Chicago Bears Preseason Game #2: Bubble Watch

2 of 2

RB Ka’Deem Carey – Got off to a good start with 34 yards rushing in the first game of the preseason (4.9 YPC), but has his work cut out for him. Carey is competing with veteran Jacquizz Rodgers, rookie Jeremy Langford (who was drafted by the new regime) and Senorise Perry (who is one of the Bears best special teams players).

OLB David Bass – Led the Bears in snaps last game but had nothing to show for it with just 1 QB pressure in 54 snaps. On paper Bass was one of the few Bears who seemed to be better off in a 3-4 scheme, but he was ineffective in week 1 and needs to prove he can get to the QB from the stand-up OLB position.

WR Josh Bellamy – He’s no longer eligible for the practice squad so this is a make or break preseason for Bellamy. He had a disappointing game last week with a couple bonehead moves, a lack of urgency, and a couple drops. With the injury to rookie Kevin White, the Bears are thin at WR so Bellamy has a shot to make the team. Bellamy still needs to play well though as there will be plenty of talented receivers available on the waiver wire by final cuts.

CB Al Louis-Jean – He’s one of the youngest players on the team and showed some promise in limited snaps last season, but played poorly in the Bears preseason opener and is getting strong competition from special teams ace Sherick McManis and 2nd year player Terrance Mitchell, a 7th round pick by the Cowboys in 2014. ALJ needs to impress the new regime tonight to get back in the mix for the Bears 4th-5th corner jobs.
