The Bears fully expect Mike Glennon to start at quarterback this season, but, as the second-overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Trubisky is clearly the quarterback of the future.

Going into the game the Bears were thin at corner, Bryce Callahan and Jonathan Banks didn't travel with the team, leaving the Bears with Marcus Cooper, Kyle Fuller, Cre'von LeBlanc, Sherrick McManis and B.W. Webb. Scales, like Amukamara, was seen on crutches after the game and sporting a brace on his knee.

Meredith's ACL tear made him the 39th National Football League player to suffer a knee injury since training camp began on July 21.

Fantasy Impact As a result of Meredith's severe knee injury, he will miss the 2017 season in its entirety.

Fox told reporters after last weekend's game in Tennessee that Sanchez would play in the fourth exhibition game.

Meredith signed with the Bears in 2015 as an undrafted free agent and had a breakout season a year ago.

Even though the Bears put on quite a show and dominated a very good Titans team and won, it feels like a loss.

So far this preseason, Trubisky has opened some eyes with better-than-expected play.
