Observations from 1st hour of Tuesday's Bears practice

For the final practice in Bourbonnais, the Bears are not in full pads – they had been padded up for every practice since July 28.

In terms of injuries, Harvey Unga, Armando Allen, Patrick Mannelly and D.J. Williams are all out. Earl Bennett, Henry Melton and Jonathan Scott are not present.

Like we saw in last week's practice prior to the preseason game, the Bears are working from the sideline during team drills and putting an emphasis in practicing getting on and off the field efficiently.
