TOP STORYLINE

Coach Matt Nagy said that receiver Allen Robinson will make his preseason debut Saturday night. It will be Robinson's first game action since tearing his ACL in Week 1 of the regular season last year when he played for the Jaguars. Robinson, who signed a three-year deal with the Bears in March, put up impressive numbers during his time in Jacksonville. In his last full season in 2016, Robinson reached the end zone six times on 73 receptions and averaged more than 12 yards per catch.

"Make contested catches," Nagy said when asked what he's looking to see out of Robinson in Denver. "He's done that his whole entire career, now let's do it in this offense."

ROQUAN WATCH

Rookie linebacker Roquan Smith, who signed with the Bears on Tuesday after holding out due to contract negotiations, will be on the sideline with the Bears for the first time during a game. Nagy gave no indication whether the No. 8 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft will see the field on Saturday, but his presence alone is a step closer to seeing him in game action. The first-round pick had a stellar college career at the University of Georgia, where he was a unanimous 2017 First Team All-American, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year and winner of the Butkus Award, presented annually to the nation's most outstanding linebacker.

HISTORY LESSON

The Bears are 3-7 all-time against the Broncos in the preseason. The Bears won their last preseason contest in Denver in 2009, edging the Broncos 27-17.
