Draft Scout Tony Fiammetta News
09/25/14 - FB Tony Fiammetta, who has a hamstring injury, was cut again this week with an injury settlement. He was cut two weeks ago, and brought back when it appeared he healed enough to play, but aggravated the injury against the Jets Monday. The same scenario likely will happen again in a few weeks. The injury has been an issue since preseason.
Without Fiammetta, the Bears have no fullback on the roster.
"He was the only guy we had," quarterback Jay Cutler said. "He was hurt early on so we didn't get to use him as much. We're kind of developing more into a nickel team anyway. It's good to always have one in there just for some of the stuff we had in play. I think with some of the guys we have, they're versatile enough to fill that role: Dante (Rosario), we can put Marty (Martellus Bennett) back there. So we've got some guys that can kind of fill it and that's the direction that we're going to have to go."
09/24/14 - FB Tony Fiammetta was listed as unable to practice Wednesday due to the hamstring injury he aggravated Monday night.
09/15/14 - FB Tony Fiammetta was released prior to Sunday's game. He has been out since preseason with a hamstring injury. he was re-signed Monday when CB Charles Tillman was placed on injured reserve.
09/11/14 - FB Tony Fiammetta, who missed the opener due to a hamstring pull, remains out of practice. His absence as a blocker was a possible factor when the Bears decided to run just seven times in the first half last week and also went to misdirection with a bootleg on a key third-and-one play.
09/04/14 - FB Tony Fiammetta (hamstring) practiced Thursday on a limited basis.
