Are Bears thinking Safety first?
CHICAGO (MCT) — It will be interesting to see how the Bears address safety depth before the 8 p.m. Friday deadline for final cuts.
The position is rather thin. Starting free safety Chris Conte remains sidelined with a dislocated right shoulder. Backup Brandon Hardin is out for the season with a neck injury, although the rookie was out of his neck brace Tuesday.
Conte plans to play in the Sept. 9 season opener against the Colts, but the Bears still need insurance behind Conte and fellow starting safety Major Wright. Fifth-year player Craig Steltz is their only other experienced safety.
