Bears Training Camp 2018: Offense has their best day

NFL: Chicago Bears-Minicamp Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

We’re still really, really early into Chicago Bears’ training camp, but today was the offense’s best day so far.

I asked Robert Zeglinski, who is at Bourbonnais covering camp, his take on the offense’s performance and he told me, “They were fine. Certainly much more smooth, but they didn’t light it up. That’s a good step up for this group though, they need to start somewhere.”

After being handled by the defense for most of camp, today’s small bit of sustained success is a good building block for the Matt Nagy offense.

I asked Robert for some more specifics and he shared that he “thought Trubisky forced less, and was generally more patient,” and that he “used his playmakers well.” He also said that the offensive line looked good today.

Robert also Tweeted out the four players that have impressed him the most so far and they are; rookie wide receiver Anthony Miller, starting left tackle Charles Leno Jr., new U tight end Trey Burton, and starting corner Prince Amukamara.

Read more about Leno’s developments and this group in Robert’s full notebook from Friday for The Rock River Times.

The Bears were without a few players again today. Rookie Roquan Smith is still holding out, and it was reported that Danny Trevathan, Aaron Lynch, Joel Iyiegbuniwe, Sherrick McManis, Kevin Toliver, and Hroniss Grasu were all held out due to injury. Kyle Long was reported to be having an off day.

Now on to a few Twitter highlights from practice...
