LAKE FOREST, Illinois — When Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs asked coach Marc Trestman for a personal day this week, he left out a detail — it was to attend the grand opening of his barbecue restaurant.

He didn't mention it afterward, either.

Briggs raised a few more eyebrows with that revelation while being grilled by reporters on Wednesday.

With the season opening this week he found himself at the center of attention for missing practice to be at the opening of his barbecue restaurant near his hometown of Sacramento, California.

His comments on Wednesday added some more heat.

He said "no" after someone asked if he told Trestman the day off was for the opening of the restaurant he part-owns.
