McCown has ties to several key figures at Halas Hall.
The discussion can no longer be about Jay Cutler’s physical talents. It’s about production.
Kyle Long is inactive for today’s game versus the Lions.
Bears safety Chris Conte is still dealing with a back injury.
The Chicago Bears placed linebacker Darryl Sharpton on the reserve/injured list Saturday due to a hamstring injury.
Bears open three roster spots for Sunday night’s game vs. 49ers.
Also, offensive linemen Matt Slauson and Roberto Garza will miss Sunday’s game.
Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are “day-to-day,” Marc Trestman says.
Chris Conte is expected to be part of a rotation at the two safety spots.
It’s still unclear if Chris Conte will play Sunday, but the arrow’s pointing up.
Chicago still has unanswered questions and important roster decisions looming.
Chicago will rest most of its starters tonight, including Cutler, Corte and Marshall.
Also, third-stringer David Fales will start Thursday’s preseason finale.
Jordan Palmer also says Chicago is a Super Bowl-caliber team.
Keep an eye on how the reserve running backs like Ka’Deem Carey perform.
“We like what we’ve seen up to this point,” Marc Trestman says of David Fales.

The idea of Kyle Orton being a backup in Chicago appears far-fetched.
Fales has quality anticipation and pocket awareness but needs to improve his arm strength.
The Bears held their opening training camp press conference Wednesday in Bourbonnais.
