill. Greece World Cup Jerseys . -- By now, the Chicago Bears hoped to be past the injuries plaguing them since training camp began.Instead, with Saturdays dress rehearsal for the regular season approaching in the third preseason game against Kansas City, the Bears injury situation only seems to get worse by the day.Weve got plenty of bodies -- were at 90 players, coach John Fox said Sunday. At this point youve got plenty of guys out here.It gives us a chance to look at some other guys and give them an opportunity to catch our eye.The Bears had 20 players either injured or sitting out for rest Sunday when they returned to Halas Hall for practice, after losing 23-22 Thursday to the New England Patriots.They even found theyd lost a few more players due to in-game injuries that cropped up a day later.Starting running back Jeremy Langford wore a boot cast on an injured left foot and watched from the sideline on Saturday night during a practice held at north suburban Warren High School. The injury occurred in Thursdays game but wasnt evident until the next day.Starting right guard Kyle Long also missed practices Saturday and Sunday. Hes suffering from a shoulder injury.I think hes a great player and obviously Id rather have him out there practicing, Fox said about Long, a three-time Pro Bowl player. But our goal right now is to get ready for the opener in Houston.Langford had the boot cast off at Sundays practice, but a date for his return is uncertain.The health situation looks no better on defense, where inside linebacker Danny Trevathan missed the last two practices with a pulled hamstring and the right cornerback position has been a revolving door to the trainers room.Prior to the game against New England, starting cornerback Kyle Fuller underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.It was something that he tried to push through, Fox said. He showed great determination in doing that. It just wasnt improving.They did the scope and hopefully hell come back fast and furious.Then Fullers backup, Bryce Callahan, missed the last two practices with a pulled hamstring. Jacoby Glenn, who replaced Callahan, suffered a concussion against New England.As a result, starting left cornerback Tracy Porter has found himself on the field trying to coach young players in addition to playing.Im watching those guys, what theyre doing, if theyre having a missed assignment or having a not-so-good technique that I can help them with, Porter said.Hes trying to instill confidence in rookie fourth-round pick Deiondre Hall, and other inexperienced players whove been tried at the spot.At that position you have to have a ton of confidence, because if you dont, its like quarterbacks, they can sense that and youll have a long night, Porter said.Game notes Wide receiver Eddie Royal and running back KaDeem Carey returned to practice Saturday on a limited basis after suffering concussions. Royal had been out since July 31.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Football Greece Jerseys . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. Greece Jerseys From China .

MIAMI -- Adam Morgans epic losing streak is finally over.Morgan snapped his major league-worst streak of nine consecutive losses, Odubel Herrera scored three runs and the Philadelphia Phillies spoiled Miami slugger Giancarlo Stantons return by beating the reeling Marlins 4-3 on Tuesday night.Morgan (2-9) allowed five hits and one run in six innings. He hadnt won since May 10, going 0-9 with a 6.72 ERA in his last 15 appearances, 13 of those starts.Its good to see because he needed to make a change in his approach and pitch differently than he has in the past and hes starting to do that, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. He can get better and better.Morgan was staked to a 2-0 lead before his work even started, and was never in any serious trouble. His command wasnt great -- 85 pitches, 54 strikes -- but he didnt issue a walk and lowered his ERA from 6.21 to 5.90.Feels good. It feels good, Morgan said. Defense made some awesome plays behind me. But you know, its been the same game plan. ... Keep it down, keep it simple and we just went out and executed.Tommy Joseph and Freddy Galvis each drove in two runs for the Phillies.Ichiro Suzuki hit the first pinch-hit home run of his career, a two-run shot in the eighth for Miami. Stanton was activated from the disabled list about an hour before the game and delivered a pinch-hit single in the fifth for Miami, which lost for the 10th time in 11 games.Jose Urena (3-6) gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings for Miami, which is 11-23 since Aug. 1.I was trying to stay down in the zone, Urena said. And I did, but they found holes.Jeanmar Gomez pitched the ninth for his 35th save in 39 chances for the Phillies. It was eventful -- Maikel Franco threw a potential game-ending double-play ball into center field to give Miami runners on first and second with one out in the ninth, but Gomez got Ichiro to line out and then struck out Dee Gordon looking to end the game.With Morgans losing streak now over the distincttion of having the longest such active drought in the majors goes to San Diegos Christian Friedrich and the New York Mets Logan Verrett, both losers of eight straight decisions. Womens Greece Jerseys. Meanwhile, the jolt the Marlins got from Stantons return wasnt enough.Stanton lined a sharp single off Morgan in his return, jogging to first and being removed for a pinch-runner. The Marlins also activated first baseman Justin Bour from the 60-day DL on Tuesday, after he missed two months with an ankle injury. Bour reached on a walk in the eighth.The Marlins were still firmly in the wild card mix in late August, but time is running out.Obviously, were not in a great spot right now, at this moment, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. But again, I talk about it a lot -- things can change quickly.HERRERA LOVES MIAMIHerrera has three games in which hes scored at least three runs, and two of them have come in Marlins Park -- the other on Aug. 21, 2015. His career best for runs in a game is four, set on April 23 at Milwaukee.FOR STARTERSMorgan giving up one run extended a streak of success for Phillies starters against the Marlins in 2016. In nine of the teams last 11 games, Philadelphias starter has been charged with no more than two earned runs.OLYMPIC VIBEAshleigh Johnson -- a Miami native who was the goalie for the gold medal-winning U.S. womens water polo team at last months Rio de Janeiro Olympics -- threw out the ceremonial first pitch.TRAINERS ROOMThe Marlins had LHP Wei-Yin Chen (elbow) and RHP Bryan Morris (back surgery) throw in the simulated game to Stanton and Bour.
