Bear Report Audio: DT Jimmy Kennedy

One of the newest Chicago Bears, DT Jimmy Kennedy, has some strong words for any so-called expert who dares to label him a first-round bust. Kennedy spent some time Friday with Bear Report before practice in the locker room at Halas Hall, and subscribers can listen to that exclusive audio feature right here.

John Crist: You've been out of the NFL since September, and now your first assignment with the Bears will be on Monday Night Football against the No. 1 rushing team in the league. How much of a challenge will that be for you, and what have you seen on film from Chester Taylor and Adrian Peterson?

Jimmy Kennedy: Those guys are solid running backs. Adrian Peterson has put up some great numbers so far, and Chester is a great spark. He was doing it even before Adrian got there, so it's gonna be a challenge. We're gonna have our hands full, and I'm gonna just go out there if I get a shot to play and do everything in my [power] to help this team win.
