The Chicago Bears selected West Virginia linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski in the 4th round of this year's NFL draft, and while it was a name that many hadn't heard of, it was a pick that had other saying would be a steal.

The Bears have high hopes for Kwiatkoski and think he can come in and be a linebacker of the future in Chicago, but on day three of Training Camp-- the first day with full pads-- Kwiatkoski went down with a hamstring.

Later after practice, head coach John Fox indicated the rookie had "left practice with a hamstring injury."

He didn't say how serious the injury is, as there will be plenty of bumps and bruises now that contact is being made in practice. But hamstrings can be delicate, especially for young rookies trying to get in tune with the size and speed of the NFL.
