PRO FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NFL : Worley Put on Non-Football Injury List

October 26, 1994|Associated Press

Chicago Bear running back Tim Worley, who missed a team flight over the weekend and is said by the team to be tending to personal matters, was placed on the reserve non-football injury list.

His roster spot was filled by Kenny Shedd from the New York Jets' practice squad.

Worley, a two-time offender of the league's substance-abuse policy, missed Saturday's team flight to Detroit. The Bears lost, 21-16, to the Lions on Sunday.

Neither the Bears nor Worley's wife, Becky, knew where Worley was until Sunday. He finally showed at home that afternoon and met with Bears Coach Dave Wannstedt on Monday. He has since remained unavailable for comment.

Quarterback Brett Favre, forced out of last Thursday's game against Minnesota with a muscle tear in his side, said that he expects to play against Chicago on Monday night.

He took part in only part of Tuesday's light workout.

Guard Guy McIntyre also expects to play against the Bears, which would be only his second appearance this season.

The five-time Pro Bowl selection has been sidelined the past six games because of a blood clot and the medication he was taking to treat it.

Offensive tackle Mike Kenn underwent his second magnetic resonance imaging exam in two days for a back problem that could cut short his 17th and final season with the Atlanta Falcons. Kenn, 38, underwent an MRI exam Monday in a bid to find the problem, believed to be protruding disks.
