Chicago Bears offensive tackle Teven Jenkins finally returned to training camp on Saturday. Jenkins had mysteriously missed seven straight practices because of an “undisclosed injury,” and there was a report that the Bears were taking trade calls on the youngster. There were also rumors he was clashing with the new coaching staff.
Jenkins didn’t participate in full practice and only went through individual drills. He also didn’t disclose specifics about his health problems but said he’s close to being fully ready to go.
“It feels really good and I’m not having any discomfort right now, so it’s really good,” Teven Jenkins said after going through Saturday’s practice, per ESPN’s Courtney Cronin. “If I had to give myself a percent, probably around 90% and it’s just about working my body back into the feeling of football back again and getting back to that 100% of ‘this is football’ and get ready to go.”
