Iglesias misses third day of camp

August, 3, 2010
BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- Chicago Bears wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias was sidelined for a third consecutive day Tuesday after suffering a quad injury on Saturday.

"It wasn't serious at all," Iglesias said before lunch. "I knew it was just going to be a couple of days. I just tried to catch it before it started to get into the season.

“The day before [on Friday], I felt it a little bit, so when I took off running the next day I could tell it was kind of bothering me. I don't really know how it happened, but I just wanted to catch it early."

Iglesias, a 2009 third-round selection, was active for only one game his rookie year. He is currently fighting for a roster spot at wide receiver.

Other players not practicing Tuesday were: Major Wright (groin injury); Harvey Unga (hamstring injury); Chris Harris (sprained back); Hunter Hillenmeyer (undisclosed reasons) and Marcus Harrison (dehydration).
