Linebacker James Vaughters and cornerback Clifton Duck both had memorable plays last week against the Giants. Coach Matt Nagy said earlier in the week that he’d be watching both to see how if they could maintain their performance. Since neither is guaranteed a roster spot, it will be a big week for both of them.
The Bears are 9-5-1 all-time against the Colts in the preseason. The teams last met in 2015, when Bears offensive coordinator Chuck Pagano was serving as head coach of the Colts. The Bears won that game, 23-11. The Bears have not lost to Colts in the preseason since 1995.
