Chicago Bears players want the team to ask the Chicago Park District to lay down an artificial surface at Soldier Field.

The request comes after open practice was canceled there at the Family Fest on Friday.

Hundreds of fans were left disappointed when managers determined poor field conditions made it too risky to practice.

The team returned to Bourbonnais for a late-night, closed practice.
