Chicago Bears Training Camp Dates, Schedule & Location 2022
Teams across the NFL are preparing to ramp up for the 2022 regular season with the start of training camp. Of course, the Chicago Bears will be one of the squads to take the field as the preseason nears.
Here's everything Bears fans need to know about training camp this year.
When Does Chicago Bears Training Camp Start?
Each team has two separate start dates for training camp, as rookies are often required to report a few days before veterans. Cornerback Kyler Gordon and the rest of Chicago's NFL newbies will report on Saturday, July 23.
Then, on Tuesday, July 26, the Bears' veterans are mandated to report for training camp. This gives vets only a few weeks to prepare for the team's first preseason game on Aug. 13.

Chicago opens its preseason schedule on Saturday, Aug. 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bears will then play again on Aug. 18 (at the Seattle Seahawks) and Aug. 27 (vs. the Cleveland Browns) before the regular season begins.

Bears Training Camp News
One issue that needs to be solved during training camp is the depth behind wide receiver Darnell Mooney in the passing attack. Quarterback Justin Fields is going to need one of N'Keal Harry, Byron Pringle, or Velus Jones Jr. to step up if he wants any chance of leading this team back to the playoffs.
This is a rookie class that has an opportunity to make an immediate impact on defense, too. Gordon could rise to a starting spot with a strong showing in camp. The same thing can be said about safety Jaquan Brisker, who racked up 14 pass breakups in three college seasons at Penn State (34 games).
