The Bears are 6-point underdogs for Sunday's game.
After being held without a catch last week for the first time since 2011, Forte replenished his stat column Sunday, nabbing all four passes that came his way. Forte, as he has been for several seasons, is a darling in PPR leagues and can rack up yardage, but owners have to be concerned about the fact that he's scored just once through four games after finding the end zone 22 times in 2013 and 2014.
Though he faced the stiff challenge of transitioning from a 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker, while also working his way back from a torn Achilles' tendon, Young managed to earn a roster spot out of training camp. However, he still appears to be a clunky fit in the Bears' scheme, which has been reflected in his low snap counts in Weeks 1 and 2, in addition to the healthy scratch in Week 3.
After Jared Allen was dealt to the Panthers on Monday, Young could have an opportunity to draw back into the active ranks for Sunday's game against the Raiders. However, he still appears to be behind Pernell McPhee, Lamarr Houston and Sam Acho in the pecking order at outside linebacker.
"We’re not going to make a decision real early,” coach Jeff Fisher said, per StLToday.com. “We’ll let them all play. We’re rotating them. They’re all getting opportunities to work with (QBNick Foles), so he’s familiar, not only with the exchanges, but also the communication. We’ll make that decision when somebody shows us he’s earned the job."
Already facing the possibility of playing without QB Jay Cutler and WR Alshon Jeffery -- both questionable with hamstring injuries -- for a second straight week, the Bears will now be missing their starting left tackle. That's never a good thing, but it's especially worrisome when Khalil Mack is on the other team. Mack normally moves all over the place, but Oakland may have him spend more time on the offense's left side to test out replacement LT Charles Leno.
Jenkins played 56 of 57 total snaps and submitted arguably the best performance of his career. As a 3-4 defensive end, Jenkins hadn't shown much pass-rushing ability in the past, as he only collected two sacks during his previous 44 games with the Redskins. However, he showed plenty of explosiveness from the interior line Sunday, nearly reeling in a third sack on the afternoon before Russell Wilson evaded the rush.
Given his career track record, Jenkins probably can't be counted on to build on this performance, but it at least solidified him into a starting role with Jeremiah Ratliff's pending return from a suspension Week 4.
With both Royal and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) looking no better than 50-50 to play, the Chicago wideout group might be led by Marquess Wilson and Josh Bellamy. Someone obviously has to get targets, but the Bears may just funnel even more touches in the direction of Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte. It will be surprising if decisions on Royal and Jeffery are announced before Sunday morning.
Nix played in 15 games with the Raiders, but has not appeared in one since 2013, when he made 10 starts.
Slauson tore a pectoral muscle a few weeks ago and was ruled out for the season in late October. The move opened up a roster spot for Annen, who may be active Sunday if Martellus Bennett (rib, questionable) is unable to go.
Houston has 17 sacks in his five-year career.
With Porter again unable to play, Sherrick McManis will serve as the nickelback, behind starting corners Kyle Fuller and Alan Ball. If McManis plays well, Porter may be bumped down to the fourth or fifth spot on the depth chart upon rejoining the team.
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.”
Wilson came out of hibernation on Sunday, collecting as many targets and double the receptions he totaled in the first three weeks of the season. Of Wilson's nine receptions this season, two have gone for 35 yards or more and he also drew a 22-yard pass interference on Sunday. Though he is likely going to lose targets once Alshon Jeffery returns, Wilson is showing Chicago's new coaching staff that he is an intriguing downfield target.
The Bears are 6-point underdogs for Sunday's game.
Gould came through in the clutch for the Bears, nailing a 49-yard field goal with two seconds remaining in the game to give his team their first win of the season. Prior to those heroics, Gould missed his first kick of the season when his first-quarter extra-point attempt was blocked.
He's 5 for 6 on PATs and 9 for 9 from the field, including three makes from 50-plus yards.
They'll play the Lions in Week 16.
Sutton was expected to slide back to a bench role with Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle) returning from a three-game suspension, but both players are listed as questionable for Sunday, after logging limited practices throughout the week. If both suit up, Ratliff will probably get the start and play more snaps. Neither warrants IDP consideration.
Ratliff can participate in the preseason, but he will not be allowed to return to the team until Monday, Sept. 28. He pleaded guilty in April to a DWI charge from 2013, where he crashed his car into an 18-wheeler and his blood-alcohol limit was more than twice the legal limit.
Ratliff had 6.5 sacks with the Bears last season, his first after four Pro Bowl-seasons with the Cowboys.
Montgomery, who signed a one-year contract with the Bears this offseason due in large part with his familiarity with coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase from his days in Denver, started the first four games at center for the Bears.
Reynolds hadn't seen any snaps on defense through two weeks as had found himself firmly planted behind Dan Skuta and Telvin Smith on the depth chart. He could be a depth addition for a linebacker-needy team.
Cutler was listed as a limited participant all week, but he looked fine in a Week 4 win over the Raiders, and there haven't been any reports that he aggravated his hamstring.
His downgraded practice participation doesn't ensure his absence, as the team also held out a bunch of other players who practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday and Thursday. However, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune doesn't expect Jeffery to play, and there's a good chance the final decision won't come until Sunday morning.
Prior to his removal, Fuller had been getting beaten handily all game by Larry Fitzgerald. The veteran wideout easily outmuscled Fuller for inside position on an 8-yard touchdown in the second quarter, then fooled Fuller on a flea-flicker touchdown in the third.
In addition to giving up the two touchdowns, Fuller also took a 42-yard pass interference penalty, one week after he accrued a 34-yard infraction. Fuller's early successes during the first half of his rookie year seem like a distant memory at this point, as his performance has been on the downswing ever since training camp.
He's still expected to start Sunday against the Seahawks, but get pulled off the field early if he continues to produce negative plays.
Rolle missed the entire week of practice, leaving undrafted rookie Harold Jones-Quartey as the likely starter.
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.
Jay Cutler's upcoming absence due to a hamstring injury has precipitated Fales' addition to the active roster. Fales will serve as Jimmy Clausen's backup, but if the 2014 sixth-round pick takes the field, it would mark the first snap of Fales' brief career.
Martin, who was cut by the Bears in training camp, re-signed with the team after Antrel Rolle suffered a foot injury in Sunday's win over the Raiders. If Rolle is unavailable for Week 5, Martin or backup Harold Jones-Quartey could see the start at strong safety.
Yes, you read that correctly. With Jimmy Clausen making the start at quarterback for the injured Jay Cutler, the Bears were completely inept offensively, particularly in the passing game.
Clausen would finish with just 63 yards through the air, with Miller's third-quarter reception amounting to the team's biggest play of the afternoon. Miller only saw one target to Martellus Bennett's five, so don't expect the backup tight end to see an increased role in the offense.
Though Meredith wasn't expected to serve in much more than a special teams capacity, the undrafted rookie surprisingly finished fourth on the team in targets.
Meredith will likely head back to the inactive list this week against the Seahawks if Jeffery is healthy enough to suit up, but his performance in Week 2 may make the Bears reluctant to expose him to waivers if injuries compromise the team's depth at other positions later in the year.
Prosinski was picked up by Philadelphia recently after losing his spot with Jacksonville in late September. He played in three games early this year before losing time to an elbow/triceps strain.
For the second consecutive week, Rodgers saw more offensive snaps (nine) than fellow backup Jeremy Langford (three). However, the minimal usage of both players suggests Matt Forte is still on tap for a heavy workload each week.
Even if Forte goes down with an injury, Rodgers' small stature makes him better suited for change-of-pace duty than an every-down role.
However, Jones has a ways to go before ascending to individual defensive player relevance, as his 5 1/2 tackles per game so far this season don't represent high-end production from the linebacker spot.
After failing to see an offensive snap in the Week 3 loss to the Seahawks, Langford didn't see much more duty in Week 4, picking up only three snaps. He remains behind Matt Forte and Jacquizz Rodgers on the Bears' running-back depth chart.
It's the first time all season White has been inactive. He's a healthy scratch despite starting nine games and racking up 52 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a sack.
White was hoping to return to practice this weekend, but instead, he'll start the season on the PUP list and could miss the entire year.
After missing the first two weeks of the season with a hamstring injury and seeing limited action in the Week 3 blowout loss to the Seahawks, Porter surprisingly displaced Alan Ball from the starting lineup.
He generally fared well in holding upstart rookie Amari Cooper in check, as the No. 4 overall pick reeled in only four of nine targets for 49 yards and a touchdown, with nickel back Sherrick McManis bearing more responsibility on the score than Porter.
With Porter now well removed from the hamstring pull that limited him through much of training camp, it's likely that he'll remain in the starting lineup and function as the Bears' No. 1 corner ahead of Ball and the struggling Kyle Fuller. Look for Porter to match up with the Chiefs' Jeremy Maclin in Week 5.
Goldman's role was expected to diminish in Week 4 with Jeremiah Ratliff completing his three-game suspension, but Ratliff remained unavailable due to an injury stemming from the preseason. Goldman made the most of the opportunity, logging 30-plus snaps for the third consecutive week.
Despite his performance, the rookie's playing time still looks to be headed for a decline once Ratliff is back.
Bennett has been the largest beneficiary of Alshon Jeffery's absence, leading the team in targets, receiving yards and touchdowns through four weeks. With only so many passes to go around, Bennett may see a slight dip in opportunities once Jeffery returns, but keep in mind that offensive coordinator Adam Gase worked wonders with similarly athletic tight end Julius Thomas in Denver.
"If I can get back, I'll get back," he said.
With limited practices under his belt to kick off the week, Cutler has opened the door for a return Sunday following a hamstring strain suffered in Week 2.
His recovery is a "day-to-day" prospect, but Friday's injury report will ultimately give an indication whether game action is possible. If not, backup Jimmy Clausen will again direct the Bears' offense.
Punter Pat O'Donnell did some placekicking Tuesday, reports the Chicago Tribune.
Gafford spent the previous seven games and has appeared in 105 consecutive games.
The Bears' decision to ink McPhee to a five-year, $40 million deal in March looks to be a wise move through four games. McPhee has been the clear standout player on the Bears' defense, collecting 24 stops and two sacks in addition to the interception.
Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio should continue to devise a variety of blitz packages to maximize McPhee's impact on the opposing passing game.
Though the Bears were beaten handily in Week 3, Ball was one of the team's more impressive performers defensively. In addition to showing activity in stopping the run, Ball was excellent during the Seahawks' final drive before halftime, denying a fade route intended for Jimmy Graham and defending Chris Matthews on another pass attempt.
McClellin seems to have taken well to the move to inside linebacker, but he may need to string together a couple double-digit tackle games before those in IDP leagues jump on board.
The only player on the inactive list dealing with an injury is reserve tight end Gragg, who was listed as probable, leaving the Bills as one of the healthier teams in the league heading into Week 16. They are a 6 1/2-point favorite in Sunday's road matchup with the Raiders.
