Chicago Bears backup quarterback Caleb Hanie walked off the practice field Monday visibly upset and declined to talk to reporters.
His frustration no doubt stemmed from surrendering his second-team practice reps to rookie Nathan Enderle during the 2 1/2-hour session. In fact, Hanie didn’t get any reps at all during 7-on-7 and full-team drills.
Lovie Smith explained the decision after practice.
"After you play a game, your reps change a little bit based on what you’ve done,’’ Smith said. "We got Nathan Enderle a couple more reps today with the 2s. He did some good things in the game. He hadn’t really gotten a lot of reps in practice right now."
