  • Bears' Nsimba Webster: Likely on roster bubble

    Webster's shortcoming with catch radius has been obvious during training camp, Gene Chamberlain of SI.com reports.

    Although Webster has made a number of catches in practice, when he catches the ball, he's rarely had a chance to flash the speed that makes him a viable return man. Based on camp reports, it would appear his best chance to make the team would be on special teams. In his three-year career, he's played 360 snaps on special teams, compared to just nine offensive snaps.
