The Bears were the latest team to engage in the “Mannequin Challenge” on Twitter, posting a video late Wednesday of their players frozen in formation on the practice field.
“I don’t think the Mannequin Challenge is our lineup, necessarily,” coach John Fox deadpanned.
He said it didn’t take long to do.
“It’s hard to mess that one up,” he said. “You just stand there.”
Quarterback Jay Cutler said the instructions were simple — don’t move.
“They told me to try to act like a quarterback as much as possible, hold the ball and not move,” Cutler said, “They said for 20 seconds, and then you can leave. So that was the extent of my responsibilities, and I feel like I did OK.”
