Wake-up call: Sixth day of practice

Every day of Chicago Bears training camp, we'll have a wake-up call that previews the day ahead.

9 a.m. CT -- Bears practice with full pads (open to the public).

Approx. 11:30 a.m. CT -- Marc Trestman and select players are available to the media coming off the practice field.

An NFL officiating crew is expected to be present at practice on Thursday. Each summer a group of officials travels to Bourbonnais to work one or two practices to help give players a better feel for what would be called a penalty in a live game. The officials also meet privately with the entire team for a question and answer session. Again, the weather is expected to be ideal, plan to arrive early. An estimated crowd of 10,500 watched Wednesday’s session. ESPN 1000’s “Carmen and Jurko Show” will broadcast live from 10 a.m. CT – 2 p.m. CT from one of the white tents adjacent to the practices fields near the entrance to the complex.

Among the storylines we’ll be following:

• An update on safety. Is Danny McCray on the first-team?

• The latest on cornerback Tim Jennings’ quad injury.

• Depth on the offensive line with Eben Britton (hamstring) day-to-day.
