Bears WLB Lance Briggs (shoulder) said he expects to beat his 4-6 week timetable.
Briggs separated his shoulder against the Redskins in Week 7. "The way injuries go, the doctors said I'm supposed to be out 4-6 weeks," he said. "I feel more like I'll be out 2-3 (weeks). We'll meet somewhere in the middle." Even with their All-Pro Briggs, the Bears defense was ranked 27th in yards allowed per game and 29th in points. Aaron Rogers and Eddie Lacy are going to have a feast on Monday night.
