There’s no way to get around it: Tonight’s game is the most meaningless of the preseason.
The reality of the fourth and final preseason game is that most of the decisions have already been made.
Sixteen guys competing for seven spots.
As you watch tonight’s preseason game between the Bears and Panthers, please keep in mind one important thing.
There is no lack of motivation among the cornerbacks and safeties.
The Chicago Bears have placed wide receiver Johnny Knox on the PUP list, placed rookie safety Brandon Hardin on the injured reserve list, and cut nine other players in their effort to get down to get to the 75-man roster limit by Monday.
Former Bear Chris Harris, who is currently a free agent, said he would gladly welcome a phone call from the Bears, if the team decided to pursue the 30-year-old.
With injuries to both Chris Conte and Brandon Hardin, the Bears have signed safety Mark LeGree to a one-year deal.
In the Bears preseason win over the Redskins on Saturday, the team was seemingly running on all cylinders. That is, of course, with the exception of the safeties.
A day after suffering a neck injury in the Bears’ preseason game against the Redskins, rookie safety Brandon Hardin reportedly has been released from the hospital.
Saturday night’s preseason game between the Bears and Redskins was delayed several minutes after rookie safety Brandon Hardin suffered a scary injury and had to be immobilized and carted off the field.
With the signing of safety Brandon Hardin to a four-year contract Tuesday, the Bears now have their entire 2012 draft class under contract.
The Bears agreed to terms with first round pick Shea McClellin Friday, the same day rookie mini camp got started at Halas Hall.
