WR Iglesias Back on the Field After Quad Injury

Scout.com reports that Juaquin Iglesias has been having issues with his quad, but he was finally able to get back on the field:

Bears wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias was impressive during the offseason program and hoping to make a big splash in training camp, although he came up lame with a quad injury and hasn’t been able to go through a full workout for several days. Sick of observing as Devin Hester, Johnny Knox and Devin Aromashodu stole the limelight in Bourbonnais, Iglesias simply couldn’t sit out any longer.

“I finally just told the trainers, ‘I’m coming out here. I’m tired of watching,'” Iglesias said after Sunday’s morning mini practice. “It’s frustrating on the sideline. I don’t want to come out here and rush it, but I’m tired of watching. As a competitor, I want to get out there. I’m trying to fight for a spot, so I can’t do it from the sideline.” While he may have to wait a bit before he gets any first-team reps with Jay Cutler at the controls, any damage he can do working with Caleb Hanie under center is still beneficial to Iglesias’ development.

“It makes a difference when you’re on the same page as Jay,” Iglesias admitted, “but if it doesn’t happen, I’ve to look at it like Caleb is my quarterback. When I’m in there, whoever is in there throwing me the ball is my quarterback. And the way I feel, it don’t matter who throws it to me. Jay, Caleb – I feel like I’m going to catch it. So that’s just how I look at it. It doesn’t really matter who it’s coming from to me.” Iglesias went on to say that it’s only natural for him to try to do too much in an effort to get the coaching staff’s attention again, but he can’t afford to injure himself further and possibly miss more time.
