Veteran safety Tashaun Gip­son and rookie cor­ner­back Jay­lon John­son be­came the an­swers to the Bears’ two re­main­ing starter ques­tions when the team re­leased its depth chart Mon­day. Gip­son beat out Deon Bush, while John­son’s start­ing role seemed more ap­par­ent when the Bears cut Kevin To­liver and did not re-sign him to the prac­tice squad. Buster Skrine, who played out­side cor­ner­back at times in camp, will be the Bears’ start­ing slot cor­ner­back. Depth charts are hardly gospel. For ex­am­ple, the Bears list Cor­dar­relle Pat­ter­son as a re­ceiver, although he played run­ning back more dur­ing train­ing camp. The an­nual disclaimer out of the way, here’s the Bears’ depth chart for their sea­son opener Sun­day against the Lions. — Pa­trick Fin­ley
