Center Olin Kreutz, LS Pat Mannelly, MLB Brian Urlacher, QB Jay Cutler and DE Julius Peppers were named the team captains for the 2010-2011 season.
In other Bears news, eight players have been signed to the practice squad.
WR Juaquin Iglesias
WR Greg Matthews
OL Levi Horn
OL James Marten
OL Edwin Williams
DE Barry Turner
FB Eddie Williams
LB J.D. Folsom
Six of the eight players actually appeared in preseason games for the Bears. OL Edwin Williams was added when the Bears released RB Brandon Minor after the fourth preseason game and LB J.D. Folsom was added yesterday.
Iglesias, Marten, Folsom and Eddie Williams have the biggest chance of being promoted to the active roster because of their experience.
Iglesias is still liked by Bears coaches, Marten is a big tackle, who could provide good depth, Folsom is a big linebacker who can help out on special teams and Eddie Williams, well he is a fullback and the Bears don’t have one on their current roster.
Look for the starting lineup for Sunday’s game to be announced in the next couple of days
