It was a beautiful day at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL, for the Chicago Bears to continue Camp Trestman, and they did so with a few players on the sideline.
Middle linebacker D.J. Williams remains in a walking boot to protect his strained calf. Starting left tackle Jermon Bushrod is out of his walking boot, but not practicing. Defensive end Jamaal Anderson still has a sore knee, as does tackle Jonathan Scott. Lance Briggs is sitting out today, although there doesn't appear to be any injury, just a veteran day off. Tim Jennings was also absent, after being excused yesterday for personal reasons, he was excused again today.
With Bushrod and Scott still out, Eben Britton started the day at left tackle with the ones, but he didn't stay there. He eventually flipped over to the right side, and -- JWEBB Nation revoice! -- J'Marcus Webb was getting some reps in at left tackle. In more O-Line news, Kyle Long again had reps with the starters at RG, fellow rookie Jordan Mills was working with the twos at RT, and Taylor Boggs was playing center with the twos.
Now let's get down to the nitty gritty...

This last one isn't Bears related, it's just some good advice.
If you ever feel like you're going to have to apologize for something if people find out you did it, you probably shouldn't do it.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) July 31, 2013
