Dennard will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Dennard, a first-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, got his first career start in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, filling in for an injured Adam Jones (foot). Dennard has yet to make a strong impression, but he also hasn't had much of an opportunity, as the Bengals have a slew of former first-round draft picks at his position.
Jones (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game in Arizona.
According to ESPN's Coley Harvey, Darqueze Dennard is expected to replace Jones at right cornerback when the Bengals are in their nickel defense. It's likely a significant downgrade, especially with Jones playing at such a high level this season. He didn't practice all week and was listed as doubtful, so he may end up missing time beyond Week 11.
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.
Forte (knee) will return from a three-game absence Thursday at Green Bay, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Forte was limited in two of three practices last week, yet he still logged his third DNP in a row as a result of a sprained MCL in his right knee. He was then listed as limited following Monday's walkthrough, which he replicated in a full session Tuesday, but the Bears didn't need another practice to make the call on Forte. On Thursday, he'll contend with Jeremy Langford for touches, though the veteran may be contained to certain packages in order to avoid a setback in his first game action since Week 7.
Jeffery (groin/shoulder) hopes that he'll be able to play Thursday in Green Bay, the Chicago Tribune reports. "I definitely do want to be out there," he said. "At the same time, if the training staff sees how I feel and I don't feel too well, I won't be out there. If I'm feeling well, I'll play."
When laid out in such a manner, the decision is seemingly a simple one. However, Jeffery has been sidelined for five of the Bears' 10 contests this season due to a variety of ailments, and team trainers clearly would prefer that he avoids an aggravation of either his groin or shoulder. To achieve that end, he's been limited in drills this week, with Wednesday's injury report providing the final word on his Week 12 availability. Another absence would likely place Marquess Wilson in another prominent position in the passing attack.
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.
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.
Wilson (groin) practiced in full Tuesday, the Bears' official site reports.
Estimated as a limited participant in Monday's walkthrough session, Wilson has cleared himself for active status in Week 12 due to his ability to take on a full allotment of reps Tuesday. His eventual workload Thursday at Green Bay will depend on whether Alshon Jeffery (groin) is able to take the field, but the expected return of Matt Forte (knee) may have already sealed Wilson's fate. Nevertheless, Wilson is coming off one of his most productive outings of the season, as he tallied four receptions of more than 20 yards en route to 102 yards overall on seven targets.
