Standout rookie safety Major Wright’s sensational camp took a wrong turn earlier today at Bears practice in Bourbonnais, as the former Florida Gator suffered a non-contact injury.
While backpedaling in pass coverage, Wright slipped and apparently pulled a groin muscle. The young defensive back proceeded to get up slowly and walk very gingerly to the sideline where he received assistance from one the staff trainers. Following Monday’s session, coach Lovie Smith declined to provide any details on the injury.
Prior to his setback, Wright made his presence felt on more than one occasion by using his instincts to jump routes, deflect passes and even intercepting a Caleb Hanie throw that had many teammates shouting, “Did you see that?”
Stay tuned for more updates from Bears camp.
