Preparations for the 2014 preseason are now officially underway, as the - nay, our - Chicago Bears take to the practice field for the first time at training camp from 9am-11.30am CT. We've already had our first bit of news, albeit unofficial, from Bourbonnais:

Be sure to check out Sam's pre-training camp concerns and storylines and Lester's ongoing training camp battles series to refresh your memory regarding what's at stake and who has the most to gain... or lose. Lester also has a quick round-up of snippets from yesterday's report-in day at ONU and, of course, there's the usual collection of news and notes relating to The Beloved in today's Bears Den.
What are you most looking forward to seeing as training camp practices get underway?
A few words from Lester, taken from last year's training camp open threads:
