With a week of practice wrapping up today, here's what's been happening in the lead up to Sunday's Bears-Cardinals matchup:
- Mike Glennon is pretending to be Mitchell Trubisky for the Cardinals' scout-team offense this week. Glennon was Chicago's QB when the Bears drafted Trubisky, and was promptly cut one year into his three-year, $45 million contract. Symmetry!
- Still no sign of a QB switch in Arizona. It looks like the Bears will get a full 60 minutes of Sam Bradford, then.
- The Cardinals plan to dial back their offensive gameplan on Sunday. Arizona already has one of -- if not the -- worst offenses in football.
- Cardinals Tackle Andre Smith will be OUT on Sunday. That means the Cardinals' will send their backup tackle out there against Khalil Mack.
- OL Kyle Long was again absent from practice. This absence was a planned off-day, but Long's now missed multiple days of practice this week with a lingering ankle issue.
- CB Marcus Cooper won't play this Sunday. Kevin Toliver, an undrafted rookie, will get the start in Cooper's place.
