The Chicago Bears have completed the training camp portion of their offseason and they’ve done so without any significant injuries. The PUP list has been cleared out, and the three PUP listed players have been practicing without limitations. There have been a few rehabbing players that have been brought along slowly, but nothing that has been too restrictive. Starting tight end Trey Burton is probably the biggest name among those, and he said on Saturday that, “It’s really frustrating,” when the Bears held him out of practice, because he’s excited to be out there with his teammates, but he realizes that “there’s a bigger picture in mind.” It’s more important for them to cautiously monitor his rehab so he’s full go on Thursday, September 5th against the Packers.
Fellow tight end, Adam Shaheen, who had some time off for a sore back, has been practicing the last few days and yesterday was his best day of camp.
#Bears TE Adam Shaheen returned to practice today. By the sounds of it, today was by far his best day. Here he is coming down with a one-handed catch in the endzone. #BearsCamp pic.twitter.com/xN6RzYT3D4— Christian Shanafelt (@ChrisShanafelt) August 10, 2019
Ken Mitchell, who was in Bourbonnais covering practice on Saturday, tweeted out several times about the nice day that Shaheen was having. Both Shaheen and Burton were on the field practicing today in.
Yesterday the Bears saw two key players leave practice early, David Montgomery and Anthony Miller, but only Miller was held out today. Head coach Matt Nagy confirmed that the second year wide out has an ankle sprain and he expects him to be ready for week one.
Outside linebacker Aaron Lynch has missed the last two practices and Nagy said it was due to a shoulder injury.
