  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 | Zachary Miller placed on IR    Fri Aug 15, 04:29 PM

The Chicago Bears placed TE Zachary Miller (ankle) on the Reserved/Injured list Friday, Aug. 15.

  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.

Chicago Bears TE Zachary Miller (undisclosed) was looked at by trainers on the sidelines and carted to the locker room during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Miller was an intriguing talent a few years ago when he came out of Nebraska-Omaha as an option quarterback. Injuries and inconsistencies derailed his career with the Jaguars and he's getting a fresh start with the Bears. This injury is unknown at this time, so stay tuned for the latest.

Footballguys view: Mostly this is a matter of resting some guys who are banged up but who they also know the value of already. If it goes beyond this game, then worry. For now, nothing to see here.

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett has been reinstated following a suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. He is expected to participate in the team's afternoon practice Sunday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: We're excited by what this Bears offense is going to look like in year two of the Marc Trestman system. Bennett will be a big part of the passing game behind wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. His ADP is TE12 (11.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bears | Speak by phone with Martellus Bennett    Wed Aug 6, 04:09 PM

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said he spoke with suspended TE Martellus Bennett Tuesday, Aug. 5. Trestman said Bennett has not been ruled out of the team's first preseason game Friday, Aug. 8. 'I did [speak with Bennett],' Trestman said. 'It was a very positive conversation. We touched base with each other, and I'll just leave it at that. We did what we said we were gonna do, and that was talk yesterday.'

Footballguys view: Trestman and Bennett will make up here. We'll see the "Black Unicorn" back out there soon enough. We're certain that rookie Kyle Fuller won't mess with him again. Bennett's form when he bodyslammed Fuller was reminiscent of Michael Westbrook taking down Stephen Davis years ago in Washington. Things happen, teammates get back out there...not a big deal when Week 1 rolls around.
