NFL: Chicago Bears-Training Camp Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

After slipping out a press release late last night announcing that Pernell McPhee would begin training camp on the PUP list, Chicago Bears’ fans were waiting on the rest of the story.

So who else would be joining McPhee on the PUP, and which players would be heading for the NFI list?

How about no one!

Kyle Long and Danny Trevathan, two players still rehabbing, both practiced some today. Rookie Eddie Jackson, who was hurt at Alabama last season, was also out on the field.

New corner Marcus Cooper left practice early, and head coach John Fox said they’ll be cautious with him. Nose tackle Eddie Goldman missed practice today after having a hydration issue in his conditioning test. Safety Deon Bush was the only other Bear to fail the conditioning test (also dehydrated), and he was held out of practice as well. Fox did mention that Goldman would be at practice tomorrow.

But back to McPhee, Fox said it wasn’t the same knee that he had issues with the last two years, but the other that caused him to fail his physical yesterday. Fox called in "an irregularity."

The good news on McPhee is, the Bears can activate him to the roster at any time before the regular season starts. The bad news, this regime hasn’t had the best track record when it comes to injuries. Two years ago, wide out Kevin White went from day-to-day to gone for the season. Last year, a seemingly minor injury to cornerback Kyle Fuller, stole his entire season.

We’ll have to wait and see how McPhee recovers, so keep it locked right here at Windy City Gridiron for all the latest developments.

Here are a couple updates on Long, Trevathan and a few other injured.
