BOURBONNAIS — The Sun-Times’ Patrick Finley breaks down the 11th day of Bears training-camp practice:

QB update

Mike Glennon and Mitch Trubisky traded interceptions Tuesday.

On a play-action pass out of his own end zone, Trubisky slipped as he threw down the right sideline toward Tanner Gentry. The ball landed in cornerback Cre’Von LeBlanc’s arms.

Mere minutes later, Glennon sailed a pass to tight end Zach Miller and was picked off by safety Quintin Demps.

“I mean, those guys are all resilient,” coach John Fox said. “I think you’ve got to turn the page. You don’t want to spend too much time on negative things, so we pretty much coach them to turn the page and move on and learn from them.”


Deonte Thompson has struggled with drops early in camp but made a nice catch in the corner of the end zone on a throw by Mark Sanchez. . . . Safety Deiondre’ Hall picked off Trubisky at the end of camp. The Bears like his versatility on the back end of their roster. If he can play safety and cornerback, that saves them a roster spot to use elsewhere. Coordinator Vic Fangio said he has been ‘‘behind . . . but does have some potential back there as a safety.” . . . Florida State alum Freddie Stevenson, a rookie fullback, knocked Kyle Fuller back on a sweet block. . . . Sherrick McManis forced a fumble that was recovered by Deon Bush.

Mitch Trubisky clearly isn’t the Bears’ best QB — yet — but that’s OK

WR Tanner Gentry just one Bears undrafted rookie with a lot to prove
