Bears injury update for Wednesday, Aug. 7

Julius Peppers is absent from practice again; he was excused yesterday. Kyle Moore filled in at defensive end. Expect to see a lot of him and Shea McClellin on Friday night, as Corey Wootton has ice on his lower right leg. 

Free safety Chris Conte is not participating in team drills - Craig Steltz took his spot next to Major Wright with the top defense. 

Tackle Jonathan Scott (knee) remains out. Earl Bennett is present for the first time since Saturday, but he is being treated for a concussion. Bennett is not practicing and won't play in Friday's preseason opener.
