Defensive end Corey Wootton injures hip at practice

SHARE Defensive end Corey Wootton injures hip at practice

BOURBONNAIS — Corey Wootton has looked dominant throughout training camp, whether it’s overpowering guards when he’s at defensive tackle or blowing by right tackle J’Marcus Webb when he’s at defensive end.

Big things are expected from Wootton this season, especially with his success in 2012 and Israel Idonije now longer with the Bears.  But Wootton’s impressive training camp hit a snag on Thursday when he left practice early with a hip injury.

An MRI was scheduled for Wootton, who is in a contract year, but coach Marc Trestman said the Bears’ training staff doesn’t think his injury is serious.

“Corey is day-to-day,”  Trestman said. “He’s got a ding in his hip.”

On the sidelines

Left tackle Jermon Bushrod is no longer wearing a walking boot, but he was still sidelined with a right calf strain. Linebacker D.J. Williams (right calf) was wearing a walking boot and watched practice.

Offensive tackle Jonathan Scott and defensive lineman Jamaal Anderson both sat with out with sore right knees.

Cornerback Tim Jennings was excused from practice for the second day in a row for personal reasons, while linebacker Lance Briggs was given a rest day. With Briggs sitting out, rookie Jon Bostic handled the defensive calls for the first-team defense.
