Wed, 16 Jul 2014 12:53:12 -0700

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman is cautious about FS Brock Vereen landing a starting job heading into training camp. "The simple fact we've rotated him with the 1's is a clear indication we think he can compete, but we're not going to anoint him yet," Trestman said. "There's no reason to think he can't put himself in position to compete for one of those jobs, but it's way, way too early."

Bears | Could rest starters in Week 16

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 15:09:16 -0800

The Chicago Bears may be faced with a situation where they could rest some of their starters in Week 16 against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night. If the Detroit Lions lose to the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bears' game won't matter much in the grand scheme. The Bears and Packers would decide the division in Week 17 regardless of what happens to the Bears in Week 16. "Winning does take us to a different place in terms of potential seeding, which is critically important," head coach Marc Trestman said. "That's enough to reason out how we would play the game. Now could that change? Certainly. But right now we're focused on winning a game."
