Four members of the Bears' first-team defense — DL Eddie Goldman and Bilal Nichols, LB Roquan Smith and S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix — played the first five snaps in the preseason opener.
CHICAGO – The issue with trying to preview these Bears exhibition games for our readers is the degree to which Matt Nagy seems to revel in being as mysterious as possible as to who’s going to play.

The Bears simulated a full mock game at Halas Hall Wednesday night, pitting the starters vs. the reserves and bringing in everything from portable lights to a live DJ to, yes, the Bear raid siren.
Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the offensive and defensive starters are slated to play “a quarter or so” Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens, head coach Matt LaFleur said.
Matt LaFleur likes to use “21” personnel — two running backs, one tight end, two receivers — and change personnel groupings extensively, so not having a fullback is problematic.
Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards finished off his visit to New Orleans Saints training camp practice Monday by making a cameo appearance in the Quarterback Challenge, trying to throw footballs through open windows.

We thought the Dallas Cowboys’ looming contract extension puzzle was tricky before Monday’s report from Jane Slater of NFL Media that QB Dak Prescott turned down an offer including $30 million annually as he seeks to be the NFL’s first $40 million-pe…
In his first NFL training camp, Roquan Smith dazzled as often as any Bears player not named Khalil Mack. Matt Nagy might have held only one live tackling drill in Bourbonnais, but Smith was constantly around the football and looked like a unique, dea…
What used to be an annual tradition among NFL teams is nearing extinction. By my count, only 10 of the NFL’s 32 teams left their year-round facilities this summer to begin training camp.
Javon Wims led the NFL in preseason receiving yardage last year as a seventh-round rookie. He’s unlikely to do so again in his second summer in the NFL. Why? His sophomore strides have been too immense.
“I really just want to live up to what’s within myself and be better than what I have been,” said Moore, who caught just two passes in his rookie season last year.

BOURBONNAIS — After finishing the 2018 season a disappointing 27th in the NFL in average gain per carry and failing to mount a consistent rushing attack all season long, the Bears spent this past offseason almost totally overhauling their running bac…
The season may be over for the second-year pro, who was expected to be a starter this year after his injury in Thursday's preseason opener.
Aaron Jones understands that coach Matt LaFleur’s passing game is reliant on a successful running game setting up play-action passes and keeping defenses guessing with a more balanced run/pass ratio than the Packers have shown in recent years, so he knows his role will be vital.
BOURBONNAIS — Coach-speak has become a way of life in professional sports and there are times when even the most genuine of human beings who also happen to be head coaches or managers attempt to be informative or complimentary and instead come off so…
