On Friday, injury resulted in the dismissal of some of the Bears’ cornerbacks, paving the way for players like Tavon Young to shine. Rookie Kyler Gordon, most recently serving as the opening Nickel Corner, was in street clothes, with Young replacing him. Both were effective in the conditions leading up to the former Baltimore Ravens run game and against Darnell Mooney. First, Young beat Mooney on a run drill, got the best of him and pushed him to the ground. Then, he tipped a ball aimed towards Mooney in the redzone, leading to an imperfection.

We’ll see how long the Bears keep Gordon on the nickel spot but Young made a very good case for the position on Friday.
