Teven Jenkins hasn’t been on the field for practice yet ahead of the 2021 season. The highly anticipated second-round draft pick has been dealing with a back injury for the entirety of training camp. He also missed the last few games if his collegiate career with a similar injury. Head coach Matt Nagy met with the media today and announced that Teven Jenkins will have back surgery today.

Nagy claims the goal is to get Jenkins back this season. This goal is unlikely for an offensive lineman considering he’s not only learning a new position, but he’s jumping to the professional level for the first time.

The anticipation for this young offensive lineman is huge. The future is bright for him also and the Bears likely won’t rush him back.

Teven Jenkins will have back surgery today, a full three weeks before the regular season begins. The details surrounding his mysterious back injury haven’t been divulged. However, if the Bears truly want to get him back in 2021, it’s possible that he would return in the second half of the season.
