Position Listing
Jimmy Staten
The Seahawks have signed 11 players to future contracts, the team announced Wednesday.

Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.

Cre'von LeBlanc
No Updates
Kyle Long
Long exited Thursday's game due to an undisclosed injury and will not return, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Long's exit came as a bit of a surprise as he didn't show signs of injury while in the game. Ted Larsen will fill in for Long for the remainder of the game.

Arm - Questionable for Week 7 at Green Bay
Willie Young
Young notched a pair of sacks to go along with three tackles Sunday against the Jaguars.

With the Jaguars forced to go to a pass-heavy approach because they were trailing for most of the contest, Young was able to post his second consecutive game with multiple sacks, and he's currently fourth in the NFL with six sacks. Based on his recent performance, he should be rostered in IDP leagues, especially since he finished the 2015 season with 5.5 sacks over his last seven games, making his production more of a trend than an anomaly.

Danny Mason
Mason left Thursday's game after sustaining a knee injury, his return is questionable.

It's unclear how severe Mason's knee injury is, but given that he wasn't immediately ruled out of returning it likely isn't very serious.

Knee - Injured Reserve
DeAndre Houston-Carson
Houston-Carson suffered a neck injury in Thursday's preseason game, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The severity of the injury isn't clear, but it sounds like he could be sidelined awhile.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 7 at Green Bay
Ronald Powell
After going unclaimed on waivers, the Saints placed safety Vinnie Sunseri , receiver Nick Toon and linebacker Ronald Powell on injured reserve, according to The Times-Picayune.
Mitch Unrein
The Chargers announced Wednesday that they have signed defensive lineman Mitch Unrein to a two-year deal. The contract is worth $1.9 million.

Unrein visited the team and now he has signed a contract to provide depth along the defensive line. The 27-year-old has 49 total tackles in his career.

Colin Kelly
No Updates
Jerrell Freeman
Freeman (wrist) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Packers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Freeman was limited in practice throughout the week but he isn't expected to be held back at all on Thursday. He and Danny Trevathan will start at inside linebacker once again.

Eddie Royal
Royal (toe) has been ruled out for Thursday's game in Green Bay, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Three days wasn't enough for Royal to buck the toe injury that knocked him from Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. His absence will likely help Cameron Meredith further establish himself as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Alshon Jeffery.

Toe - Inactive for Week 7 at Green Bay
Connor Barth
Barth connected on three field goals and one extra point Sunday against the Jaguars.

Barth had just two field goals in the first two games of the season, but he's now connected on six of them over the last two contests. Despite his solid production over the past two weeks, he's missed on three of his 11 field goal attempts this year, so he's no lock to keep this job long-term. However, at least for the time being, he could be a streaming option to cover bye weeks for fantasy teams.

Ted Larsen
Cardinals offensive lineman Mike Iupati (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on Aug. 20, Iupati will wait another week to make his Cardinals debut. In his place, Ted Larsen will again start at left guard.

Leonard Floyd
Floyd (calf) is active for Chicago's Week 7 game against the Packers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Floyd sat out the Bears' past three games but will make his return Thursday. It's unclear if he'll be limited at all in his return, in which case Phernell McPhee would see some extra snaps.

Lamarr Houston
Houston 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.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Charles Leno
The Bears have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's season finale against Minnesota: Jimmy Clausen (concussion), Robbie Gould (right quadriceps), Al Louis-Jean (hamstring), Chris Conte (back), Charles Leno, Austen Lane and Brandon Dunn.
Sherrick McManis
McManis (hamstring) is active for Chicago's Week 5 game against the Colts, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN reports.

McManis played through his hamstring injury last week and was expected to this week. His main role will likely be on special teams once again.

Demontre Hurst
Hurst has been promoted to the Bears' active roster, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hurst's promotion comes on the heels of Deiondre' Hall being inactive for Week 5. Hurst will likely just be a depth option and shouldn't be expected to have a large role on defense.

Marquess Wilson
Wilson (foot) landed on the reserve/PUP list Saturday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

In mid-June, Wilson re-fractured his left foot, which has sidelined him in the interim. With at least six games of this season wiped away, he'll be the fourth wideout, at best, in the Bears' current corps of wideouts.

Foot - Physically Unable to Perform
Ego Ferguson
Ferguson has been handed a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports.

After notching three tackles in four games, Ferguson was placed on season-ending injured reserve in October due to a nagging knee injury. Thus, his ban won't kick in until he's healthy enough to take the field during the 2016 campaign.

Suspension - Suspended for four games
John Timu
Timu led the Bears with eight tackles in the team's Week 17 loss to the Lions.

Timu ascended into the starting lineup over the final three games of the season and was able to make the most of the opportunity, recording 23 tackles. While Shea McClellin looks like a strong candidate to return as a starter at one of the middle linebacker spots in 2016, the remaining spot could be up for grabs between Timu, Christian Jones, and any other candidates the front office may elect to bring in this offseason.

Mike Adams
The Steelers made a slew of roster moves Monday, including placing offensive tackle Mike Adams on the PUP list to begin the season.

Pittsburgh also placed cornerback Senquez Golson and kicker Garrett Hartley on injured reserve, which means both players will miss the 2015 season.

Tight end Cameron Clear, defensive end Niko Davis and tight end Ray Hamilton were all waived/injured.

The Steelers also released G Miles Dieffenbach, WR Kenzel Doe, WR C.J. Goodwin, RB Braylon Heard, DE Joe Kruger, DT Joe Okafor, OL Collin Rahrig, CB Jordan Sullen, OT Kevin Whimpey and S Ian Wild.

Danny Trevathan
Trevathan posted four tackles Sunday against the Jaguars.

Trevathan was unable to pile up many tackles because the Jaguars only ran the football 20 times in a game they were forced to throw the ball for much of the second half. He's only recorded 14 tackles over his last three contests, and he's not really a player who will be of much use in IDP leagues if he's not racking up double-digit tackles most weeks.

Jonathan Anderson
Anderson was waived by the Bears on Tuesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The Bears cut ties with the 24-year-old linebacker after he saw a season-high 39 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. Anderson recorded four tackles in three games with the Bears, playing mostly on special teams. He now has a chance to be picked up by another team looking to add linebacker depth.

Cornelius Washington
Washington (knee) is listed as questionable on the Bears' injury report for Sunday's tilt with the Texans.

Washington sustained the injury in the team's preseason finale. He spent the week practicing in a limited role. He projects to backup Akiem Hicks, and provide defensive line depth if he can take the field Sunday.

Ka'Deem Carey
Carey totaled 48 yards on 10 carries and hauled in his only reception for nine yards in Thursday's 26-10 loss to the Packers.

Carey surprisingly received three more carries than rookie Jordan Howard, who'd been stellar during two of the last three weeks. However, it was the third-year back who found much easier sledding on the ground Thursday, while Jordan was held to just over three yards per tote. With the Bears now 1-6 and searching for answers, head coach John Fox may opt to go with the hot hand, and with 98 yards on 19 carries the last two weeks, that designation could rightfully be bestowed upon Carey for the time being.

Will Sutton
Sutton (elbow) logged five tackles in the Bears' 31-17 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

Sutton was initially listed as questionable to play, but ended up playing 45 of 68 defensive snaps for the Bears, finishing tied for fourth on the team in tackles. Barring a setback to his elbow in practice this week, he should be set to play once again in Week 4 against the Lions.

Darius Jennings
Jennings caught two passes on five targets for 25 yards Thursday against the Bears.

After a rather uneventful preseason (one catch for 12 yards), Jennings finally found himself in the middle of the action Thursday with five targets. Still, the chances of him beating out Taylor Gabriel and/or Rashard Jennings for third-string wide receiver are very slim.

Jordan Howard
Howard managed only 22 yards on seven carries and failed to catch his only target in Thursday's 26-10 loss to the Packers.

The rookie surprisingly got out-touched by Ka'Deem Carey, who received three more carries. Factoring in a scuffling performance on the ground in Week 6 against the Jaguars, Howard now has 56 yards on 22 carries in his last two games, a sharp contrast from the 229 yards on 39 carries he'd managed in the previous pair of contests. With Carey having come on the last two weeks, the Bears backfield looks like a true committee situation at present.

Eric Kush
The Buccaneers announced the signing of former Falcons offensive lineman Joe Hawley . Hawley played in 57 games (23 starts) in five seasons with Atlanta. 

To make room for him on the 53-man roster, the Bucs released center Eric Kush. Kush was a gameday inactive for the team's Week 1 loss against the Titans on Sunday.

Jay Cutler
Cutler (thumb) is inactive for Thursday's game at Green Bay, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

As expected, Cutler will cede the starting quarterback spot to Brian Hoyer, who is attempting to reach 300 yards and notch two touchdown passes for the fifth consecutive game.

Thumb - Inactive for Week 7 at Green Bay
Alshon Jeffery
Jeffery brought in just three of 11 targets for 33 yards in Thursday's 26-10 loss to the Packers.

While the catch-to-target ratio is undeniably unsightly, there is definitely a silver lining to the stat line. Jeffery's target total was easily a team high, giving him 24 looks over the last two games. Additionally, his poor conversion rate Thursday can easily be explained by having to see a bulk of those passes from the errant and rusty arm of Matt Barkley, and in one additional bit of potential good news, Jeffery is likely to be seeing throws from Jay Cutler the next time the Bears take the field in 10 days. Given his comfort level and rapport with the veteran signal-caller, he should be the recipient of plenty of his attention against a tough Vikings defense in Week 8.

Akiem Hicks
Hicks recorded a sack, a forced fumble and a tackle Saturday against the Chiefs.

Hicks also registered a pair of hits on Alex Smith and was one of the bright spots on a defense that struggled to keep the Chiefs off the field. After having a bit of a breakout with the Patriots last year, it wouldn't be a surprise if he were able to post a respectable number of sacks in Vic Fangio's defensive scheme this season. He's someone to keep an eye on in IDP leagues to see if he continues to improve.

Logan Paulsen
Paulsen signed a contract with the Bears on Sunday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports

Paulsen missed the entire 2015 season while recovering from toe surgery, but re-signed with the Redskins earlier this offseason before being released on Saturday. However, he's now slated to join the Bears, where he should be able to carve out a role as a blocking tight end, as well as a candidate to play special teams.

Ben Braunecker
Braunecker worked out on the side of practice on Thursday as he recovers from an ankle injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Braunecker is an undrafted rookie who faces an uphill battle to make Chicago's roster, as he's buried on the depth chart. The sooner he can return to action the better, and it appears he's nearing a return now that he's been able to at least work out on the side. Rob Housler and Gannon Sinclair will likely continue to see extra reps as long as Braunecker is out.

Deiondre' Hall
Hall (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Packers, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

News came earlier in the week that Hall's ankle injury would not require surgery, but the rookie cornerback will be out for at least Week 7's tilt, with his next opportunity to return coming Week 8 on Monday night against the Vikings. Sherrick McManis and Cre'von LeBlanc could be in line for additional reps when the Packers deploy multiple-receiver offensive sets, but their roles likely won't be affected too severely if Tracy Porter (knee) and Bryce Callahan (hamstring) are able to play.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 7 at Green Bay
Marcel Jensen
Jensen agreed to a contract with the Redskins on Tuesday.

Jensen was plucked off the Bills' practice squad and will take the roster spot of wide receiver Andre Roberts, who was placed on injured reserve. Jensen will be the fourth tight end on the Bills' roster, and he figures to play sparingly behind primary tight end Jordan Reed.

DeVante Bausby
Chiefs cornerback DeVante Bausby is scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday to repair his collarbone, reports The Kansas City Star. Bausby broke his collarbone last week while practicing with the Chiefs.

The Chiefs announced Bausby has been waived.

Cornelius Edison
No Updates
Joique Bell
Bell carried three times for six yards Sunday against the Lions.

After being signed earlier in the week to give the Bears backfield depth, Bell saw time on the field when Howard briefly had to leave the field. He'll likely continue to see a few carries per game until either Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) or Jeremy Langford (ankle) return to action.

Roy Robertson-Harris
No Updates
Brandon Boykin
Boykin (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.

Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Kyle Fuller
Fuller (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Fuller is still recovering from mid-August arthroscopic knee surgery, and has yet to take the field this season. He was limited in practice last week before ultimately being ruled inactive. The Bears are likely exercising caution with the 24-year-old in order to ensure his health going forward. He is trending toward another questionable designation for Sunday night's game against the Bears. Delondre' Hall figures to be in line for another start if Fuller cannot play.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Harold Jones-Quartey
Jones-Quartey is listed as active for Sunday's matchup against the Lions after clearing the league's concussion protocol earlier in the week.

Jones-Quartey will be available to start at strong safety for the Bears in their division tilt against Detroit. He has 17 tackles (13 solo) so far this season, but has yet to force a turnover.

Raheem Mostert
Mostert (hamstring) was released after the team claimed running back George Atkinson, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Mostert seemingly had the No. 3 running back spot locked up after he survived Cleveland's last round of cuts to get its roster down to 53, but clearly that wasn't the case. The 24-year-old hasn't seen much action over the past couple of weeks, dealing with a hamstring injury that forced him to miss the last two preseason games. His inability to recover quickly could've ultimately been his downfall. If Mostert clears waivers, he could find a home on the practice squad.

Jonathan Bullard
Bullard (shoulder) will play in Chicago's Week 5 contest against Indianapolis, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN reports.

Bullard practiced all week, albeit in a limited fashion. Cornelius Washington may see some extra snaps if Bullard is at all limited.

Adrian Amos
Amos (concussion) recorded three tackles and one fumble recovery in the Bears' 31-17 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

Amos was questionable to play with a concussion, but ultimately played on every snap for the Bears on defense.

Brian Hoyer
Tracey Wolfson of CBS reported during Thursday's telecast that Hoyer suffered a broken arm taking hit the first half.

Hoyer completed four passes on 11 attempts for 49 yards before the injury occurred. He was replaced by Matt Barkley, who is now the only healthy quarterback on the Bears' roster. It is not yet clear how long Hoyer will be sidelined.

Forearm - Out for Week 7 at Green Bay
Zach Miller
Miller (ribs) hauled in two of five targets for 40 yards in Thursday's 26-10 loss to the Packers.

With Brian Hoyer knocked out in the second quarter with an arm injury, the entire Bears passing game was out of sync for the remainder of the game with Matt Barkley behind center. Miller's 40 yards were therefore the team-leading total on the night, a testament to the struggles of playing with a quarterback who had made a total of one pass attempt over the previous two seasons. With Jay Cutler (thumb) likely to re-enter the starting lineup for a Week 8 tilt versus the Vikings, Miller figures to continue to retain solid fantasy value given his prominent role regardless of who's behind center.

Cameron Meredith
Meredith caught 11-of-15 targets for 113 yards Sunday against the Jaguars.

Meredith followed up his Week 5 coming-out party by posting his second consecutive game with at least 113 receiving yards. It appears quite apparent that quarterback Brian Hoyer will throw the football to whomever is in the best situation in any given play, so it's reasonable to expect that he'll continue to be a solid fantasy option in a Bears offense that's been throwing the ball well over 40 times a game since Hoyer took over.

Hroniss Grasu
Knee - Injured Reserve
Chris Prosinski
Prosinski (calf) is questionable to play in Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys.

Prosinski exited the Bears' contest on Monday night with a calf injury, but the severity of which remains vague at this point in time. If he is able to give it a go, he may be in line to see extensive action as starting free safety Adrian Amos (concussion) is also considered questionable to play.

Lamin Barrow
The Bears elevated linebacker Lamin Barrow from the practice squad and terminated the contract of linebacker Sam Acho, the team announced.
Foot - Injured Reserve
Josh Bellamy
Bellamy caught his only target for 14 yards Sunday against the Colts.

Bellamy saw a minor role, and saw very little work, especially with quarterback Brian Hoyer throwing 43 passes. He'll need the team to suffer injuries at wide receiver to gain additional fantasy value.

Christian Jones
Jones will replace Shea McClellin (concussion) in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

One week after being made a healthy inactive, Jones will return to active duty in a starting role, which had been the case in the prior 13 games he'd appeared in. The second-year linebacker hasn't quite met expectations this season, but he's still been a serviceable week-to-week source for tackles, logging 5.8 stops per game.

Matt Barkley
Barkley completed six of 15 passes for 81 yards with no touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in Thursday's 26-10 loss to the Packers. He also lost a yard on his sole rush.

Barkley was pressed into action after Brian Hoyer exited in the second quarter with what turned out to be a broken arm and looked like you'd expect a quarterback who'd made a grand total of one pass attempt since 2013 to look. The 26-year-old had trouble establishing any type of rhythm and consequently, Zach Miller found himself as the Bears' leading receiver with only 40 yards through the air. With Jay Cutler (thumb) inactive, the Bears had nowhere else to turn Thursday once Hoyer went down, but it would appear highly likely that the former will get the starting nod when Chicago takes on the Vikings in Week 8.

Cody Whitehair
No Updates
Patrick Scales
The Ravens signed long snapper Patrick Scales to his exclusive rights tender, the team announced.
Nick Kwiatkoski
Kwiatkoski (elbow) is active for the Bears' Week 5 game against the Colts, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN reports.

Kwiatkoski was limited in practice all week but is expected to be full go on Sunday.

Sam Acho
Acho (personal) is active for Thursday's game against the Packers.

Acho missed practice on Tuesday and was limited the rest of the week do to an undisclosed non-injury related issue. He figures to return to a bench role now that Leonard Floyd (claf) has returned to action.

Jacoby Glenn
Glenn will miss the remainder of Thursday's game after being diagnosed with a concussion.

The second-year corner out of Central Florida was taken to the locker room during Thursday's game to be evaluated for a possible concussion. The team's medical staff confirmed that he does indeed have a concussion, which will end his night. He got the start Thursday so the coaching staff could get an extended look at him in game action, but Glenn is more likely to end up as a fringe roster player when the Bears make their final cut-downs.

Jeremy Langford
Langford (ankle) is listed as inactive Thursday in Green Bay, Rich Campbell of Chicago Tribune reports.

Langford is approaching the front end of what was expected to be a 4-to-6 week stretch of DNPs, which could result in some practice reps next week. Alas, rookie Jordan Howard will hold down the fort in the Bears' backfield in the interim, while Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) handles a complementary role.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 7 at Green Bay
Nick Becton
The Saints declared defensive back Corey White, wideout Seantavius Jones, defensive back Stanley Jean-Baptiste, linebacker Moise Fokou, nose tackle Lawrence Virgil, offensive tackle Nick Becton and linebacker Ronald Powell inactive for Monday's game at Chicago.

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.

Elbow - Injured Reserve
Kevin White
Bears GM Ryan Pace hopes White (broken fibula) can return from injured reserve in Week 13, WGN's Adam Hoge reports.

White last played in Week 4 and will have to spend a minimum of eight weeks on injured reserve before he's eligible to play. The Bears hope he'll be the one player to return from IR, but it may not be wise to rush a young player back for the closing stages of a non-competitive season. Cameron Meredith has stepped up in a big way since White was injured, catching 20 passes for 243 yards on 27 targets over the past two games.

Lower Leg - Injured Reserve
Josh Sitton
The Packers announced Friday quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf) and running back Eddie Lacy (knee) are both listed as probable for Sunday's NFC title game at Seattle. Defensive end Josh Boyd (ankle) and guard Josh Sitton (toe) are also probable.

"Aaron is getting ready to play," McCarthy said during his Friday press conference. "Looks good. Everything is on schedule."

McCarthy also had a positive report on Lacy.

"Looks good to me," McCarthy said.

The Seahawks are considered 7 1/2-point favorites for Sunday's game.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 7 at Green Bay
Tracy Porter
Porter (knee) is active for Thursday's game against Green Bay, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Porter has been dealing with his knee injury for weeks but has sat out just one game due to the injury. He figures to start on Thursday, though Bryce Callahan could see some extra reps if Porter is limited at all.

Eddie Goldman
Goldman (ankle) is listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Packers.

Goldman was held out of practice all week and hasn't played since Week 2. Will Sutton will get the start in Goldman's place once again.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 7 at Green Bay
Bryce Callahan
Callahan (hamstring) is active for Thursday's contest against the Packers.

Callahan was held out of practice on Monday and Tuesday before participating in a limited fashion on Wednesday. His injury was previously reported to be minor and shouldn't hamper him much against Green Bay.

Pat O'Donnell
Bears kicker Robbie Gould missed Tuesday's practice due to quad soreness, coach Marc Trestman told reporters. Trestman said the team is working on a contingency plan in case Gould can't play Thursday against the Cowboys.

Punter Pat O'Donnell did some placekicking Tuesday, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Pernell McPhee
The Bears activated McPhee (knee) from the PUP list Thursday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

McPhee has completed his rehab from arthroscopic knee surgery in the offseason, and just in time for Thursday's divisional matchup against the banged-up Packers. While the outside linebacker will be available, it's unclear what type of snap count he can handle in his season debut. However, he could get the start on the weak side if Leonard Floyd (calf) misses his third consecutive game.

Bobby Massie
The NFL has suspended Cardinals offensive tackle Bobby Massie for two games after he was found to be in violation of the league's substance abuse policy, reports NFL.com.

Massie was facing a three-game suspension after being arrested while intoxicated and behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Connor Shaw
Shaw (leg) was placed on the Bears' injured reserve list on Tuesday.

Shaw suffered a broken leg during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Chiefs, but no timetable has been provided for his return. It's still possible he could return this year, though, since NFL team's are each allowed to activate any one player per season off IR following Week 6. However, it's likely that Shaw's 2016 campaign has ended before it even began.

Lower Leg - Injured Reserve
Deonte Thompson
Thompson (leg) is active for Sunday's Week 1 matchup with the Texans, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Listed fourth on the depth chart at receiver heading into the opener, Thompson won't be in line for many looks in the passing game even with the leg injury that limited him in practice earlier this week seemingly deemed a non-issue. His most important duties will come on special teams, where he serves as the Bears' kickoff returner.

Daniel Braverman
Braverman caught two of his three pass targets for 17 yards Thursday against the Browns.

Playing with the reserves in the Bears final preseason game, Braverman capped off an uninspiring preseason. The 2016 seventh-round draft choice is currently third on the depth chart at slot receiver, and he'll need the team to suffer a number of injuries to see significant playing time in the regular season.

Deon Bush
Bush (hamstring) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, and officially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Texans.

Bush dealt with a variety of injuries during the preseason, with this hamstring issue being the latest. He was a limited in practice all week. He figures to provide safety depth for the team if he can go, specifically behind strong safety Harold Jones-Quartey.
