  Bears | Shaun Draughn to make roster    Fri Aug 29, 09:20 PM

Chicago Bears RB Shaun Draughn is projected to not only make the 53-man roster, but he is slotted as the primary backup to starter RB Matt Forte. FB Tony Fiammetta and rookie RB Ka'Deem Carey project as the No. 3 and No. 4 running backs.

  Bears | David Fales likely to be No. 3    Fri Aug 29, 08:25 PM

Chicago Bears QB David Fales is expected to make the 53-man roster as the No. 3 quarterback behind starter QB Jay Cutler and primary backup QB Jimmy Clausen.

Footballguys view: Fales has a pop-gun arm, but his elite anticipation helps him look better. In super deep dynasty leagues we're keeping an eye on Fales because of his head coach. Marc Trestman is known as the "quarterback whisperer" for a reason. For the love of God, he rejuvenated Jimmy Clausen's career---anything is possible with Trestman at the helm.

  Bears | Santonio Holmes making case for spot    Fri Aug 29, 01:46 PM

Chicago Bears WR Santonio Holmes displayed good burst and explosion on a 32-yard touchdown catch in the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, as he tries to make the team's final roster. Holmes also had a 30-yard punt return that showed off his athleticism. 'You see the explosion in him,' head coach Marc Trestman said. 'He caught a short throw, turned and ran, separated from the defense. That's a good sign.' Holmes' catch was his only haul of the game.

Footballguys view: The Bears are looking for a WR3 behind Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. With second-year pro Marquess Wilson sidelined by a collarbone injury, Holmes could be that guy. We'll see if he's done enough during his limited time with the Bears to make a positive impression.

  Bears | Jordan Palmer released    Sun Aug 24, 06:45 PM

The Chicago Bears released QB Jordan Palmer.

Footballguys view: Marc Trestman does it again! Last year he rejuvenated the career of Josh McCown as the backup to Jay Cutler. This year, Trestman has turned Panthers bust Jimmy Clausen into a decent player. Behind Cutler, we could see Clausen actually have fantasy value in the event of an injury.

  Bears | Eight players cut    Sat Aug 23, 11:18 PM

The Chicago Bears have released SS Adrian Wilson, DT Nate Collins and OG Dylan Gandy. The team also informed RB Michael Ford, WR Greg Herd, WR Kofi Hughes, CB Derricus Purdy and CB Peyton Thompson that they have been waived.

Footballguys view: Ford was not impressive this year in training camp or the preseason. The Bears selected Kadeem Carey in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL draft to be the primary backup behind Matt Forte. Shaun Draughn has looked good in camp, and he's essentially taken Ford's spot.

   Bears | Jared Allen misses game    Sat Aug 23, 10:27 AM

Chicago Bears DE Jared Allen (shoulder) did not play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 22, due to a sore shoulder.

Footballguys view: The Bears want to do what they can to have Allen near 100 percent by the start of the regular season. Keeping him out of this week's preseason game is a wise move.

  Bears | Jordan Mills in danger for Week 1    Wed Aug 20, 08:16 AM

Chicago Bears OT Jordan Mills (foot) is in danger of missing Week 1. He has worn a walking boot sporadically throughout camp after January surgery to repair a broken metatarsal in his left foot.

Footballguys view: The Bears offensive line is in much better shape than it was two years ago. You want full health, but this shouldn't be too big of a blow to the line as long as the other four starters can stay on the field.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson likely out until midseason    Mon Aug 18, 08:31 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (collarbone) could be out until at least midseason after undergoing surgery to repair a broken collarbone, a person with knowledge of the injury said Monday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: Without Wilson in the lineup, we'll see guys like Josh Morgan and Santonio Holmes compete for the WR3 spot. We were excited about Wilson this year, but don't share the same enthusiasm for either Morgan or Holmes. Keep both on your waiver wire speed dial if they start to produce beyond expectations.

  Bears | Josh Morgan to see time as No. 3 WR    Mon Aug 18, 06:47 PM

Chicago Bears WR Josh Morgan will work as the No. 3 wide receiver during practice this week and could also fill that role during the third preseason game, according to head coach Marc Trestman.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Morgan can hold off veteran Santonio Holmes for the WR3 position in Chicago. Morgan has a better size/speed combination, but he's been unable to play up to his potential as a pro. Holmes agreed to terms with the Bears on Saturday as he looks to get his NFL career back on track.

  Bears | Agree to terms with Santonio Holmes    Sat Aug 16, 10:32 AM

The Chicago Bears agreed to terms with WR Santonio Holmes (Jets) Saturday, Aug. 16. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: This signing had to happen after the Bears lost Marquess Wilson to a collarbone injury that will keep him out for several weeks to begin the regular season. Holmes is going to compete for the WR3 spot in Chicago with Josh Morgan. Keep an eye on Holmes the rest of the preseason to see if he's got anything left in the tank.

  Bears | Michael Ford well behind in battle    Sat Aug 16, 12:12 AM

Chicago Bears RB Michael Ford is behind both RBs Ka'Deem Carey and Shaun Draughn due to inconsistency, head coach Marc Trestman said Friday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: Ford is no lock to make the final roster. We like his size and instincts for running the football. Ford was in a RBBC at LSU, but he's got an intriguing skill set with starter's upside. He won't play up to that potential if he doesn't start getting more consistent in practice for the Bears.

  Bears | Could keep only two quarterbacks    Fri Aug 15, 03:55 PM

The Chicago Bears could only keep two quarterbacks on the final roster, according to head coach Marc Trestman. 'We're going to leave everything open,' Trestman said.

Footballguys view: Trestman is amazing. He built Josh McCown into a quality reserve (and eventual starter) last year, and now he's rebuilding the career of Jimmy Clausen. We'll see if Clausen can beat out Jordan Palmer for the primary backup job behind Jay Cutler. Rookie David Fales might make it to the practice squad this year.

  Bears | Zachary Miller to miss time    Fri Aug 15, 01:55 PM

Chicago Bears TE Zachary Miller (foot) will miss time with potential ligament damage in his foot. X-rays were negative, but Miller is scheduled to undergo an MRI.

Footballguys view: Miller is a great athlete, but he's had trouble staying healthy since he came into the league as an option quarterback from Nebraska-Omaha.
