11:11 AM ET 11.22 | Chicago Bears offensive lineman Chilo Rachal abruptly left the team earlier this week with reports citing "personal reasons." But now he's returned. Maybe. The Chicago Tribune's Vaughn McClure reports Rachal returned to Halas Hall on Thursday morning though it's unclear if he'll be reinstated. His emotional state is "very bad", according to the Chicago Tribune. Rachal had five days to report back to the team after the Bears placed him on the reserve/left squad list.

The NFL has a "reserve/left squad list?"

How often do bizarre things like this happen?

Better yet, he comes back the same day he left. Are they sure he didn't just go for a latte ?

No surprises there. That O line is bad enough to make even the sanest person want to fall on their sword!

Quite honestly, I don't know how Jay Cuttler manages go out there game in and game out and get his body pounded black and blue without asking for a trade.

That O line is nothing but a bunch of useless pylons (with apologies to pylons everywhere).

Repeatedly getting victimized can be quite traumatizing. The Bears currently have an open door policy for O Lineman who feel the need to leave to clear their heads

Da Bears should be looking for a refurbished turnstile from the New York Subway System.
