  • Kyle Long Went Full John Wick On Bears Rookie at Practice

It feels like eons ago, but it has been only a year since then-rookie Bears coach Matt Nagy rather unconventionally made a decision to play most of his starters about 20 combined snaps - if at all - in last year's exhibition season.

The practice was the first of its kind under Nagy, who moved the start of the workout from 8:15 5:45 p.m. How well he masters that will help define the Bears' success this year.

Nagy told reporters that he received positive feedback from players.

Wednesday was a tough day for Kyle Long.

"It's disappointing", he said - but he's not talking about the play on the field, just the horseplay that got out of hand. "And it's all - it's all controlled".

The first-team offense and first-team defense, both opposed exclusively by the Bears' reserves, ran 60 scripted plays that allowed them to practice every possible situation - from two- and four-minute to short-yardage and red zone and, as Nagy revealed, even some scripted sudden changes. I think that sometimes that's what gets neglected in really anything you do. "That means that you're not running plays that [are part of] your core concept, so let's get back to just playing fast and we'll figure out what we like and what we don't like". The guys have a 10-play drive on defense. You can't predict when sudden change occurs in a preseason game.

Trump asks Imran Khan to reduce tensions with India through dialogue
Observers said that the Security Council had put the onus of resolving the conflict on India and Pakistan. The landline connections were also restored in some other parts of the region, PTI said.

But one thing did get a bit out of control for a second consecutive day at Bears' training camp, and it's not exactly what the coach wanted to see.

The Bears' longest-tenured homegrown player and a three-time Pro Bowler, Long had been enjoying perhaps his best camp ever, if not at least the past three years, when he's been beset by one injury after the next.

Depending on which outlets readers get their camp analysis from, it might seem more like Trubisky was being called into the principal's office, with the quarterback having struggled a bit with his consistency, accuracy and ball security and the offense losing a lot more battles than it won, albeit vs. the NFL's premier 'D'.

"Let me tell you something: we're in a phenomenal spot right now", he said. Every coach is different. Every play was scripted.

"That kinda stuff we just don't do and I think at some point in time we've got to prove we're a mature team". But there's a lot of coaches out there that want to play their guys a lot, and there's nothing wrong with that.

"I don't have an answer for you".
