5 defensive players to watch in Bears second preseason game
1. Deon Bush
Another player who stood out like a sore thumb on Thursday was Deon Bush. He was just on another level from most of his competition. He looked fast and physical as he swarmed around the field and laid hits on skill players.

There was buzz on Bush coming away from OTAs. That buzz seemed to emerge again in training camp. Now, through one game, the buzz has persisted into the preseason. Yes, it was the Hall of Fame game. Still, how can Bush continue to ride the momentum?
He is not going to start again but may see the field early and into the second half. If Bush can continue to show physicality and a knack for being around the ball, there could be a role for him.
A lot of teams are moving more to a three-safety look. If Bush can continue to impress, he will be apart of that look. Do they show us that at all, or is Bush still in show-and-prove time? We will find out as Adrian Amos, and Eddie Jackson will finally see the field.
