Knox eyeing return to Bears after injury
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP)
Knox said Wednesday that he hopes to be ready for the opener even though he realizes he could miss a big chunk of the season after suffering a back injury on a horrific hit against Seattle in December.
He had just caught a pass when Seattle's Kam Chancellor poked the ball out of his hands. As Knox made a diving attempt to retrieve it, he got bent backward on a hit by Anthony Hargrove, leaving him with an injury that required surgery to stabilize a vertebra in his back.
He says he is lifting weights on machines and jogging. He says he is in no hurry.
