    Meet the New Bears Who Hope to Make 2018 Memorable

    The Chicago Bears are welcoming plenty of new faces this season, and we're breaking it all down for you before the team's season begins.

    According to multiple reports, Chicago Bears fans will get a limited look at two of their newest defensive stars in their game against the Green Bay Packers.

    According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, rookie Roquan Smith and new acquisition Khalil Mack are expected to play a limited number of snaps against the Packers, as neither player saw any reps during preseason action.

    The reports suggest that both players will be limited to 20 to 30 plays in the game, and that’s a tough pill to swallow for a Bears team that’s hoping to get a rare victory over the Packers at Lambeau Field.

    Smith held out from training camp due to a contract dispute with the Bears, but finally signed and was able to get in practice time with the team, but an injury prevented him from getting onto the field for a game.

    Kick-off between the Bears and Packers is slated for 7:20 p.m., and the game will air on NBC 5.
