The Chicago Bears are back at Halas Hall during the beginning stages of training camp.

The Bears announced several roster moves on Wednesday, including standout defensive back Eddie Jackson being placed on the non-football injury list.

Offensive lineman Germain Ifedi was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list with a hip flexor issue.

In other injury news, linebacker Robert Quinn (back) and defensive lineman Bilal Nichols (toe) were limited today.

The other roster move was Bears tight end Jake Butt was placed on the retirement list.

Best of luck to the 26-year-old on the next step in his life.
