The Chicago Bears donned the pads and stepped on the field at Halas Hall for the first time in front of the media on Monday. We recently highlighted how the intensity would be ratcheted up as a result.
While Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles have been working out with the team for a couple of weeks now, Monday was the first “real practice.” In light of COVID-19, fans are not allowed to attend training camp this year. In fact, even if there was no global pandemic, fan attendance was likely going to be greatly reduced at Bears camp. That’s because they had shifted operations from Bourbonnais to Halas Hall, where capacity was already going to be limited.
