Carey was a healthy scratch for the final two games of the season, and ended the campaign with 32 carries for 126 yards while catching five passes for 55 yards Carey rushed for 3.9 yards per carry on the year, and once Jordan Howard emerged as a rising star, Carey touched the football just 11 times over his last seven games before being deactivated for the final two games of the season. During Weeks 16 and 17, Jeremy Langford saw 21 touches in the two games, though he rushed for just 2.7 yards per carry during that time. Carey's under contract next year, and he'll likely be given a chance to compete for a backup role behind Howard, but based on his 2016 performance, he'll need to significantly improve over the off-season to be considered as a fantasy factor.
Carey is inactive for Sunday's contest at Minnesota, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. For the second week in a row, Carey has been included among the Bears' inactives. On this occasion, though, he avoided the injury report all week, so the backfield is seemingly safe in the hands of Jordan Howard and Jeremy Langford in the season finale.
Carey (shoulder) does not appear on the Bears' injury report Wednesday. Carey missed last week's tilt versus the Redskins with a shoulder issue. Not even on the injury report to start Week 17 prep, Carey should be fine to play in the Bears' season finale Sunday versus the Vikings.
Carey (shoulder) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Redskins. Although Carey was able to practice in a limited capacity throughout the week, he will not be in uniform for Saturday's contest due to his shoulder injury. Jordan Howard, who is becoming a bellcow for the Bears, figures to see the vast majority of the carries Saturday and Jeremy Langford could see an uptick in snaps as well.
Carey (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Redskins, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports. Carey was limited all week due to a shoulder problem, leaving his status up in the air for Saturday's contest. However, with no more than two carries in any game since late October, fantasy owners shouldn't be factoring Carey into their plans for the weekend anyway.
