While the NFL is about having the best team possible, one of the most underrated aspects of the game is health. Indeed, the winning team is not always the best one, it's often times the healthiest one.
With that being said, the Chicago Bears have been pretty fortunate so far. Of course, a few players were forced to miss time, but with everything considered, it,s not that bad of a situation.
Well, Kevin Fishbain reported that Bears LB Roquan Smith (hip), TE Ryan Griffin (Achilles), S Dane Cruikshank (hamstring) and WR Velus Jones Jr. (hamstring) did not practice.
He also mentioned that OL Lucas Patrick did not have a cast on his right hand and took a few snaps with the O-line in the portion of practice open to the media.
