LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- The Bears on Thursday broke for six weeks of summer believing they will arrive at training camp at full health.

The Bears concluded the offseason program at Halas Hall with three injuries of note, but coach Matt Nagy believes each player will be healed by the time his team reports to Olivet Nazarene in late July.

Veteran tight end Trey Burton is the biggest question mark as he recovers from an April procedure for a sports hernia. Burton will spend the next six weeks rehabilitating at Halas Hall. The hope is that he can practice in full at training camp.

"From where we're at right now, we feel really good that he's going to be able to do that," Nagy said of Burton. "Now, I don't want to make 100-percent predictions that that's going to happen, but I feel good about it. I think he does."

Second-year receiver Anthony Miller also is on track to be practicing with the Bears at training camp. Miller has been held out of the offseason program while his surgically repaired left shoulder heals. He experienced multiple dislocations to that shoulder last season, the first of which came in September.

While Miller hasn't been practicing, his presence has been felt, as he's been near Nagy as the team works.

"He's breaking my rule a little bit, because I don't like people in between the hashes," Nagy said. "That's my world. But I'm OK right now with it. He's champing at the bit right now to get out there. He's just trying to be better."

Rookie receiver Emanuel Hall is also recovering from a sports hernia procedure. An undrafted free-agent pickup, Hall projects to be with the team for camp.

Nagy left the Bears' offseason program pleased with the team's near-perfect attendance. That included active participation from even the injured players.
