  Bears | Leonard Floyd injured MCL, PCL    Wed Nov 22, 12:05 AM

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears LB Leonard Floyd (knee) suffered damage to both the MCL and PCL in his right knee, according to head coach John Fox.

Footballguys view: Floyd avoiding damaging his ACL, so that's good news but the talented defender is going to miss time. Surgery remains a possibility for Floyd, and he could miss the remainder of the season.

  Bears | Tarik Cohen totals 13 touches    Sun Nov 19, 04:50 PM

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed nine times for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions and he added four receptions for 15 yards on a team-high six targets.

Footballguys view: Cohen was finally worked back into the game plan against the Lions and he was a big contributor. He soared over the pylon for his touchdown and got himself back into flex consideration next week against an Eagles defense that matches up well with Cohen's backfield partner, Jordan Howard.

  Bears | Adam Shaheen posts 41 yards, TD    Sun Nov 19, 04:50 PM

Chicago Bears TE Adam Shaheen posted four receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions on four targets.

Footballguys view: With Zach Miller and Dion Sims out, Shaheen is starting to grow into the #1 tight end as a rookie. He'll be in streamer consideration next week.

  Bears | Dontrelle Inman leads team in receiving    Sun Nov 19, 04:49 PM

Chicago Bears WR Dontrelle Inman posted three receptions for a team-high 43 yards on five targets in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Inman was a solid PPR play in his debut in the team's starting lineup last week, but his production was more modest this week. He's only emergency depth against the Eagles next week.

  Bears | Jordan Howard runs for 125 yards, TD    Sun Nov 19, 04:48 PM

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 15 times for 125 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Howard had a big run to get the Bears going early and he was able to score to complete a solid RB1 day. He faces the best run defense next week at Philadelphia, so you might want to bench him despite his contributions this year.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky just falls short    Sun Nov 19, 04:48 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 18 of his 30 pass attempts for 179 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Trubisky made enough plays to put the Bears in position to send the game to overtime, but Connor Barth missed a 46-yard attempt. Trubisky doesn't deserve consideration in typical leagues, but he'll have to throw a lot next week against the Eagles.

  Bears | Tarik Cohen drawing significant attention    Thu Nov 16, 12:30 AM

Chicago Bears OC Dowell Loggains indicated that teams have been defending RB Tarik Cohen with cornerbacks or even double teaming the rookie in the passing game. The comments were made during Loggins' press conference Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Footballguys view: Benny Cunningham also got more snaps in the pass game, so that had an impact as well. Both those things make Cohen an "avoid" this weekend and until they get things sorted out.

  Bears | Chicago makes practice squad moves    Mon Nov 13, 06:05 PM

The Chicago Bears signed WR Tanner Gentry to their practice squad Monday, Nov. 13. The team also waived WR Darreus Rogers from their practice squad.

Footballguys view: Gentry is on and off the roster so much it will make your head spin. They seem to like him because they always get him back on the practice squad after cutting him. The UDFA rookie from Wyoming is a player we're monitoring in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Bears | Josh Bellamy finds the end zone    Sun Nov 12, 09:58 PM

Chicago Bears WR Josh Bellamy posted two receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers on seven targets.

Footballguys view: Most of Bellamy's yards came on a 46-yard touchdown reception. While we don't see him doing massive damage on a week to week basis, he has some upside and if he continues to get the same amount of targets (seven this week), could be a decent flex play depending on matchup.

  Bears | Dontrelle Inman racks up 88 yards    Sun Nov 12, 09:57 PM

Chicago Bears WR Dontrelle Inman made his team debut in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers, posting six receptions for 88 yards.

Footballguys view: We'll need to see more before we get too excited, but he's about the only show in town for Mitch Trubisky to throw to. He should be owned in all leagues and we think he will at least have WR4 value going forward as he will get plenty of targets from the rookie quarterback.

  Bears | Jordan Howard has mediocre game    Sun Nov 12, 09:57 PM

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 15 times for 54 yards in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Howard struggled to get anything going against what has generally been a bad run defense. We expect him to bounce back and aren't alarmed, though.

  Bears | Two touches for Tarik Cohen    Sun Nov 12, 09:53 PM

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed once for one yard in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers and he added one catch for 10 yards on two targets.

Footballguys view: A combination of throwing the ball a ton and clogged running lanes kept the Bears ground attack in neutral. Chicago leaned on Jordan Howard when they tried to run the ball and Cohen was an afterthought.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky throws for 297 yards    Sun Nov 12, 09:53 PM

Chicago Bears WR Mitchell Trubisky completed 21 of his 35 pass attempts for 297 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: This was a surprising day of production, if for no other reason than the Packers struggle to stop the run and yet the Bears seemed to want to throw the ball a lot. The Bears and Trubisky were most effective late in the game but even then, aside from one 46-yard touchdown pass to Josh Bellamy, Trubisky and the offense stalled in the red zone. We saw some things we liked in terms of his development, but Trubisky is a long ways from reliable.

The Chicago Bears have declared CB Bryce Callahan, LB Danny Trevathan, TE Dion Sims, QB Mark Sanchez, DL Roy Robertson-Harris, CB Sherrick McManis, OT Tom Compton inactive for Week 10.

Footballguys view: Sims being out puts rookie Adam Shaheen in a big role today, although the Bears prefer to run and probably won't have to attempt many passes against the Packers today.

  Bears | Zach Miller placed on IR    Tue Nov 7, 06:33 PM

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (leg) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 7. His season is over.

Footballguys view: Doctors were able to save Miller's leg, and now he begins the long road to recovery. A sixth-round pick out of Nebraska-Omaha in 2009, Miller's future in the NFL is not set after yet another injury...and an incredibly devastating one at that.

  Bears | Colin Thompson will join Chicago    Tue Nov 7, 02:57 PM

Free-agent TE Colin Thompson (Giants) is expected to be signed to the Chicago Bears' practice squad Tuesday, Nov. 7.

Footballguys view: The Bears needed more depth at the position with Zach Miller (leg) done for the year. Thompson played college ball at Temple where he was mostly used as a blocker, catching 19 passes for 208 yards in three seasons. The Giants picked him up as a UDFA this year but an appendectomy in training camp cost him the chance at a spot on their 53-man roster.

  Bears | Ben Braunecker promoted    Tue Nov 7, 01:41 PM

Chicago Bears TE Ben Braunecker was added from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Nov. 7.
