LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) A Soldier Field spokesman says the game clocks that malfunctioned during last weekend's game between the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings have been repaired.

Spokesman Luca Serra says in an email Thursday that Daktronics, the manufacturer and operator of the systems, ran through game simulations on Monday and Tuesday. The company has also been performing tests this week.

Serra says the system ''is game ready.''

The game clocks malfunctioned for big chunks of last week's game - a win for the Bears. Officials were forced to keep time by hand, and the Vikings were not happy afterward.
