"You have to prepare for something like this possibly happening," Chandler said. "I've been trying to prepare all season and this week was a little easier, getting all the practice reps."
At this point the Bears plan on using Jim Miller as the backup to Chandler. However, that isn't a guarantee as Miller missed his third straight practice on Friday because pain in his right shoulder and elbow from tendinitis was still too severe.
"Jim's shoulder is still a little sore, so I'll get a look this week and I'm excited about playing again," Chandler said. "I hope it's not too big an adjustment. It's a new team, new guys, but I've been around them since last spring and we had pretty good practices all week long."
