Chicago Bears Training Camp Recap: Alshon Jeffery has a mild hamstring injury

New, comments
NFL: Chicago Bears at San Diego Chargers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

I know what many of you Chicago Bears’ fans are thinking.

‘Here we go again.’

Bears wide out Alshon Jeffery briefly left practice yesterday with a hamstring ailment and today head coach John Fox informed the media that Jeffery has a “mild” hamstring issue.

We’ll have to wait and see how long this minor injury takes to clear up, but seeing as how it’s very early in camp, my guess is the Bears play it very cautious.

Other Bears reported as sitting out practice were WR Eddie Royal, TE Zach Miller and OL Adrian Bellard. The National Football Post’s Aaron Wilson is reporting that Bellard has a sprained lateral collateral ligament in his right knee and a bone bruise, so he will be signing off on an injury settlement soon.

Inside linebacker Danny Trevathan was back at practice after tweaking his knee yesterday and just to get this out there, rookie Leonard Floyd has been practicing.

Offensive guard Amini Silatolu is off the Physically Unable to Perform list after passing his physical and was back at practice.

This morning on WSCR 670AM, the Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs remarked that center Hroniss Grasu appeared to be bigger and stronger, and he was more confident and playing faster. If Grasu is able to understand all the line calls and get them made without having to think, that will be a big plus for the starting offensive line.

Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio met the media today so expect a few quotes from him mixed in with these tweets from camp...

FYI, #94 is first rounder Leonard Floyd...

What are some of your thoughts / concerns about camp so far?

EDIT: I just stumbled across this and had to share.

Check out the Jet Sweep action to Kevin White. It’s good to see the Bears getting creative with his 4.35 speed.
