Chicago Bears Training Camp Day Five: Bumps and Bruises and a Skirmish


A few quick bullet point highlights on Day 5 of Chicago Bears training camp.

Just a few notes with the highlights from the fifth day of Chicago bears training camp practice:

More from Bear Goggles On

  • Kyle Long continues to be sidelined with the calf injury.
  • Eddie Royal was carted off the field shortly after the start of practice.  He suffered a concussion and is now in the NFL’s concussion protocol.
  • Royal joins tight end Zach Miller, who skipped practice today after some late onset concussion symptoms following Sunday’s practice.
  • Speaking of injured tight ends, undrafted free agent Ben Braunecker was spotted in a walking boot after practice.  With a shaky tight end group, many thought Braunecker might have an opportunity to contribute.
  • Cornerback Kyle Fuller was limited at practice with an ankle injury.
  • Outside linebacker Leonard Floyd was limited with a shoulder injury.  This comes after being “full go” for one day following an illness at the start of camp.  It’s been a little rough for the rookie thus far.
  • There were a few scuffles as the heat is apparently getting to some folks:
  • Ted Larsen is getting a reputation as a bit of a red ass.  He’s had three fights in five practices.
  • The dust-ups didn’t stop there:
  • It’s good to see the Bears getting physical and getting an edge.  Head coach John Fox says “”are part of football, but sometimes they’re a waste of energy.”
  • Nice catches of the day go to Kevin White, Ka’Deem Carey and of course, fan favorite Daniel Braverman.  Where do I get my Braverman shersey?

The Bears take a day off on Tuesday (yes, seriously) and get back after it on Wednesday.  Believe it or not, they’ve already completed HALF of the Bourbonnais portion of training camp.
