The Chicago Bears play their final pre-season game Thursday night, taking on the Cleveland Browns at 7:00 p.m. So far in pre-season action, the Bears have gone 1-and-2.

They have until Saturday to trim their roster down to 53 players. One player whose future remains up in the air is Dane Sanzenbacher. Undrafted after an impressive career at Ohio State, the receiver is making quite an impression with the Chicago Bears.

Is it enough to make the team? He says "not yet" and there's "still a lot to do this week." Sanzenbacher is one of several undrafted rookies with a legitimate chance to make the team. He's tied for second with six receptions for 57 yards through three preseason games and has opened more than a few eyes in the process.

The Bears start the regular season September 11 when they play the Atlanta Falcons at Soldier Field.
