Bears to Likely Rest Stars TonightCHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Bears got the balance they sought on offense last week. Now, their starters are getting a breather.
Don't expect to see Chicago's top stars on the field for Thursday's final preseason game against Cleveland.
Their dress rehearsal for the opener against Cincinnati on Sept. 8 came last week, when they dominated Oakland in the first half. Now, Jay Cutler gets a breather. So does Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte along with every other star on both sides of the ball.
The Browns are also expected to rest most of their starters.
