    06/15/16WRMarquess WilsonFoot Wilson, who re-fractured his left foot Tuesday, is out indefinitely.

    Per the report, Wilson -- who missed the last five games of the 2015 season after breaking the same foot -- will undergo surgery this coming Monday and is thus a candidate to open the season on the PUP list. With Wilson ailing, look for Eddie Royal, Josh Bellamy and Marc Mariani, as well as Cameron Meredith, Daniel Braverman and Deonte Thompson to jostle for slotting on the Bears' wideout depth chart behind top options Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White.

    04/08/16DBOmar BoldenKnee The Bears and Bolden agreed to a contract Thursday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The defections from head coach John Fox's previous employer, the Broncos, continue, as Bolden is the fourth such player to move from Denver to Chicago this offseason. In four seasons in the Mile-High City, Bolden served primarily on special teams, racking up 27 tackles in that domain while returning at least 13 kickoffs on three occasions. Expect him to serve in a similar capacity with the Bears.

    04/08/16LBPernell McPheeKnee McPhee (knee) will miss this week's minicamp, and head coach John Fox was noncommittal as to whether McPhee will be ready for training camp in July, reports Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune.

    McPhee had arthroscopic surgery on his knee shortly after the 2015 season, and was not expected to be at full speed until training camp, so this isn't shocking news. However, having the outside linebacker at full strength for the regular season will be vital to the Bears' pass rush, as McPhee recorded five sacks in the first seven games of 2015 before being slowed down by the knee injury.

    05/18/16RBLe'Veon BellKneeQUESTIONABLEBell (knee) said Tuesday he will be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Bell is already doing individual work, including running and cutting, at the first round of OTAs. Although the Steelers will likely take things slow, Bell is nearly seven months removed from tearing his MCL, which should give him more than enough to get ready for camp. Despite suffering season-ending injuries the past two years, he has a strong argument to the first running back drafted, offering an unparalleled combination of running ability, receiving skills and team context.

    04/08/16TELadarius GreenAnkle Green, who underwent ankle surgery following the 2015 season, expects to be ready in advance of training camp, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Green dealt with some ankle issues last season, but the situation was addressed by the procedure. The Steelers put the tight end through a physical before inking him to a four-year, $20 million deal, so evidently there's no real injury concerns on their part. In any case, Green fills a big need for the Steelers at the tight end position following the retirement of Heath Miller, who caught 60 passes for the team in 2015. While Miller -- a long-time fixture in the Pittsburgh offense -- isn't an easy act to follow, Green is viewed as a player with untapped potential, after having worked behind Antonio Gates in San Diego over the past four seasons.

    03/14/16WRMartavis BryantSuspensionSUSPENDBryant was never under consideration of being cut by the Steelers despite his recently imposed year-long suspension, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Bryant's multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy triggered a minimum one-year suspension from the league, but the Steelers never considered releasing him, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Instead, Pittsburgh will hope Bryant makes the necessary changes to his life to get reinstated next year, when he would have two years remaining on his contract with the team. With Bryant suspended, Steelers receivers Markus Wheaton and, more specifically, Sammie Coates, will be looked upon to take advantage of their increased opportunities this season.

    02/19/16DBMike MitchellShoulder Mitchell confirmed Friday that he's had surgery on his left shoulder and left hand this offseason, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Mitchell has been afflicted by injury throughout his two seasons with the Steelers, but no DNPs dot his game log during that stretch. In 2015, he racked up a career-high 80 tackles (58 solo), while contributing three interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. It's unclear if he'll be ready for the start of the offseason program in April, but his availability for the 2016 season doesn't appear to be in peril.
