Training camp is only in its fourth day and already one of the biggest question marks about this year’s Bears team — the safety position — just became even more bleak.
Over the weekend, Chris Harris suffered a back injury that isn’t believed to be serious but will nonetheless hinder his playing time with the starting defense. As reported by Sean Jensen of the Sun-Times, rookie Major Wright suffered a groin injury in Monday’s practice. Harris and Wright have been the projected starters at safety for quite some time, so to have them both nursing injuries this early in the season doesn’t inspire much confidence.
Harris’ back injury doesn’t seem like it’ll take much time to heal. Although he doesn’t want to sit out practice, taking time to heat it and give it rest should clear it up. Wright’s injury is a little more disconcerting as groin injuries can take a much longer time to heal and it may not be 100% for the rest of the season.
