Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will be in an open competition with Jimmy Clausen, according to new head coach John Fox.
Insight: Cutler should be able to beat out Clause for the starting role, but obviously there are no guarantees. Whoever wins the job, still has a few weapons at his disposal despite the loss of Brandon Marshall. Alshon Jeffery is a rising star, Marquess Wilson is talented and he can always throw the ball to Matt Forte, the best receiving back in football.
Description: Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal left Wednesday\'s game with an ankle injury and is questionable for Friday night versus Charlotte.
Insight: The team said it didn\'t seem too bad after the game and he didn\'t have his foot in a walking boot or on crutches, so perhaps there is a chance he returns, but he\'s likely to be a game-time decision at best.
Description: Pittsburgh outfielder Jose Tabata was sent to the minors.
Insight: Once a rising star in the organization, he no longer appears to be in the long-term plans. The Pirates will likely use Sean Rodriguez and Corey Hart to back up the starting outfield trio of Andrew McCutchen, Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco.
