Position Listing
Michael Ola
News
The Bears ruled the following players inactive for Monday's game against the Saints: kicker Robbie Gould (quad), safety Chris Conte (back), cornerback Terrance Mitchell, offensive lineman Michael Ola (back), quarterback David Fales, defensive end Trevor Scott and defensive tackle Brandon Dunn.
Jared Allen
News
Bears defensive end Jared Allen is learning a new position at age 33.

With the Bears switching to a 3-4 defense, Allen will spend much of his time at outside linebacker. 

"He did well in the minicamp we had here, and I think he was excited about it," defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said, per ESPN. "Like I told him, I think he can have a rebirth to his career here playing a little bit of a new position. But in the NFL today, you play more nickel than you actually play base. For some teams they play nickel 65 to 75 percent of the time. He’ll be playing his normal position then. So it’s not as drastic of a change as you might think."

Al Louis-Jean
News
The Bears announced cornerback Al Louis-Jean has been signed to a two-year contract extension.

Louis-Jean was an undrafted rookie in 2014 and played in nine games and recorded 11 tackles.

Montell Owens
News
The Bears have signed veteran fullback Montell Owens to take the place of shelved LB D.J. Williams on the roster.

Olsen Pierre
No Updates
Jon Bostic
News
The Bears have listed LB Lance Briggs, LB Jon Bostic, OL Jordan Mills, S Danny McCray, CB Terrance Mitchell, DB Ahmad Dixon and OL Charles Leno, Jr. as inactive Week 8 against the Patriots. 

The Bears will be without a couple notable defensive players. Both Briggs and Bostic will need more time to recover, leaving the team thin at linebacker. Jordan Mills will also miss the contest, hurting the offensive line. 

Vladimir Ducasse
News
The Bears have signed guard Vladimir Ducasse, according to the team. It is a one-year deal for Ducasse who spent last year with the Vikings.

The 27-year-old is entering his sixth season in the NFL. He started six games last year for the Vikings.

Kyle Long
News
Bears safety Chris Conte will miss Sunday's game against the Vikings with a back injury. Conte was unable to practice all week. He played 12 games this season, recording 43 tackles and three interceptions. Also out are quarterback Jimmy Clausen (concussion) and kicker Robbie Gould (quad).

Defensive end Jared Allen (ribs), defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff, and cornerback Al Lewis-Jean (hamstring) are all listed a questionable for Sunday.

David Bass (knee), Ego Ferguson (ankle), Kyle Long (hip) and Marquess Wilson (knee) are all listed as probable.

The Bears are 6-point underdogs for Sunday's game.

Matt Forte
News
Bears running back Matt Forte has been a workhorse for Chicago for years. But with new coach John Fox taking over the reins, Forte could see some restrictions in an attempt to keep him fresh throughout the season, according to ESPN.com. Offensive coordinator Adam Gase typically utilizes multiple running backs in his offense.

"Well this is an unusual situation just because Matt has been in such great shape and has been so dynamic as far as staying on the field," Gase said at rookie minicamp. "We've just got to see how it plays out. In Denver, C.J. would hate me for saying this, but he got tired and was a little chubby sometimes. I mean, he got worn down quick and then we had to rotate backs in last year. Matt's an unusual situation in that position because he's able to play every play, or has."

Fox also likes to keep the approach of keeping players fresh.

"It's a positive that he's had a number of carries and the production he's had, both catching the ball and running the ball," Fox said. "We've always been believers in kind of a one-two punch and rolling guys through there whether it's the defensive line; a wave of those guys to stay fresh. I've always had the approach the same thing with running backs. But as I tell guys they pick the team -- how they perform -- and it will be no different at running back, who that guy is and how dependable he is and if he earns that number of reps to get in. We're early in the process and hopefully somebody kind of sets themselves out."

Forte had 266 carries for 1,038 yards and six touchdowns with 102 receptions for 808 yards and four touchdowns in 2014.

Willie Young
News
The Bears have placed defensive end Willie Young on season-ending injured reserve and re-signed Austen Lane. Young suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's game against the Lions.

Young finishes the year with the most sacks he's totaled in a season, 10, and 40 tackles in 15 games played.

Hurst recorded 35 tackles and one interception in 2014. 

“It’s a blessing to be where I started and get to be with a different set of coaches but still with the same teammates," Hurst said. "I’m just happy to be back with the guys. They pretty much helped me throughout the season last year to keep growing with them.”

Marquess Wilson
News
With the Bears having traded Brandon Marshall to the Jets, third-year pro Marquess Wilson is the "logical choice" to replace him as a starting outside receiver, reports ESPN.com. But the 6-4, 184-pounder will need to make major progress this offseason for Chicago to feel comfortable starting him opposite Alshon Jeffery, the report said.

"He’ll need to add some bulk in the team’s conditioning program as he’s not considered a speedster capable of blowing past corners at the line of scrimmage," the website said. Wilson suffered a fractured clavicle in training camp last year, then returned to catch 17 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown in seven games.

The Bears, who added slot receiver Eddie Royal via free agency, figure to draft at least one wideout. Chicago owns the No. 7 pick overall.

Will Montgomery
News
The Bears announced Thursday they released longtime center Roberto Garza. The team also announced they signed center Will Montgomery to a one-year contract.

Garza, who was a fourth-round pick of the Falcons in 2001, has been with the Bears since 2005. He has appeared in 206 games in his 14-year career and has started 176 times. He has only missed six starts the last nine seasons, including four in 2014 due to an ankle injury.

The Bears will be Montgomery's fifth team since being selected in the seventh round in 2006 by the Panthers. He has also played for the Jets, Redskins and Broncos, where he played in 2014 under new Bears coach John Fox. Montgomery has appeared in 106 games (71 starts).

News

White wouldn't divulge the name of the restaurant. "Some fancy nice dinner, I guess," he said.

Alshon Jeffery
News
Bears coach John Fox is changing the team's offseason conditioning program, and he thinks the tweaks will help wideout Alshon Jeffery, reports ESPN.com. Jeffery is the Bears' No. 1 receiver now that Brandon Marshall has been traded to the Jets.

The 25-year-old dealt with nagging hamstring problems last year.

“I really liked Alshon coming out [of college],” Fox said at the NFL owners' meetings. “One of the things I’d say is we had a lot of soft-tissue injuries last year as a football team. We’ve kind of changed philosophically in the weight room. I think you’ll see we’re going to do things a lot different from offseason conditioning, the approach to how we handle that. I don’t think we had a soft-tissue injury a year ago in Denver other than one particular guy.”

Jeffery caught 85 passes for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns last year, his second straight 1,000-yard season.

“I think [the new conditioning approach] will help him,” Fox said. “There have been times in his career when he might have been a little bit overweight, but obviously a beast as far as size, and a guy we’re looking forward to getting to know better.”

Pat Devlin
News
The Vikings announced Thursday they waived quarterback Pat Devlin. They also announced the signings of quarterback Mike Kafka and defensive end Caesar Rayford.
Tim Jennings
News
Bears cornerback Tim Jennings is "still trying to figure out" where he will fit into the secondary this season, the Chicago Tribune is reporting.

The nine-year veteran, who is entering his sixth season in the Windy City, has 95 career starts and led the league in interceptions in 2012. He is even a two-time Pro Bowler. But he spent significant time as the slot corner in minicamp. That's an unsatisfying role for him that he just might be forced to embrace.

Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio prefers his outside corners tall and physical. Jennings is 5-8, 185 pounds. He might still earn an outside role opposite Kyle Fuller, but do achieve that goal he must at the very least outperform free agent pickup Alan Ball, who better fits the ideal description.

If the words of new coach John Fox are any indication, that's unlikely to happen.

"Dimension-wise, he's built like a nickel corner," Fox said. "He's played it before."

Jennings has started all but three games over the last seven years.

Kyle Fuller

The Bears have given the thumbs-up to both probables for the Sunday game against Detroit. Cornerback Kyle Fuller (hand) and linebacker Shea McClellin (ankle) are ready to roll.

Adrian Amos
News
What was reported is now official - the Bears have announced that they have signed three of their 2015 draft picks to four-year contracts.

Included is fourth-rounder Jeremy Langford, a running back who rushed for 1,522 yards and 22 touchdowns for Michigan State last season. Safety and fifth-rounder Adrian Amos, as well as 353-pound offensive tackle and sixth-rounder Tayo Fabuluje are also in the fold.

Antrel Rolle
News
The Giants made safety Landon Collins their pick in the second round of the draft, trading up to get him. That likely means that the Alabama product will get the chance to replace Antrel Rolle, who signed with Chicago as a free agent. 

Collins thinks he's up to the challenge. 

"Starting at Dutchtown [high school], I came in right after Eric Reid," Collins said, per NJ.com. "Then going to Alabama I came in after Mark Barron, Ha Ha Clinton Dix, and Vinnie Sunseri, plenty of big shoes to fill. Stepping into Antrel Rolle's shoes, I'm gonna definitely fill those too and keep it on going."

New Bears coach John Fox called it "all an open competition" when asked if he could see a scenario in which quarterback Jay Cutler had to compete for the starting job, reports ESPN.com. Jimmy Clausen is Cutler's projected backup.

“I would say logically if you are looking at the depth chart and you are asking me for it two weeks before we can really get anything going, I’d say  be [Cutler would be] first on the depth chart, yeah,” Fox said.

“Obviously you’ve got to start somewhere and my experience in football and really anything is it’s not where you start the race it’s where you finish it. We have to start the race with some kind of lineup, and we have not discussed that in depth. We have not presented it to our players in depth. I think it’s important for them to see it maybe more than you guys. I’ve had guys who were third on the depth chart that by the time we started the opener were first. I can’t tell you what’s happening. If I could I’d be at some race track somewhere.”

Shea McClellin might move twice over the next year. The Bears have already stated they will decline his fifth-year option, which means McClellin could wind up elsewhere in 2016. But before that, he will be moving on the field.

McClellin has also played defensive end and has yet to find a permanent home. The 19th overall selection in the 2012 draft did set a career-high last with 84 tackles and 4.5 tackles for losses.
