The fourth preseason game for the Chicago Bears will mean one thing: a lot of backup players. The Bears will host the Cleveland Browns in their annual preseason game to end the preseason and take us into the regular season.
The second string players will likely get all of the starting spots on Thursday night, unless head coach John Fox wants to put some players through a final test before roster cuts on Saturday. Here’s what you need to know about Thursday’s game:
