Position Listing
Jimmy Staten
News
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
News
Long (shoulder) is active for the Bears' Week 1 matchup with the Texans on Sunday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Long, who was gifted with a four-year extension a week ago, is expected to play hurt throughout the season after he was recently diagnosed with a torn labrum in his left shoulder, according to ESPN.com's Adam Schefter. While the injury could limit Long's effectiveness as a run- and pass-blocker, the Bears are undoubtedly a better team even when their top lineman is on the field at less than 100 percent health. The team shouldn't have to alter its playbook too much to compensate for Long's injury.

Willie Young
News
Young (knee) is questionable to play Week 3 against the Cowboys.

Young appears to have suffered a knee injury during Thursday's practice and remained limited during Friday's session. Sam Acho projects to fill his place in the starting lineup if Young is unable to give it a go.

Danny Mason
News
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.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
DeAndre Houston-Carson
News
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.

Ronald Powell
News
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
News
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.

Jerrell Freeman
News
Freeman recorded 12 tackles Sunday against the Cowboys.

After posting a season-low five tackles in Week 2, Freeman recorded at least 12 tackles for the second time in three games. He's now averaging 11.33 tackles per contest, and he should continue to post nearly double-digits in the category most weeks.

Eddie Royal
News
Royal caught four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in addition to returning four punts for 40 yards Sunday against the Texans.

In his first game action since suffering a concussion early in training camp, Royal tied Alshon Jeffery for second on the team with six pass targets, behind only Kevin White, who had seven. However, Jeffery and Royal were the only receivers to post more than 34 yards in the opener. It was clear that White was struggling with his route-running, and Jay Cutler was extremely comfortable trusting Royal in the middle of the field. Although it's just one game, the veteran could end up being a surprise depth option for fantasy teams.

Connor Barth
News
Barth connected on a 34-yard field goal and converted a pair of extra point attempts Sunday against the Cowboys.

Barth made his first field goal of the season, and he ended up with five points. With only two field goal attempts over three games, he's not a fantasy option, except in the very deepest of leagues.

Jason Weaver
News
The Bears announced Monday they have signed guard Lucas Nix to a one-year contract and waived injured guard Jason Weaver, per a team release. 

Nix played in 15 games with the Raiders, but has not appeared in one since 2013, when he made 10 starts. 

Ted Larsen
News
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
News
Floyd recorded six tackles and half a sack Sunday against the Texans.

The rookie did exactly what the Bears' staff was looking for when they spent a first-round pick to select him, when he combined on a sack with Eddie Goldman. Although he won't likely be a full-time player, his ability to get to the quarterback is worth monitoring, as he could emerge as a player who could eventually have solid value in IDP leagues.

Lamarr Houston
News
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.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Charles Leno
News
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
News
The Bears and McManis agreed to a two-year contract Thursday, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Although he struggled when pressed into duty at cornerback this past season, McManis has developed into an above-average special teamer, boasting 55 tackles in that department over the course of four campaigns with the Bears. Unless injuries befall the secondary again, expect McManis to log most of his snaps on kick and punt returns yet again.

Demontre Hurst
News
The Bears announced they've reached a two-year extension with cornerback and special teams player Demontre Hurst

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
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.

Injury
Foot - Physically Unable to Perform
Ego Ferguson
News
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.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 at Indianapolis
John Timu
News
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
News
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
News
Trevathan (thumb) is ruled out for Sunday's contest.

Trevathan underwent surgery to repair his injured thumb Wednesday, but he will not be ready for Week 3 action. There was some speculation earlier in the week that Trevathan could possibly play through the pain as long as he wore a cast, but that seemed to err on the side of wishful thinking. Christian Jones could see extensive action during his absence.

Injury
Thumb - Questionable for Week 4 vs. Detroit
Jonathan Anderson
News
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
News
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
News
Carey (hamstring) will not play in the Bears' matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday.

Carey, who exited Chicago's Week 2 game with a hamstring injury, was considered doubtful to play after Friday's practice. His confirmed absence likely spells an increased workload for rookie Jordan Howard.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 4 vs. Detroit
Will Sutton
News
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.

Jordan Howard
News
Howard's teammate Jeremy Langford (ankle) is expected to miss four-to-six weeks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Already enjoying an increased role during Sunday's game against Dallas, the 21-year-old Howard saw his stock rise even higher when Langford went down with an ankle injury that has since been revealed to be serious. Given that Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) may also be unavailable, Howard could potentially serve as a three-down workhorse, at least for the immediate future. While only a fifth-round selection in the most recent draft, Howard is quite clearly the most talented pure runner on the team, and he likely would've been selected higher if he'd been a bigger factor in the passing game during his college career at UAB and Indiana. He was still a nice value at No. 150 overall, and he's thus far looked competent as a receiver in the NFL, catching six of his eight targets for 56 yards. Further helping his cause, the Bears have matchups with the banged-up Detroit (Week 4) and Indianapolis (Week 5) defenses on the horizon. Howard should be owned in all leagues.

Eric Kush
News
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
News
Cutler (thumb) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Dallas, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

While a previous report said the Bears won't make a final decision until Sunday, the 'doubtful' designation strongly suggests Cutler will miss at least one game. He didn't participate in practice all week, leaving Brian Hoyer as the likely starter Sunday against Dallas.

Injury
Thumb - Questionable for Week 4 vs. Detroit
Alshon Jeffery
News
Jeffery (knee) caught five passes for 70 yards on seven targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to Dallas.

While not visibly bothered by his injury, Jeffery surprisingly finished just third on the team in targets, trailing Kevin White (14) and Zach Miller (nine). The lack of volume is starting to become a concern, even though Jeffery is averaging 90 yards per game. He has just 20 targets through three weeks and has yet to find the end zone, though the latter issue is largely a product of playing for a dreadful team. In any case, the injury-riddled Bears are worse than they were last season, and Jeffery also has more competition for targets than he did at the time. While he's still a weekly must-start in nearly all formats, expectations shouldn't be based on last year's massive volume. Jeffery will face the 49ers in Week 4.

Greg Scruggs
News
Scruggs (chest) had one pass target, but failed to record a reception Thursday against the Browns.

Although he's now healthy enough to play, Scruggs could be on the roster bubble as the team trims its roster to 53 players. He currently is near the bottom of the depth chart at tight end.

Akiem Hicks
News
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
News
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
News
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.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 4 vs. Detroit
Deiondre' Hall
News
The Bears selected Hall in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 127th overall.

Hall is a huge corner with an enormous reach (34 and 3/8-inch arms), and his combination of explosiveness (127-inch broad jump) and quickness (4.06-second 20-yard shuttle) give him a chance to stick as an outside NFL corner despite below average speed (4.68-second 40-yard dash).

DeVante Bausby
News
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
Roy Robertson-Harris
No Updates
Brandon Boykin
News
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.

Injury
Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Kyle Fuller
News
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.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Harold Jones-Quartey
News
Jones-Quartey recorded six tackles Saturday against the Chiefs.

Jones-Quartey started at safety for the third time this preseason, and he led the team in tackles against the Chiefs. He's likely set to be the Week 1 starter, and he's in line to record a fair number of tackles each week, though he's not looking like he'll be a strong IDP option.

Raheem Mostert
News
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
News
Bullard recorded two tackles Thursday against the Browns.

Bullard played with the backups, but had a tackle for a loss along with solo tackle on a pair of running plays. Although he'll start the season as a rotational player, the rookie has shown excellent burst off the line, and he could see his role increase as the season progresses.

Adrian Amos
News
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
News
Hoyer completed 30 of 49 passes for 317 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

With Jay Cutler (thumb) sidelined, the Bears went three-and-out on their first two drives, allowing Ezekiel Elliott and Co. to build a 24-3 lead by the half. Hoyer wasn't actually to blame, as the Bears were held back by penalties and an inconsistent rushing game, in addition to Dallas' dominance of possession. In fact, Chicago only ran 18 plays in the first half, including six on a drive that started at the team's own 25-yard line with 38 seconds remaining before the break. Hoyer finally took advantage of the favorable matchup after halftime, mostly honing in on Zach Miller and Kevin White, with the former accounting for both touchdowns. Things briefly got somewhat interesting midway through the fourth quarter, but Hoyer put the nail in his team's coffin with a sloppy fumble that could've easily been avoided. He'll draw another favorable matchup in San Francisco next week, unless Cutler is ready to return.

Zach Miller
News
Miller caught eight passes for 78 yards and a pair of touchdowns on nine targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Although he actually trailed Kevin White for the team lead in targets, Miller finally came through with the breakout performance many were expecting prior to the season. It happened with Brian Hoyer under center, but while Hoyer's final statistics didn't look bad, he was unable to move the ball until Dallas had a three-score lead. Regardless of whether Jay Cutler (thumb) or Hoyer is the quarterback, Miller will be worth keeping a close eye on, as he was startable in most leagues last last December. While unlikely to be efficient, the Chicago passing attack does have some garbage-time potential.

Cameron Meredith
News
Meredith caught two of his three pass targets for 24 yards Sunday against the Cowboys.

Meredith caught a 24-yard pass to account for all of his yardage. He's unlikely to see much more action than he had in this contest unless the Bears suffer injuries at wide receiver.

Hroniss Grasu
Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Chris Prosinski
News
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
News
The Bears elevated linebacker Lamin Barrow from the practice squad and terminated the contract of linebacker Sam Acho, the team announced.
Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Josh Bellamy
News
Bellamy (shoulder) is active for the Bears' Week 1 matchup with the Texans on Sunday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The Bears added Bellamy to the injury report Friday after he was a limited participant in practice, but he might have been restricted as a means of not aggravating the existing shoulder ailment. Bellamy is firmly behind Alshon Jeffery, Kevin White and Eddie Royal on the depth chart and shouldn't be expected to see many targets from quarterback Jay Cutler in the season opener.

Christian Jones
News
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
News
The Bears promoted Barkley from the practice squad to the active roster Thursday.

Barkley will join the active roster to provide quarterback depth with Jay Cutler dealing with a thumb injury and seemingly trending toward unavailability for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. If Cutler is indeed ruled out for the Week 3 matchup, Barkley will serve as the backup quarterback behind Brian Hoyer.

Cody Whitehair
No Updates
Patrick Scales
News
The Ravens signed long snapper Patrick Scales to his exclusive rights tender, the team announced.
Nick Kwiatkoski
News
Kwiatkoski (hamstring) recorded one tackle Thursday against the Browns.

After missing the first three preseason games, it was encouraging to see Kwiatkoski get on the field before the regular-season opener. He'll likely see much of his work on special teams this season.

Sam Acho
News
Acho has agreed to a one-year contract with the Bears.

Acho will remain in Chicago after posting 39 tackles in 15 games for the Bears last season. While the presence of fellow defenders Pernell McPhee, Lamarr Houston and Willie Young blocks Acho path to consistent snaps, his experience should add depth to the Bears' linebacking corp once again.

Jacoby Glenn
News
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
News
Langford (ankle) is expected to miss four-to-six weeks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Langford apparently suffered a severe sprain, potentially to his upper ankle. His expected absence will leave Chicago's backfield in the hands of Jordan Howard and (possibly) Ka'Deem Carey, the former of whom sat out Week 3 with a hamstring injury. Langford was already starting to lose playing time before he suffered the injury, and it now seems Howard could be set for a heavy workload. The Chicago backfield still requires close monitoring, though everything seems to be pointing in Howard's direction.

Nick Becton
News
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
News
White caught six passes for 62 yards on a team-high 14 targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

It's tough to seem invisible when you get 14 targets, but White almost managed the feat until he made an acrobatic, 32-yard grab late in the fourth quarter, providing his only real highlight of the game. Zach Miller and Alshon Jeffery were both far more efficient, but the Bears will likely keep feeding their young wideout in what's quickly shaped up as a rebuilding year. Next up is a Detroit team that was roasted by Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson on Sunday.

Josh Sitton
News
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.

Tracy Porter
News
Porter tallied four tackles in the Bears' 31-17 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

Porter was questionable to play with a hamstring injury, but ended up playing every defensive snap. He should be good to play again in Week 4 against the 49ers.

Eddie Goldman
News
Updating a previous note, Goldman (ankle) has been ruled out for four weeks, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Goldman is dealing with a high ankle sprain that is expected to sideline him until Week 7 when the Bears take on the Packers. The defensive tackle is just one of the many injuries that resulted from Monday's loss to the Eagles. Danny Trevathan is expected to miss extended time as he undergoes finger surgery, while Lamar Houston was lost for the year with a torn ACL. Not to mention Jay Cutler is nursing a thumb injury which will keep him sidelined for some time. In Goldman's absence, look for Will Sutton to take over as a starter.

Bryce Callahan
News
Callahan (concussion) was inactive for the Bears' Week 3 matchup against the Cowboys.

Callahan continues to work his way back from a concussion he suffered in Week 2.

Pat O'Donnell
News
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
News
McPhee (knee) was placed on the Bears' reserve/PUP list over the weekend, the Chicago Tribune reports.

That designation ensures that McPhee, the team's top prize in free agency last offseason, will be sidelined for at least the team's first six games while he recovers from the knee injury. McPhee has a history of knee issues and saw his snaps limited in the second half of his first season with the Bears to the same injury, so there's some justifiable concern that he may not be ready to go by Week 7. In the meantime, coach John Fox will look to projected starters Lamarr Houston and Willie Young along with rookie first-round pick Leonard Floyd to provide some pass-rushing from the outside linebacker spots while McPhee is sidelined.

Bobby Massie
News
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
News
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.

Injury
Lower Leg - Injured Reserve
Deonte Thompson
News
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
News
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
News
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.
