    11/26/15TEMartellus BennettRIBSOUTBennett (ribs) was ruled out for Thursday's game at Green Bay.

    Bennett turned in limited practices both Tuesday and Wednesday, likely in order to test out his injured ribs, but the Bears will opt for caution and rest the tight end on a short week. In his stead, Zach Miller should have an ample workload, which could expand further if Alshon Jeffery (groin/shoulder) and Matt Forte (knee) are eventually ruled out.

    (Updated 11/25/2015)
    11/26/15RBKa'Deem CareyHEADOUTCarey 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.

    (Updated 11/22/2015)
    11/26/15RBMatt ForteKNEEQUESTIONABLEForte (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game in Green Bay.

    Forte is expected to be a part of the Bears' offense Thursday for the first time since Week 8, but head coach John Fox hasn't indicated how he'll be used. With Jeremy Langford faring well in his absence, Forte may have a situational role versus anything sustainable, making him a difficult fantasy option to trust in his return.

    (Updated 11/25/2015)
    11/26/15WRAlshon JefferyGROINQUESTIONABLEJeffery (groin/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday's contest at Green Bay.

    On Tuesday, Jeffery indicated his hope that he'll return from a one-game absence, but the Bears didn't tip their hand this week, as he turned in limited practices each day. Expect the team's training staff to test out his injuries in a pregame workout, at which point a decision will come down with the release of their inactive list.

    (Updated 11/25/2015)
    11/26/15SSherrod MartinNECKQUESTIONABLESafety 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.

    (Updated 10/07/2015)
    11/26/15LBPernell McPheeKNEEQUESTIONABLEMcPhee (knee) is active Sunday against the Broncos.

    McPhee (knee), who did not play in Week 10, returned to practice on a limited basis Friday, which was apparently enough to get him back on the field. He has three sacks in his last four games.

    (Updated 11/22/2015)
    11/26/15LBLaRoy ReynoldsKNEEQUESTIONABLEReynolds 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.

    (Updated 10/18/2015)
    11/26/15SAntrel RolleKNEEQUESTIONABLERolle (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.

    (Updated 11/24/2015)
    11/26/15WREddie RoyalKNEEOUTRoyal (knee) was ruled out for Thursday's contest at Green Bay.

    Royal will miss his fourth consecutive game due to a knee injury, which he suffered in Week 8. With Martellus Bennett (rib) also sidelined, and Alshon Jeffery (groin/shoulder) and Matt Forte (knee) questionable Thursday, the Bears may again trot out Marquess Wilson (groin) as the No. 1 wide receiver.

    11/26/15LBAnthony BarrHandPROBABLEBarr (hand) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    With a varied line in his second campaign -- 47 tackles (39 solo), 1.5 sacks, one interception, and one forced fumbled in nine contests -- Barr will line up at strong-side linebacker in an attempt to corral Aaron Rodgers and company.

    (Updated 11/22/2015)
    11/26/15SRobert BlantonAnkleQUESTIONABLEVikings safety Robert Blanton is likely to start at strong safety this week against Denver with Andrew Sendejo out with a knee injury, ESPN reports.

    Blanton had lost out on the starting job and had a limited role off the bench as he didn't even play a snap on defense in Week 2. He should get a full workload Sunday with Sendejo out.

    (Updated 10/02/2015)
    11/26/15QBTeddy BridgewaterLeft shoulderPROBABLEBridgewater completed 25 of 37 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Packers. He was sacked six times, and finished with 43 rushing yards on four carries.

    Bridgewater took a number of big hits, and had to leave the game briefly in the first half. While he showed toughness throughout, he couldn't make enough plays in the end. His fantasy production continues to be limited, with just one 300-yard passing game, and one touchdown or less in nine of 10 contests this season. The second-year QB has added some fantasy value as a runner, with a couple of touchdowns on the ground. Next week, he and the Vikings will travel to Atlanta to play the Falcons, who have generally held opposing QBs in check this year.

    (Updated 11/22/2015)
    11/26/15DTSharrif FloydAnkleQUESTIONABLEFloyd (ankle) is listed as active Sunday in Oakland, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports.

    Floyd missed three games following surgery to remove cartilage from his knee, but after building up his practice reps during the week, the defensive tackle will make his first appearance since Week 6.

    (Updated 11/15/2015)
    11/26/15DEEverson GriffenHip, shoulderQUESTIONABLEGriffen (neck) is active Sunday against the Rams.

    After putting in limited practices earlier in the week, Griffen put in a full practice on Friday and will be in the lineup at right defensive end. His presence will help the Vikings defensive line as they try to slow down Todd Gurley and the Rams offense.

    (Updated 11/08/2015)
    11/26/15LBEric KendricksRibsPROBABLEKendricks had seven total tackles and a tackle for a loss while playing 68 snaps in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

    Kendricks missed two games with injured ribs, but was back as the starter at middle linebacker and played a full game.

    (Updated 11/23/2015)
    11/26/15SHarrison SmithKneeQUESTIONABLEHarrison Smith started at free safety for the Vikings and had nine total tackles in Monday's loss at San Francisco.
