Not good for the Bears? They just regained cap space for free essentially. He wasn't going to be playing while on IR anyway. How could being gifted $2.2M in cap space not be a good thing for them?

Long term outlook.

If he came back next season for Chicago and is caught again for PEDs he'd be suspended the entire season.

That being said, they could just cut him after this season and save a pretty penny in doing so.

do suspensions count if you are on IR, or does he need to come off of IR and then serve 10 games?

Nope, don't have to come of IR first. Suspension can be served while on IR. Benefit for the Bears is they don't have to pay the guy during suspension. This helps a team's cap just like it does if an active player is suspended.

Bears kicker Connor Barth missed a game-tying field goal at the end of Sunday’s loss to the Lions, and that will be the last field goal he attempts in Chicago.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that Barth is out and will be replaced by Cairo Santos.

According to multiple reports, the Bears have fired coach John Fox. Fox was 14-34 in three seasons with the Bears, and his preference for veterans wasn’t and isn’t a good mix for building around a young quarterback such as Mitchell Trubisky.

The 62-year-old Fox didn’t have nearly the success in Chicago that he did in Carolina (73-71) or Denver (46-18), as he went to Super Bowls in both those stops.
