CLEVELAND -- Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith has decided to rest quarterbacks Jay Cutler and Jason Campbell in favor of veteran third-stringer Josh McCown against the Cleveland Browns in the preseason finale.
The Bears also sat every offensive and defensive starter against the Browns.
McCown signed with the Bears last season in late November and appeared in three games, starting the final two games of the regular season. He completed 63.6 percent of his passes for 414 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions.
The Bears re-signed McCown to a one-year deal in the offseason to serve as the club's No. 3 quarterback. The team waived undrafted rookie free agent quarterback Matt Blanchard on Sunday.
The Bears will start Josh McCown at quarterback on Thursday.
