Chicago Bears Camp recap and injury report

It was a bight and beautiful day at Olivet Nazarene University for the Chicago Bears training camp practice, and if there’s one thing we can definitely take away from what’s transpiring in Bourbonnais, it’s that the defense looks every bit like the number one unit that ended the 2018 season. Some could argue that this group looks even more dangerous than a year ago, since this training camp defense has Khalil Mack and Roquan Smith on it.

Mack and Smith have been showing up in every drill and team session, and that’s helped the defense “win” the day again today.

There were a few deflected passes that ended up as interceptions, but the word form camp is that Mitchell Trubisky has bounced back.

He had several touchdowns today, but overall he’s still not where he’d like to be, but like I wrote about in this article, he’s facing the best defense in the league. Hes also facing a plethora of different blitzes from new defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano, and this will just help get him ready for week one.

As for the injuries, tight end Adam Shaheen was back today, but his stay on the field wasn’t very long. He left only after about fifteen minutes of action. Head coach Matt Nagy said that Shaheen did what the team asked of him at practice and that he’s close to being a full participant.

Three Bear rookies are currently sidelined with wide out Riley Ridley continuing to rehab his hamstring, corner Stephen Denmark remains out with an ankle injury that will likely extend through next week, and speedy running back Kerrith Whyte Jr. was held out today with a hamstring issue and a foot sprain.

Wide receiver Jordan Williams-Lambert has also been out with a hamstring.

Here are a few other Tweets from camp.
