Costner Shows Up at Practice; Jauron Says Media Coverage Fair


McDill, Kent, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Byline: Kent McDill Daily Herald Sports Writer

Something exciting actually happened at Bears practice Friday.

Kevin Costner showed up.

The actor-director is in Chicago filming a movie, and he stopped by to watch the Bears work out in preparation of Sunday's game with the Indianapolis Colts.

Jauron said he reads as much of the team's coverage as he can to stay apprised of outside opinions.

He's back: Center Olin Kreutz has completed his return from the sore big left toe that has bothered him this week. His sore ankle that kept him out of four games is also repaired. He will start against the Colts on Sunday.

Unspoken word: Jauron offered a lesson in journalism Friday, defending his position on anonymous quotes. …
