The Bears announced late Friday night that they will not be playing most of their first-team players.

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.

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.
