    07/30/16WRCordarrelle PattersonShoulderPROBABLEPatterson had two receptions for 17 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Seattle. He missed Minnesota's first preseason game with a shoulder injury.

    Patterson got time with the first-team offense and got to passes in the flat where he was able to use his speed to miss tackles. It was an encouraging sign that he could have a few plays a game designed for him on offense. However, his playing time is likely to be minimal on offense this season as he'll likely see almost all his action as a kick returner.

    07/29/16QBTaylor HeinickeFootNFIHeinicke (ankle) has shed the walking boot he wore to protect his foot from further injury, Scout.com reports.

    Heinicke declined to talk about his injury after practice, reportedly saying it was time to go lift weights. If those were indeed his plans, his foot may be further along than anticipated. However, Shaun Hill has done nothing to relinquish his role as the backup to starter Teddy Bridgewater, and the Vikings project to carry only two quarterbacks on their active roster entering the regular season. Ultimately, Heinicke appears destined for either the practice squad or injured reserve list in 2016.

    08/27/16QBConnor ShawLegOUTShaw sustained a broken leg during Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    In the fourth quarter of Saturday's contest, Shaw suffered the fracture just above his ankle. He'll undergo surgery immediately, after which a recovery timetable will be plotted. If no ligament was damaged on the play, there's a chance that he'll be able to return this season. With placement on IR on the horizon, Shaw will yield to Brian Hoyer and David Fales in the pecking order behind starting quarterback Jay Cutler.

    08/18/16RBKa'Deem CareyHeadPROBABLECarey had four carries for nine yards and caught one of his two pass targets for an additional 10 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

    Carey entered the contest to start the second half, playing one series with much of the first-string offense on the field. He did play before Jordan Howard, so it would appear that he's currently the first in line to see early-down work if Jeremy Langford struggles or misses time.

    08/14/16DBKyle FullerKneeQUESTIONABLEFuller (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery this week and he is expected to miss several weeks, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The Bears didn't specify which knee Fuller had scoped this week, but this is concerning news nonetheless for a player that's had a history of knee issues. The ominous "several weeks" timetable puts his status for Week 1 in question, which would leave the Bears down one of their starting corners for the opener against the Texans. If Fuller is unable to play in the opener, De'Vante Bausby or Deiondre' Hall would have to step up at the right corner spot.

    08/04/16LBDanny TrevathanKneePROBABLETrevathan (hamstring) recorded three tackles Saturday against the Chiefs.

    After missing last week's preseason game with a hamstring injury, it was good to see the veteran on the field for the all-important third preseason game. Despite the Bears defense struggling to keep the Chiefs off the field in this contest, he should be an excellent source of tackles this season, making him a quality IDP option.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/01/16TEZach MillerHeadPROBABLEMiller (concussion) will not play in Saturday's third preseason game against the Chiefs, Adam Johns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    No surprise here since Miller has been limited in practice throughout the week after sustaining a concussion early in August. With still another two weeks before Week 1 against the Texans comes around, Miller has plenty of time to fully cover for the season ahead.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/01/16WREddie RoyalHeadPROBABLERoyal (concussion) will not play in Saturday's third preseason game against Kansas City, Adam Johns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Royal has been back at practice for nearly a week, but the Bears won't look to take any chances with their veteran receiver during the preseason. He was spotted partaking in pregame warmups Saturday, so with another two weeks left before the season starts, it seems that Royal will be ready for when it matters most.
