Wright, the Bears' top draft choice in April, appeared to lose his footing and almost ended up doing the splits. He then gingerly jogged off the field to receive treatment from the teams' training staff and remained out for the rest of the workout.
"We think he'll be OK," Bears coach Lovie Smith said.
Working primarily with the second team at free safety, Wright's play caught the attention of Smith in the first few days of camp.
"I like the way he's played the football," Smith said of Wright, a third-round draft pick out of Florida. "He's been around the ball quite a bit. He has good hands and is eager and excited about being here. He's a good football player. But we need to get him back out on the football field because there's good competition at the safety position."
In other health related news, defensive tackle Marcus Harrison failed to finish practice for the second consecutive day. Harrison reported to training camp overweight last summer and battled through tonsillitis this offseason that sidelined him for 10 days.
"You can say the heat [is why Harrison couldn't finish the workout]," Smith said. "He's having a little bit of trouble with that. Nothing major for Marcus; we just held him out. He's a little dehydrated, [but] should be ready to go the next time we practice."
