Position Listing
Khari Lee
The Texans traded tight end Khari Lee to the Bears on Wednesday, the Bears announced. In exchange for Lee, the Texans will receive a sixth-round draft pick in the 2017 draft.
Vladimir Ducasse
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
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
Forte accumulated 71 yards on 18 carries and hauled in five passes for 38 yards and the game-winning touchdown in Sunday's 18-17 triumph over the Chiefs.

As has become commonplace of late, Forte was bottled up in the run game, finishing with less than a four-yard-per-carry average for the third straight week. During that span, his production has also been devoid of big plays, as he's failed to gain more than 12 yards on any of his 63 carries. That said, Forte remains one of Jay Cutler's favorite check-down options in the pass game, and the running back's prowess as a receiver paid huge dividends in the fourth quarter. With the Bears trailing 17-12, Forte reeled in a seven-yard dart from Cutler with 18 seconds remaining, taking it into the end zone for the go-ahead score. It marked just his second touchdown of the season, with his first coming all the way back in the Week 1 loss to the Packers. Despite Forte's relatively disappointing production over the last four weeks, he'll remain a focal point in the team's attack, and looks like a dependable fantasy option heading into the upcoming week's matchup against 0-5 Detroit.

Willie Young
Young recorded his first sack of the season in Sunday's 18-17 win over the Chiefs.

After an outstanding 10-sack season with the Bears in 2014, Young found himself on the roster bubble through most of training camp with the team transitioning to a 3-4 system that made the longtime down lineman an awkward scheme fit at outside linebacker. As a result, Young had seen limited snaps through the Bears' first four games while assuming a backup role, but he gradually seems to be getting a little more comfortable. Although it appears Lamarr Houston and Sam Acho will serve as the primary replacement for the recently-traded Jared Allen, Young will continue to rotate in off the bench in pass-rushing situations.

Antone Smith
Smith signed with the Bears on Monday.

Smith's signing in Chicago comes in wake of Jacquizz Rodgers suffering a fractured arm during Sunday's game against the Chiefs. After an explosive start to last season, Smith suffered a broken leg of his own and was released with an injury settlement from the Falcons ahead of the current campaign. Now, Smith will have an opportunity to earn touches as a reserve runner in the Bears' backfield for the remainder of this season.

Terrance Mitchell
Four injured or ailing Bears have been ruled out for the Sunday game against Detroit, including placekicker Robbie Gould (quad). The others are guard Kyle Long (hip), defensive tackle Will Sutton (illness) and safety Chris Conte (back).

Quarterback David Fales, cornerback Terrance Mitchell and defensive end Trevor Scott are all healthy scratches.

Barrett Jones
As the Rams start the final week of OTAs, three players are still battling in a wide-open race to be starting center. 

Tim Barnes, Barrett Jones and Demetrius Rhaney are vying for the job, and the competition will liekly last far into training camp. 

"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."

Jermon Bushrod
Bears offensive tackle Jermon Bushrod (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

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.

Jarvis Jenkins
Defensive end Jarvis Jenkins had a huge game for the Bears in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Seahawks, finishing with a career-high 10 tackles and two sacks.

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.

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.

Patrick Omameh
Among the Buccaneers inactives for Week 16 against the Rams, three are sidelined as a result of injuries. Offensive lineman Carl Nicks (foot), defensive lineman Da'Quan Bowers (knee) and defensive back Mark Barron (hamstring) headline the team's inactive list.

Additionally, linebacker Danny Lansanah, defensive lineman Matthew Masifilo , running back Lonnie Pryor and offensive lineman Patrick Omameh are all out of uniform Sunday.  

Eddie Royal
Bears wide receiver Eddie Royal (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Royal's status heading into Sunday was on shaky ground after he failed to practice this week, and it appears he wasn't able to progress enough over the weekend to give it a go in Week 5.

While he hasn't been a standout performer this season, Royal was likely in line to see a heavy volume of targets with Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) still sidelined. Instead, the Bears will be without both of their top receivers, leaving Marquess Wilson and the relatively unproven Josh Bellamy as the Bears' starting wideouts.

Ankle - Missed Week 5 at Kansas City
Jason Weaver
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. 

Matt Slauson
The Bears placed guard Matt Slauson on injured reserve Saturday and promoted tight end Blake Annen to the active roster.

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.

Lamarr Houston
New Bears coach John Fox said he'll play Lamarr Houston at outside linebacker, not defensive end, in the team's base 3-4 defense, reports the Chicago Tribune. Houston, 27, is coming back from a torn ACL he suffered against the Patriots while celebrating a sack in a Week 8 loss.

Houston has 17 sacks in his five-year career.

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
Bears cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, the Chicago Tribune reports.

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.

Brandon Dunn
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.
Demontre Hurst
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
Wilson hauled in six of eight targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 18-17 win over the Chiefs.

With Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (ankle) inactive Sunday, Wilson became the lead option in the Bears' receiving corps for the first time in his career, and certainly didn't disappoint. The 6-foot-4 wideout used his ample size and athleticism to make big plays, ripping the Chiefs secondary for receptions of 33 and 22 yards, the latter of which came on his first touchdown reception of the season, setting the stage for the Bears' fourth-quarter comeback. Though he didn't score the go-ahead touchdown for Chicago, Wilson played an integral role on the final drive, seeing two targets and drawing a pivotal 24-yard pass interference penalty. With back-to-back weeks of at least eight catches and 80 receiving yards on his game log, Wilson will likely attract interest on the waiver wire, but his fantasy stock for the Week 6 matchup against the Lions will be tied heavily to the health of Jeffery and Royal. If either or both players are deemed ready to return next Sunday, Wilson will likely see his targets tail off quite a bit.

Ego Ferguson
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.

John Timu
No Updates
Robbie Gould
Gould nailed both of his two field-goal attempts in Sunday's 18-17 win over the Chiefs.

The kicks came from 30 and 44 yards, amounting to relative chip shots for the ultra-accurate Gould. Unfortunately for Gould's fantasy owners, they amounted to the only opportunities he received on the day, as the Bears went for two points on both of the fourth-quarter touchdowns they recorded.

Jonathan Anderson
No Updates
Cornelius Washington
A quad injury caused the Bears to place defensive lineman Cornelius Washington on injured reserve, the team announced Monday. With an open roster spot, the team re-signed linebacker Sam Acho.
Quad - IR. Out for season
Ka'Deem Carey
The Bears got a few offensive contributions in Monday's 31-15 home loss to the Saints. Among them, rookie running back Ka'Deem Carey caught all three of his targets for 39 yards and had a 4-yard carry. Tight end Dante Rosario made a 4-yard catch. Wideout Josh Morgan was targeted once without a catch.

They'll play the Lions in Week 16.

Will Sutton
Bears defensive end Will Sutton (biceps) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

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.

Elbow - Missed Week 5 at Kansas City
Paul Lasike
No Updates
Jay Ratliff
Ratliff (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

After serving a three-game suspension to begin the season and missing another game due to the ankle injury he sustained in the preseason, Ratliff is finally ready to make his 2015 debut. He's expected to start at the three-technique tackle spot, moving rookie Eddie Goldman to a bench role.

Will Montgomery
Bears center Will Montgomery suffered a fractured left tibia in Sunday's win over the Raiders and has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

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.

The team is expected to replace him in the lineup with rookie Hroniss Grasu, who has been inactive for all four games, or move left guard Matt Slauson over to center.

LaRoy Reynolds
Linebacker LaRoy Reynolds was released by the Jaguars on Saturday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

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.

Jay Cutler
Cutler (hamstring) completed 26-of-45 passes for 252 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions in Sunday's 18-17 victory over the Chiefs. He picked up an additional 15 rushing yards on four carries.

During his tenure in Chicago, Cutler has often been chided for his inability to produce in big moments, but he's done his best to rewrite that narrative by leading the Bears to comeback victories in both of the last two weeks. Though his first quarter fumble directly resulted in a Chiefs touchdown, Cutler did well in protecting the ball the rest of the way, finishing without an interception for the first time this season. More importantly, he showed incredible poise on the Bears' final two drives of the game. He first found Marquess Wilson for a 22-yard touchdown pass with 3:05 remaining in the fourth quarter, and then after a Chiefs three-and-out, Cutler commanded the offense on a eight-play, 67-yard drive that culminated in a go-ahead touchdown reception by Matt Forte with 18 seconds remaining. Cutler continues to play through a hamstring injury that was initially expected to sideline him for both of these last two games, but he's shown no signs of obvious rust and has improbably put the Bears in strong position to get back to the .500 mark with a road win next week against the 0-5 Lions.

Alshon Jeffery
Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is not expected to play Sunday against the Chiefs, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Jeffery was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday but was held out completely Friday, though the Bears allowed a number of banged up players to sit that day. With Eddie Royal (ankle) also potentially missing out, Marquess Wilson and Josh Bellamy could start our wide.

Hamstring - Missed Week 5 at Kansas City
Ryan Seymour
Browns backup center Ryan Seymour was suspended Monday for four games without pay for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Seymour, who appeared in 11 games in 2014, is in his third NFL season.
Kyle Fuller
Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller was benched in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 48-23 loss to the Cardinals in favor of reserve cornerback Terrance Mitchell, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. He finished the game with one tackle and played 50 of a possible 59 defensive snaps. 

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.

Harold Jones-Quartey
No Updates
Gannon Sinclair
The Cardinals relased punter Dave Zastudil, LB Lorenzo Alexander, ILB Glenn Carson, G Nate Isles, ILB Edwin Jackson, ILB Andrae Kirk, S Shaq Richardson, TE Gannon Sinclair, WR Ryan Spadola and S Darren Woodard on Monday.

They also waived/injured wide receiver Travis Harvey (hamstring), who will be placed on injured reserve if he clears waivers.

Adrian Amos
Bears safety Adrian Amos notched five tackles in Sunday's 22-20 win over the Raiders.Amos has recorded exactly five tackles in three of the Bears' four games this season, but his lack of turnover production thus far makes him mostly irrelevant for individual defensive player purposes.
Antrel Rolle
Rolle (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Rolle's unavailability doesn't register as a surprise after he was listed doubtful heading into the week with the ankle issue. The Bears haven't relayed a timetable for Rolle's return, so there's a decent possibility that he could miss further action beyond Sunday's game. Harold Jones-Quartey is expected to start at safety in Rolle's stead.

Ankle - Missed Week 5 at Kansas City
Tayo Fabuluje
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.

David Fales
The Bears activated quarterback David Fales from the practice squad Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

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.

Sherrod Martin
Safety Sherrod Martin signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

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.

Zach Miller
Bears tight end Zach Miller recorded one reception for a team-leading 21 yards in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Seahawks.

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.

Cameron Meredith
Meredith hauled in all four of his targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 18-17 win over the Chiefs.

As a result of injuries to the Bears' top two wideouts (Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal), Meredith moved up to third on the team's depth chart Sunday, finishing the afternoon second on the team in receiving yardage. Though the undrafted rookie lacks in pedigree, at 6-foot-3 and with speed to burn, Meredith makes for an interesting developmental player for the Bears. However, any opportunities he earns in the passing game over the balance of the season will likely be tied to the health of the team's more established wideouts week in and week out.

Marc Mariani
Mariani failed to catch any of his three targets in Sunday's win over the Chiefs, but did gain 20 yards on three punt returns.

Mariani was nearly credited with his first points of the season when he hauled in a target from Jay Cutler on a fourth-quarter two-point attempt, but after an official review, it was determined that the receiver failed to break the plane of the goal line with the ball. Since the reception came on a two-point attempt, Mariani officially has no catches on the season, but it was merely surprising that Cutler even targeted him in such a crucial scenario. Due to his low placement on the Bears' receiver depth chart, Mariani will continue to provide most of his utility on special teams. He's averaging 9.7 yards on seven punt returns and 26 yards on seven kickoff returns this season.

Hroniss Grasu
No Updates
Chris Prosinski
The Eagles have signed strong safety Chris Prosinski to a two-year contract worth $1,048 million, per ESPN, which is further reporting that none of it is guaranteed.

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.

Jacquizz Rodgers
Rodgers has been placed on the Bears' injured reserve list after suffering a fractured arm in Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

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.

Arm - IR. Out for season
Lamin Barrow
The Bears elevated linebacker Lamin Barrow from the practice squad and terminated the contract of linebacker Sam Acho, the team announced.
Josh Bellamy
Bellamy snatched six of eight targets Sunday for 31 yards in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

The absences of Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (ankle) paved the way for Bellamy to enter the starting lineup for the second time this season. Despite the decent target volume, Bellamy failed to come through with many notable plays, as his biggest gain on the afternoon went for just eight yards. Even when the Bears' receiving corps finds itself at full health, Bellamy should still remain active due to the contributions he offers on special teams, but for fantasy purposes, his upside appears fairly limited.

Christian Jones
Bears linebacker Christian Jones accumulated five tackles in the Bears' Week 4 win over the Raiders.

Jones remains entrenched as a starter at the middle linebacker spot next to Shea McClellin, especially after his top threat to the starting job, Jon Bostic, was recently dealt to the Patriots.

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.

Ryan Mundy
As anticipated, Bears safety Ryan Mundy has been given the thumbs-up to play in Week 4 against the Packers. He practiced in full the last two days in overcoming a shoulder problem.

Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Senorise Perry
The Bears placed running back Senorise Perry on injured reserve Tuesday to reach the 75-man roster limit. He is in his second season out of Louisville.
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Sam Acho
A quad injury caused the Bears to place defensive lineman Cornelius Washington on injured reserve, the team announced Monday. With an open roster spot, the team re-signed linebacker Sam Acho.
Jacoby Glenn
No Updates
Jeremy Langford
Langford carried the rock two times for minus-2 yards and gained 14 yards on his lone reception in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

After touching the ball just once in the Bears' previous two games, Langford saw more involvement in Sunday's gameplan, but that may have just been a byproduct of Jacquizz Rodgers leaving the game with an elbow injury. Rodgers' status heading into next week's matchup against the Lions remains to be determined, but even if Langford assumes the backup role that game, the Bears figure to lean heavily on do-everything lead back Matt Forte.

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.

Kevin White
Bears rookie wide receiver Kevin White will need surgery to repair a stress fracture in his shin, general manager Ryan Pace told the media on Saturday. 

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. 

Shin - PUP. Out until at least early November
Tracy Porter
Bears cornerback Tracy Porter entered the starting lineup in Sunday's win over the Raiders, collecting two tackles and knocking down one pass while seeing 58 snaps.

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.

Eddie Goldman
Bears defensive tackle Eddie Goldman notched his first NFL sack in Sunday's 22-20 win over the Raiders.

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.

Martellus Bennett
Bennett caught four passes on 11 targets in Sunday's win over the Chiefs, accumulating 32 receiving yards.

As was expected Sunday with both Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (ankle) out, Bennett led the Bears in targets, but failed to do much with those opportunities. While it was a disappointing effort for Bennett on the heels of his season-best performance a week earlier against the Raiders (11 catches, 83 yards, one touchdown), the fact that he's been seeing so much volume in the passing game the last two weeks bodes well for his future production. He should be considered one of the top fantasy options at tight end heading into the Bears' Week 6 matchup against the 0-5 Lions.

Jimmy Clausen
Clausen (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Clausen was a late addition to the Bears' injury report after the back issue only limited him during Thursday's practice this week, but it appears he's feeling strong enough to serve in a backup capacity behind Jay Cutler. The Bears' decision to keep third-string quarterback David Fales inactive seems to indicate the team is comfortable with where Clausen is at on the health front.

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.

Thomas Gafford
The Bears signed long snapper Thomas Gafford to a one-year contract on Wednesday, the organization announced. 

Gafford spent the previous seven games and has appeared in 105 consecutive games. 

Pernell McPhee
McPhee (shoulder) recorded two tackles, including his third sack of the season, and blocked a 27-yard field-goal attempt in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

Through five games, McPhee has been worth every penny of the $40 million that the Bears doled out to him this past March. Along with being the Bears' top pass rusher, McPhee has shown a penchant for making plays that can alter the landscape of a game, as the blocked kick ultimately did with the Bears winning by just a one-point margin.

Alan Ball
Ball (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

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.

Shea McClellin
McClellin left Sunday's win over the Chiefs in the third quarter with a left knee injury and didn't return, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Though the Bears were able to escape Sunday with their second straight win, injuries are beginning to mount down the middle of the defense. Nose tackle Jeremiah Ratliff and safety Antrel Rolle have already missed action this season due to various ailments, and now McClellin could be facing a similar fate. The Bears called on undrafted rookie LaRoy Reynolds to fill in at the right inside linebacker spot, and he'd presumably be in line to start next week's game against the Lions if McClellin is sidelined due to the knee injury.

Deonte Thompson
The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 16 game against the Raiders: running back Bryce Brown, cornerback Ross Cockrell, linebackers Larry Dean and Randell Johnson, tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, wide receiver Deonte Thompson and tight end Chris Gragg (knee).

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.
