Bears Camp Digest: Mark Sanchez delivers the QB highlight of the day
BOURBONNAIS — The Sun-Times’ Adam L. Jahns breaks down the 10th day of Bears training-camp practice:
Monday was a humbling day for Mike Glennon and Mitch Trubisky.
Glennon’s connection with wide receiver Cam Meredith continues to be a positive, but he joined Trubisky in the “fumble-itis” department, bobbling two snaps during a two-minute drill late in practice.
Earlier during team drills, Trubisky bobbled a snap from under center. It came a play after failing to complete a handoff to running back Josh Rounds.
As part of their preparations for the preseason opener Thursday against the Broncos, the Bears spent a portion of their practice working on late-game situations.
Mark Sanchez delivered the best throw during his two-minute drill. He connected with undrafted rookie wide receiver Tanner Gentry down the sideline for 50-plus yards. Cornerback Kyle Fuller was in coverage.
Sanchez also threw a touchdown pass to tight end Adam Shaheen in a goal-line situation.
Trubisky struggled in his two-minute drill. He needed a penalty on a fourth-down play to turn his drive into a field goal by Connor Barth.
Cornerbacks Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper continued to sparkle. Amukamara got his hands on a pass from Glennon to running back Jordan Howard in the flat; Cooper knocked away a Glennon throw to running back Tarik Cohen in a goal-line situation. . . . Rookie safety Eddie Jackson made the hit of the day when he collided with Meredith on his reception over the middle during a two-minute drill.
A 10:30 a.m. practice Tuesday at Olivet Nazarene University.
