Yesterday we went over players who have seen their stock rise over the last two weeks of Chicago Bears training camp. Now, we look at those who have seen their stock drop. Luckily for the Chicago Bears and fans, neither Andy Dalton nor Justin Fields are on this list. As the most important position in football — a position that Bears fans have never truly seen in a Chicago uniform — the quarterbacks are finally a consistent bright spot at training camp.
This week the Chicago Bears will hold two joint practices with the Miami Dolphins. The practices will be held on Wednesday and Thursday. Then, the team will follow that up with a true test on Saturday in what will be their first preseason game. They have a closed practice today due to weather damage sustained over the last two days.
The Chicago Bears have a few players whose stock dropped the last two weeks
With only three preseason games this season, it is possible that we could see starters in the first game. Knowing that Andy Dalton has yet to play in Matt Nagy’s offense, even Dalton could see some time on Saturday. Players such as Khalil Mack, Allen Robinson and Robert Quinn are doubtful to see time (at least based on my own opinion).
Luckily, despite all of the injuries and those who have been quarantined due to COVID-19 protocols, the team finally got some good news. Three of the four players who were put on the reserve/COVID-19 list were reinstated yesterday. Those three were Elijah Wilkinson, Christian Jones and Patrick Scales. The only player left on the list is Eddie Goldman. This has to be disappointing to Goldman who decided to opt out of the 2020 season completely due to the virus.
Neither of these three makes the list of players who have seen their stock decrease. Wilkinson was never high enough and Jones and Scales remained the same with their short stint away from the team. These four players, however, have seen their stock drop drastically over the last two weeks and some should be concerned about their job security going forward.
