Chicago Bears Mini Camp Day 1 recap

Fendi Onobun is the Silver Ball Jumping Champion! - David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears have completed the 1st day of their three day mandatory mini camp and we have a bit of info for you from the practice...

Thanks to the wonderful Twitterverse, news about our favorite sports team is instantaneously available. We ran down some info on Jay Cutler earlier today, but now we'll hit on some other random news that came out of the first mini camp practice for the Chicago Bears.

For that Cutler stuff click here, "It was a hit parade", and for everything else continue on...

The middle linebacker battle has a "lead dog" and that dog is veteran D.J. Williams.

While not getting the "lead dog" designation, rookie Brock Vereen was still running with the starters at free safety.

Starting right tackle Jordan Mills sat out as a precaution with his foot injury, and starting left guard Matt Slauson was held out after his surgery. Mills is further along in his rehab, and both should be full go by training camp.

Backup safety Craig Steltz was also held out of the majority of practice.

Rookie defensive tackle Will Sutton, 2nd year linebacker Khaseem Greene and safety Chris Conte, were all excused from practice for "family reasons."

Quarterback Jordan Palmer is just about back from his minor injury and he better get to work because one of the five QBs on the current roster is sure to be cut.

Jimmy Clausen may be Palmer's biggest roster threat...

Even though QB Jerrod Johnson was running with the twos today.

Now for some rapid fire Tweets...
