Chicago’s receiving corps has taken a major hit.
Bears wide receiver Cameron Meredith suffered a gruesome left leg injury in Sunday’s preseason matchup against the Titans and will not return to the game.
The team believes Meredith has a torn ACL, Fox Sports’ Pam Oliver reported from the game.
Meredith endured a hard hit after a 16-yard reception and was carted off the field during the first quarter.
Colin Kaepernick said comments he made about Fidel Castro, perceived as support for the controversial late Cuban president, were taken “completely out of context” in the lead-up to Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
Boos rained down on the San Francisco 49ers quarterback during pre-game introductions at Hard Rock Stadium, a common occurrence at road games in the aftermath of season-long national anthem protests. Afterward, Kaepernick was asked to clear the air about a tense exchange with a reporter Wednesday in which he spoke favorably of some Cuban policies under Castro’s communist regime.
“What I said was I agree with the investment into education,” he told reporters after a 31-24 loss to the Dolphins. “I also agree with the investment in free universal healthcare, as well as his involvement in helping to end apartheid in South Africa. I would hope that everybody agrees those things are good things.
“Trying to push the false narrative that I was a supporter of the oppressive things that he did is just not true.”
