Eberflus’ coaching ethos is built on hustle and intensity, and his practices reflect that.
Harry left practice Saturday with an injury to his left leg or ankle suffered on the first play of team drills.
Pringle has been one of a few receivers in the mix for the No. 2 role behind Darnell Mooney.
“I’m a loyal type of guy,” Jenkins said. “The Chicago Bears drafted me, so I’m going to stay with the Chicago Bears until whenever it is.”
The Bears’ offensive coordinator said Jenkins, who has been the subject of trade speculation and missed his seventh consecutive practice Friday, will battle for a starting job when he returns from the unspecified injury.
They’ll be banking on Kmet being one of their top pass catchers this season, and if he proves he’s a game-changing tight end, that would answer a big question about the Bears’ future.
The Bears’ new offensive coordinator, Luke Getsy, is learning to read Fields. The best view comes in the film room after a tough practice. And there have been plenty of those thus far in training camp.
You can freak out or you can hope. Neither answer is wrong.
Luke Getsy — the Bears offensive coordinator who was first Aaron Rodgers’ position coach — joked that he had nothing to do with the Packers quarterback’s South American trips to use psychedelics.
The 5-11, 200-pound Illinois State alum was drafted in the fifth round by the Bengals four years ago.
Checking on where the Bears stand and where they appear to be headed.

The Sun-Times’ Patrick Finley analyzes what he has seen from the Bears.
“I masked it for a while,” Montgomery said as he revealed his battle Wednesday. He was relieved, though, that “it’s on the up-and-up now, and I’m grateful and I’m blessed that God brought me here.”
With a first-year offensive coordinator, a second-year quarterback and a new cast of supporting players, even small signs of progress are hard to see. But it’s just part of the process, Fields said.
Coach Matt Eberflus repeated his stance that Jenkins was day-to-day, saying merely that he will “be back when he’s back.”
Matt Eberflus will play his first-teamers, including quarterback Justin Fields, against the Chiefs.
The early reviews on Poles’ top three picks are promising, and fifth-rounder Braxton Jones has emerged as the leader at left tackle.
Johnson has already had a wild ride as he enters his third season. But this is his time.
The All-Pro defensive end is in a “ramp-up” phase after sitting out the offseason program. But it won’t take him long to get back in the swing of things. “I kind of think I’m pretty much caught up,” he said.
This isn’t Mitch Trubisky being tormented by Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks. This is Justin Fields facing a watered-down defense without its leader and best player, Roquan Smith. And it has happened on consecutive days.
The competition at left tackle will most likely come down to fifth-rounder Braxton Jones and veteran Riley Reiff.
The Bears are getting one veteran back on the practice field — though it’s not Roquan Smith.
