Looks like the Bears weren’t that high on JaMarcus Russell or Trent Edwards who previously worked out for the team back in June.
During Thursday night’s preseason win over the San Diego Chargers, Bears second-year QB Matt Blanchard suffered a fractured a knuckle on his left hand.
“Certainly that’s something that we’re gonna have to repair fairly quickly to get a third quarterback on the roster,” Bears HC Marc Trestman when asked about the possibility of signing another quarterback at some point, via ESPN Chicago.
Blanchard has drawn some positive reviews from the team’s coaching staff, but his injury could force them reconsider some of the players they brought in for workouts a few months back. Chicago brought in former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell, Trent Edwards and Jordan Palmer back in June. Russell got some pretty positive reviews from those in attendance for his arm strength.
“We’ve got to get another quarterback in here, and I’m sure we’ll look to do that as we move forward,” Trestman said.
