After having a day off on Tuesday, the Chicago Bears returned to the practice field on Wednesday on the sixth day of training camp.
After practice, quarterback Jay Cutler spoke about the progress of the team’s offense.
The offense showed signs of progress today in practice. Cutler threw three end-zone completions to wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, and tight end Martellus Bennett.
In the video, Cutler talks about the comparisons between Marc Trestman’s offensive system and the offensive system of the Denver Broncos in 2008. Cutler described the two systems as similar, however as of yet, the Bears have not shown any offensive formations in where the pocket is moving.
Cutler prefers a moving pocket, and that figures to be a part of the Trestman’s variant of the west-coast offense.
- The injuries continued for the Bears on Wednesday. Middle linebacker DJ Williams was carted off the practice field and Trestman described his status as week to week. Williams is believed to have suffered a calf injury.
- Speaking of the injury to Williams, now is the time for second round draft pick Jon Bostic to step up. Bostic saw reps with the first team on Wednesday and has drawn positive remarks from the Bears’ coaching staff.
- Jermon Bushrod did not practice on Wednesday, but offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer did not express too much concern about the injury.
