Bears rookie WR Dazz Newsome activated from PUP list, returns to practice in limited role

Newsome suffered a shoulder injury during rookie minicamp earlier in the summer.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- Bears rookie receiver Dazz Newsome on Monday was activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list, the team announced.

Newsome will begin working in training camp in a limited role, two months after he suffered a shoulder injury in rookie minicamp. Bears coach Matt Nagy is eager to see how Newsome adjusts to the speed of the NFL game in practice, especially from a mental aspect.

"Things are a lot faster," Nagy said. "He’s a great kid and he’s got a great mindset. I’m impressed with him being able to get back here because that was hard when he landed on that shoulder. So, we’ll just take it day by day. He’s got the want."

A sixth-round pick of the Bears this year, Newsome had 54 receptions, 684 receiving yards and six receiving touchdown at North Carolina in 2020.

The Bears practiced Monday without veteran safety Tashaun Gipson, who suffered a groin injury in warmups. Safety Eddie Jackson (hamstring) remains on the non-football injury list. Rookie offensive tackle Teven Jenkins (back) remains sidelined, though Nagy said he's trending in the right direction.

The Bears will hold a practice Tuesday morning at Soldier Field.
