He didn't say if he was hurt in the team's July 27 practice, or if he is still recovering from surgery. However, he said that he expects to be back at 100% health in ‘a few days'.

After Saturday's practice, Jenkins stated that it felt good and that there was no discomfort. “If I had a percent to give myself, it would be around 90%. It's about getting my body back into the football feeling and then getting ready to go.

Jenkins stated that he was in the training room the past nine days, and that his absence was due to ‘the improvement of my health'.

His absence was most noticeable at Halas Hall, amid trade rumors about the second-round pick. Jenkins responded to a Twitter user concerned about his location to tell him to ‘not trust everything you read' due to reports of mutual malcontent between Jenkins and the franchise.

Jenkins stated, “Just one, mainly that I was clashing avec coaches.” Jenkins said, “It was completely false and I wanted to let everybody know that you don’t have to believe every word someone says.” It's the way it is.”

Coach Matt Eberflus refused to discuss Jenkins' absence during practice and instead referred to the tackle as “day to day”. Luke Getsy, offensive coordinator, stated that Jenkins was present at team meetings and he is ‘all in.

Eberflus and Getsy both believe that Jenkins is in direct competition for a spot on the offensive line. They have communicated this message to Jenkins.

“Really, it's the same for everyone: Go out and compete. Everything's open. Dive in,'” Eberflus said. He's great at meetings, as we've already said. He's very attentive. He pays attention. He has been back at the walk-throughs, looking at the plays and understanding the roles. He's been doing well.

Ryan Pace, the former Bears general manager, selected Jenkins as the 39th overall draft pick in 2021. Jenkins had to have back surgery before his rookie season. He was able to take only 157 snaps at left tackle.

Jenkins expressed his belief in the Bears organization, and said that he expects to be there during the regular season. Jenkins said, “For myself, I'm a loyal kind of guy.” “The Chicago Bears drafted me, so I'm going with them until it happens.”

Jenkins was replaced at left tackle by a rookie fifth rounder Braxton Jones During OTAs, Jenkins was moved to right-hand tackle with the second team. Jenkins was given reps as a swing-tackle on his first day of training camp and stated that he is open to the possibility of moving to guard.

Jenkins stated, “I'm open to playing wherever they want me.” Jenkins stated, “I want to be in Chicago so that I can play wherever they need me.”

N'Keal Harry A left ankle/foot injury occurred during the first game of team drills. He was helped off the field and assisted by his teammates and trainers.

Eberflus explained that he had only seen him descend. “I watched the play, and I don’t really know much about it. We will do an evaluation, and once that is done we can send it to you. If it's a longer situation, we will let you know. We'll also tell you if it's day to day.

Byron Pringle The rookie Velus Jones Jr. On Saturday, there were no participants. Eberflus said that Pringle is a top-rated free agent signing for the Bears. There is no timetable for his return, but the team is optimistic that it will not prevent him from playing for the regular season.

“No., no. Eberflus stated that he didn't believe so. It's more than day-today so I can only say that, but there's no timetable for me to comment. We are hopeful it will be a positive situation for us.

Jones Jr. is “day to day,” according to Eberflus. He addressed concerns about the team's wide receiver depth following the absence of three players for the No. 2, and 3. 3 broad receiver roles

Eberflus stated, “Yesh, you're always worried about that.” “You know, camp is a 90-man roster. When guys go down with soft tissue stuff or whatever, it puts pressure on other guys. They have the opportunity to help other guys. You have to remember that they have more reps. We were. That's why we are mindful.
