Jordan Palmer to be No. 2 quarterback Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bears quarterback Jordan Palmer will be the first signal caller off the bench to relieve starter Jay Cutler in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks, ESPNChicago.com reports. Jimmy Clausen served as the No. 2 QB in the last preseason game.

"Jay will work certainly into the second quarter and we'll make a decision during the second quarter what we're going to do with him," Trestman said. "That will be dependent on a number of different things. And then after that we'll have Jordan, so expect Jordan to play the third quarter and Jimmy to play the fourth. We'll continue to rotate these guys around. We've got another week after this one and that's the way we'll operate this week."

Palmer and Claussen are batting to win the primary backup spot behind Cutler.

Mathieu hopes to graduate to team drills in the next couple days. "There are going to be days where I get sore," Mathieu said. "I'm sure in the middle of a game, I'll get sore, I'll get tight, but I have to push through it. I think it's all about what I tell myself. I try to keep positive thoughts in my mind."
