Coach John Fox notably didn’t disparage the notion that Trubisky might deserve snaps with the No. 1 offense in the … third preseason game.
Overall, it was another encouraging performance for a defense that was missing five expected Week 1 starters.
Since the Bears’ preseason opener against the Broncos on Aug. 10, the eye test is confirming coach John Fox’s rosy outlook.
Against the Broncos, Thompson not only had a 44-yard kickoff return, but he was the Bears’ leading receiver with five receptions for 64 yards.
Long will be back at practice on Thursday night, when the Bears work out at Prospect High School, Fox said.
