Chicago Bears Pro Bowl defensive tackle Henry Melton has started to run as he recovers from a concussion, an encouraging sign with the season opener approaching. Coach Marc Trestman said Melton ran Monday and will do so again on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Bears play Cleveland in the fourth and final preseason game on Thursday, with the season opener against Cincinnati on Sept. 8. Melton was injured in the first preseason game at Carolina on Aug. 9.

Trestman said he met with the medical staff on Monday and is day to day. Middle linebacker D.J. Williams (right calf) did some running.
