Best play on Friday: The Bears only had a slow-paced walkthrough practice, so nothing stood out on the field, but the best news was that NT Eddie Goldman, S Deon Bush and CB Marcus Cooper all returned after missing or being limited in yesterday's first practice of camp. Goldman and Bush were both dehydrated during Wednesday's conditioning test. Cooper has been battling a tight hamstring since the offseason program.
