    Today was the final day of the inaugural Camp Trestman. Tomorrow the Chicago Bears will be in Bourbonnais to break camp, and to simply get the heck out of there. Here's a recap of Tuesday's practice. Thanks Twitter!
    Tweet Share 5 Comments
    The Chicago Bears did not practice in full pads today, the first time they didn't go full gear since it was permitted. Perhaps Marc Trestman wanted to give his team a break after such a viscous, and efficient practice yesterday. And speaking of yesterday, if you missed that recap. here's the link.
    Here's a list of who didn't practice today.
    WR - Earl Bennett (concussion) - Marc Trestman has been in daily contact with his slot WR
    DT - Henry Melton (concussion) - Nate Collins is taking advantage of the extra reps at the 3-tech DT
    DE - Cheta Ozogwu (hamstring) - he hurt his hammy yesterday
    RB - Harvey Unga (rib) - I thought he helped himself in the 1st game, he needs to get back on the field
    RB - Armando Allen (hamstring) - the Bears have plans to utilize his skills, hopefully he's back soon
    LS - Patrick Mannelly (rib) - nothing will prevent The Mann from playing week 1
    LB - D.J. Williams (calf) - I'll assume he'll be inserted back as the starting Mike backer, but you never know
    OT - Jonathan Scott (knee) - spent the day with the team doctors, and had his knee aspirated (drained), he's expected back next week
    Wide out Joe Anderson did have that MRI yesterday after practice, and the results were negative.
    In case you missed it, the Bears signed a running back yesterday, former Charger Curtis Brinkley, and they waived wide out Marcus Rucker.
    Now on to some tasty tweets.

    ZZ on the score update just said that OC Kromer stated that for Webb to make the final 8 on the roster(the team is going to carry 8 OL'men) he has to be able to play 2 positions(I would assume swing T) .

    It would seem to me, that he was well aware of this possibility which is why he said he was going dark from twitter last week. And he might well be off the team if he cannot outplay 2 of the three remaining T's(Britton/Scott/Mills)

    As bad as our line is, I keep getting more and more confident in our coaching staff.

    I checked, and Webb Nation HAS been silent. Only two tweets since he said he was going dark. One he wished himself and baby Cutler happy birthdays, the other appeared related to a charity event. Although one was posted at 3 am???? Maybe they're STILL not working him hard enough.

    Not only that, but hat's off to getting this board rolling again. Whiz and the rest of the staff did a great job setting things up and working out bugs, but rics forum participation went a long way to giving the board a heartbeat again. Kinda like going into a bar, if things are dead, you turn around and leave; but at some point, someone has to go in and stay to get everyone else to start coming in again.

    Unga is trying to set a new NFL record for most training camps attended without ever playing in a real game.

    No kidding, what the hell is up with this guy. I was actually pulling for him after we picked him up in the SD, as I thought BYU kind of did him wrong, but at some point enough is enough. Time to fish or cut bate Harv.

    Bears wrap up Trestman's first camp
    By KEVIN FISHBAIN - kfishbain@shawmedia.com - Tuesday, August 13, 2013 3:41 p.m. CDT
    BOURBONNAIS — The Bears wrapped up 2013 training camp in Bourbonnais on Tuesday on a quiet note, as the team practiced in shells for the first time since putting the pads on July 28th.
    With a home preseason game on Thursday night against the Chargers, Marc Trestman treated practice like a Friday during the season.
    The key to camp was installing the new offense, among other things, and the positive Trestman — to no one’s surprise — was pleased with how his first camp went overall.
    “We’ve been able to operate each and every day to the max and execute the plan of what we wanted to get accomplished in training camp,” he said. “Moving people around, getting our offense installed, having to go up against a terrific defense each and every day, seeing our young players develop — a lot of good things.”
    It has been clear throughout camp that the offense still has some kinks to work out, and Jay Cutler threw another interception on Tuesday — this one by Tim Jennings at the goal line on an out route intended for Brandon Marshall. Jennings returned the pick to plenty of cheers and bowed to the fans in the opposite endzone.
    “I love [turnovers] as the head coach, I’m disappointed when it happens from an offensive standpoint, obviously,” Trestman said. “It’s training camp. It’s practice. We don’t want to see it any time, but that’s why we’re here, to get better and clean up our football.
    “We’re going to fail during practice, and how we respond, as I’ve said before, is the most important thing.”
    We’ll continue to learn more about where the offense is at as the preseason games pick up, and we should see more from the first-team offense on Thursday night. Cutler wouldn’t go into detail on where he thinks the unit is with the new system after three weeks of camp.
    “We're moving along. I don't think I can pinpoint exactly where we're at, but we're definitely getting better each and every day,” he said. “Like I just said, there's ups and downs and there's positives and negatives. We're trying to look at the negatives and try to fix those as quickly as possible and continue to find more and more positives each and every day.”
    Trestman’s challenge overall is improving a team that went 10-6 last year. He explained where he has seen progress with training camp wrapping up.
    “Just the work ethic of the team I think was built. We’ve got a chance to have a real strong backbone. It won’t be the same team as it was last year, but we think it can be better,” he said. “We’re working to be better and that’s a good thing. That’s all we’ve tried to do each and every day.”

    Bears Training Camp Notebook: Aug. 13
    By KEVIN FISHBAIN - kfishbain@shawmedia.com - Tuesday, August 13, 2013 4:54 p.m. CDT
    Second-year wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has had a strong camp, and head coach Marc Trestman mentioned his development as a good indicator of the progress the Bears have made in training camp.
    "He is extremely important and you can see the way, those of you that have been out here to watch practice, he’s been, when he’s been out here he’s been consistent from the start of practice to the end, he’s worked," Trestman said. "He’s a very hard worker. Very smart, and obviously a dimension we’d love to have and we’re looking forward to seeing."
    Jay Cutler has also been a fan of the work of his No. 2 receiver this summer.
    "He's doing everything we ask for him. He's blocking the run periods, he catching balls when we need him to catch balls," he said. "He's making tough catches one-on-one. You got to be excited to to see a young guy like that work in the offseason and come out and do what he's been doing."
    Here are the rest of the news and notes from Tuesday's final practice of training camp in Bourbonnais:
    Webb of concern: J’Marcus Webb remained the second-team left tackle on Tuesday, and reading between the lines of offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer, Webb has work to do to simply make this team. “He moved to the left side, and he had been working the right side, so it did take him a little time to adjust,” Kromer said. “But if he’s going to be on our team, if he makes our eight, then he’s going to have to play more than one spot, and this is a great opportunity for him to get those reps.” Cutler was asked if the offensive players have talked to him since the demotion. "I think a lot of us have said something to him. You don't want to see him fall off and not use his ability the way that we think he can use his ability," he said. "He's still in the running for this thing and we'd like to see him go out and rebound and play even better so we'll see how he reacts to it."
    Scott update: Jonathan Scott was not present at practice. Trestman said Scott’s injured knee was “aspirated over the last couple days” and they are positive about getting him back next week. ... As for other injuries, Henry Melton and Earl Bennett were both absent from camp again as they recover from concussions. Harvey Unga, Armando Allen, Patrick Mannelly and D.J. Williams did not practice.
    Quick hits: Tuesday’s practice was run predominantly from the sideline, allowing the players to practice transitioning on and off the field efficiently. … The Bears’ special-teams units got a lot of work in, including hurrying onto the field for a field goal situation. Top special-teamers Blake Costanzo, Sherrick McManis and Zack Bowman were doing extra work after practice. … The two top passing plays came from the backups. Matt Blanchard hit Josh Lenz for a long gain and Josh McCown found Terrence Toliver, who came back to the ball for a big catch.
