    Bears' Pernell McPhee: Active Sunday

    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.

    Bears' Pernell McPhee: Active Sunday

    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.

    Bears' Pernell McPhee: Active for Sunday's game

    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.

    Bears' Pernell McPhee: Considered questionable for Sunday

    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. His return would likely provide a sizable boost for the shaky Chicago defense, as McPhee is the best player in the team's front seven when he's healthy.

    Bears' Pernell McPhee: Inactive Sunday

    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.

    Bears' Pernell McPhee: Listed as doubtful

    McPhee (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Even with McPhee's production tailing off the last few weeks, this is still a huge loss for the inconsistent Chicago defense. He's easily the best player in the team's front seven, but the Bears do at least have solid depth at outside linebacker. Lamarr Houston, Willie Young and Sam Acho are all candidates to take on some of McPhee's snaps.

    Bears' Pernell McPhee: Active Sunday

    McPhee (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. After carrying the Bears defense on his back for the first half of the season, McPhee has seen his productivity decline of late, which may be due in part to the lingering knee concern. He only missed one of the Bears' last four games due to the issue, but in the three contests he played, McPhee recorded no sacks and a combined total of nine tackles. Though he was able to fully practice Friday, it's difficult to trust that he's healthy enough to represent an attractive IDP option.

    Bears' Pernell McPhee: Questionable to face Broncos

    McPhee (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos. According to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times, McPhee suggested that he should be able to play, after returning to practice on a limited basis Friday morning. Despite missing Sunday's win over the Rams, McPhee has more than lived up to his sizable contract. If he does miss the game, it'll be good news for every member of the Denver offense.

    Bears' Pernell McPhee: Did not practice Wednesday

    McPhee (knee) did not participate in practice on Wednesday. McPhee has been hampered by a nagging knee injury that he suffered about three weeks ago. He attempted to play through the injury in Week 9, but was limited. He was inactive for last week's win against the Rams after not practicing all week. If McPhee continues to be sidelined this week at practice, look for Willie Young to play in his place.
