GURNEE, Ill. - Roster spots are usually the story this time of year in the NFL, but for the Bears it's a matter of who will be healthy enough to play when the season begins three weeks from now.
Zach Miller and Eddie Royal returned to practice today after sitting out Thursday in Foxborough.
Jeremy Langford, who played extremely well in that game, showed up to the "Bears High School Takeover" at Warren Township High School in a walking boot.
Head Coach John Fox says someone landed on his left foot.
Despite the boot, Langford didn't seem to be in pain on the sidelines, where he was seen playing catch.
Another major cog in the Bears offense also had the night off.
Kyle Long was out with a hurt shoulder.
There were a few missing corners from the secondary, too.
Bryce Callahan didn't suit up.
Neither did Kyle Fuller, who had his knee scoped while the rest of the team was in New England taking on the Patriots.
All of those guys seem to have a set trajectory in terms of when they'll be back.
But, Pernell McPhee is somewhat of a mystery.
McPhee still hasn't practiced and it's unclear whether he'll be ready to go for the start of the season.
