SHARE Rookie Adrian Amos atop Bears’ depth chart

Rookie safety Adrian Amos was the only new starter in the Bears’ unofficial depth chart, released Tuesday in anticipation of Saturday’s game against the Colts.

He had played alongside Antrel Rolle in practice after Brock Vereen started the first preseason game.

Asked about Amos on Saturday, Fox said his staff was evaluating the Penn State alum.

“He’s earned where he is,” Fox said. “I don’t know if that’s the way it’ll stay. It’s not where you start the race it’s where you finish it. He’s earned that, and we’ll go from there.”

The Bears had zero movement on their depth chart other than the Amos promotion and the addition of new receiver Jeremy Kelley. As a sign of how unofficial the chart is, every other player on the 90-man roster was in the exact same spot, first team through sixth team.
