Bears not expected to play tonight:— Kevin Fishbain (@kfishbain) August 24, 2019
Both head coaches already said they they won’t play many, if any of their starters, so this will be a good chance for each team to evaluate their back-ups against other back-ups.

The Bears (0-2) play the Colts (0-2) in Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday, August 24, at 6:00 PM (Chicago time).
