Receivers Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Joe Anderson (knee), and offensive tackles Jermon Bushrod (calf) and Eben Britton (foot) are probable.

The Bears ruled out safety Anthony Walters with a hamstring injury.

The Bears promoted center Taylor Boggs and wide receivers Josh Bellamy and Chris Williams from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The team waived three players earlier in the day as a precursor to the promotions. The Bears are dealing with injuries to three receivers and two interior linemen, precipitating the need for depth at the positions.

Lamarr Houston
News
The Bears revamped a terrible defensive line this offseason and brought in several defenders that should work wonders against the run. The new-look line will face a rush-centric test in Week 1 when the Bills come to town.

The Bills were a solid matchup for Fantasy DSTs last season, giving up the 12th-most average points in Fantasy. However, it may be difficult finding turnovers and sacks against them in Week 1, as the offense will likely commit to running the ball with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson.

Luckily for the Bears, their rebuilt line now features the best two 4-3 defensive ends against the run last season in Lamarr Houston and Willie Young, per Pro Football Focus. If those guys can play at that same level in Week 1, it should force the Bills into third-and-long situations regularly, allowing Jared Allen to pin his ears back and get after E.J. Manuel, a guy with the second-highest sack percentage among starting quarterbacks when under pressure, per Football Focus.

While the Bears DST aren't a lock for a big Fantasy week, they represent a quietly-nice option in Week 1. Both CBSSports.com Fantasy experts rank them in the top 10 this week, but they're only owned in roughly three out of every four leagues.

Santonio Holmes

Jay Cutler
News
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler looked like a terrible starting option in Week 2 at San Francisco. He was down two offensive linemen, and Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery were questionable to play against a 49ers defense coming off a three-interception outing at Dallas in Week 1.

Well, Marshall and Jeffery were active, and Cutler shredded the 49ers for four touchdowns. He now has six touchdowns in two games and should stay hot against the Jets, who have allowed five passing touchdowns in two games against Derek Carr and Aaron Rodgers.

We like Cutler as a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback in Week 3. For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Kyle Fuller
News
Bears rookie corner Kyle Fuller intercepted two fourth-quarter passes in the Week 2 win at San Francisco. He's an every-down player now that corner Charles Tillman (triceps) is done for the season.

"I think we all saw what Kyle did with his opportunity," defensive end Jared Allen told ESPN.com, referring to Tillman leaving the game with the injury. "We are going to expect him to play at that level going forward, obviously. But you can really say that his first test was a great one. He passed it."

Fuller, the nickel corner before Tillman's injury, tied for the team lead with seven tackles, including five solo stops.

Taylor Boggs
News
The Bears promoted center Taylor Boggs and wide receivers Josh Bellamy and Chris Williams from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Chris Conte (shoulder) and Craig Steltz (groin) remain on the PUP list. If Conte comes back healthy, he'll be a favorite to start at free safety, the website said.

Martellus Bennett
News
Martellus Bennett is off to a stellar start through his first two games with 15 catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns on 18 targets.

He is second on the team in targets to Marshall (20) and the Bears have done a nice job featuring Bennett in the early part of the year. We hope it continues this week against a suspect Jets secondary.

The Jets haven't faced a tight end of note yet with matchups against the Raiders and Packers, but last year New York allowed seven touchdowns to opposing tight ends. There were nine tight ends against the Jets last year that had at least six targets and eight of them finished with at least eight Fantasy points in a standard league.

Bennett has at least six targets in five of his past six games going back to last season.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Jimmy Clausen
News
Bears quarterback Jimmy Clausen has won the No. 2 role under center after the team parted ways with Jordan Palmer Sunday.

"They both competed really hard for the job," head coach Marc Trestman told ESPN.com. "As I told Jordan, Jimmy played at a consistent level, as did Jordan. I really threw out the five or six plays Jordan had the other night backed up. I know Jordan was terribly upset about that situation. That really didn't come into the consideration. Jimmy's played a lot more football in this league. He's younger, and I thought the competition was very close. But I thought at the end of the day, I think the upside for Jimmy, his age, his experience, and he came highly recommended from some people I trust in Carolina."

Clausen has completed 64.9 percent of his passes this preseason for 280 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Pat O'Donnell
News
