CHICAGO — Don’t expect to see the Bears’ best punch Saturday at Soldier Field.

The team tweeted Friday night that most of the starters, including Mitch Trubisky, will not play against Kansas City.

Usually the penultimate preseason game is a full-on dress rehearsal for the first stringers, but head coach Matt Nagy and his staff planned all week to give the number ones a breather after a heavy dose of extra reps.

Trubisky has taken a combined 39 snaps in two preseason games so far, completing 11 of his 18 passes for 94 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
