Sanchez completed both of his pass attempts for 23 yards Saturday against the Cardinals.
Sanchez was on the field briefly as the second-string quarterback and although he started moving the Bears offense, a bad snap on a third-down play resulted in the drive being aborted. As long as the team leaves Mike Glennon in as a starter, Sanchez will likely continue to serve as the backup while Mitch Trubisky is groomed to eventually take over as the first-string quarterback.
Sanchez completed one of four passes for four yards Thursday against the Broncos.
Sanchez played for a short time during the second quarter, and had a pair of passes dropped, keeping him from being able to move the team down the field. He's been serving as the second-string quarterback throughout training camp, and he was utilized as such in this contest. Unless the team changes its stance on Mitch Trubisky's status as the third-stringer, Sanchez would likely be the starter should Mike Glennon miss time due to injury.
Sanchez (knee) will enter training camp as the backup quarterback to Mike Glennon, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
Dickerson reported this after general manager Ryan Pace made this statement during the team's first press conference of training camp. With first-round draft choice Mitch Trubisky having made just 13 starts at the collegiate level, it appears the organization is committed to letting the rookie learn on the job while being buried on the depth chart, allowing Sanchez to serve as Mike Glennon's direct backup.
Sanchez injured his knee in OTAs Tuesday but is expected back by training camp, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The injury is reportedly nothing major, but it will keep Connor Shaw on the roster for now, after it was rumored he was released earlier this morning. Look for more updates to come once training camp rolls around. With the rumors of Shaw's release, it appears the Bears have solidified their quarterback depth chart, comprised of Sanchez, Mike Glennon and rookie Mitchell Trubisky. However, that could change if Sanchez's knee continues to be an issue.
After visiting with team officials Wednesday, Sanchez and the Bears finalized a one-year deal with the veteran late Thursday. The Bears gave Mike Glennon a multi-year deal earlier in the offseason, so Sanchez's arrival in Chicago is primarily to add depth behind the former Buccaneer. Sanchez served as Dak Prescott's backup in Dallas last season and appeared in two games, completing 10-of-18 passes for 93 yards and two interceptions.
