Bears' Kyle Fuller: Undergoes knee surgery, will miss "several weeks"
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fuller (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.

Bears' Kyle Fuller: In battle to retain starting spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fuller (knee) has had struggles adjusting to playing man-to-man defense, and he's battling to keep his starting job, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Fuller was drafted with the 14th overall pick in the 2014 draft by former general Jerry Angelo with the expectation that he'd primarily play in a zone defense. However, since Vic Fangio took over the defense, the cornerbacks are expected to play man-to-man, which has been a struggle for the third-year veteran. His struggles led to him being benched late in the game during a September loss last year, and Fuller said that he needs to have more confidence, which he feels will lead to increased production. With the current coaching staff having drafted four cornerbacks since taking over in 2015, they have no allegiance to Fuller, so he'll need to earn his spot this preseason.

Bears' Kyle Fuller: Dealing with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fuller will not travel with the team for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Patriots due to knee soreness, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

It's unclear when Fuller suffered the injury specifically, but he's experiencing some soreness in his knee and will take a few days off to get back to 100 percent. The Bears are likely just being cautious with their current projected starter at cornerback, so Fuller shouldn't see a lengthy absence.

Bears' Kyle Fuller: Limited Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fuller was limited in Monday's practice due to an ankle injury.

Fuller being limited Monday is an exercise in caution from the Bears, who would hardly risk their No. 1 cornerback at this early stage. Although the extent of Fuller's discomfort is unknown, expect him to allow his ankle to heal before returning to full participation in practice.

Bears' Kyle Fuller: Has two interceptions, 55 tackles on season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kyle Fuller recorded 55 tackles and two interceptions over 16 games during the 2015 season.

After an up-and-down rookie season, Fuller regressed a little bit as a sophomore, finishing with nine fewer tackles and two fewer interceptions. The Chicago Bears spent a first-round draft pick on Fuller in 2014 with the belief that he'd be a strong successor to Charles Tillman, but Fuller will need to demonstrate some progress in 2016 if he hopes to cement himself as a part of the team's long-term outlook.
