05/23/17WRKevin WhiteLegQUESTIONABLEWhite (leg) did not participate in the Bears' OTA on Tuesday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

White doesn't have any new injuries, but head coach John Fox is not certain whether the 2015 first-rounder will participate at all in OTAs this offseason. He has appeared in just four career games, hauling in 19 passes for 187 yards on 36 targets last season. He'll compete for the No. 1 spot at wide receiver for the Bears upon his return, but Cameron Meredith, Markus Wheaton and Kendall Wright are all solid candidates to vulture targets of their own.

03/07/17LBPernell McPheeShoulder - LabrumQUESTIONABLEMcPhee (shoulder) was on the field for OTAs on Tuesday, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

McPhee is working his way back from surgery on his torn left labrum he underwent at the beginning of the offseason. The linebacker missed seven games last season due to knee and shoulder ailments but his presence on the field Tuesday is clearly a reassuring sign for the Bears defense. They are dealing with plenty of question marks at the position to start OTAs with both Danny Trevathan (knee) and Willie Young (knee) absent from the field.

03/07/17LBWillie YoungKneeQUESTIONABLEYoung (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Although it wasn't confirmed, the assumption is Young's absence is related to his rehab progress. Young is coming off minor knee surgery, and it looks as if the Bears plan to ease him back into action rather than rush him before he's 100 percent healed.

01/25/17DBBrandon BoykinPectoralQUESTIONABLEBoykin (pectoral) was placed on the Injured Reserve list Wednesday.

This news is surprising considering the Bears just signed Boykin last week. They are remarkably the fourth roster he has been on in the last calendar year. His season has now come to an early end. Chicago subsequently signed Joel Ross to take Boykin's place on the roster.

01/25/17QBJay CutlerShoulderQUESTIONABLECutler (shoulder) has been hired by FOX Sports to broadcast NFL games this season, Peter Schrager of FOX Sports reports.

Cutler follows in the path of Tony Romo, eschewing the opportunity to continue his playing career in order to move into the broadcast booth. According to a statement released by Cutler, who parted ways with the Bears in March after requiring surgery to repair a torn labrum, he's in between being physically forced to leave the NFL and losing the desire required to remain successful in the league, thus explaining his decision to pursue a new career. Although the 34-year-old hasn't officially retired, Cutler's departure from the playing field comes after he was selected to one Pro Bowl in 11 seasons -- the last eight of which he spent in Chicago, where he became the Bears' franchise leader in completions, passing yards and touchdown passes.

01/25/17DBKyle FullerKneeQUESTIONABLEFuller's (knee) fifth-year option was declined by the Bears, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Fuller sat out the 2016 season after undergoing knee surgery, but he will now have to battle for a roster spot heading into the 2017 campaign. The 2014 first-round pick started 30 games in his first two years in the league but hasn't appeared to mesh well with the Bears' organization, leading the team to sign several potential replacements at cornerback including Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper.

01/25/17DLEddie GoldmanAnkleQUESTIONABLEGoldman (ankle) recorded 2.5 sacks along with 18 tackles in six games in 2016 before being placed on injured reserve.

Goldman's latest injury cost him the last three games of the season, and he only played six games in what was expected to be a breakout year for the second-year defensive tackle. In 21 career contests, he's compiled seven sacks, and assuming he can put together a healthy off-season, he could be a sneaky IDP draft pick with playmaking ability as an interior lineman.

01/25/17LBLamarr HoustonKnee - ACLQUESTIONABLEHouston has been diagnosed with a torn ACL, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports.

Houston famously tore the ACL in his other knee in 2014 while celebrating a meaningless sack in the closing minutes of a blowout loss. He bounced back with a team-high eight sacks last season, making this yet another major loss for an injury-ravaged Chicago defense. If there's a silver lining, it's that first-round rookie Leonard Floyd could get more snaps in what's starting to look like a rebuilding year.

01/25/17TEZach MillerFootQUESTIONABLEMiller said his foot is "close to 100 percent," Mike Berman of NBC Chicago reports.

Miller added that he'll be taking it slow when the Bears start organized team activities. The 32-year-old tight end suffered a Lisfranc injury that cut short his 2016 season after just 10 games. He was having a productive season before the injury, having posted career highs in targets (64) and catches (47).

01/25/17QBConnor ShawLower LegQUESTIONABLEShaw (leg) was re-signed by the Bears on Saturday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Shaw was likely to reach a deal with Chicago at some point, having entered the offseason as a restricted free agent. After missing the entire 2016 season with a broken leg, Shaw figures to remain buried on the depth chart at quarterback, but there is uncertainty surrounding who will be the top two options when the regular season rolls around.

01/25/17DLWill SuttonAnkleQUESTIONABLESutton (ankle) signed a contract with the Vikings on Wednesday.

After being waived by the Bears a week ago, Sutton didn't take long to find a new home in the NFC North. A former collegiate standout at Arizona State, Sutton struggled to make an impact as a 3-4 defensive end during his three seasons with the Bears, compiling 60 tackles and no sacks in 36 career games (18 starts). Defensive tackle Toby Johnson was waived to create roster room for Sutton, who could have better luck fitting in as a tackle in a 4-3 scheme. He's expected to vie for a reserve role along the line in training camp.

01/25/17LBDanny TrevathanKneeQUESTIONABLEThere is a chance Trevathan (knee) may not be ready for training camp, Brad Briggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Trevathan's first season with the Bears ended when he ruptured the patellar tendon in his right knee during Week 12's loss to the Titans. It was reported in January that the 27-year-old could potentially start the 2017 season on the PUP list due to the severity of the injury. However, the team remains optimistic they will not have to take that measure, but his status for training camp remains up in the air.

01/25/17WRMarquess WilsonFootQUESTIONABLEWilson (foot) is set to become an unrestricted free agent, ChicagoBears.com reports.

A 2013 seventh-round selection, Wilson had multiple chances to serve as either the Bears' second or third receiver, but he never proved worthy of a key role, catching only 56 passes for 777 yards and three touchdowns in 31 games. Coming off an injury-marred season, he'll presumably have to settle for a modest contract, be it with the Bears or another franchise. With Alshon Jeffery also set to hit free agency and Eddie Royal (toe) shaping up as a likely cap casualty, the Chicago receiving corps may be left in the hands of Cameron Meredith and Kevin White (fibula).

01/02/17DBDeon BushAnkleQUESTIONABLEBush (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Vikings, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Bush was a limited participant in Friday's practice session, but ultimately wasn't up to the task for the team's final contest of the season. Harold Jones-Quartey should start at strong safety Sunday, with Demontre Hurst potentially subbing in if needed.

01/02/17DBBryce CallahanHamstringQUESTIONABLECallahan (hamstring) signed his exclusive rights one-year tender with Chicago, Matt Eurich of CBS Sports reports.

Callahan played in only 11 games in 2016 but he recorded 32 tackles and five passes defensed as a depth corner. He'll likely be a backup corner once again in 2017, but he could see an increased role with the defense in what will be his third NFL season.

(Updated 04/19/2017)
01/02/17LBLeonard FloydConcussionQUESTIONABLEFloyd (concussion) finished his rookie season with seven sacks, a forced fumble and 33 tackles in 12 games.

Floyd was on a tear over a five-game stretch that started on October 20, when he notched 6.5 sacks, but otherwise, he only picked up a half a sack over his other seven games. He'll be in the second of a five-year contract in 2017 as a player who's expected to be a cornerstone of the defense, as this year's inconsistency can likely be attributed to rookie growing pains. He should be considered as an upside option in IDP drafts next season.
