    The Chicago Bears will rotate captains on a weekly basis this season, and head coach Matt Nagy has revealed his first batch of leaders for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

    For the Week 1 tilt at Lambeau Field, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, defensive end Akiem Hicks, and running back Benny Cunningham will wear the captain’s “C” on their jerseys, Nagy said in a press conference Thursday at Halas Hall.
