Bears players elected five team captains for the 2013-14 season Friday.
Some huge has been overshadowed in the quest to uncover the identity of the Bears’ starting middle linebacker vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.
For the second straight day the Bears filed an injury report with exactly zero names on it as “limited” or “did not participate” in practice.
