  Bears | Anthony Miller not facing prolonged recovery    Thu Jan 17, 01:06 AM

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) should not miss significant time during the offseason following his upcoming shoulder surgery, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who believes Miller will be ready to go at or near the start of the team's offseason program.

Footballguys view: Good news for the young receiver here. He injured the shoulder in Week 3 but was able to tough it out through 15 games in 2018. When Miller is ready to return, expect the Bears to take it easy on him and ease him back into action.

  Bears | Jordan Howard has little trade value?    Thu Jan 17, 12:58 AM

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard holds little value if the team decides to shop him around during the offseason, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who points out Howard is in the final year of his rookie deal and that running back is one of the NFL's most replaceable positions.

Footballguys view: Howard had less than 1,000 yards rushing in 2018, the first time in his career he's fell below that mark. He just missed that total with 935 rushing yards in 2018. We'll see if the Bears want to go with a more dynamic runner in 2019. Biggs believes Howard's greatest value in 2019 would be as depth for the Bears.

  Bears | Chicago unsure about pursing Kareem Hunt    Mon Jan 14, 02:30 PM

Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) reportedly spoke to Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy by phone one week ago, but the team remains noncommittal on the idea of pursuing Hunt at this point, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: We'll have a better feel about the potential interest in Hunt once the length of his suspension is revealed. Hunt is currently undergoing investigation for three off-field incidents, including the one that got him booted from the Chiefs in the 2018 season.

  Bears | Anthony Miller to have shoulder surgery    Mon Jan 14, 02:05 PM

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) will undergo surgery on his left shoulder at some point during the offseason, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: Miller fought this shoulder problem for most of his rookie season in 2018. He finished the year with 33 catches for 423 yards and seven touchdowns. His future is bright in the pros, especially as he'll continue to build chemistry with QB Mitchell Trubisky.

  Bears | Chicago signs 10 to Reserve/Futures deals    Tue Jan 8, 07:57 PM

Chicago Bears RB Ryan Nall, WR Tanner Gentry, WR Cyril Grayson, OL Dejon Allen, DL Abdullah Anderson, LB Josh Woods, DB John Franklin, DB Michael Joseph, DB Jonathon Mincy and LB James Vaughters (CFL) were signed to Reserve/Futures contracts Tuesday, Jan. 8.

Footballguys view: We'll continue to monitor Nall and Gentry in super deep dynasty leagues. Nall is a big back, nicknamed 'Wrecking Nall' in college at Oregon State. He's a thumper who can grind down an opponent. Gentry is a sure-handed slot receiver with the quickness to make defenders miss.

  Bears | Trey Burton injury note    Tue Jan 8, 01:48 AM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) said Monday, Jan. 7, that he missed the club's Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 6, after he 'started to feel something' in his groin following practice Friday, Jan. 4, despite initially having no limitations. By Saturday, Jan. 5, it had 'locked up,' which he said was his 'body's way of handling threats' to his health.

Footballguys view: Burton signed with the Bears in free agency last spring and had 54 catches for 569 yards and six touchdowns in his first season in Chicago. If healthy in 2019 (and this injury should not linger into next season), Burton has TE1 upside for Fantasy GMs.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 4, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.

Chicago Bears S Eddie Jackson (ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision in the team's NFC Wildcard game versus the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 6, according to head coach Matt Nagy.

The Chicago Bears re-signed QB Tyler Bray to the practice squad Tuesday, Jan. 1. In a corresponding move, OL Willie Beavers was released.
