Bear Report Audio: CB Corey Graham

With Brandon McGowan now lost for the season on injured reserve, the Chicago Bears are looking for a new nickelback. Will Corey Graham get his chance? Bear Report caught up with Graham before practice Thursday at Halas Hall, and subscribers can listen to that exclusive audio feature right here.

John Crist: Let's say it's 3rd and 21. Is there any way to justify a dime defense with this team because you've got No. 54 and No. 55? It's hard to take Brian Urlacher or Lance Briggs off the field, isn't it?

Corey Graham: I've been thinking that ever since I got drafted here. I was wondering why we don't have a dime. That's just something that most teams got. You would think that in big-time passing situations, you should have that. We don't have it, but you never know. Maybe if it was a big-time passing down and they knew they was going to throw the ball, they might say, "Corey, go in and cover the slot." It might happen. I don't foresee it happening, but I would love for it to be here.
