Bears Will Go With Different Starter vs. Cleveland

Bears Will Go With Different Starter vs. Cleveland

Chicago Bears

In a press conference held Monday, Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman made the surprising announcement that sixth round pick David Fales will start the game Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns.

The decision comes just hours after the Bears released Jordan Palmer and made Jimmy Clausen the No. 2 man. It also comes just days after the Chicago Bears offense put up a whopping zero points with their starting unit against the defending champion Seattle Seahawks.

To this point, Fales has only attempted seven passes in the preseason. He has completed five for 68 yards and an interception.

It is still unclear what the Bears will do with Fales once the season roles around. Not many believe the team will hold three quarterbacks on the active roster, but it’s hard to imagine Phil Emery cutting a guy whom he just drafted. It is expected the Bears will move Fales to the practice squad.
