It won't be a star-studded performance by the Chicago Bears in their final preseason game.  Head coach Marc Trestman told the team website, nearly all starters will be rested against the Cleveland Browns.

"I wouldn't say all, but it'll be close to all of the starters," Trestman said. "There are always going to be things that happen later in the week because of injuries and things like that we may have to play some guys, but our hope is most if not all will be held out of the game."

The team already made 14 cuts this weekend, and must execute just one more roster move to get down to Tuesday's mandatory maximum of 75 players. There are still many decisions left to be made, although the competition remains among those on the tail end of the roster. 

"I think by holding some of the guys out you have a general idea of a lot of the guys that are going to make the football team," Trestman said. "But this is a big game for the guys who are playing on a number of levels. There's still competition for positions on the team and there's competition for positions in this league.

The Bears host the Browns Thursday at 7 p.m. central.
