Footballguys view: Good news for Bennett owners, though with that locker room who knows what might happen. We do expect Bennett to put up borderline TE1 numbers this week against New England. but keep your expectations humble.

  Bears | Jay Cutler turning ball over frequently    Mon Oct 20, 12:10 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler threw an interception and fumbled twice in the team's Week 7 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Cutler has turned the ball over multiple times in all four of the team's losses this year, but he hasn't turned the ball over once in any of the team's three wins.

Footballguys view: The opposition has had a field day when playing against the Bears. Opponents have scored 37 total points off Cutler's turnovers in 2014. The Dolphins sacked Cutler three times, and he somehow managed only 190 yards and a passing touchdown in Week 7.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall unhappy with QB    Sun Oct 19, 06:09 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall called out QB Jay Cutler in a heated locker room discussion after the team's Week 7 loss against the Miami Dolphins, a source said Sunday, Oct. 19. The source said there 'are some very selfish individuals in the locker room.' But it's not out of the ordinary for Marshall to strongly voice his opinion to Cutler, as the two are close friends off the field. Marshall also reportedly yelled at PK Robbie Gould.

Footballguys view: This is probably something would stand out less if Marshall and Cutler didn't have pre-existing narratives that are continued with this story. It shouldn't affect your view of them heading into a "get well" game against the weak Patriots defense.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson taking things slow    Thu Oct 16, 01:06 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (collarbone) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15, and head coach Marc Trestman said Wilson will be brought back slowly. Wilson is on the Active/Reserve/Injured list and will be allowed to play in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Wilson won't be a factor whether he is active or not--at least not immediately. With Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, running back Matt Forte and tight end Martellus Bennett all higher on the pecking order than a guy coming off the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall's injury was serious    Thu Oct 9, 05:21 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) said that the ankle injury he suffered in Week 1 should have kept him out for around four weeks, but he battled through it and convinced the team to continue letting him play. He caught three touchdowns in Week 2, but has just six catches in three games since. "So last week was the first week where we really had a chance to get me involved," Marshall said. "The first two weeks, the doctors ruled me out. They said I wasn't going to play and I went to them and said, 'Just make it a game-time decision.''

Footballguys view: Marshall showing off his trademark toughness here. Fantasy owners have been frustrated by his inconsistent production, but he's getting healthier, and that should help his fantasy numbers. Head coach Marc Trestman has acknowledged that Marshall has noticeably improved in the last two weeks.

  Bears | Offensive line hurts Matt Forte    Mon Oct 6, 10:49 PM

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte averaged 3.6 yards per carry on 17 carries in Week 5, and head coach Marc Trestman said missed assignments and poor technique on the part of the offensive line led to Forte's inefficiency.

Footballguys view: Forte averages 2.15 yards before contact per rush (league average 2.53), and that shows the offensive line isn't opening up huge holes. We'll see if the line can get things together. If they do, then Forte's numbers should trend up.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall needs more touches    Mon Oct 6, 04:21 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall needs more touches, according to head coach Marc Trestman. Marshall saw just five targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

The Chicago Bears have declared SS Ahmad Dixon, OT Charles Leno Jr., DL Jeremiah Ratliff, OT Jermon Bushrod, C Roberto Garza, LB Shea McClellin, CB Sherrick McManis inactive for Week 5.

Footballguys view: With Bushrod out, the Bears will start Michael Ola at left tackle. The Panthers had a defensive line to exploit that last year, but with no Greg Hardy and a hobbled Charles Johnson instead this year, Jay Cutler should be fine.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall feeling better    Sat Oct 4, 01:20 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is feeling better about his hampered ankle injury. Marshall said he feels more explosive and feels like he can 'do pretty much everything.'

Footballguys view: The injury is a concern, but we expect him to be playing and very effective against the Carolina Panthers. He should be a fringe WR1 this week and with an equally dangerous Alshon Jeffery across from Marshall, defenses can't key only on him.
