Bears place WR Knox on PUP list
BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears have put receiver Johnny Knox on the physically unable to perform list.
The move announced Wednesday was not a surprise, since general manager Phil Emery had said it might happen. Knox suffered a gruesome back injury against Seattle last season and needed surgery to stabilize a vertebra. Knox has 133 receptions for 2,214 yards in three seasons and has been a contributor on special teams with 55 kickoff returns for 1,506 yards.
The Bears start practicing on Thursday.
