Bears safeties Chris Conte, Ryan Mundy in limbo

Two safeties returned to practice, but their roles remained in limbo. Chris Conte had limited work Monday, his first day back since suffering a concussion Aug. 22 against the Seahawks. Presumed starter Ryan Mundy returned, too, after suffering a head gash in the same game. Coach Marc Trestman said the Bears will wait and see before naming starters, suggesting Wednesday as the earliest date. Conte played only 22 preseason snaps — all in Seattle — before the...

Bears coaches saw enough to make a call on concussed Chris Conte

Chris Conte played “fast” and “aggressive” with “no hesitation” before suffering a concussion on Friday, defensive coordinator Mel Tucker said Monday. Despite having played only part of one game after recovering from shoulder surgery, the Bears have seen enough to be able to judge the safety. “With the time available, we felt like that was enough to make a clean evaluation on him,” Tucker said. Coach Marc Trestman called Conte “day-to-day,”...

Chris Conte still out, but others return

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears safety Chris Conte missed practice Monday as he goes through the NFL's return-to-play concussion protocol, while Jared Allen (shoulder), Eben Britton (hamstring), Kyle Fuller (ankle) and Isaiah Frey (hamstring) returned to workouts inside the Walter Payton Center as the team preps for the exhibition finale at Cleveland. Conte suffered a concussion during the second half of the club's loss Friday at Seattle.

Chris Conte out to silence critics

Safety Chris Conte just wants to read and react, cover and tackle. His plan is to zone in on plays and zone out last season’s woes. “It was anything you can imagine,” Conte said of the threats he received on social media. “It’s unfortunate that my family and everybody had to see that stuff. It’s just the way the world is.” Conte’s first chance to shut that world up comes Friday against the Seattle Seahawks. It’ll be Conte’s first game since he...

Chris Conte ready for preseason debut

LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Nearly five months since undergoing shoulder surgery, Chicago Bears free safety Chris Conte will make his preseason debut Friday night against the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. “I feel good. I’m excited to go out there and play,” Conte said Wednesday. “I can’t wait to get back out there on the field and play football.” Conte, along with fellow safety Craig Steltz, were activated off the physically unable to perform list on Aug.

Bears hopeful for Conte return in Seattle

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman praised the preseason work of veteran Ryan Mundy on Friday, but refused to anoint any starters at safety in the aftermath of the team’s 20-19 victory over Jacksonville. That’s likely because former starting free safety Chris Conte has yet to participate in live action since being elevated off the PUP list, although that could change next Friday when the Bears travel to Seattle to play in the all-important third preseason game versus the defending Super Bowl champions.

Chris Conte’s cause hurt by injury

Safety Chris Conte’s bid to regain his starting job became more onerous Thursday. After practicing for three consecutive days, Conte was inactive for the exhibition game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday. Coach Marc Trestman said earlier this week that he hoped Conte would be able to play but that the final decision belonged to the training staff. Conte had surgery on his right shoulder in March and practiced for the first time Sunday. Conte said Tuesday...

Marc Trestman hopes Chris Conte can play Thursday

BOURBONNAIS — One day after receiving a rousing cheer when he intercepted a pass in practice, safety Chris Conte slipped on the wet grass on a pass play that resulted in a touchdown Tuesday. Fans grumbled loudly enough for one veteran to suggest, a bit too loudly, that the hecklers be quiet. After a forgettable 2013, followed by surgery on his right shoulder and a return to the active roster Sunday, Conte is being measured by the play. Coach Marc Trestman hopes...

BOURBONNAIS — After rehabbing his right shoulder and some self-described soul-searching in the offseason, Bears safety Chris Conte came up with a list. “It’s a lot of things that I want to do, a lot of people I want to prove wrong,” Conte said. “So there’s a lot of goals I have, a lot of things I’m looking forward to.” Conte practiced with his teammates for the first time Sunday since undergoing surgery in late March for a lingering issue that...
