Who do you think is leading the competition for the Bears’ No. 2 running back position?
I certainly wouldn’t disagree with your assessment, and while the Bears have not yet named their starting safeties, I think it’s only a matter of time before Ryan Mundy secures one of the two jobs. Coach Marc Trestman lauded Mundy on Friday for playing well and being in the right place. Asked about Mundy earning a starting spot, Trestman said: “He is in a good position. We’re going to wait it out and see what happens here for the next few weeks. But I think he’s in a good place.”
The Bears are hopeful that safety Chris Conte will play Friday night in Seattle, but they first must wait to see how he responds to a full week of practice. He only recently returned to action after missing the entire offseason program and the first two-plus weeks of training camp following shoulder surgery. Said coach Marc Trestman: “We want to get him in there. We certainly want to give him a chance to compete. [But] we’ll see where he is.”
