Ep. 225: Training Camp Daily: Stock Up, stock down after five practices
JJ Stankevitz and Cam Ellis share their thoughts after the "first chunk" of training camp concludes. So, after five practices, who's gotten off to a strong start? And who's looking to improve after an off day on Wednesday?
Adam Shaheen has missed three-straight days of practice with a lower-back issue (1:00), is it time to be concerned about his multiple injury problems in his short career? On the positive side, the kicking competition has been tight-- in a good way (03:15). However, one missed kick did get a kid to yell, "Parkey!" (04:05) Could the Bears' future kicker still be on another roster (06:05)?
Emmanuel Hall is also dealing with nagging injury problems, which was his biggest knock heading into the draft (07:40). Another WR fighting for a roster spot, Javon Wims, has impressed by catching seemingly everything thrown his way (09:35). Plus, how Allen Robinson has helped Wims during camp.
It may not be fair, but for the sake of having a third stock down, Bradley Sowell's transition to tight end hasn't gone perfectly (12:20). Meanwhile, Mike Davis has looked great running the ball, and has already started to develop a good rapport with Trubisky catching the ball (14:30). The final stock up goes to Allen Robinson's role in the offense as he's getting a lot of targets and the Bears are clearly trying to get the ball in his hands (15:30).
Finally, JJ reveals the jersey of the day (17:15).
