Chicago Bears Training Camp Rumblings: Edge Rusher


How have the Chicago Bears looked at the edge rusher position so far in training camp?

Edge Rusher is by far the Chicago Bears most questionable position. How has the group looked just one week into camp? Remember that while these notes can guide us into the first preseason game, a lot can change between now and the season.

Leonard Floyd

Floyd looks completely healthy which is huge considering when he had suffered his injury. He has taken a couple of scheduled off days, but when he has been on the field, he has been a full go.

Even with the ACL concern, Floyd is the least of their concerns at this spot.

Aaron Lynch

Aaron Lynch made it through one practice before being sidelined with a hamstring injury. He still has plenty of time to get healthy, but the clock is ticking. He missed time at OTAs and mini camp, and has an injury prone background. His arrow is down in a huge way.

Sam Acho

Acho has been getting the majority of the first team reps with Lynch on the pine. We know what Acho is and he has shown up in shape and looking like the same player.

Kylie Fitts

Kylie Fitts has been the name to keep an eye on. The athletic pass rusher caught the eye of Matt Nagy and received a call out from him after the first week of practice. We all know that Fitts has upside. The question is health.

Isaiah Irving

Irving has had a strong week as well. He has stepped in and done well in individual drills, and has gained some steam. However, that has come with some downs.

Kasim Edebali

Edebali is a sleeper pass rusher who has not made any noise. He finished the week on the sideline nursing an injury. Fitts and Irving have separated from Edebali at the very least this week.
