The Kansas City Chiefs first-teamers are likely to play into the third quarter on Saturday afternoon, but they won’t be playing the best the Chicago Bears have to offer, according to the team’s official Twitter account.
After their best week of practices so far in 2018, Matt Nagy met with the team today to inform them most starters, including Mitchell Trubisky, will not play in #KCvsCHI. Coach Nagy and his staff had planned for this all week, giving starters on both sides of the ball extra reps.— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) August 25, 2018
The Bears official website noted that because of the team’s participation in the Hall of Fame game, it has practiced more than any other team.
With Bears starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky not suiting up, that means former Chiefs QB Chase Daniel, Trubisky’s backup, will get the start.
