Bears released LB Jordan Senn.
The 30-year old veteran has made his bones on special teams over the last six years. He's lost a step with his speed and he just doesn't offer the Bears enough to hold the roster spot.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tim Duncan (rest) will not play Friday against Denver.
The Spurs will take advantage of the holiday and give Duncan an extra day of rest and get ready for Saturday against the Hawks. The Spurs could go with LaMarcus Aldridge at center for Friday and use David West at power forward or they could just give Boris Diaw the start. Either way, those are the three players likely to see the extra work in Duncan's absence. Analysis: Howard Bender
