Teven Jenkins remains out of practice for Bears

The Bears practiced without tackle Teven Jenkins for the sixth straight day on Wednesday.

Jenkins only participated in the first practice of training camp and has been on the sideline since that point. A report this week indicated the Bears are engaged in trade talks concerning the 2021 second-round pick, who has fallen behind rookie Braxton Jones and Larry Borom in the competition for starting jobs in Chicago.

While it seems like Jenkins might be on his way out in Chicago, head coach Matt Eberflus said that an undisclosed injury is the reason why Jenkins is not taking part in the workouts.

“Teven’s in that group where he’s working with the trainers and he’ll be back when he’s back,” Eberflus said, via Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com.

Whatever the reason for Jenkins’ absence from the field, the result is that he’s falling further behind in a bid for a role on the team’s offense this season. That may make a trade a welcome development for a player whose future with the Bears seemed a lot brighter a year ago.

  1. “Undisclosed injury” is ominous for a guy who had back surgery shortly after he was drafted.

  2. In any profession, your greatest asset is availability. Unfortunately, due to injury, this kid hasn’t had that quality.

  3. It’s gonna take years for this new Bears front office and coaching staff to reverse some of the damage done by Pace, Nagy and Co.

    And that’s assuming they are actually competent, which is yet to be known.

  4. Pace made it a common move to trade up for a player he coveted. For the most part, those players have been failures.

    The one time he let the draft come to him, he ended up drafting Roquan Smith who has been his best pick to date in either the first or second round.

  5. This sucks as fans because all we hear is click-bait articles and what-ifs. Come out and be honest with the fan base. It’s training camp, can’t imagine we’re giving other teams an edge.

    I’m bummed he hasn’t panned out, it seemed like he was a promising draft choice and would be nice to have depth and competition on the line.
