SANTA CLARA White Leonard Floyd Jerseys , Calif. (AP) —  Mitchell Trubisky go unanswered, and Richard Sherman wasn’t going to let the Bears retaliate against San Francisco teammate Marcell Harris without a fight.When the melee ended following Harris’ late hit in Sunday’s 14-9 win for the Bears over the 49ers, three players were ejected and neither team was happy.“These are my guys. I don’t care at the end of the day what the deal is. You going to do all that, you let him go,” Sherman said. “And it took too long for them to let him go. So I went in there to grab him and they continued to pull and drug and grab on me. I’m a grown man with kids. I don’t have to care about any of that. At the end of the day, they’re going to be punched for it.”The scuffle started after Trubisky scrambled on third down and went into a slide near the Chicago sideline. Harris came over from his safety position and hit Trubisky late, sending the quarterback’s head into the ground.The Bears (11-4) predictably took exception and got in Harris’ face.“I just saw Mitch’s head hit the ground real hard. It was an unnecessary hit,” receiver Anthony Miller said. “He already missed a couple of games because of a late hit. When I see that, it’s dirty football.”The 49ers (4-11) predictably saw the play a different way with Harris saying there was no ill intent on the hit.“You’re playing full, you’re playing all out, lights out every play and some of those plays might happen every now and then where, with new rules and how everything is, I feel like I tried to let up as much as I can,” he said. “But it’s not in my hands. It’s in the refs’ hands.”Harris was immediately surrounded by several Bears players, leading Sherman to come in the middle of it to try to get his teammate out safely. That led to the scrum where punches were thrown by players on both teams.After a lengthy huddle by the officials and consultation with the replay center in New York Leonard Floyd Jerseys 2019 , referee Alex Kemp announced that Sherman, Miller and Bears receiver Joshua Bellamy were all ejected.Niners coach Kyle Shanahan gave Sherman a handshake after getting the news that his star cornerback would finish the game in the locker room.“I just told him I appreciated how he battled today,” Shanahan said. “I don’t know what happened over there and Sherm, very clearly to me, was trying to get this brother’s back and I love for guys to do it as much as they can.”Trubisky said he felt the same way about his teammates, who stood up for him following the hit.“It didn’t surprise me,” he said. “I saw exactly what I knew. My teammates had my back all the way, which is awesome to see. We just have to have my back and be smart as a team because we can’t afford to lose two guys like that.” Chicago Bears linebacker Roquan Smith could be the exception to an unwritten NFL preseason rule.The team's first-round draft pick could become one of the few key players who actually appear in Chicago's fifth and final preseason game Thursday against Buffalo.NFL teams usually rest starters and key players in the last preseason game as they gear practices toward the regular-season opener. But Smith held out 29 days before signing his contract and has had just six practices. He's missed practice time this week with left hamstring tightness, making it unlikely he will play Saturday against Kansas City.Getting Smith into the final preseason game would serve a purpose.”I think his situation is a little bit different because he hasn't had the playing time,” coach Matt Nagy said after Thursday's practice. “I think what we'll do is we'll monitor where he's at as far as his health, and if we feel like it's safe to get him reps (Thursday), which he obviously needs, then we'll do that. If we think it's not safe, then we're not going to do it.”Smith did not practice Tuesday because of the hamstring, and then practiced only on a limited basis and not during team scrimmages on Wednesday and Thursday.Nagy stopped just short of saying Smith would not play in Saturday's noon game.”I'm not gonna say that White Eddie Jackson Jerseys , but I would say right now it's, with him not being out here full go the last two days, it's been a little more (than) a little tough,” Nagy said.The Bears open the regular season Sept. 9 in a Sunday night game at Green Bay, and the goal is to have Smith ready for that game regardless of whether he plays in the preseason.”You have to be so careful with those injuries because all of a sudden you think you're good, and then you put somebody in, and then it compounds it,” Nagy said. “We want to stay away from the compounded injuries.”Smith is not worried about the effect missing so much practice time and preseason games could have on his play.”I feel very comfortable in myself and my abilities,” Smith said. “So whenever coach feels it's right for me to get out there, then it'll be that.”NOTESS DeAndre Houston-Carson suffered a fractured forearm in Saturday's 24-23 preseason win at Denver and will be unavailable to start the regular season. Houston-Carson has been a special-teams contributor and ranked as the fourth safety. … TE Adam Shaheen is suffering from both ankle and foot sprains, Nagy said. Initially the Bears called it an ankle sprain. Shaheen is unlikely to play again until the regular-season opener, if not later. … The Bears could get their first look in game action at WR Taylor Gabriel, who injured his foot during the training camp practices in Bourbonnais. Gabriel returned to full-speed practice this week. … CB Prince Amukamara has returned to practice after an ankle injury and likely will be available for Saturday's game.
