Bears | Blake Will Try to Lock Up Backup Spot

Larry Mayer, of, reports Chicago Bears QB Jeff Blake can lock the backup job with a solid performance in the Thursday, Sept. 1, preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. Blake will back up rookie QB Kyle Orton in Thursday's preseason finale. "Jeff is getting more comfortable each day," said Bears head coach Lovie Smith. "He will get the majority of the reps for this game. He hasn't gotten as many reps as Kyle, so this is an important week for him."
