The first preseason game is in the books for the Chicago Bears.

Some players stood out in the victory like Trevis Gipson, Tyrique Stevenson, and Terrell Lewis. Justin Fields had negative air yards but still ended up with 129 yards passing and two touchdown passes.

He can thank D.J. Moore and Khalil Herbert for making some huge plays on a couple of screen passes.

Needless to say, a lot of players showed why they deserve to make the final 53-man roster.

Players get another case to make the Chicago Bears this week with joint practices and then a preseason game on Saturday with the Indianapolis Colts for the second preseason game.

The Chicago Bears are hoping that this roster can take strides this year.

If General Manager Ryan Poles had to make roster decisions after the first preseason game, it could look something like this:

As you scroll through, please note that starters will always be in bold…

Two roster spots: Justin Fields and P.J. Walker

Fields only attempted three passes and they were all screens. Two of them went to the house (although both could have been called back for an illegal man downfield). We did not get a chance to see if he made the progress needed to improve in the passing game.

He will probably get more snaps against the Colts along with more opportunities to throw the ball.

P.J. Walker threw a bad interception once he came into the game. He was brought in since his game is like Fields, so the offense will not have to have major adjustments if Justin goes down.

Rookie Tyson Bagent could be a candidate for the practice squad.
