Bears lose OTA practice session after violating CBA’s live-contact rules

Chicago Bears first-year coach Matt Eberflus got a slap on the wrist for his club violating rules during non-contact practices.

The Bears were docked Tuesday’s OTA session for violating live-contact rules at a practice last month, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported.

The NFL and NFLPA monitor offseason workouts to ensure non-contact practices remain as such.

Eberflus isn’t the first coach — and won’t be the last — to be docked a practice after a session got a little too rough. Just last year, former Jaguars first-year coach Urban Meyer was fined $100,000 and had a practice wiped out for violating the rules.

The Bears are finishing up their OTA workouts this week. Chicago will conduct mandatory minicamp next week to finish out their spring session.
