2. Chicago Bears Rookie Developments

The Chicago Bears should get both Jaquan Brisker and Kyler Gordon healthy for the final month of the season. Gordon has a lot to prove, and Brisker is looking to build on his great season. Still, they are not the only rookies who will have a big final month.

Velus Jones is at least active, and his development will be worth following. Braxton Jones has never played so long without a bye week, and after a much-needed regroup time, we should be looking to see him at his best during this late-season run.

Dominique Robinson has started three straight games, and it should finish with seven starts. There is an argument to increase his snaps as well. Elijah Hicks may get more work with Eddie Jackson banged up, which is worth following.

Then, there are the UDFAs. Jack Sanborn is going to start, and we have already seen a lot of Jaylon Jones, and a bit of Josh Blackwell. How do these three progress after the bye week? Does Sanborn improve? There are so many rookies and they are all going to get a lot of work, which will be great to watch.
