Soldier Field GM: Turf ready for season kickoff

Sept. 9, 2011 (CHICAGO)

The turf was under a protective tarp Friday afternoon because of the threat of rain.

On Thursday, workers were tending to the playing surface which appeared brown in a few spots.

General Manager Tim Lefevour tells ABC7 the turf was okayed by the Bears following their last walk-through and that there was no need to re-sod the field.

The Bears tangle with the Atlanta Falcons at noon Sunday.
