The Chicago Bears have placed veteran pass-rusher Willie Young on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.
The Bears said Young suffered a triceps injury in Week 4 against Green Bay, but he was listed as having limited participation in practice last Thursday. Young, who subsequently missed the next two days of practice and was listed as doubtful, was inactive for Monday’s 20-17 loss to Minnesota.

There was a secondary benefit for league executives — they no longer are obligated to publicly disclose their salaries. The league office in New York was required to disclose its filings because it was classified as a non-profit organization, which it no longer is.

Elite Kids Jack Ham Jersey Beckham, as you’ve surely heard, is in the middle of one of the league’s higher-profile-contract conundrums. He posted historic levels of wide receiver production in his first three seasons, but he’s prevented from maximizing his market value for at least two more years because of the way the rookie-contract system is set up. He’s making $1.839 million this year, and the Giants hold a team option on him for $8.459 million for 2018. That option is guaranteed against injury, which is to Beckham’s current benefit but prior to the injury functioned only as a drag on his desire for a big, long-term deal. The Giants had no reason to engage him in negotiations until next offseason at the earliest, and his season-ending injury underlines one of the major reasons why.
