The Bears have big question marks at the safety position. Again. This should come as no surprise to any Chicago fan given the fact that the Bears have drafted a safety every year since 2005.
Rookie Brandon Hardin hurt his neck in last week's game against the Washington Redskins. The Bears say that he will be OK, but he's not expected to play this week. The first chance we may see him in action is Week 1 against Indy.
Chris Conte has been having a great training camp and was competing for the starting free safety role. However, he dislocated his shoulder against the Redskins and is out until Week 1 as well.
Major Wright played against Washington, and he'll certainly see more time now; however, folks may remember that he injured his hamstring Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. How long can he stay healthy?
Craig Steltz will also see extended time this week. He has been doing well for the Bears, and it looks like he'll see a lot of time this week as well.
Can the Bears get through this preseason game without another injury? Who will be healthy for Week 1? These are also questions that we'll have to wait longer for to get an answer.
However, in a division with strong passing attacks like Green Bay and Detroit, a weak safety position will be a huge liability if the Bears can't resolve it by the regular season.
