McPhee (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions, ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson reports. The Bears have been listed McPhee as questionable to play in advance of the last three games, but once again, he'll be available to suit up. However, the Bears continue to limit McPhee's snaps to reduce the strain on his knee, so he doesn't make for an attractive IDP target for the Week 17 slate.
McPhee (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports. McPhee has received limited snaps while playing in four of the Bears' last five games, and that will likely be the case again Sunday. Because of his decreased workload, McPhee isn't a high-quality IDP option for Week 16.
McPhee (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings, ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson reports. Listed as questionable heading into the week after missing the Bears' previous game, McPhee was able to participate in a limited fashion in each of the team's three practices. That was enough for coach John Fox to sign off on the linebacker's return, but there remains a possibility that McPhee could see a lower-than-normal snap count if he's not yet 100 percent healthy. The Bears have received good production from Willie Young and Lamarr Houston in recent games, and both figure to remain prominent figures in the rotation at the position even with McPhee now available again.
McPhee (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports. McPhee returned to limited practices this week, perhaps giving him a chance to return after missing just one game.

McPhee (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins. The Bears will start Willie Young at one of the outside linebacker spots in McPhee's place, according to ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson. After an excellent first half of the season in which he recorded five sacks, McPhee's productivity has really tailed off over the last several games, due in large part to the ongoing knee problems that have frequently limited him in practice. The pain in McPhee's knee was too much for him to even get on the field in any capacity during practices this week.
