McPhee is recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
After missing just four games over four seasons to start his career with the Ravens, McPhee has played just 23 of 32 games in his two seasons while battling through injuries with the Bears. Not much had been reported about him having a torn labrum before this news broke, but he was ruled out the 2016 season finale with a shoulder injury, so it seems possible that was when the injury occurred. If the 28-year-old can recover before training camp, he'll be counted on to have a significant role, especially in terms of rushing the passer, and his upside makes him a player who could be a sneaky IDP option in deeper leagues.
McPhee (shoulder) did not travel with the team for Sunday's game against Minnesota and he has been ruled out, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN reports.
Sunday will mark McPhee's seventh missed contest of the season due to injury. He battled a knee injury early in the season but had been able to play in every game after being activated off the PUP list after Week 6. With Leonard Floyd (concussion) doubtful for Sunday's tilt, the Bears will be short on pass rushing options against the Vikings.
McPhee (shoulder) is questionable to play Sunday in Minnesota.
While it isn't clear whether McPhee suffered an injury last week versus the Redskins or not, he wasn't able to practice all week and doesn't appear likely to suit up. If he's ultimately ruled out, McPhee will end the 2016 campaign with 16 tackles and four sacks across nine games in his second season in Chicago.
McPhee notched a pair of sacks along with three tackles in Sunday's defeat to the Packers.
After registering sacks in two of the first three games he played the season, this was the first time McPhee was able to sack the quarterback in the five games since. He'll be a low-floor IDP option in Week 16 against Washington.
