After three offseason surgeries, offensive lineman Kyle Long was a full participant in the Bears' first practice. "I got to hit other guys and that was fun," Long said. "I don't look much into psychological hurdles. But a physical hurdle? Yes it was. I had a lot going on this offseason."

It was wet and stormy for the Bears' first training camp practice on Friday. New coach Matt Nagy said there was virtually no chance the team would practice inside (despite several showers during the two-hour period). "You don't want to have that mentality where you just always try to have perfect weather," Nagy said, adding adversity was good for his team — who, let's face it, plays in bad weather often.

Veteran offensive lineman Kyle Long — one of just five players on the active roster over the age of 30 — noted how old he feels around the Bears team. At the same time, Long is taking cues from the 23-year-old quarterback, Mitch Trubisky. "He's a grown man now," Long said of Trubisky. "He's got some bass in his voice. And he's really taken ownership of this locker room."
