Quick update before the final evening practice of training camp and the final practice open to the public:
*** Wide receivers coach Darryl Drake wants to get a long look at Marty Booker and Devin Hester at the beginning of the Seattle game Saturday night. The plan was to see more of them last week at Kansas City, but the Chiefs opening 16-play drive that chewed up half of the first quarter made some of the best laid plans go ... well, you know where.
According to Drake, Booker got only 12 snaps in the opener and it's a tricky thing as he is working so many bodies in with the ones.
"I don't need to see a whole lot of them,'' Drake said. "I just need to make sure they are getting in there early and doing some things."
Rashied Davis, Mark Bradley, Brandon Lloyd, Earl Bennett, Mike Hass and Brandon Rideau figure into the mix also. Just like the Bears have to eventually choose a starting quarterback, they need to pick starting receivers too.
*** Running back Kevin Jones made some strong moves in practice Tuesday night but he will not be making any moves on the field Saturday. The plan is for Jones to sit out the game. He could get his first true test Aug. 21 when San Francisco visits.
*** No player looks forward to a flight of more than four hours for a preseason game, but linebacker Lance Briggs sees the plus side of it already.
"I am actually kind of excited because now I'm in first class,'' he said. "It's going to be rough for some of the younger guys because they're going to be three to a [row], but I'm going to enjoy this trip."
Briggs was asked if Pro Bowl trips help you make the move up front where mostly linemen sit.
"That could help. I am going on Year Six now so you're definitely pulling the vet card now so you get comfortable seating,''
*** Ex-Bears cornerback Ade Jimoh, who was placed on injured reserve after six games last season, has been signed by the New England Patriots. He is considered a strong special teams player.
