Kush, 27, re-signed with the Bears on a two-year deal this past offseason after appearing in eight games last year (four starts), and projected to be depth at both of the guard positions. Per the Sun-Times, Cody Whitehair has been working on backing up the guard spots, with Hroniss Grasu playing center.
