Training camp is officially underway for the Chicago Bears, as veterans reported to Halas Hall on Tuesday. Rookies and quarterbacks started arriving back on Saturday. The first practice of the summer is scheduled for Wednesday.

This will mark the third time the Bears will hold training camp at Halas Hall after 18 years practicing at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, which left many fans feeling disappointed about the move.

As the Bears kick off camp, we’ve gathered everything you need to know about training camp, from the schedule to fan attendance to our training camp coverage to our early 53-man roster predictions.
