Marquess Wilson was locked into the number three receiver spot until he got injured. From what I could see, he was really molding into the role and would have been another tall target with good hands for Jay Cutler to throw to. He hasn’t been put on IR, so you might see him in the second half of the season. The Bears tried working with the receivers that they already had on the roster, but they felt it was necessary to look outside and sign Santonio Holmes. I am hoping we will see Holmes play on Friday, but who knows if he even has a playbook yet.

"Any under the radar young bucks looking at a roster spot that we should watch for? I don’t much pay attention to other rosters unless I have a vested interest in preseason."

The Bears are really trying to solidify the backup running back position, but so far it has been hard to tell who is the best one on the roster. Nobody has shined as running back so far in the preseason, including Matt Forte. I’m not that worried about Matt Forte, but I would like to see one of the backups stand out. I do think that Ka’Deem Carey will be the number two back and that they will keep Jordan Lynch on the practice squad to develop and use for the scout team. Other than that, depending on special teams needs, I foresee that Shaun Draughn will be the third back and the Bears will probably cut Michael Ford.

"Of course once the season begins I would normally have fantasy interest, but unfortunately not doing that this year."
