#BearsNation: For Bears, backup QB 1 of few questions on offense

Posted: Updated:
BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Almost as soon as he signed with the Chicago Bears, Jimmy Clausen got some tutoring on the offense from Jay Cutler.

If everything goes according to plan, he won't see meaningful action.

The Bears would love nothing more than to see Cutler get through the season without missing time and render the backup quarterback spot a non-issue.

Instead, it's one of the few areas of concern for an offense that ranked among the league's best last season and has all its starters back.

For now, coach Marc Trestman has the returning Jordan Palmer in the lead. Then, there's Clausen trying to win it, with rookie David Fales likely trailing the pack.

    Colin Kaepernick's breakout performance against the Chicago Bears two years ago helped make him a star. He can only hope to be as dominant again while facing Chicago in his Levi's Stadium debut on Sunday.
