Chicago Bears: 5 players fighting for a job in Preseason Week Four
Hroniss Grasu has spent most his training camp and preseason on the sideline trying to get healthy. That, along with a lack of position versatility brought questions as to whether or not Grasu would be with the club at this time a month from now.
However, Grasu stepped in for James Daniels during the second half of his debut performance in Week 3 and looked like a serviceable center in the role. Right after the return of Grasu to the lineup, the Chicago Bears released Earl Watford.
This is an interesting move because it ensures that James Daniels and Eric Kush are guard depth and that the team does not want either to slide over to center. If one slid over to center, having Watford rather than Grasu would make sense. So, this likely means that the team is ready to commit to Grasu. He needs to show it to them. Expect Grasu to start next to Daniels at guard in this game. If there are no issues, expect Grasu to push himself onto the 53-man roster.
