If you were hoping head coach Matt Nagy would relent and let some of his Chicago Bears stars play in a preseason game, your hopes are about to be dashed.
The Bears have announced the roster of players who are not expected to play against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, and there are a total of 28 players who won’t see the field in the third exhibition game of the preseason.
Included in that number are all of the team’s starting players on offense and defense, including quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and linebacker Khalil Mack. Multiple tight ends, including Trey Burton, Adam Shaheen, and Ben Braunecker, are also sitting out, as are running backs Mike Davis, Tarik Cohen, and David Montgomery.
Here is the full list of players sitting out the game:
