Bears rookie saves two takeaways in preseason opener originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Bears linebacker and Illinois native Jack Sanborn is making the most of his preseason snaps.

Sanborn recorded an interception from backup quarterback Shane Buechele on the Chiefs’ first possession in the second half. Two Chiefs possessions later, Sanborn picked up a fumble from running back Derrick Gore.

Roquan Smith’s ongoing contract issues have created question marks around the linebacker position for the Bears. Sanborn is making the most of his pre-season by showing the team he can help fill the void.

Sanborn, 22, signed as an undrafted free agent from the University of Wisconsin. He grew up in Deer Park, Illinois at Lake Zurich High School.
