Chicago Bears takeaway No. 4: Big changes could come after tomorrow

Matt Eberflus spoke about how he and his staff will meet with Ryan Poles tomorrow after the final practice to discuss and reassess the roster before players and coaches go on break. This response actually came after one of the reporters asked Eberflus again about Teven Jenkins playing with the second-string offense. Once again, Eberflus made it known that the current combination is remaining in place for the full mandatory mini-camp to see six full practices.

The current combination is not guaranteed to be who starts at training camp or to start the 2022 season. This meeting that the coaching staff and personnel department are going to have could lead to many changes. For one, it could lead to a change on the offensive line. Who is going to start at left tackle, right guard and right tackle, seem to be the biggest questions. Will there be a change using the current personnel or will the team go out and look to sign someone else?

This could happen at a few other positions too, however, those positions are likely to be more from a depth perspective. That said, we could see some shifts on the depth chart at wide receiver, defensive end and also defensive tackle. Maybe the next month and a half won’t be as quiet of a news cycle for the Chicago Bears as we think.
