Bennett (ribs) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson reports.
Bennett missed Monday's practice after injuring his ribs during Sunday's loss to the Broncos. His Tuesday return suggests he at least has a shot to suit up on Thursday, but given how the Bears have handled injuries this season, a game-time decision seems inevitable. If Bennett can't go, the emerging Zach Miller will likely take on added snaps and targets. Even if Bennett plays, it's possible he'll cede some of his usual workload to Miller.
Carey suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Broncos, ESPN.com reports.
Carey rushed nine times for a team-high 32 yards before leaving with the head injury suffered on a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit by Broncos safety T.J. Ward. Carey was backing up Jeremy Langford on Sunday, as Matt Forte was out with a knee injury, but Forte may be able to return in Week 12 against the Packers, leaving Carey with limited fantasy upside even if he completes the league's concussion protocol quickly.
Defensive end Jarvis Jenkins had a huge game for the Bears in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Seahawks, finishing with a career-high 10 tackles and two sacks.
Jenkins played 56 of 57 total snaps and submitted arguably the best performance of his career. As a 3-4 defensive end, Jenkins hadn't shown much pass-rushing ability in the past, as he only collected two sacks during his previous 44 games with the Redskins. However, he showed plenty of explosiveness from the interior line Sunday, nearly reeling in a third sack on the afternoon before Russell Wilson evaded the rush.
Given his career track record, Jenkins probably can't be counted on to build on this performance, but it at least solidified him into a starting role with Jeremiah Ratliff's pending return from a suspension Week 4.
Safety Sherrod Martin signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Martin, who was cut by the Bears in training camp, re-signed with the team after Antrel Rolle suffered a foot injury in Sunday's win over the Raiders. If Rolle is unavailable for Week 5, Martin or backup Harold Jones-Quartey could see the start at strong safety.
Reynolds will enter the starting lineup Sunday against the Lions, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Shea McClellin is set to miss his first game of the season due to a knee injury, paving the way for Reynolds to pick up his first extended snaps of the season. While his placement at middle linebacker should lend itself to plenty of tackle opportunities, Reynolds will need to make good on that production over multiple games before those in IDP leagues look to him for help.
Wilson (groin) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's injury report, Bears' official site reports.
Wilson recorded the first 100-yard outing of his career Sunday versus the Broncos, accruing 102 yards in all on the backs of four receptions and seven targets. The outing was made possible by absences from Alshon Jeffery (groin) and Eddie Royal (knee), but Jeffery was able to match Wilson's activity level on the first report of the week. With Thursday's divisional outing at Green Bay on tap, two practices remain for the wide-receiver situation to parse itself out, but further DNPs from Jeffery and/or Royal would place additional work on Wilson's shoulders.
Forte (knee) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson reports.
Forte was limited for a second straight day, after logging two limited practices and one absence last week. He is reportedly on track to return for Thursday's game against the Packers, but even if he's able to play, Forte probably won't handle his usual every-down role. Jeremy Langford has proven effective in his absence, showing a particular knack in the passing game, which is also Forte's strength. It's also worth noting that a loss would drop the Bears to 4-7, at which point it would probably make sense for both Forte and the team if Langford stayed involved moving forward. Forte is an impending free agent with little left to prove, and there's a decent chance the Bears will move forward with Langford as the lead back next season. Of course, if the team does manage to stay in the playoff hunt, such considerations can probably be ignored.
Jeffery (groin) was limited at Tuesday's practice, according to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times.
Plagued by leg injuries all season, Jeffery was inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos, leaving Jay Cutler to work with a wideout group comprised of Marquess Wilson, Josh Bellamy, Cameron Meredith and Marc Mariani. With the Bears desperately in need of a win to stay in the playoff hunt, it won't be surprising if Jeffery makes it back just four days later, though he'd likely be playing at less than 100 percent. Even so, he's a must-start player when active, sitting on a 36-515-2 receiving line (57 targets) in five games. Although a 'questionable' designation on Wednesday's injury report seems inevitable, Jeffery should be able to play in Thursday's game if he practices for a third consecutive day.
Rolle (knee) is not expected to play in Thursday's game against the Packers, ESPN.com reports.
Rolle missed Sunday's game against the Broncos after injuring his knee during Saturday's walkthrough. Chris Prosinski figures to start for a second straight week, following a six-tackle, one-sack showing Sunday afternoon. He's a better IDP option than rookie free safety Adrian Amos, who has just 39 tackles this season despite starting every game.
Royal (knee) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's injury report, Bears' official site reports.
Royal boasts a three-game DNP streak and counting, with seemingly no end in sight until he makes an appearance at practice. The Bears hold drills both Tuesday and Wednesday, when he could provide prospective owners that a return is near. However, that's difficult to project at this point.
Bailey (calf) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Bailey will be sidelined once again due to his calf injury, leaving the Chiefs defense without a notable presence up front. However, given the Chargers' patchwork starting offense, Sunday's matchup still seems favorable for Kansas City's defense.
Thomas did not return to Sunday's game after suffering a concussion, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.
Thomas played just one snap Sunday before suffering a concussion, carrying the ball for seven yards on that play. The team hasn't released an update on the severity of the issue, but his progression through the concussion protocol this week should give a good indication of his availability for next Sunday's contest against the Bills.
West is day-to-day with a strained hamstring, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star
West left Sunday's game against the Chargers in the second quarter, finishing with 11 rushes for 16 yards and two receptions for 48 yards. He was replaced by Spencer Ware, who had 96 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries.
Chiefs rookie linebacker Ramik Wilson seemed to make an early impression during rookie minicamp, especially on pass defense. Wilson had an interception during a live session Sunday and came back with two more interceptions Monday, according to the team's official website.
