    Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (forearm) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a fractured forearm Monday, Oct. 24.

    Huddle Up: Jay Cutler has been cleared to play, so he'll take over for Hoyer with Matt Barkely now serving as the backup. Cutler has been underwhelming this season and during his Bears tenure, though, and the Chicago quarterback situation is one to avoid.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 7:25am ET

    Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) is scheduled to undergo surgery Sunday, Oct. 23, on his broken left forearm. He will be sidelined for at least eight weeks and could be placed on injured reserve.

    Huddle Up: Matt Barkley will serve as Chicago's starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, with Jay Cutler (thumb) out indefinitely, but he is not a viable fantasy option. It had been hoped that Hoyer could make a late-season return but the odds of that happening now appear slim.

  • Posted: 10/22/2016 7:13am ET

    Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) is expected to undergo surgery to repair the broken radius bone in his left arm suffered during Week 7's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to a source. A late-season return has not been ruled out.

    Huddle Up: QB Jay Cutler (thumb) remains out indefinitely, so Matt Barkley will be Chicago's primary signal-caller for the foreseeable future. However, Barkley is not a viable fantasy option and all Bears pass-catchers are likely to experience a dip in production for as long as he's in there.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 7:27pm ET

    Updating a previous story, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) was diagnosed with a broken left arm, according to head coach John Fox.

    Huddle Up: With Jay Cutler (thumb) still out indefinitely, Matt Barkley is now in control of the Bears' offense. Hoyer can consider himself lucky in the sense he suffered the injury on his non-throwing arm, but he is still looking at an extended absence in all likelihood. Barkley has looked competent so far, but his presence is still a downgrade for all Chicago pass-catchers.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 6:37pm ET

    Updating previous items, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (forearm) will not return to the Thursday, Oct. 20, game against the Green Bay Packers due to a forearm injury.

    Huddle Up: Not much is known about how long Hoyer will be out, although things did not look good when Hoyer left for the locker room. For now, QB Matt Barkley is in the game, and QB Jay Cutler may have just gotten a reprieve in the short term. Stay tuned to see what the Bears do for their next move.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 6:13pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) was shaken up in the second quarter of the Thursday, Oct. 20, game against the Green Bay Packers. QB Matt Barkley was seen warming up on the sidelines, but Hoyer was also seen walking the sidelines before heading to the locker room holding his left arm.

    Huddle Up: This is a fluid situation, so stay tuned for further details on whether Hoyer comes back in or Barkley has to finish the game.

  • Posted: 10/17/2016 4:48pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer is the first quarterback since at least 1960 to throw for at least 300 passing yards in four straight games.

    Huddle Up: Not bad for a backup quarterback eh? Hoyer has taken the starting job from Jay Cutler and run away with it. It seems unlikely that Cutler would retain the starting position when he returns to good health. Hoyer's success can't be ignored. He's a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 this week facing a subpar Green Bay Packers pass defense.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 3:02pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer went 30-for-49 for 302 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Hoyer has thrown for at least 300 yards in every game since becoming the starting quarterback and has six touchdowns during that span. He will be facing the Green Bay Packers on short rest in Week 7 and can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 7:51pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer completed 33 of his 43 pass attempts for 397 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Hoyer continues to shine with three straight 300-yard performances and two touchdowns in each of the outings. Hoyer has performed like a low-end QB1 since taking the reins for the injured Jay Cutler. He'll look to continue in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 8:06am ET

    Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer could win the starting quarterback job if he continues to play well while QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is sidelined.

    Huddle Up: Hoyer has thrown for at least 300 yards and two touchdowns in each of the last two games and likely will stay in the lineup if he continues to play well. Owners in daily fantasy leagues should consider Hoyer a starting option, and he could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 1:58pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer threw for 302 yards and two touchdowns in a 17-14 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Oct. 2.

    Huddle Up: If Hoyer keeps this up, we could have a case of a backup unseating an injured QB. You may want to pick up Hoyer and stash him on your bench to see what happens when Jay Cutler returns -- if he does.

  • Posted: 9/24/2016 7:38pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer has pointed out throughout the week that he has not had many reps with WR Alshon Jeffery this season.

    Huddle Up: Despite the lack of reps, you can expect Hoyer to look Jeffery's way early and often against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3, assuming Jeffery can play through a knee injury. If Jeffery is on the field, he has WR2 upside in all formats.

  • Posted: 5/1/2016 2:09pm ET

    Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears over the weekend.

    Huddle Up: With only 2014 sixth-round pick David Fales and Matt Blanchard behind Jay Cutler on the depth chart, the Bears were in need of a more-proven insurance policy, and Hoyer fills the bill. It definitely will take a Cutler injury, though, for Hoyer to see the field in 2016.

  • Posted: 4/29/2016 8:21pm ET

    Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is not a part of the Denver Broncos' immediate plans. The Broncos informed Hoyer on Friday, April 29, that they will not be signing him. Denver will stick with three quarterbacks for now because general manager John Elway wants QBs Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian to receive as many repetitions as possible.

    Huddle Up: The Jets, Bears or -- as a last result -- a return to the Patriots are Hoyer's best options now that Denver is out of the picture. And as for the Broncos, the path to opening Week 1 as the team's starter is getting clearer by the day for Sanchez as Lynch figures to need some time to develop.

  • Posted: 4/21/2016 4:28pm ET

    QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) finished his meeting with the Denver Broncos on and took a physical Thursday, April 21, but there is no rush for him to sign with a team.

    Huddle Up: Reportedly, five other teams, including the Jets and the Bears -- he's visited the former, and his next stop is Chicago -- are interested in Hoyer, so it definitely behooves the QB to bide his time and weigh the best offer.

  • Posted: 4/19/2016 10:05am ET

    Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) will visit the New York Jets Tuesday, April 19.

    Huddle Up: The Jets are still seeking a quarterback, and with Brock Osweiler landing in Houston Hoyer is looking for a job. At least he's a somewhat proven commodity who would be able to find Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker on a regular basis.

  • Posted: 4/17/2016 10:28pm ET

    Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is expected to receive interest from the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Add the Jets to the mix of teams interested in Hoyer, and that might spur some action in the negotiations with Ryan Fitzpatrick.

  • Posted: 4/17/2016 6:02pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer was released Sunday, April 17, according to various reports.

    Huddle Up: Hoyer is out after his up-and-down one-season stay in Houston ended with a disastrous playoff performance, and there are early indications that two teams (the Steelers and Broncos) are immediately showing some interest.

  • Posted: 4/1/2016 7:25pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer has drawn interest from the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Perhaps the Jets are trying to stoke the fire under Ryan Fitzpatrick and his agent, who are looking to land a big payday. Still, the wild-card meltdown aside, Hoyer did post solid numbers last season in Houston, and is a legitimate option if Fitzpatrick overplays his hand.

  • Posted: 3/10/2016 4:15pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer is being shopped on the trade market.

    Huddle Up: Hoyer's ugly wild-card playoff performance (4 interceptions, 1 fumble) in a 30-0 loss to the Chiefs is the last impression everyone had of Hoyer, but he was far from a disaster in the regular season, throwing for 2,606 yards, 19 TDs and seven picks in 11 games. He could find himself dealt as low-risk option for a team in need of a QB.
