The Bears' receiving corps returned to full strength for the first time since Week Two, as Earl Bennett came back from a chest injury vs. the Eagles, but Johnny Knox is not standing out in the crowd. Knox was the Bears' leading wide receiver during their run to the NFC North title in 2010 and came within 40 yards of becoming Chicago's first 1,000-yard receiver since 2002, but he will need to finish this season much stronger than he started it to come close to hitting that milestone this season. Knox, who has started six of the past seven games, has 20 catches, which puts him on pace for a career-low 40, for 362 yards and he has yet to score a touchdown. Mike Martz called Knox out in training camp, challenging him to be a perfectionist, which was a motivational ploy. The third-year veteran accepted the challenge, but his role has declined with a Martz favorite, Roy Williams, in tow.
