The #Bears knew going into Sunday's game against the #Titans that it would be their biggest test of the preseason. It was a game where many of the starters planned on getting playing time as the season's "dress rehearsal." Head coach #John Fox also stated earlier in the week that Mitchell Trubisky would indeed get plays in with the starting line at some point in the game, which made it even more intriguing.

The result of the game was a 19-7 win in Nashville over the Titans. The game featured [VIDEO] yet another great performance from the defensive unit and more impressive stuff from Trubsiky. Mike Glennon played the first half and looked okay, not great, but had a very nice opening drive.

However, the injury bug did not stay away from the Bears as it is suspected that receiver Cam Meredith may be out for the season with a knee injury along with some other players hurt.

Positives performances

As mentioned, Glennon had an okay day. There were some passes he did not connect on that he should have and still is not one to throw downfield like a starter should. Credit due to him though on the first drive of the game going over 80 yards ending in a touchdown pass to Dion Sims; Glennon ended his day 11-18 with 134 yards and the touchdown. In the second half Trubisky came in and started off shaky, but settled into a grove. His two big highlights were a 45-yard touchdown pass to Tanner Gentry and his escaping pressure and making a fantastic pass down field to Victor Cruz which was right on the money but unfortunately dropped.

The rookie finished his day 10/15 with 128 yards and a touchdown.

The defense once again was fantastic. Continuing to put pressure on the quarterback and even some nice plays in the secondary by veteran safety Quintin Demps, despite struggling on a 3rd and 31 play which the Titans converted. Outside of that, it was great work overall in a game which the Bears defense recorded four sacks, recovered a fumble and held the Titans offense to a single touchdown and 357 total yards. The special team unit today blocked a punt and recovered it in the endzone for a safety.

Injury problem

There were a number of injury problems in today's game for the Bears and by far the biggest being Cameron Meredith. In the first quarter his knee bent sideways at a 90-degree angle and was carted off the field. It was reported by John Fox that they suspect an torn ACL and an MRI will officially diagnose the injury Monday. Meredith had a great year last season and was slated to be their number one guy this season [VIDEO].

Another notable name leaving today's game was LB Leonard Floyd, who seemed to tweak his left foot on a play. LS Patrick Scales and CB Prince Amukamara also left today's game with injuries. Fox was quoted in the postgame of Scales' injury being "serious" of nature. All in all it was frustrating to see some of these key players suffer injuries but at least it was a well played game by the Bears. One preseason game remains next week against the Cleveland Browns at Soldier Field.
