Bears wide receiver N’Keal Harry sprained his ankle during Saturday’s practice and will see a specialist to find out how long he’s out. according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Harry sprained his ankle from linebacker Nicholas Morrow after receiving a screen pass during team drills. He couldn’t put any weight on his ankle as he left the field.
Bears coach Matt Eberflus did not elaborate on the injury when he spoke to reporters after practice Saturday.
“I just saw him come down” said Eberflush. “I saw the play and I really don’t know much from there. Obviously we’ll do the evaluation and then once I get it we can get it back to you. And if it’s a bigger situation, we’ll let you know what it is. If it’s day by day, we’ll say that too.”
Harry was traded from the Patriots to the Bears earlier this offseason, with Chicago sending a 2023 seventh-round pick to New England in exchange for the former first-round pick.

Harry was never able to get into shape with the Patriots, as he had just 57 receptions for 598 yards and four touchdowns in three seasons with the team.
Harry looked forward to the prospect of a fresh start with the Bears.
“I just feel like it suits me,” Harry told reporters in late July. “Walking into the building, even when I walked into the building, I felt a lot of good vibes. Everyone here is excited. I’m looking forward to the season and it’s just a reset for me. Happy reset.”
