The big news coming out of Halas Hall today was starting right guard Kyle Long back at practice, albeit limited. Last week he spent some time in a walking boot to ease his strained calf, but today he was back and fired up, bouncing around to Warren G’s Regulate.
The Chicago Bears could ill afford an injury to their starting offensive line as the depth at that position is shaky at best.
In other injury news, tight end Zach Miller and wide out Eddie Royal were both held out with concussion symptoms again. Other Bears missing practice were inside linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, corner Brandon Boykin, outside linebacker Roy Robertson-Harris and tight end Ben Braunecker.
Offensive lineman Adrian Bellard was carted off during practice, early indication is that is a knee injury.
There were also a couple of big scares averted when inside linebacker Danny Trevathan and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery left the practice field, but quickly returned with what was initially reported as cramping. Jeffery eventually ended up sitting out because of muscle tightness and head coach John Fox said Trevathan, who also ended up sitting out, actually tweaked his knee when he slipped. Neither injury appears to be serious.
Wide receiver Marquess Wilson who is on the PUP list, was hanging around at practice today.
Pernell McPhee, also on the PUP list, was spotted walking around too.
Here are a few more tweets from Training Camp, including a video of the latest scrum.

Loudest cheer of the day: Cutler hits Kevin White with a deep pass down the sideline. #Superbowl. Nice body control by White on the catch.— Kevin Fishbain (@kfishbain) August 3, 2016
Jay Cutler was going at Kevin White a lot early in camp to build some chemistry, but it wasn’t all good vibes for the former first round pick. At one point his offensive coordinator, Dowell Loggains, yelled at him for not going full speed on a deep pass.
Even though Cutler and Loggains both said the offense didn’t have a good overall day, the defense still had some struggles.
Here’s some stuff on everyone's favorite 7th rounder...
Now Braverman and Sherrick McManis scrapping. Feisty practice. John Fox probably loves it. #BearsCamp— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) August 3, 2016
