Tracking Bears quarterback Justin Fields during training-camp practices:

Another light day gave Fields few opportunities to improve on a disappointing practice Wednesday. When he got them, he was sharper than in his previous practice. In a team drill, Fields threw a touchdown pass to running back D’Onta Foreman in the flat and another to receiver Chase Claypool over the middle.

Fields was part of a bizarre series later in practice. On one play, he threw a pass over the middle to Claypool, who touched the ball, slipped and accidentally kicked the ball into the air. It landed in the arms of tight end Robert Tonyan for a completion.

On the next play, Fields threw a pass to the left for Tonyan. It bounced off both his hands and kept going toward the end zone, where it landed in Claypool’s arms.

Fields later threw an interception to cornerback Josh Blackwell but was better in a two-minute drill, throwing completions to five receivers on a drive in which the Bears had no timeouts.
