Clark confident he'll return to Bears soon after injuring knee

CHICAGO -- Bears backup tight end Desmond Clark indicated the knee injury he suffered during Saturday night's 14-13 preseason loss to the Tennessee Titans wasn't as bad as it appeared to be, posting on Twitter that he's confident he'll return soon.

Clark left the field on a cart during the fourth quarter after taking a brutal hit to the left knee from Titans safety Anthony Smith while trying to make a catch. On Sunday, Clark posted on Twitter, "Took quite a shot out there but feeling confident I'll be ok and back on the field soon."

There was no update Sunday from the Bears on Clark or running back Marion Barber, who left with a calf injury in the first half.
