Bears OL Teven Jenkins began practicing with the Chicago’s second-team offense towards the end of OTAs, and that continued throughout the club’s mandatory minicamp, per Adam Jahns of The Athletic. Meanwhile, Braxton Jones has been operating as the first-string left tackle, with 2021 fifth-rounder Larry Borom at RT.

Jenkins, the No. 39 overall pick of the 2021 draft, was originally viewed as a future fixture on the blindside. Unfortunately, he was forced to undergo back surgery last August, and he ultimately appeared in just six games (two starts) as a rookie.
