The Chicago Sun-Times’ Adam L. Jahns breaks down the Bears’ practice Thursday night at Prospect High School.

QB update

Quarterbacks Mike Glennon, Mark Sanchez and Mitch Trubisky all had strong moments during a light practice Thursday night at Prospect High School.

Glennon’s best showing came late in practice when he completed four consecutive passes down the field off of play action to tight end Zach Miller and receivers Cam Meredith and Kevin White (two).

Trubisky, though, made the throw of day when he deftly beat a blitz during a red-zone drill with a quick throw to slot receiver Daniel Braverman for a touchdown.

Trubisky also displayed some poise during the same drill. With pressure coming, he stood strong in the pocket before firing a touchdown pass to tight end Ben Braunecker over the middle.

Sanchez connected with receiver Titus Davis for two touchdowns in red-zone drills.


There were 4,713 fans in attendance.

‘‘Kudos to all our fans,’’ coach John Fox said. ‘‘They’re great. They want a winner bad, and we’re going to try to do everything we can to give them one. We’re really pleased with the turnout.’’

Said Meredith, who played at St. Joseph in Westchester: ‘‘Coming out here and seeing everybody have a good time, it was like ‘‘Friday Night Lights’’ all over again. We had a great time. It was a fast-paced practice. We came out here and got to fly around a little bit in front of the fans.’’
