BOURBONNAIS — Outside linebacker Pernell McPhee was placed on the physically unable to perform list late Wednesday because doctors found an ‘irregularity’ in his right knee during his physical, coach John Fox said. He did not attempt his conditioning test later in the day.

He started last year’s camp on the PUP list with a left knee injury.

“I don’t want to speculate what it was,” Fox said. “But obviously it was something that was bothering him a little bit to mention it in the physical — and they’re still evaluating.”

McPhee remained on campus at Olivet Nazarene University.

“I think mentally, he’s fine,” Fox said. “He’s still confident, now it’s just about getting him healthy.”

Nose tackle Eddie Goldman sat out practice Thursday at training camp in Bourbonnais.

Coach John Fox said that tackle became dehydrated and couldn’t finish his conditioning test on Wednesday, so they sat him out on practice.

He reported to camp at 315 pound, which pleased the Bears coaches. Goldman will return to practice Friday.
