JACKSONVILLE https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Khalil-Mack-Jersey , Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars might have lost their No. 1 receiver for the season.Marqise Lee, who led the team in receptions in 2017, injured his left knee in a 17-6 victory against Atlanta in the preseason Saturday night and could be out for the year.Lee was carted off the field in the first quarter after Falcons cornerback Damontae Kazee twisted his leg making a tackle. Lee fumbled on the play, but it was overturned because Kazee was flagged for tackling with his helmet.Teammates and coaches offered well-wishes to Lee as he left the field. Nonetheless, it was the kind of preseason injury that leaves players, coaches and fans shaking their heads.It also reaffirmed Falcons coach Dan Quinn’s decision to rest two of his biggest offensive stars, receiver Julio Jones and running back Devonta Freeman.Lee had 56 catches for 702 yards and three touchdowns last season. He signed a four-year, $34 million contract in March that included $16.5 million guaranteed.A second-round draft pick from USC in 2014, Lee has 171 catches for 2,166 yards and eight touchdowns. He missed games because of various injuries in three of his four seasons.If Lee misses extended time in 2018, the Jaguars would rely on second-year pros Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook, one-year rental Donte Moncrief, and rookie DJ Chark to pick up the slack.BEARS 27, CHIEFS 20CHICAGO (AP) — Bears coach Matt Nagy decided to rest starters for the next-to-last preseason game rather than use it as the customary regular-season tuneup.And the backups proved that they’re also ready for the regular season as Chase Daniel directed touchdown drives on the first three possessions.The Bears played in the Hall of Fame Game and have been practicing since July 20, and Nagy liked what he’d seen from the starters in practices. So he decided Friday to keep starters out of what normally would be a dress rehearsal for the regular-season opener at Green Bay.Daniel replaced Mitchell Trubisky against his mentor, Andy Reid, and the Chiefs, the team Nagy last year served as the offensive coordinator.Playing against both the Chiefs’ starting defense and then the backups, Daniel led the Bears to a 24-10 halftime lead. Daniel, a Chiefs backup quarterback from 2013-15 https://www.thebearsfanshop.com , finished 15 of 18 for 198 yards and two touchdowns. The first two Bears touchdown drives came against Kansas City’s starting defense, minus injured safety Eric Berry and four other injured players.RAMS 21, TEXANS 20LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rookie John Kelly rushed for 64 yards and two touchdowns, and the briefly debuted their new defensive stars.Although the Rams rested 10 presumptive offensive starters for the third straight preseason game, the Los Angeles defense’s three big offseason acquisitions played at the Coliseum. Ndamukong Suh and cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib got some action early in the first quarter before sitting.J.J. Watt also started and made a tackle in his first on-field action since breaking his leg in the Texans‘ fifth game last season. The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year didn’t get to see the current holder of the award, Aaron Donald, who is deep in his second consecutive contract holdout from the Rams.Alfred Blue rushed for an early score for Houston, and Braxton Miller caught a TD pass from Brandon Weeden, who went 10 of 17 for 108 yards with an interception after Deshaun Watson’s brief action. Quan Bray caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Joe Webb with 5:54 to play for the Texans, but Ejuan Price sacked Webb on the ensuing 2-point conversion attempt.Nick Rose then missed a 57-yard field goal at the gun.STEELERS 16, TITANS 6PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger made the most of his brief preseason cameo, throwing for 114 yards and a touchdown.New Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner didn’t let Roethlisberger’s lone scheduled exhibition appearance ahead of the Sept. 9 season opener at Cleveland go to waste. Roethlisberger completed 11 of 18 passes during his three drives, including a 32-yard rainbow to Justin Hunter for a score late in the first quarter.Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, meanwhile, struggled against Pittsburgh’s starting defense. Mariota completed 5 of 8 passes for 43 yards while playing most of the first half. He missed a wide-open Corey Davis for what would have been a long touchdown on Tennessee’s opening drive and his afternoon ended late in the second quarter when Steelers rookie safety Terrell Edmunds picked off a floater intended for Taywan Taylor.The Titans didn’t do much in the run game to take any of the pressure off Mariota. Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis combined for 23 yards rushing on eight carries. Tennessee’s lone touchdown came on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Blaine Gabbert to tight end Anthony Firkser in the fourth quarter.COLTS 23, 49ERS 17INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck threw a touchdown pass on what will probably be his last preseason drive, and Christine Michael scored on a 1-yard plunge late in the third quarter.Luck looked much sharper than he did in Monday night’s loss to Baltimore. He wound up 8 of 10 with 90 yards and produced the only TD in the first half. He also had four carries for 27 yards before leaving midway through the second quarter.Otherwise, it was a struggle for the Colts. They had trouble establishing the run — and stopping the run, too.Alfred Morris carried 13 times for 71 yards in the first half as San Francisco piled up 99 yards on the ground. Morris finished with 17 carries for 84 yards.Still, the Colts managed to keep the 49ers out of the end zone until late in the fourth quarter and nearly picked off Jimmy Garoppolo on back-to-back plays near the goal line late in the first half. Garoppolo was 9 of 19 with 135 yards before giving way to C.J. Beathard midway through the third quarter.RAVENS 27 Chicago Bears Customized Jerseys , DOLPHINS 10MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — First-round pick Lamar Jackson led touchdown possessions of 84, 62 and 73 yards against mostly deep reserves.Jackson entered the game at the start of the second half and had his best performance yet for the Ravens. He went 7 for 10 for 98 yards and a touchdown, and ran for 39 yards on three carries, including a 19-yard scoring run.Kenyan Drake sparked one scoring drive with a 30-yard run and another with a 36-yard reception for the Dolphins, whose starters reached the end zone for the first time this preseason.Ryan Tannehill fumbled twice early, and the Dolphins drew boos from the small crowd when they went three-and-out on the first series. But the offense began to click in the second quarter against a mix of Ravens starters and reserves, and Tannehill finished 11 of 16 for 115 yards.Danny Amendola made a nifty cutback to juke past two defensive backs and score on a 16-yard pass from Tannehill. It was the first touchdown by Miami’s starters during the preseason in 10 possessions.On the next series, Tannehill hit Drake deep for a big gain to set up a field goal, and the Dolphins led 10-3 at halftime before both teams emptied their benches.SAINTS 36, CHARGERS 7CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Alvin Kamara ran for a 2-yard touchdown, and New Orleans capped a productive week in Southern California with a preseason win over Los Angeles.Saints quarterback Drew Brees was 7 of 9 for 59 yards with an interception in three series, while Philip Rivers was 5 of 7 for 29 yards in a brief tuneup appearance for the Chargers.New Orleans did not get its initial first down until late in the first quarter when third-string quarterback and special teams contributor Taysom Hill moved the chains by running a direct snap on a fake punt around the left side. That helped set up Kamara’s short touchdown plunge seven plays later. The Saints took an 8-7 lead on a 2-point pass from Brees to Michael Thomas, the last throw Brees would make before giving way to Tom Savage.Wil Lutz kicked field goals of 25 and 35 yards in the final two minutes of the first half, and Hill scrambled for an 11-yard touchdown run and a 2-point conversion on a keeper late in the third quarter. Cornerback Marcus Williams added a 59-yard interception return for a touchdown, which came seven plays after a pass interference penalty against Williams negated a ricochet TD return by linebacker Craig Robertson. LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP)Losing is wearing on the Chicago Bears, coach John Fox and his staff. The heat on Fox and the Bears coaching staff has increased with each defeat in a five-game losing streak, although the Bears coach said Monday he hasn’t discussed his job status with team ownership or management. ”I haven’t heard anything one way or the other Chicago Bears T-Shirts ,” Fox said. ”I wouldn’t ask. That’s more how I see it. ”I’m doing everything in our power to put the best product on the field day to day, week to week. I control what I can control and that’s what I can control.” Fox’s contract has one year left after this season. Fox said there has been nothing negative in his dealings with Bears general manager Ryan Pace. ”It’s been very positive from the standpoint of a working relationship, like everybody, even you (media) to some degree,” Fox said. ”It’s frustrating, no doubt. That can’t deter you. You just keep rolling, and like I’ve said, we’ve got four games, the final quarter of our season. As soon as today’s over and we’re done talking about yesterday, we’re on to Cincinnati.” In Sunday’s 15-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers (2-10), the Bears offense misfired for the second straight game as they fell to 3-9. With the defeat, Fox (12-32) has the worst winning percentage as a coach in Bears history at .272. Abe Gibron had a .274 winning percentage (11-30-1) from 1972-74. The offense has gained only 140 yards and 147 yards in the past two games with Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback. And the offense managed only seven points Sunday against San Francisco. The other score came on special teams. Fox said he hasn’t considered changing offensive coordinators. ”That’s not been kind of productive for me in the past, No,” he said. Playing Trubisky after starter Mike Glennon was unproductive has led to problems as well as injuries to receivers. ”I’d like to have been more productive offensively, but the reality is we’re kind of where we are,” Fox said. ”(We’re) playing a lot of young players, in particularly at the quarterback position. I’ve seen improvement in him. And that’s kind of what I look for is are we getting better.” Trubisky went 12 for 15 for only 102 yards Sunday. ”I thought Mitch played arguably his best game,” Fox said. ”There were a couple decisions I think he’d like to have back, not that they were huge errors. ”We did not turn the ball over, we were plus-1 in the turnover ratio https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/hats , we had a 61-yard punt return for a touchdown. If you’d have told me that before the game, I probably wouldn’t have envisioned any way we’d lose that game.” Players are left searching for meaning in their final four games, including three on the road. ”I think it’s our job as the older guys to keep everybody’s spirits lifted up, and make sure everyone has the same approach, same attitude to work,” cornerback Prince Amukamara said. ”Bottom line is, we need to find a way to finish these close games. We’re still searching.” The Bears have lost six games by eight points or fewer, but losing at home to San Francisco is rough even for a 3-9 team. ”Not embarrassing,” Amukamara said.”I would just say we’re disappointed. I think there are games in the NFL where you look and go, `OK, we should win this game; we’re pretty confident.’ To be forward and blunt, this (49ers game) was one of those games. I would say we just disappointed ourselves.” The Bears’ defense has been riddled with injuries, and lost outside linebacker Pernell McPhee on Sunday to a shoulder injury. They already had lost their top two pass rushing linebackers to injuries – Willie Young (triceps) and Leonard Floyd (knee). Guard Kyle Long aggravated a shoulder injury and Fox said one option being considered is putting him on season-ending injured reserve. New kicker Cairo Santos aggravated a groin injury and on Monday the Bears placed him on injured reserve and signed Mike Nugent as a replacement. Nugent started his NFL career in 2005 and has kicked for five teams, including the Bengals from 2010-2016. ”You know, I think losing some guys has had a little bit of an effect on that, but that’s not an excuse, just reality,” Fox said of losing. ”You know other than Philadelphia I think we’ve played competitive games and we just keep coming up short. ”I understand the angst and you know the frustration because we feel it.” —
