Matt Forte is penciled in as the starter and running back. Not big news, but there’s been a decent share of speculation that Chester Taylor would eclipse Forte as the starter, so it’s noteworthy that Forte and Taylor aren’t Forte/Taylor. More on the slashes later.
Perhaps the biggest surprise on the offensive side of the ball was where Dez Clark is on the depth chart. At first, I scrolled through all of the tight ends and didn’t see him listed. It’s only until I scrolled down to the H-back position where Clark is listed as the starter. It’s an interesting way that the Bears will try to keep 4 tight ends, with Kellen Davis and Rich Angulo left to battle it out for the 3rd tight end spot.
