Kreutz among those absent from Bears' OTA

June, 9, 2010

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Only a handful of players were absent during the Bears' organized team activity Wednesday at Halas Hall.

Among those not participating included: center Olin Kreutz, punter Brad Maynard, running back Garrett Wolfe and tight end Brandon Manumaleuna.

Manumaleuna was seen running on a side field with a member of the medical staff, as the tight end is still recovering from offseason knee surgery. Kreutz (Achilles) and Maynard (hip) are battling their way back from injuries, but both are expected to be ready for the start of training camp in late July.

Veteran linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa dressed for the workout, but did not appear to participate in any team drills.

Rookie cornerback Joshua Moore suffered a right thigh contusion during a redzone 7-on-7 drill, but is expected to be fine.
