Danny Trevathan named NFC defensive Player of the Week With winning and domination comes accolades. It seems like it’s been a while since a Bears player was winning one of the weekly awards http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/akiem-hicks-jersey , but such is life when the team manages just a handful of wins per year.Following a dominating defensive performance, inside linebacker Danny Trevathan has been named Defensive Player of the Week, according to the Chicago Bears official Twitter.Trevathan led the Bears with eight tackles, two sacks, a tackle for loss, a forced fumble and two QB hits.On a night where once again the talk was all about Khalil Mack, Trevathan somehow missed a lot of the glory, but he absolutely balled out.Trevathan is the first Bears player to win it since safety Eddie Jackson won it in Week 7 last year after his two-score performance against Carolina.Former Bears kicker Robbie Gould was named Special Teams Player of the Week for the 49ers, and Chicago’s week 4 opponent, Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, was named Offensive Player of the Week.On the AFC side Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, Colts LB Darius Leonard and Titans safety and trick-play touchdown scorer Dane Cruikshank were the AFC winners for offense Authentic Khalil Mack Jersey , defense and special teams, respectively. Did you think Trevathan flew under the radar Monday night?Bears release first “unofficial” depth chart Earlier today the Chicago Bears revealed their first “unofficial” depth chart for the preseason. As we’ve learned through the years, this first depth chart doesn’t matter much, but we’re a football starved fan-base, so we’ll inspect this bad-boy like it’s a playoff roster!There isn’t much on it that comes as a surprise, but we’ll start with the offense. The o-line is the expected bunch right to left; Bobby Massie, Kyle Long, Cody Whitehair, Eric Kush, and Charles Leno Jr. Rookie James Daniels is listed as the number two left guard and the third string center. I think he has a great shot at unseating Kush, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Kush kept the job. He was playing good football two years ago before his injury. Converted defensive lineman Rashaad Coward is listed as the number two right tackle. The highlight of the skill players is both free agent wide outs, Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel Authentic Leonard Floyd Jersey , listed as the starters. Kevin White is behind Robinson, and rookie sensation Anthony Miller is behind Gabriel. The only interesting thing at the running backs is Ryan Nall is number five at the tailbacks, and not grouped in at all at fullback. Michael Burton is the only FB listed. Trey Burton is the top tight end, and second year pro Adam Shaheen is number three behind Dion Sims. This jives with what we’ve heard from head coach Matt Nagy. He said it’s be Burton (U) and Sims (Y) as the “starters,” with Shaheen getting reps at both spots. There are no surprises at the special teams. Cody Parkey (K), Patrick Scales (LS), and Patrick O’Donnell (P) round out the number ones. Tarik Cohen is the top punt returner, while Benny Cunningham is the number one kick returner. Over on the defensive side of things, the Bears open with Sam Acho starting at outside linebacker opposite Leonard Floyd. Jonathan Bullard starts at one defensive end spot with Roy Robertson-Harris backing him up. Hold out rookie Roquan Smith is the number two inside linebacker behind Nick Kwiatkoski. The starting secondary is unchanged from a year ago, with the only interesting thing to note is Deiondre’ Hall — who has played some corner in the past, and is currently listed at CB on the Bears’ roster — is listed as the backup safety to Adrian Amos. I’d imagine that some of the first stringers on this depth chart will be held out of Thursday’s preseason opener against the Ravens in the Hall of Fame Game.Look over the Bears’ depth chart and let us know if anything stands out to you guys.
