There's just one more practice remaining until the Chicago Bears break camp on Wednesday. Here's a recap of Monday's practice.

Don't let the picture fool you, Fendi Onobun dropped this potential TD pass.

The Chicago Bears held a 9am practice this morning and we have all the gory details for you to consume. Enjoy...

Who's not practicing:
Long snapper Patrick Mannelly (rib) - vows to be ready for week one
Wide receiver Earl Bennett (concussion) - Trestmam says his symptoms are lingering
Defensive tackle Henry Melton (concussion) - concused players can't speak with the media until they pass concussion protocal
Linebacker D.J. Williams (calf) - I think he removed his walking boot at some point during Jon Bostic's TD return
Running back Harvey Unga (rib) - bubble player can't afford missing time
Running back Armando Allen (hamstring) - yesterday they wrapped it and called it minor, today they are calling it week to week
Offensive Tackle - Jonathan Scott (knee) - talk about lingering...

After sitting out yesterday wide receiver Joe Anderson was back at practice today, so apparently no MRI for him. Defensive end Corey Wootton also practiced today, but he did have his calf wrapped at one point.

Linebacker Andrew Starks was hurt and had to be evaluated. Defensive end Cheta Ozougwu was spotted with a wrap on his hamstring.

Rookies Jordan Mills and Kyle Long are both starting on the right side of the Bears o-line again today.
