Stephen Paea tests ankle before preseason finale

SHARE Stephen Paea tests ankle before preseason finale

Bears defensive tackle Stephen Paea, whose strong preseason was derailed by an ankle injury, did some running under the watchful eye of a medical official at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

Paea was competing with Matt Toeaina for the starting defensive tackle spot next to Henry Melton. At the start of camp, Toeaina had a cast on his right hand, and Paea — looking strong and explosive — got off to a strong start. But, against the Denver Broncos in the preseason opener, Paea injured his ankle.

There’s hope that he’ll be ready to resume practice next week.
