Week 1 vs. SD
Receiving: 3 / 38 / 0 on 3 targets
With rookie TE Greg Olsen out, most expected Clark to see more action than he did. He did make the most of his targets by catching all three passes that were thrown his way, including one from the shadow of his own end zone for 24 yards.
Week 2 vs. KC
Receiving: 4 / 29 / 0 on 5 targets
Clark was heavily involved in the passing game, serving as Grossman's main target during the first three quarters as the Bears were content with moving the ball down the field in short chunks and taking time off of the clock.
Week 3 vs. DAL
Receiving: 2 / 58 / 0 on 3 targets
Clark biggest contribution on offense came in the third quarter on a catch that he made that went for 52 yards. On the play he secured the pass, bounced off of safety Roy Williams, and took the ball all the way down to the Dallas 22 yard line. Clark's only other catch in the game went for six yards. He was also targeted on the Bears' fake field goal attempt.
Week 4 vs. DET
Receiving: 7 / 44 / 1 on 10 targets
The Bears needed Clark to block much of the afternoon, but he managed to slip off the line and find soft spots in the Lions' zone defense. Overall, Clark had a productive day and scored a touchdown with 52 seconds left to draw the team to within a field goal.
Week 5 vs. GB
Receiving: 3 / 62 / 1 on 4 targets
Clark and Griese have chemistry, perhaps dating back to their time in Denver, according to NBC's John Madden. Clark led the team in receiving yards and caught the game winning 34 yard touchdown on a play action pass where he was wide open and Griese made a perfect throw.
Week 6 vs. MIN

Receiving: 5 / 76 / 1 on 5 targets
Desmond Clark caught all five of his targets for 76 yards and a touchdown.

In the third quarter Clark had a beautiful 44 yard gain on a perfectly thrown ball by Rex Grossman. Though generally not considered the big play threat of the tight end duo with Greg Olsen, it was Clark that was making all of the big plays at the position in this one.
