The Bears are asking that Kevin Jones to drop 10 pounds while on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
The thinking is Jones will better be able to handle the the wear and tear of the job on his surgically repaired right knee if he's a little bit lighter. Jones had surgery to repair a torn ACL in January and is at least a decent bet to begin the season on PUP.
Mark Bradley is back practicing after having some work done on his knee. He has seen limping at times and is currently working next to Brandon Rideau as a third string receiver.
Chris Williams is still not practicing after suffering back spasms.
Rookie tackle Chris Williams remained out of pads again with soreness in his back. "Chris is getting better," coach Lovie Smith said, "and we need to get him out there."
