One of my biggest concerns heading into training camp has been the secondary. The questions surrounding their depth at cornerback are compounded by the cast of characters at the safety position. Things seemed like they might settle down a little bit when the Bears traded to bring back Chris Harris and invested their top draft pick in Major Wright. In the early going, it looks like the Bears have to investigate Plans B and C with Chris Harris and Major Wright going down with injuries.
The good news is that neither injury appears to be too serious, but they only go to strengthen my point about concerns at the position. Company man Larry Mayer will put a silver lining on the dark cloud by telling everyone how the down time for potential starters Harris and Wright mean added snaps for guys like Steltz, Bullocks and Afalava, but with such a desperate need for solidifying the position, the Bears can ill-afford starters missing valuable reps.
