Give the Bears’ strength staff a raise as every major Bear participated in Wednesday’s practice on a short week.

I can assure you this isn’t all a dream.

Entering a short week against the Arizona Cardinals, the Bears on Wednesday had no major players show up on their injury report. The only man to appear was DeAndre Houston-Carson with a broken arm, but that isn’t a new development.

There was potential that both Kyle Long and Tarik Cohen would at least be limited with ankle injuries suffered against the Seahawks on Monday night, yet their names weren’t on the ledger. Since the Bears have a shot to go over .500 for the first time since 2014 in Glendale, Arizona, this is obviously major news for a team at full capacity.

I don’t know if it’s thanks to the efforts of new strength coach Jason Loscalzo and his staff, or just better injury luck for the Bears compared to recent years. Whatever it is, it’s clearly working.

Wipe your glasses with a fine cloth: the Bears are fully healthy for the second consecutive week.
