Week 2 of the NFL preseason begins tonight with a fight between the Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have a few notable inactive players. Drew Lock, who should start if Seattle resumes its quarterback fight, will not be able to line up against Geno Smith because he tested positive for COVID-19. Rookie running back Kenneth Walker III is also out as he struggles with a hernia.
For Chicago, the offensive line will try to recover after their performance against the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend. The line allowed five sacks total, but the quarterbacks found some hits. Justin Fields completed 4 of 7 passes for 48 yards in limited action and had some nice finishes. Trevor Siemian had a solid game as he threw two touchdowns to spark Chicago’s second-half run that put the Bears in the winning column. Keep an eye on rookie safety Jaquan Brisker, who has fans excited after his first show appearance.
