Bears players to report for training camp at Halas Hall on July 28: report

It’s a slightly later start date than usual, which fits with rumblings that the NFL intends to cancel some preseason games.

The Bears will report to training camp slightly later than last year, limiting the amount of practice time leading up to the 2020 season. The NFL and the players’ union agreed to a July 28 report date today, NFL Network reported.

The Bears reported July 25 last year in Bourbonnais. They announced in January they will be holding training camp exclusively at Halas Hall for the foreseeable future.

With precautionary procedures in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, it’s likely training camp will begin more gradually than in the past.

There have been multiple reports that the NFL is considering shortening the preseason this season, and the combination of a later start and a slower ramp-up period puts the Bears’ Aug. 15 home game against the Browns in question.

The league and the NFLPA have not finalized health-related protocols, including compliance with social distancing guidelines and coronavirus testing.
