Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 10/2/15 2:12pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) will miss his third straight game in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Jeffery is officially listed as questionable, but it sounds like the Bears and Jeffery already have decided to play it safe and give the WR an extra week to receover. Of course, that's little consolation for the fantasy GMs who are counting on Jeffery as a starting wideout, but they're going to have to make alternate plans for a third straight week.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 10/2/15 8:20pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 2, and is listed as questionable for the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Despite the questionable tag, Jeffery is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Raiders. It will be Jeffery's third missed game in a row but with the Bears struggling, they obviously don't want to rush their star receiver back too soon.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/30/15 6:04pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 30, and worked on a side field with a member of the training staff. Jeffery has missed two straight games but is likely to return in Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Hamstrings, of course, can be tricky and are aggravated easily, but if Jeffery can make it through the next few practices without a flare-up, count on having available to use Sunday against The Raiders.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 9/30/15 6:04pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 30, according to head coach John Fox. Fox said Cutler looked good and had a good day of practice after missing Week 3. Cutler had been expected to miss a minimum of two games. Cutler must prove he can avoid the rush and escape the pocket before he'll be allowed to return.
Huddle Up: Certainly Fox and OC Adam Gase can't be thrilled with the Jimmy Clausen-led offense Sunday as the Bears wound up punting after all 10 of their offensive possessions in the shutout loss in Seattle and are going to do everything possible to get Cutler back on the field. Of course, it's not wise to push him too quickly, but let's see if Cutler can build on his good start Wednesday over the next few days.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 9/25/15 2:17pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) and WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) have both been ruled out for Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, according to head coach John Fox. QB Jimmy Clausen will make the start.
Huddle Up: The injury bug continues to hit the Bears hard as Cutler will miss his first start of the season and Jeffery will sit out a second straight game. Eddie Royal, Marquess Wilson and Josh Bellamy will try to pick up the slack for Jeffery, but really no Chicago offensive player outside of Matt Forte is worth considering this week with the team heading to the Northwest to take on an angry 0-2 Seahawks bunch in their home opener.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/25/15 3:37pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Sept. 25, but he is probable for Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Yeah, Forte should play but the matchup is certainly less than ideal with Jimmy Clausen in at QB facing what should be an angry 0-2 Seahawks' D in their home opener.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 9/24/15 9:11am ET
Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) was expected to miss at least two weeks due to a hamstring injury, but head coach John Fox has not yet ruled him out for Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Because clearly the smart thing to do would be to toss an injured Cutler out there in the Seahawks' home opener. Maybe this is how the Bears rid themselves of Smokin' Jay.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/24/15 6:53pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Jeffery hasn't practiced since experiencing hamstring tightness a week ago and is in danger of missing a second straight game unless he can show some improvement Friday.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/23/15 6:09pm ET
Chicago Bears WRs Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (hip) were held out of practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: New week, same story for Jeffery, who missed the Bears' Week 2 game with his hammy issue. Royal played but hip and back issues kept him out Wednesday. We should have a better idea by Friday if either is in serious danger of missing Sunday's game in Seattle.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 9/21/15 4:14pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) suffered a strained hamstring in the team's Week 2 game, according to head coach John Fox. The team will provide an update on Cutler's status Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Early reports don't sound encouraging for Cutler playing Sunday. If he can't go, Jimmy Clausen will start for the Bears against Seattle.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 9/21/15 7:54pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) will miss at least two weeks because of the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 2, according to sources. Jimmy Clausen will be the starting quarterback for the time being.
Huddle Up: Clasuen's first assignment will be facing an angry 0-2 Seahawks squad in their home opener Sunday. Downgrade all Chicago pass-catchers even more than you were going to.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/18/15 1:48pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) left practice Thursday, Sept. 17, with hamstring tightness and was held out of workouts Friday.
Huddle Up: Jeffery was able to play last week with a calf strain, but it's not good when a new injury issue crops up late in the week. In short, we're headed toward a second straight game-time decision on the Bears' No. 1 WR, and Marquess Wilson and Eddie Royal will be the biggest fantasy beneficiaries if Jeffery can't give it a go Sunday.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/12/15 3:01pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) has been running well and has looked good at what he's done on the field, according to head coach John Fox. Jeffery is officially listed as questionable for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Jeffery will be a game-time decision. Fantasy owners will need to have another options in case Jeffery doesn't play but it appears he's trending in the right direction.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/11/15 3:26pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) was limited again in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and he's listed as questionable Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers. Head coach John Fox is optimistic Jeffery will play.
Huddle Up: It sounds like a game-time decision, and even if he does suit up against the Packers, there's no telling how effective he'll be. Go ahead and roll with him, though, if he plays unless you have a comparable alternative.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/10/15 6:54pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) was limited in practice again Thursday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Different day, same story for the Bears' No. 1 WR who remains a major question mark for Sunday's season opener against the Packers. Let's see if Friday's pivotal practice brings any better news.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/9/15 3:47pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) practiced some Wednesday, Sept. 9, but was not in full pads. Jeffery said he's not committing to playing in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers, adding that he's taking it one day at a time with his calf injury.
Huddle Up: It was at least a good sign to see Jeffery back on the practice field, but his non-committal stance on Sunday is a red flag. There are still a few days for things to change, but definitely start getting your alternative WR plans lined up in the meantime.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 9/9/15 6:39pm ET
Chicago Bears WRs Eddie Royal (hip) and Marquess Wilson (hamstring) were limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Chicago's top four wideouts are all battling health issues, and that should spell a ton of targets Sunday for TE Martellus Bennett and RB Matt Forte.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/8/15 10:13pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) is making strides with his calf injury and hopes to play against the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Jeffery was drafted as low-end WR1 in most leagues, and we might have to go all the way up to game time Sunday to learn if he'll play with the calf issue that has hampered him most of the preseason.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 9/7/15 1:54pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (hip) returned to practice Monday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Royal sat out the Bears' third preseason game but he's on track to play Week 1 vs. Green Bay. Royal is a sneaky start for fantasy owners this week, especially with Alshon Jeffery dealing with a calf injury.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 9/7/15 1:54pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) was out of practice Monday, Sept. 7, in the portion open to the media.
Huddle Up: Jeffery has been dealing with a hamstring injury and the Bears haven't given much information about his status. The fact that he missed Monday's practice is a bit concerning but it doesn't mean he won't play against the Packers. Keep a close eye on Jeffery throughout the week.
Marquess Wilson - WRPosted 9/7/15 11:29pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Some rare good news for the Chicago WR corps with Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White still sidelined. Wilson missed half the preseason with his balky hammy but could be in line to start next Sunday if he can get through the week of practice.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/1/15 9:45pm ET
Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte on Tuesday, Sept. 1 sat out his second straight day of practice, but Chicago coaches later said the back was given a second straight "veterans' day" of rest.
Huddle Up: Forte is coming off a 368-touch season -- the highest since his 379-touch rookie year of 2008 -- and certainly can use the exctra time off, considering he'll turn 30 in December. He's a RB1 in both PPR and standard formats.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 8/26/15 5:35pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26, because of a hip injury. His status for the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, is uncertain at this point.
Huddle Up: Yikes -- another Chicago wideout, another injury to monitor. At this rate, Jay Cutler's opening-game WRs may be Rashad Lawrence and Cameron Meredith, who are currently leading the Bears in preseason catches.
Marquess Wilson - WRPosted 8/23/15 12:55pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson suffered a hamstring injury in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22, but head coach John Fox said the injury is not considered serious.
Huddle Up: Jay Cutler owners are hoping the coach will prove correct as the Bears are rapidly running out of healthy wideouts with veteran Alshon Jeffery and first-round pick Kevin White already on the shelf.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 8/18/15 4:59pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) will not play in the Bears' second preseason game Monday, Aug. 24, as he continues to heal from a calf strain. He will travel with the team, however.
Huddle Up: It's definitely been bad news for the Bears' WR corps this preseason, and expect the team to play it extra safe with their No. 1 wideout with first-round pick Kevin White already sidelined.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 8/17/15 9:53am ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) is no longer wearing a walking boot or using crutches, but he's still out of practice Monday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: No reason to rush Jeffery back to the lineup, especially with Kevin White already on the shelf on the other side. Jeffery's fantasy value bumped down a bit with the boot news over the weekend, but it should be on the rebound now.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 8/17/15 6:31pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) is no longer wearing a walking boot but is not ready to participate in practice at this point.
Huddle Up: Good news is coming in small increments for the Bears' beleaguered WR corps this month, and fortunately there are still four weeks to go before the regular season kicks off.
Kevin White - WRPosted 8/16/15 2:12pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (shin) said Saturday, Aug. 15, he wants to return to the field as soon as possible after his upcoming surgery to deal with a shin stress fracture, but he understands that may not be until next season. 'I know it's going to be a little while. If I can come back and am able to play a little bit in the season, we'll do it,' White said. 'If I'm feeling OK. ... If they want me out there, then I'll try my best to get out there. I want to come back as soon as possible,' White said.
Huddle Up: A tough blow for those fantasy GMs who took White in early drafts, and now with Alshon Jeffery (calf) also currently sidelined, the fantasy stock of backup wideouts Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson are on the rise.
Alshon Jeffery - WRPosted 8/15/15 1:07pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery's (calf) calf injury is not considered serious, and he should be ready for the start of the regular season, according to general manager Ryan Pace. Pace said Jeffery will not practice this week and will not play in the second preseason game.
Huddle Up: It sounds like the Bears are just being cautious with their No. 1 receiver. Jeffery should be all systems go for Week 1 when the Bears play the Packers.
Kevin White - WRPosted 8/15/15 1:07pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (shin) will undergo surgery to repair his shin injury and will miss at least the first six games of the regular season. General manager Ryan Pace said there is a chance White will miss the entire 2015 season.
Huddle Up: It's terrible news for White, who was expected to make a big impact as a rookie. His injury opens the door for Eddie Royal to make a big contribution in Chicago's passing game. Royal has already been receiving glowing reports in training camp and with this news his Round 12 ADP will be shooting up.
