The Chicago Bears began their 2018-2019 NFL season campaign on Thursday night in Canton. Here are 3 players that made their presence known at the first opportunity to stand out.

At long last, the Chicago Bears and the NFL season are back in our lives. After seven months of the offseason, the Bears faced off against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night as part of the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. It was a long night, but a good opportunity for both Bears coaches and fans to get a look at some role players that could have an impact this season.

With five games to play this preseason, the Bears didn’t give any of their starters playing time. This is mainly because there will be plenty of opportunities for these players to shine in the other preseason games. Fans will have to wait until the August 9th game against the Cincinnati Bengals to see how young quarterback Mitch Trubisky will fare in new coach Matt Nagy‘s offense.

The Bears had up to 19 players on injured reserve in the 2016 season, so it’s probably a good thing that they didn’t throw many starters out there in week one of the preseason to risk getting injured. For now, the Bears have avoided any significant injuries to key players in training camp, but there’s a long way to go.

While there weren’t a lot of stars to watch for the Bears on Thursday night, there were some guys lower on the depth chart that had something to prove. Whether for better or for worse, here are three players who stood out in the Hall of Fame Game.
