Bears to practice at Patriots, announce Bourbonnais dates

The Bears' first training camp practice is July 28. (AP)

The Bears will reunite with Martellus Bennett and Shea McClellin before their second preseason game, as the team will practice Aug. 15 and 16 against the Patriots in Foxborough, Mass.

It marks the second-straight year the Bears held a joint practice before a preseason game; they travelled to Indianapolis last season before they faced the Colts. The Bears will play the Patriots at Gillette Stadium on Aug. 18.
