Thomas Jones suffers contract injury...

He's out 4-6 weeks supposedly for a hamstring he strained during a physical. This sounds awfully strange and I think it's more likely a "get me traded" play on his part. Speculation continues that the Denver Broncos are interested in trading their disgruntled WR Ashley Lelie for our Thomas Jones. Jones might be trying to take advantage of this and making problems to force a trade.

I don't see the Bears giving in on this one. Lovie wants two dependable RB's and has a lot of faith in his young WR group. Most likely Jones sits all of training camp, Benson wins the job and Jones gets limited duty all year unless Benson gets hurt. Hopefully, the distraction will be minimal and won't upset the team chemistry too much. Also hopefully Benson takes advantage of this and works his tail off with the offense and has a great year!

Big gamble to fake an injury, hope he straightens his shit out, or he may just ride the pine all year.
