McClellin recorded 81 tackles in his 12 games with the Bears during the season. McClellin ended up finishing second on the team in tackles, but likely would have led the Bears had he not missed three games due to a knee injury and one contest due to a concussion. He was able to return from the head injury in advance of the Week 17 loss to the Lions, but only played 11 snaps, as the Bears elected not to overwork him. Even so, the team's coaching staff seemed very satisfied with McClellin in his first season as a middle linebacker, so he could be back as a starter for the club in 2016.
McClellin (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions, ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson reports. McClellin was only a limited participant in practices this week, but after enduring no further setbacks in his recovery from a concussion, the Bears signed off on his return. Injuries have forced McClellin to miss four games this season, but he's been reasonably effective when he's on the field, producing 81 tackles over 11 games.
McClellin (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. McClellin didn't practice all week due to the head injury after failing to progress quickly enough through the league's concussion protocol. He'll miss his fourth game of the season as a result, paving the way for Christian Jones to rejoin the starting lineup.
McClellin (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Redskins. After being limited in Wednesday's practice session, McClellin logged full practices Thursday and Friday to eliminate any doubt about his status for Week 14. After an inconsistent first three seasons in the NFL, McClellin appears to have found a home as a 3-4 inside linebacker. He ranks second on the team with 66 tackles, despite playing in only nine of 12 games.
McClellin amassed nine tackles in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the 49ers. Since returning Nov. 15 from a three-game absence due to a knee injury, McClellin has put himself on the map for those in deep IDP leagues looking for extra help at linebacker. In his last four games, McClellin has compiled 33 tackles to go along with a forced fumble and a recovery. He's been consistent with his production, too, finishing with between six and 10 stops in all four of those games.
