Chicago Bears: Last month DT Bryan Robinson pleaded guilty to driving under the influence, his second DUI arrest in the past year, and faced a possible 30-day prison term. Instead, the Chicago Tribune reports a judge gave Robinson credit for 17 days he spent in a rehabilitation center and suspended the remaining 13 days of Robinson's jail sentence pending the completion of 360 hours of community service. Robinson could receive a suspension from the league for the arrest, and an NFL spokesman said earlier this month that the league would review Robinson's case after the judge ruling. Robinson could be suspended for as many as four games, but the Bears hope it's as few as two. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Coach Jon Gruden said Anthony McFarland will take snaps at fullback during Wednesday's practice. "We'll use him in some short-yardage and goal-line situations. He'll line up just about everywhere on the goal line,'' Gruden told the Tampa Tribune. "We're not going to try to confuse anyone down there." Gruden also used DT Warren Sapp in similar fashion during last year's offseason practices, and had Ronde Barber lined up as a wide receiver this week.
