Blanchard was on the practice squads of the Bears and Panthers in 2012-13 and spent all of last year on the Panthers' injured reserve list after suffering a concussion during a preseason game.
Blanchard worked out for the Packers and coach Mike McCarthy last week. Green Bay has not re-signed No. 2 quarterback Matt Flynn.
Lee served as the Bears' No. 2 tight end for the contest, after Martellus Bennett (ribs) was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Despite the upgrade, Lee failed to see much involvement in the offense, which will likely remain the case for what's left of the season.
The Bears are 6-point underdogs for Sunday's game.
Forte said in late December that he wants to return but doesn't think it will happen. WR Alshon Jeffery will likely be the Bears' top priority in free agency, as Jeremy Langford showed signs that he may be ready to replace Forte as the lead back. The 30-year-old Forte has aged well for his position, so he shouldn't have much trouble finding a starting job in free agency. However, he probably won't match the gargantuan workloads that he handled for much of his time in Chicago, where he had three seasons (2008, 2013, 2014) with 350+ touches.
Young saw his streak of five consecutive games with a sack come to an end last week against the Buccaneers, but he'll attempt to end the season on a high note Sunday. The rib injury limited him in his two practice appearances this week, however, which could result in a smaller snap count.
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 ends his season with 32 tackles and four sacks over 15 games. He'll be replaced in the starting lineup by Will Sutton.
Currently a member of the Bears' practice squad, Saunders was handed a four-game ban on Nov. 10 for violating an undisclosed NFL policy, which has seemingly been confirmed. Because the initial suspension occurred with eight outings remaining on the Bears' slate, it will extend into next season.
Royal's absence will give quarterback Jay Cutler few options to work with in the passing game, as Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Martellus Bennett (ribs) on injured reserve and Zach Miller (toe) ruled out. It's expected that Marc Mariani and Josh Bellamy will serve as the two starting wideouts, but neither makes for a strong fantasy play.
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.
With Pernell McPhee (knee) sitting out the contest, Willie Young and Sam Acho received the starts at the two outside linebacker spots, but it was Houston who provided the greatest impact of the trio. Even while coming off the bench, Houston (52 snaps) still outpaced Acho (32) for playing time, and that arrangement should continue to hold while Houston continues to produce. A massive bust a season ago, Houston seems to have gotten comfortable with his role as a pass-rushing 3-4 linebacker, as he's accrued five of his sacks on the season in the last six games.
McManis passed through the league's concussion protocol fairly quickly, as he suffered the injury last week against the Redskins and was back on the field for practice Friday. He'll likely work as the Bears' nickel back for Week 15.
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's foot injury proves season-ending, and leaves an already beat-up group of Chicago pass catchers even thinner. Wilson heads into his contract year with a modest but efficient total of 28 catches for 464 yards and one touchdown on 51 targets (9.1 YPT).
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.
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.
The 33 made field goals were a club record, breaking Gould's own mark of 32 set in the 2006 season. Despite that achievement, the season still seemed like a disappointment for Gould, who missed critical field-goal attempts in eventual losses to the 49ers and Redskins in Weeks 13 and 14 that effectively quashed the Bears' slim playoff hopes. However, given his strong overall body of work since joining the Bears, Gould should retain plenty of job security heading into 2016.
After being inactive in four of the Bears' first eight games, Carey saw his offensive snaps rise in the second half of the season, particularly when Matt Forte was banged up. Though the coaching staff placed a decent amount of trust in Carey, the second-year back was unable to do much with the opportunity, averaging just 3.7 yards per carry. While Forte will become a free agent this offseason, rookie Jeremy Langford looks primed to assume the top spot on the depth chart if Forte doesn't return, leaving Carey without a clear path to a heavy workload in 2016.
Sutton's stat line was almost identical to what he posted a season earlier as a rookie (22 tackles, two passes defensed in 15 games). The defensive lineman is still looking for his first career sack, and doesn't figure to offer much production in that category while the Bears continue to utilize him primarily as a 3-4 end.
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.
Shea McClellin is set to miss his first game of the season due to a knee injury, paving the way for Reynolds to pick up his first extended snaps of the season. While his placement at middle linebacker should lend itself to plenty of tackle opportunities, Reynolds will need to make good on that production over multiple games before those in IDP leagues look to him for help.
Cutler had seven multi-interception games in 2014, but it took him until his 15th game of the year in 2015 to have such a performance. Even with a terrible ending to the year, Cutler set a new career high in QB rating this season under new offensive coordinator Adam Gase. With Gase expected to be a hot head-coaching candidate in the coming weeks, whether Cutler takes another step toward his skills' promise next season may depend on how the coaching carousel shakes out.
Jeffery's 2015 campaign -- his fourth with the Bears -- was hampered by nagging injuries that limited him to just nine games. When healthy enough to suit up, he was productive for the team, catching 54 passes for 807 yards and four touchdowns. Looking ahead, the 25-year-old -- who now has the entire offseason to bounce back from his various aches and pains -- is slated to become a free agent, and we suspect that the Bears will make retaining the talented wideout a priority, with the team applying its franchise tag on Jeffery one possible outcome to that end. In his absence in the team's regular season finale against the Lions, Eddie Royal, Marc Mariani and Josh Bellamy are in line to head the team's Week 17 wideout corps.
Housler started the Bears' final game of the season with Martellus Bennett (ribs) and Zach Miller (toe) sitting out, recording two catches for 18 yards in the Week 17 loss. With both Bennett and Miller expected back for 2016, Housler will have a difficult time climbing higher than third on the depth chart at tight end if he ends up sticking around with the Bears in training camp.
After an up-and-down rookie season, Fuller regressed a little bit as a sophomore, finishing with nine fewer tackles and two fewer interceptions. The Bears spent a first-round draft pick on Fuller in 2014 with the belief that he'd be a strong successor to Charles Tillman, but Fuller will need to demonstrate some progress in 2016 if he hopes to cement himself as a part of the team's long-term outlook.
Antrel Rolle remains sidelined with an ankle injury, allowing the undrafted rookie to see additional defensive snaps. Jones-Quartey finished with a modest four tackles in the Week 5 win over the Chiefs, and he'll probably need to double that output over a span of multiple weeks before he gains much traction as an IDP option.
Amos was able to beat out Brock Vereen for a starting job at safety and held on to the role all season, but rarely provided much of an impact beyond his tackle totals. He failed to produce a single turnover, and the lack of pass breakups suggest that he didn't really possess much of a nose for the ball. The Bears may look to upgrade their secondary during the offseason, which may spell trouble for Amos.
Rolle's injury is described as a sprained knee, which suggests that he should be recovered well in advance of the 2016 season. In seven games for the Bears in 2015, Rolle logged 35 tackles. In a corresponding move, OT Tayo Fabuluje was reinstated to the team's active roster.
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.
Fales was promoted to the active roster earlier this season when Jay Cutler was injured. This time around, Fales' activation is the result of his team's decision to move on from backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Though highly unproven, Fales probably can't be any worse than his former teammate.
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.
Miller has been banged up for much of the second half of the season, but will miss his first game after failing to participate in practice this week. Though he'll be unavailable for Week 17, Miller certainly did enough this season to show that he can be a factor in the passing game in 2016. He finishes the year with 34 receptions for 439 yards and five touchdowns.
Meredith, an undrafted rookie out of Illinois State, was a pleasant surprise early on after cracking the roster out of training camp. After he was inactive for the season opener, Meredith saw 10 targets in the following four games, reeling in seven for catches. However, Meredith saw his role decline down the stretch once the Bears' wideout corps got a bit healthier, and may have difficulty cracking the Bears' roster next fall.
It was far and away the best season as a receiver for Mariani, who had made his living exclusively as a kick returner prior during his career. However, a number of injuries to the Bears' wideout corps opened up extended opportunities for Mariani, and he developed a surprising rapport with quarterback Jay Cutler. He saved his best work for Week 17 against the Lions, catching six balls for 80 yards while making the start with all of Alshon Jeffery, Marquess Wilson, and Eddie Royal sidelined by injury. Despite his accomplishments, there's no guarantee that Mariani will stick around with the Bears in 2016, especially after he routinely showed questionable ball security as a returner and rarely delivered explosive plays.
It's not clear if Prosinski was at fault for the botched coverage that resulted in a 71-yard game-winning touchdown for the 49ers' Torrey Smith in overtime, but the safety arrived too late to prevent the score. Though he's continued to fill in at safety for the injured Antrel Rolle, he's not exactly thriving. He hasn't accrued more than six tackles in any week this season and has produced just one turnover.
Rodgers' broken right arm will end his season after just five games and likely result in rookie Jeremy Langford seeing even more snaps behind starter Matt Forte at running back. While Ka'Deem is in the mix as well, Chicago also signed free agent Antone Smith on Monday to replace Rodgers going forward.
Bellamy was active for all 16 games and even saw a couple of starts at wide receiver due to an assortment of injuries, but he rarely provided much of an impact. Still, Bellamy is a valued member of the Bears' special teams units, and that skill may be enough for him to retain a roster spot coming out of training camp next season.
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.
Hardy reportedly questioned Coleman's work ethic during a conditioning drill, which led Coleman to call Hardy a "woman beater."
Hardy was accused of domestic abuse and was found guilty by a North Carolina judge. On the subsequent appeal, prosecutors dropped charges against Hardy and the case was never presented in front of a jury.
Hardy has been suspended by the NFL for 10 games due to what transpired in that case. According to FOX Sports, the confrontation between Hardy and Coleman remained verbal.
After being released by the Bears shortly after training camp, Acho quickly re-signed with the club and ended up playing in every game after the season opener. He made a few starts at outside linebacker down the stretch, but typically found himself in a rotation with Pernell McPhee, Willie Young, and Lamarr Houston. All three players showcased more pass-rushing ability than Acho, who failed to notch a single sack.
Langford's five touches were his lowest total since Week 7. Still, the future looks bright for the rookie. Despite tallying 92 fewer touches than Forte this season, Langford scored more touchdowns than Forte, seven to six. With Forte now a free agent on the wrong side of 30, Langford may be in line for the top of the depth chart should Chicago look to make the future now.
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, the seventh overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, can officially be ruled out for his entire rookie season, as the deadline to activate him from the PUP list was Tuesday afternoon. He should have plenty of time to reach full health before offseason activities, and there's not much standing between him and a starting job in the 2016 Chicago offense. His career is obviously off to a poor start, but he's still a legitimate top-10 talent with elite physical tools.
Though he was limited by the ankle injury of the season, Porter will be cleared to assume No. 1 cornerback duties for the Bears. However, he'll face the unenviable task of chasing the Lions' Calvin Johnson all around the field Sunday.
The rookie defensive tackle and former second-round pick notched 4.5 sacks in 15 games throughout the season before the severely sprained ankle suffered in Week 16 forced the Bears to shut him down for the year. With Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) also headed to IR, the team signed defensive linemen Terry Williams and Greg Scruggs on Wednesday.
Unable to play through a rib injury on Thanksgiving, Bennett then returned for Sunday's loss to the 49ers, catching three passes for 14 yards on four targets. He actually wasn't listed on the injury report last week, but it seems unlikely that this would be unrelated to the rib issue from a couple weeks ago.
Zach Miller is now set to serve as Chicago's top tight end, with Khari Lee and Rob Housler providing depth. Bennett should be fine for offseason activities, as he's likely just dealing with broken ribs, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
Punter Pat O'Donnell did some placekicking Tuesday, reports the Chicago Tribune.
The Bears have been listed McPhee as questionable to play in advance of the last three games, but once again, he'll be available to suit up. However, the Bears continue to limit McPhee's snaps to reduce the strain on his knee, so he doesn't make for an attractive IDP target for the Week 17 slate.
The groin injury limited Ball throughout practice this week, but it was likely the case where the Bears just wanted to preserve his health in advance of the Week 5 tilt. Ball saw his snap count drop significantly a week ago, as it appears Tracy Porter has now passed him up on the depth chart and taken his starting role.
McClellin ended up finishing second on the team in tackles, but likely would have led the Bears had he not missed three games due to a knee injury and one contest due to a concussion. He was able to return from the head injury in advance of the Week 17 loss to the Lions, but only played 11 snaps, as the Bears elected not to overwork him. Even so, the team's coaching staff seemed very satisfied with McClellin in his first season as a middle linebacker, so he could be back as a starter for the club in 2016.
Both of Thompson's two catches on the season went for huge yardage, but those opportunities only came because the top four wideouts on the depth chart -- Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal, Kevin White, and Marquess Wilson -- all missed time in the second half of the year. Thompson also served as the Bears' kick returner during his stint with the club, where he posted an impressive average of 29.2 yards per return. His success on that front may be enough for him to retain a roster spot with the Bears in 2016, though he'll still need to turn in a strong training camp.
