ATLANTA (AP) — Darius Leonard, the AP's Defensive Rookie of the Year, and Tarik Cohen have been honored by the Black College Football Hall of Fame as their top pro players for 2018.
The award, announced Wednesday, recognizes the most outstanding professional football player from a historically black college and university. Arizona Cardinals safety Antoine Bethea was selected as the inaugural recipient in 2017.
CHICAGO (AP) — Cody Parkey sat by his locker with a glazed look, struggling to explain how he did it again.
The Chicago Bears' embattled kicker somehow managed to nail yet another upright and hit the crossbar while missing a 43-yard field goal in the closing seconds of a 16-15 wild-card loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants safety and leading tackler Landon Collins is going to miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.
The Giants said Wednesday that Collins has a partially torn labrum and will need surgery. The team had said earlier Collins would not play Sunday in Washington.
The expected recovery time for this type of injury can be anywhere from four to six months.
Collins was not in the locker room before the practice to comment.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — In the week leading up to their game against the Bears, the New York Giants insisted the toughest thing about playing against Chicago halfback Tarik Cohen was finding him.
The 5-foot-6, lightning quick Cohen must have been invisible to the Giants on Sunday.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger cut off the question mid-sentence. The quicker to dismiss it, the better.
No, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback stressed, there are no issues about running back James Conner's ability to hold onto the ball even after Conner's fumble late in the third quarter on Sunday in Denver swung momentum to the Broncos in what became a 24-17 loss that ended Pittsburgh's six-game winning streak.
DETROIT (AP) — Chase Daniel outplayed Matthew Stafford, proving an NFL journeyman can beat one of the highest-paid players in the league.
Daniel threw a career-high two touchdowns to keep the Chicago Bears rolling with a 23-16 win over the Detroit Lions on Thursday, filling in very well for injured quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
Guaranteed prize pool tournaments on FanDuel and DraftKings have become a strategic focus for daily fantasy players at the same time the NFL becomes more of a passing league.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Coach Matt Nagy insisted Jordan Howard remains a big part of Chicago's offense and the star running back was adamant he wasn't frustrated despite a limited role in the most recent victory.
"This is not going to be an offense where it's just one person and it goes through one person," Nagy said Monday. "I don't necessarily believe in that. It's great when you have everybody fulfilling different roles and it's hard for the defense when you do that."

We have some bad news.
It happened months ago, but there is a chance you were not paying attention when the Poinsettia Bowl passed away back in January. If you need to sit down or take a moment to let that settle in, it's OK. Somehow, college football fans will have to make do with only 39 FBS-level bowl games — one fewer than a year ago.
The good news is that is still a lot of bowls and you should watch every one.
CHICAGO (AP) — Matt Prater booted the go-ahead field goal through the gusting wind right down the middle with enough room to clear the crossbar.
He also gained some revenge against a coach who cut him.
Prater kicked a 52-yard field goal with 1:35 remaining, Matthew Stafford threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns and the Detroit Lions held on to beat the Chicago Bears 27-24 on Sunday.
BALTIMORE (AP) — There may come a time this season when the Chicago Bears will have to rely upon the passing of Mitchell Trubisky to win.
Until then, coach John Fox is quite content to ride Jordan Howard and the running game for as long as necessary.
BALTIMORE (AP) — It seemed like a perfect scenario for the Baltimore Ravens defense. Facing a rookie quarterback still adjusting to the NFL, all Baltimore had to do was stop the run to win.
The Ravens knew what was coming from Chicago, and they were powerless to stop it. Jordan Howard ran for 167 yards, and the Bears won in overtime 27-24 Sunday.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen had some words of advice for fellow rookie Mitchell Trubisky, who makes his first NFL start Monday against the Minnesota Vikings.
"I told him I don't feel like he needs to be a superhero," Cohen said. "We're in this together as a team and we're going to be supporting."
The trouble is, the Bears haven't been very supportive overall so far when veteran Mike Glennon started at quarterback, and it's resulted in a 1-3 record.
CHICAGO (AP) — Chalk it up as another big flop for Big Ben and the Steelers. Once again, they lost to a lesser team.
Jordan Howard scored on a 19-yard run in overtime to lead the Chicago Bears to a 23-17 victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday.
CHICAGO (AP) — Jordan Howard pushed through the pain in his right shoulder to give the Bears the lift they needed.
Howard scored on a 19-yard run in overtime to lead Chicago to a 23-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) — First-round draft pick Mitchell Trubisky naturally commands attention in Bears training camp.
Yet, Trubisky is only one of several rookies to make positive impressions on coaches heading into their first preseason action against the Denver Broncos.
On almost a daily basis, tight end Adam Shaheen, running back Tarik Cohen and safety Eddie Jackson have come up with big plays. Now it's on to prove they can do it before a big crowd at Soldier Field on Thursday night.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears released veteran receiver Eddie Royal on Thursday.
Royal was limited to nine games in each of his two seasons in Chicago because of injuries after agreeing to a three-year deal in March 2015. He caught 33 passes for 369 yards this year after finishing with 37 receptions for 238 yards and a TD last season.
Royal has 408 catches for 4,357 yards and 28 touchdowns in nine seasons with Denver, San Diego and Chicago.
