McMahon ready, but Fuller to start
Originally published Nov. 29, 1985
Jim McMahon will be available to play, but Steve Fuller will start at quarterback for the Bears Monday night, coach Mike Ditka said yesterday.
McMahon, who has missed three games with tendinitis in his throwing shoulder, practiced with the team for the first time in nearly four weeks. He had thrown hard for the first time Wednesday.
“He came off yesterday fine,” Ditka said. “He did fine today. He’s throwing the ball very well.
“I know he is able to play against Miami Monday if I need him. I might use him if I want to.”
