After having a day off, the Chicago Bears returned to Halas Hall for their seventh day of training camp. Can you believe we are only nine days away from the Bears’ first preseason game versus the Miami Dolphins and the Hall of Fame game kicks off preseason tonight. Football is back!

To begin Thursday’s practice, the Bears had a lengthy list of players who would not be participating due to various injuries: Artie Burns, James Daniels, Tashaun Gipson, Teven Jenkins, Michael Joseph, Robert Quinn, Badara Traore and Josh Woods were all out.

And this list doesn’t include Christian Jones, Elijah Wilkinson, Patrick Scales and Eddie Goldman who were all placed on the COVID-19/reserve list.

The Chicago Bears were productive at practice despite missing players

Still, the Bears had a productive practice despite the circumstances they were in.

Quarterbacks Andy Dalton and Justin Fields each played to their individual strengths and let loose on the defense in 7-on-7 and team periods. Fields made some under-the-radar plays in today’s practice that should excite Bears fans.

But defensive coordinator Sean Desai’s unit did answer back with a few interceptions and trips to the “takeaway bucket.”

Make sure to give the episode a listen to get the full scoop from Thursday’s practice.
