Lance Briggs still waiting to be cleared

Bears linebacker Lance Briggs had his fractured shoulder evaluated on Tuesday, but unfortunately hasn’t been cleared to get back on the field yet, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Lance Briggs’ fractured left shoulder was evaluated by team doctors Tuesday, but he wasn’t cleared to play, the linebacker told the Sun-Times.

“I have to be able to defend myself on the football field,” he said. “If I can’t do that, then they won’t clear me.”

Briggs won’t rule out playing his week, since he’s supposed to be evaluated in a couple of days.
