The Chicago Bears' roster is still fairly open, including starting roles. Though they have designated starters, there is a good chance that some role players will slip into starting roles, if they have successful preseasons.
There are also some players who were strong contributors last season, but lost their starting positions or are on the brink of being cut from the team.
The third preseason game is typically the game in which the starters play the most, generally into the third quarter. So, the role players will have an even bigger uphill battle on Saturday against the Tennessee Titans, because they will have less time to showcase their talents.
Here are the role players that need to have impressive performances to keep, or upgrade, their roles with the Chicago Bears.
