Bears WR Johnny Knox Fighting To Get Back On The Field
Injured Bears WR Johnny Knox admitted he’s “not quite there physically,” and he’ll be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason but he’s confident he’ll return to action in 2013, and he wants to do so in a Bears uniform.
“I would love to come back here,” Knox said. “The Bears gave me my first chance, my first opportunity, and I would love to remain here.”
Knox shined in 2010 and 2011, until Dec. 18, 2011, when he was drilled in the back by Seattle Seahawks defensive end Anthony Hargrove at Soldier Field.
He enters the final year of his current deal, set to make $1.85 million with a cap number of $2.94 million but if they trade or release him, the Bears would save about $2 million.
Bennett also has a healthy contract after signing a five-year, $18.5 million deal last December but he’s already collected half of that, and his base salary for 2013 is $2.25 million.
For Knox, though, the focus is just getting healthy.
“I feel good, man,” Knox said. “That’s the ultimate goal, for me to get back on the field next season.
“I got short-term goals, and I’m just trying to do better than I did last week. I still got some work to do.”

Would have liked to see him on the field again but my fear he was too 'slight' proved true.
I'd say stay healthy by changing jobs, Johnny. Nothing's worth a wheel chair.
