A few of the Bears cornerbacks were out due to injury on Friday, paving the way for players like Tavon Young to shine. Rookie Kyler Gordon, who had recently been working as the starting nickel corner, was in street clothes, with Young taking his place. The former Baltimore Raven was effective both in the run game and in passing situations going up against Darnell Mooney. First, Young beat Mooney on a running drill, getting the best of him and pushing him to the ground. Then, he tipped a ball targeted towards Mooney in the redzone, leading to an incompletion.

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