Alshon Jeffery limited at practice today for the Chicago Bears

With the first week of the 2015 NFL season set to kickoff tomorrow, we're going to see some more info trickle out of Halas Hall about injured Chicago Bears.

Throughout the season, the Bears will generally practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and on those days the team will put out a daily injury report. The first two days of practice we will be notified on which players are being held out entirely, which players are limited and which of the previously injured players are practicing in full.

Earlier today the Chicago Bears issued their first official injury report of the 2015 season and the biggest surprise was wide out Alshon Jeffery being back on the field. He was officially listed as a limited participant, i.e. helmet and shorts, but the fact that he was finally spotted running routes and catching the ball is "encouraging" according to head coach John Fox

For those of you needing proof, check out the pics from Zach Zaidman.

During the portion of practice open to the media, ESPN is reporting that Jeffery "ran close to full speed and did not display any visible signs of pain or discomfort."

Jeffery (calf) wasn't the only Bear wide receiver listed as limited on today's report. He was joined by Eddie Royal (hip) and Marquess Wilson (hamstring), as well as linebacker Jon Bostic (ankle).

Two Bears were held out of practice, corner Tracy Porter (hamstring) and outside linebacker Sam Acho (illness).

Quarterback Jimmy Clausen and nose tackle Eddie Goldman were both listed as full participants after previously suffering from concussions. Another full participant, although not listed on the report, was left tackle Jermon Bushrod (back). Bushrod's back issue may be something that the team has to monitor all season long.
