Mark Bradley kicking ass and taking names at Day 1 of Bears camp

Working with the second-team offense Friday, Bradley made two nice catches on a skinny post and on a jump ball that he wrestled away from cornerback Dante Wesley.

After being hampered by injuries in his first two NFL seasons, the key for Bradley is to remain healthy. The 2005 second-round pick missed the final nine games of his rookie season with a torn ACL and was sidelined for five contests last year with an ankle injury.

“Mark has been healthy for a while,” coach Lovie Smith told reporters Friday. “He had a great offseason. Of course you want him to carry that into training camp. The first day you noticed him. You’re asking about him, so evidently he did some good things.”
