Grossman to suit up for the Bears

LAKE FOREST, Ill., Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Chicago quarterback Rex Grossman will be in uniform when the Bears play at Tampa Bay on Sunday.

The hard-luck Grossman, a third-year pro out of Florida, missed the final 13 games of 2004 because of a torn right knee ligament and has been sidelined this year since breaking his left ankle Aug. 12 in a pre-season contest in St. Louis. He has missed 23 straight regular season games.

"Just to suit up again will be a milestone for me," Grossman said on the Bears' Web site. "It's a goal that I set for myself to be back for this game and I'm achieving that goal. Just to get back out there with the guys and to play football again is fun. It feels good to be healthy again and come back from this injury. I feel like I can do everything, (but) I'm not as quick."

To make room, Chicago waived third-string quarterback Kurt Kittner.
