The Bears should reduce their training camp roster of 90 players to 53 over the next month. The team will train four or five days a week from now until then. About ten practices are open to the public, starting with a Thursday practice.

The Bears will host fans at Soldier Field for their annual family celebration on Tuesday, August 9th. They will play their first pre-season game a few days later on Saturday, August 13, against the Kansas City Chiefs at Soldier Field.

The team must reduce its roster to 85 players on August 16, and then again to 80 players by August 23. The final drawdown of 53 players must take place by 3pm on August 30th.

What to expect from Matt Ebervlosse

Bears first-year coach Matt Eberlus told his players to have their sneakers ready for first practice on Wednesday. The players got a taste of Eberlus for the first time as a coach in the spring, but things will rise to a higher level now.

Eberflus is a defensive-minded coach who will spend a lot of time implementing his 4-3 defensive scheme. He gave the reins of abuse to new offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. Getsy comes to Chicago after spending seven of the past eight years as a coach in various roles with the Green Bay Packers.

All eyes will be once again on quarterback Justin Fields. This season, Fields is the clear start in the position, unlike he was a year ago when he was stuck behind Andy Dalton in the depth chart. The fields should see nearly all first-team representatives in the quarterback.
