  • Bears' Jaquan Brisker: Concludes second season in Chicago

    Brisker posted eight tackles in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Brisker was a high-variance IDP, as his weekly tackle totals showed a pattern of highs and lows. In 15 games, the safety collected 105 tackles, one sack, one interception and a forced fumble. With two years remaining on his rookie contract, Brisker could see his production increase in 2024 if the Bears continue to build on the defensive improvements they made in the second half of the season.

    Brisker (groin) did not practice Thursday. Brisker logged a limited practice Wednesday, so this is clearly a step in the wrong direction for the second-year safety, and a late-week downgrade usually doesn't bode well for a player suiting up on game day. Brisker will try to get back on the field Friday to help increase his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Browns.

  • Bears' Jaquan Brisker: Standout rookie year

    Brisker recorded 10 tackles in the Bears' 29-13 loss to the Vikings in Week 18, and ended the season with 104 tackles, four sacks, three interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery over 15 games played.
