We have a look at the tentative preseason schedule for the Bears. This should be firmed up before or by the time the regular-season schedule is released later today.
Saturday, Aug. 15 at Buffalo, 6 p.m., Fox-32, WBBM-780
Saturday, Aug. 22 New York Giants, 7 p.m., Fox-32, WBBM-780
Sunday, Aug. 30 at Denver, 7 p.m., Ch. 5, WBBM-780
Thursday, Sept. 3 Cleveland, 7 p.m., Fox-32, WBBM-780
This is the latest the Bears have opened the preseason since beginning on Aug. 16 in 1987. This marks the fifth consecutive year the Bears will conclude the preseason slate by playing the Browns.
If these dates hold true, the first training camp practice at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Ill., will likely be July 31.
Stay tuned for a full release of the schedule later on.
