Some former Bulls are securely preparing for week 1, and some will hope their body of work keeps their name off the transaction wire. NFL Rosters must be at 53 men per team by 4pm Saturday August 30. Those who don't make the active roster could find themselves as one of 320 players assigned to a practice squad.
Assumed safe 53-man roster:
Khalil Mack finished the preseason with 9 tackles, 4 TFLs, 1 Sack, 2 Passes Defended and 1 Int.
James Starks finished the preseason with 22 carries for for 84 yards (3.8 ypc), 2 receptions for 32 yards, 1 Touchdown and 1 Two-Point Conversion.
Steven Means - 4 tackles 2 TFL 1 Sack
Trevor Scott - 7 tackles, and a QB hit.
#Bears DE Trevor Scott is not playing. Neither is OL Michael Ola. Again, good signs for them looking ahead to final cuts.— Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) August 28, 2014
