The Bears added four more players to their injury list after seeing 16 not participate in Saturday night’s practice at Western Township High School.

Among the 20 Bears out of Sunday’s session, linebackers Leonard Floyd and Jerrell Freeman, defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard and cornerback Tracy Porter were new on the list, per Pro Football Weekly’s Kevin Fishbain.

Guard Kyle Long, running backs Jeremy Langford and Senorise Perry, linebackers Danny Trevathan and Nick Kwiatkowski, cornerbacks Bryce Callahan, Kyle Fuller, Jacoby Glenn and De’Vante Bausby were also out.

With their top corners banged up, the Bears have six guys on the roster with a combined seven starts in the NFL.

On top of that, tight ends Ben Braunecker and Tony Moeaki, wide receivers Deonte Thompson and Derek Keaton, defensive lineman Cornelius Washington and safety Deon Bush were inactive.

That’s a long list of players especially with the first set of cuts coming on Tuesday, August 30 from 90 to 75. Don’t forget tight end Zach Miller and wide receiver Eddie Royal are also working their ways back from concussions as well.

First with Floyd.

Porter and Freeman were given a veteran’s day off and Bullard was not there due to personal reasons, Bears head coach John Fox said after practice.

Langford (foot) and Long (shoulder) both didn’t participate in practice but good news came for Langford as he shed his walking boot. As for Long, Fox said on Saturday that his shoulder is a minor injury.

The Bears have a day off on Monday before getting back to the practice grind on Tuesday at Halas Hall.
