The hits start coming Sunday when the Bears go full pads for the first time on Day 3 of training camp in Bourbonnais.
BOURBONNAIS — OK, yes, it was only practice. But it’s worth noting because it’s been a long, long time since the Bears could say this:
The unraveling of the 2013 Bears technically began amid a win in Pittsburgh that was pushing the Bears to a 3-0 start. That came with the torn ACL suffered by defensive tackle Henry Melton.
Bears general manager Phil Emery overhauled one of the league's worst defenses this offseason.
Bears players and staff start checking in for Camp ’14 on Wednesday. Practice (sans pads for the first two days) starts on Friday.
