Josh Bellamy got the start Sunday against the Broncos and finished with four catches on five targets for 57 yards.
With Alshon Jeffery (groin) and Eddie Royal (knee) both sidelined, Bellamy saw a big increase in snaps and looks, as he had been targeted just once in the previous four games combined. Jeffery was questionable heading into the game and if he's able to return in Week 12 against the Packers, Bellamy will likely go back to his minimal role.
Josh Bellamy is starting Sunday against the Broncos.
Marquess Wilson moves to the top of the depth chart in place of Alshon Jeffery, who is out with groin injury, while Bellamy starts on the other side in place of the injured Eddie Royal (knee). The fantasy upside is a bit limited, however, as the Broncos come in allowing the fewest receiving yards per game in the NFL this season.
Josh Bellamy is active for Sunday's game against the Lions, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Though the groin injury limited him throughout the week of practice, Bellamy won't be forced out of action. Even so, it appears Bellamy offensive snap count is set to decline this week, as the Chicago Bears ' receiving corps is now back to full strength with Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (ankle) available. As a result, Bellamy now rates as the No. 4 option on the Bears' depth chart at receiver, leaving most of his duties to come on special teams.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Josh Bellamy (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday in Detroit.
Bellamy played most of the offensive snaps in a Week 5 win over the Chiefs, catching six of eight targets for just 31 yards. If he plays, he might have a significant role for a second straight week, as Chicago's receiving corps is still a mess with three top players also questionable.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Josh Bellamy (groin) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The Chicago Bears listed Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (ankle) among their inactives Sunday at Kansas Jayhawks City, leaving plenty of volume to be consumed. Bellamy filled some of the void, matching Marquess Wilson 's eight targets and sitting behind only Martellus Bennett 's 11. While Royal missed practice again Wednesday, Jeffery was limited, but there's no indication that a return is near for either receiver. If the WR corps is similar Sunday in Detroit, Bellamy would likely have additional opportunity to be a factor in the box score.
