    The Beloved return to practice in Bourbonnais today, with the session being moved up from its scheduled 3.15pm start time to 11.10am due to expected bad weather in the afternoon.
    Saturday's Family Fest at Soldier Field took its toll, with Kelvin Hayden straining a hamstring (week-to-week), Earl Bennett being evaluated for a concussion (no word yet), rookie DE Cornelius Washington suffering a strained elbow (day-to-day), and both Alshon Jeffery and Julius Peppers being held out for hamstring tightness. On the plus side, Corey Wootton (hip) was able to participate in individual position drills. Check the recap thread here.
    With three days' practice before Carolina (the team breaks camp after Wednesday to travel on Thursday), Isaiah Frey has been turning heads and could benefit from taking advantage of Hayden's absence to fight for a roster spot; possible new #2 blocking TE 6'8" Leonard Pope is a red zone matchup nightmare for DBs; and apparently the Bears offense has been using back-shoulder throws.
    What storylines are you watching for from today's practice?

    HOWEVA! The Chicago Bears website also has a handy Training Camp FAQ which can be found here.

    Skip Schweickert: Open Thread Responsibly (TM). Also, Tim Tebow is still the best quarterback in the NFL and now I'm just going to sit here and look smug through my narrowed eyes.

    Thanks for the updates, Ric. I'm not too worried about the injuries except for Bennett's possible concussion. Peppers' need for reps is minimal. Williams and Hayden should be back in a week or two.

    If the camp chatter is to be believed, Frey has developed quite a bit from last year where he looked clueless and is making a strong push to be the backup NB. I am glad the OL is back to full strength because that unit definitely needs the reps together for cohesion.

    Hate to say it, but sounds like a concussion for Earl. No bueno

    Fendi has had to many drops in this camp according to ZZ just on the score, which is why Pope was brought in.

    That's too bad about E Bennett. Can he loan somebody his hands until he gets better?
