Chicago Bears roster updates from training camp

NFL training camp is underway and rosters will be pared down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Chicago Bears sort out their roster decisions.

NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the Chicago Bears.

The Bears added QB Nick Foles and TE Jimmy Graham this offseason, with the hope that Foles can push the offensive output up a bit while the defense holds down the fort, keeping games close. The moves don’t exactly inspire confidence for a 2020 playoff run, though.
