Chicago Bears: 5 players who have most to lose against Titans
By Ryan Heckman
Saturday, the Chicago Bears will conclude their 2021 preseason in a contest against the Tennessee Titans.
In just two preseason games so far, we have learned quite a bit about this Bears team and where it could head as soon as this season. Of course, the headliner will continue to be the quarterback position.
Rookie quarterback Justin Fields has dazzled us through two preseason performances and has fans buzzing.
Meanwhile, the guys in front of him and veteran Andy Dalton continue to get healthy — a great sign for the offense going forward. Now, it’s about figuring out which players should take those few final spots on the roster before the cuts get fast and furious.
Saturday’s preseason game will reveal plenty about some Chicago Bears battles
Sure, the big story has been at quarterback. But, the Bears have had a lot more storylines come out of camp that merit conversation.
One of the most exciting parts of camp has become the battle at wide receiver. Rodney Adams forming a bond with Fields and putting on a memorable performance the day after his wife gave birth will forever be a Bears preseason gem.
Seeing Alec Ogletree come on board and immediately start picking off passes at an exponential rate in practice was unexpected, yet invigorating for this defense.
The depth at running back has become a clear advantage for this offense — something the team did not have last year. There are many parts to this roster to be excited about, but still, a few areas that could change on Saturday.
These five players will have to bring it against the Titans.
