The Bears matched their franchise record for fewest interceptions in a 16-game season with eight in each of the past two years.
Chicago Bears coach John Fox paused to recall when he last had a quarterback whose debut created a stir as great as Mitch Trubisky’s.
Mitch Trubisky threw for 166 yards and led three scoring drives after Mike Glennon struggled for Chicago, before the Denver Broncos scored two long touchdowns in the closing minutes to beat the Bears 24-17 in the preseason opener on Thursday night.
First-round draft pick Mitchell Trubisky naturally commands attention in Bears training camp, but other draft picks are also making positive impressions.
Coach John Fox says Kush tore the hamstring from the bone late last week. He was placed on injured reserve Monday and is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday.
WANE-TV will air the Chicago Bears’ Aug. 10, Aug. 19 and Aug. 31 preseason games.
