Bears head coach Matt Nagy’s Wednesday press conference was short on good news about the team’s rookies on the injury front.

Nagy announced that second-round tackle Teven Jenkins will have surgery to address the back injury that’s kept him off the field for all of training camp. He also revealed that first-round pick Justin Fields will not practice because of a groin injury.

Nagy went on to say that the team is being “extremely conservative” with the quarterback and that their goal is still for him to play against the Bills this Saturday, although his status obviously going to be up in the air until closer to the kickoff.

Tight end Cole Kmet and defensive tackle Eddie Goldman will also be out of practice for the Bears on Wednesday, so the injury issues aren’t limited to this year’s draft class even if the rookies are getting the most attention.

  1. I dont know if he will be the next RG3 but when you draft a quarterback and his strength is running, good luck. Pocket passers can play easily 15 years, and even beyond. If your strength is running? Good luck having a career at all because those dudes in the NFL hit like Mack trucks.

  2. Back surgery when you are that young is a terrible sign. This guy might have chronic issues, and a sporadic 3 year NFL career. I hope not for the kid’s sake. But another bulleye from Ryan Pace 🙂

  3. Reported, his worst practice to date then pulls up lame the next day…Nick Foles mentorimg is really paying off!

  4. What a bummer. And they were trying to peddle Foles when it happened. Darn. Nothing works out for da bears lately

  5. Bears need tp fire the training staff and start doing the opposite of what they’ve been doing so far this preseason. This is ridiculous.
