  Bears | Tarik Cohen near new deal    Sat Sep 19, 12:50 PM

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen and the team are close to agreeing on a contract extension and it could get done Saturday, Sept. 19, following a week of 'fruitful discussions,' according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick out of North Carolina A&T in the 2017 NFL draft, Cohen has worked well as a receiving back and change-of-pace back for the Bears. He's not in line to get huge money, so it will be interesting to see what kind of contract the team puts together.

  Bears | Allen Robinson talks gain steam    Sat Sep 19, 12:14 PM

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson's contract extension talks with the team have resumed, according to sources, and while there remains a significant gap between the two sides, there is some growing momentum.

Footballguys view: Good news here as Robinson recently took down all references to the Bears on his social networking pages. There was a 'significant gap' in talks according to earlier reports but that may not be the case now. Things change quickly around here, and this is positive movement in the right direction. Stay tuned.

  Bears | Chicago's injury report for Week 2    Fri Sep 18, 03:09 PM

Chicago Bears LB Khalil Mack (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the New York Giants. LB Robert Quinn (ankle) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is also listed as questionable. WR Ted Ginn Jr. (rest), TE Jimmy Graham (rest) and DT Akiem Hicks (illness) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Mack doesn't seem to be 100% and Quinn missed last week, so this isn't a full strength Bears pass rush. Daniel Jones should have an easier time of it than he did versus the Steelers on Monday night.

  Bears | Jimmy Graham rests Wednesday    Wed Sep 16, 05:01 PM

Chicago Bears TE Jimmy Graham (non-injury) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: Graham was out there as a consistent target for Mitchell Trubisky in Week 1. He was targeted seven times but only came down with three catches...with one of those being a touchdown. The veteran is not the same player he used to be and his fantasy production is going to be dependent on how many times he gets into the end zone. Consider Graham a TE2 in Week 2.

The Chicago Bears have declared TE Eric Saubert, DL Mario Edwards Jr., OT Arlington Hambright, CB Duke Shelley, WR Riley Ridley and DL Robert Quinn inactive for Week 1.

  Bears | Chicago's injury report for Week 1    Fri Sep 11, 03:02 PM

Chicago Bears LB Robert Quinn (ankle) did not practice all week and has been listed as doubtful for Week 1 versus the Detroit Lions. LB Khalil Mack (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. RB David Montgomery (groin), WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee), LT Jason Spriggs (knee), WR Javon Wims (Achilles), OG Germain Ifedi (triceps) and CB Buster Skrine (finger) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 11, and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Bears pass rush will be weakened against a Lions offensive line that will be missing their right tackle, so these issues could cancel each other out. Either way, it's still not a great week to play Matthew Stafford with Kenny Golladay out.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and is listed as questionable on the team's Week 1 injury report.

Footballguys view: Montgomery should play and lead the backfield in touches, but he's not an advisable play with the risk of re-injury and Lions run defense up this week.

  Bears | David Montgomery playing it safe    Thu Sep 10, 01:38 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) said Thursday, Sept. 10, he's been playing it cautious with his groin injury. 'I didn't do much in practice (Wednesday),' he said. 'I want to be safe.' Montgomery added that when the injury originally happened (Aug. 26), he feared he had 'torn something,' but there didn't turn out to be a tear.

Footballguys view: Montgomery may be able to play in Week 1. His status for the season opener looks better as his practice status was upgraded to full. He could play but the team might limit his snap count. If Montgomery is limited we could see more from Ryan Nall with Tarik Cohen still working as a pass-catching back.

  Bears | David Montgomery causing optimism    Wed Sep 9, 06:50 PM

Updating a previous story, Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) has the team optimistic he'll be able to play in Week 1 despite being a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 9, according to Adam Caplan of Sirius XM NFL Radio.

Footballguys view: Montgomery's groin injury complicates things for the Bears backfield. If Montgomery can't play in the season opener, who is going to get the majority of the carries? Ryan Nall might be an option and we could see WR Cordarrelle Patterson get some carries too.
