The Bears won’t adjust their depth chart at this point, so I wouldn’t say that Jimmy Clausen has become their No. 2 quarterback. But I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if he comes in to replace Jay Cutler Thursday night against the Jaguars with Jordan Palmer following him. The Bears want to create a level playing field in the competition for the backup quarterback position, and Palmer worked with the No. 2 offense in the preseason opener. I’d say the same situation applies at other positions in the preseason as well; don’t make any assumptions if a new player is working with a different unit because it’s just part of the team's ongoing evaluation process.

It’s pretty much a dead heat at this point. Both players are listed as co-starters on the depth chart and likely will remain that way until the preseason is over. Jon Bostic is probably better in pass coverage and possesses more athleticism, while D.J. Williams boasts an incredibly high football IQ and is very tough against the run. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if they split reps during the season with Williams playing on most run downs and Bostic replacing him in passing situations.
