Bears turn receivers to blockers to accent running attack

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Wide receivers are beginning to take on more of a role as blockers than pass catchers for the Chicago Bears.

For the Bears, it's a case of making do with what they have.

In Sunday's 23-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike Glennon targeted wide receivers only four times in his 21 attempts and completed one 9-yard pass to Deion Thompson.
