Kevin Ware's tibia fracture during Sunday's Louisville-Duke game was a gruesome injury and a sad one. Though his teammates rallied around him and defeated the Blue Devils to earn a trip to the Final Four, Ware will miss the rest of his sophomore season because of the compound fracture. As jeopardizing and serious as the injury looked, Ware was reportedly moving around on crutches already today. That's not unusual, said Dr. Mark Hutchinson, an orthopedic surgeon and head team physician at UIC Hospital.

Derrick Rose hasn't set foot on the hardwood since he tore his ACL in April, but he's certainly held court in 2012 pop culture. No. 1 draft pick. Rookie of the year. The first Bulls All-Star since Michael Jordan. The league's youngest-ever MVP. Rose already had those bullet points on his resume heading into last season. As he works toward his return to the court, he has made waves off of it, and Chicago can't get enough of the 24-year-old. As if Rose wasn't Chicago enough - he grew up in Englewood and played ball at Simeon Career Academy in Chatham - he entrenched himself further in the city this...

It's time for a Bears edition of "would you rather?" starring Brian Urlacher. The question: Would you rather have Lance Louis' knee injury or Devin Hester's head injury? Let's compare. Louis tore his ACL during Sunday's win over Minnesota when he was upended on a vicious block during an interception return. Louis will miss the rest of the season. Hester sustained a concussion in the first half and was pulled for the rest of the game. Based on the Bears' handling of concussions this season, it is reasonable to assume Hester will miss Sunday's...

The number of Bears who have missed entire games this season gets scarier each week. Jay Cutler, Shea McClellin and Earl Bennett are on that list, and they may at least hope to play next week.

Wanna know what it's like to be Derrick Rose right about now? Northwestern running back Mike Trumpy knows better than just about anyone. "Oh man, it sucks," the redshirt junior said, his voice growing weary. Chicago Fire defender Dan Gargan knows too. "It's a daily, minute-to-minute, hour-to-hour, week-to-week thing that doesn't go away until you're far down the road and you're like 'I feel great,' " Gargan said. They're not talking about owning a condo in Trump Tower or earning tens of millions of dollars a year, but rather the grueling rehab process the...
