“If somebody comes out and has a poor game, it doesn't mean they're getting cut,” Nagy said. “If they come out and have a great game, it doesn't mean they made the team.”
It’s more of a process, which Nagy and his coaches will evaluate over the entire preseason. But, there were still opportunities for advancement in the Bears’ 30-27 loss, which dropped them to 0-2.
CB Kyle Fuller
With the Bears’ first-team offense struggling to move the ball, Fuller kept them in the game with a pick-6 of Bengals QB Andy Dalton. Fuller jumped the route of speedy WR John Ross as he was falling to the turf, snagged the ball and went 47 yards to tie the game 7-7 midway through the first quarter. Fuller is coming off the best season of his four-year career, and he has been just as sharp in training camp as he was last year, when he was third in the NFL with 22 pass breakups.
“I was going against a fast receiver,” Fuller said. “I tried to give myself some room. He was running deep, and once I saw him break, I was able to get in position to get where the ball was, and it ended up being an interception and a touchdown.”
