More observations from Monday's Bears practice

Our team in Bourbonnais offered these observations on Monday's Bears practice via Twitter:

@tcmusick: Alshon Jeffery readjusts his route and makes a great leaping catch along the sideline. Tons of ability, next step is consistency.

@kfishbain: Let's just say that Bears rookie RT Jordan Mills is probably learning a lot from Corey Wootton today.

@tcmusick: Mel Tucker loudly reminding his players on D to try to get the ball out. Lovie would approve.

@tcmusick: Bears working on onside kicks (sans contact) during practice.

@tcmusick: Peanut Tillman with an interception during 7-on-7 drills. Michael Bush couldn't make the catch, Tillman with the pick.

@tcmusick: My man @kfishbain says P.J. Somethingorother was not the center for at least one of those botched snaps. Like Sammy Sosa, I apologi.

@tcmusick: At least three shotgun snaps in the grass today. Roberto Garza with one, P.J. Lonergan with a couple.

@tcmusick: Jay Cutler fires a strike to Alshon Jeffery, who makes the catch in stride on a slant route. Cleaning up Friday's mistakes.

@Bears_Insider: Bears have a press conference at 145 today with Olivet Nazarene University. Likely announcing more years of camp here in Bourbonnais.

@tcmusick:  Fendi Onobun is open in the end zone, and this time he makes the catch. #Bears practice off to a solid start.

@kfishbain: No INT to start Bears practice today!!! Complete pass to Forte. Mills and Long with first-team O-line.

@kfishbain: Today's Bears M.A.S.H unit update: Armando Allen, Jonathan Scott, Harvey Unga not practicing. Joe Anderson is back.
