Under head coach Matt Nagy the team has no desire to win in the preseason to stay healthy for the preseason. He told the media that the starters won’t play on Saturday. Mitchell Trubisky has not thrown a pass in the preseason and it wouldn’t bother Nagy if he didn’t throw any until the regular season.

Colts head coach Frank Reich reported to the media that he will also not play starters on Saturday against the Bears.

Behind Sam Darnold are Trevor Siemian, Luke Falk and Davis Webb. Prefer the Saints depth at quarterback and playmaker positions. Not much home field advantage in the preseason.
