  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Won't play Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    McPhee (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals. McPhee was unable to practice this week due to the shoulder issue, so he never had a great shot at playing Sunday. His absence should leave more snaps available for fellow edge rushers Sam Acho, Lamarr Houston and Howard Jones.

  • McPhee was limited to one defensive series in Sunday's loss to the 49ers before exiting with what the Bears labeled as a shoulder injury, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. There was some fear that McPhee may have sustained a concussion after taking a blow to the upper body, but it appears that his shoulder absorbed the brunt of the contact. McPhee has mostly been bothered by knee issues off and on since signing a five-year contract with the Bears in March 2015, and now that he's dealing with an additional concern, it may make sense for the team to hold him out or at least limit his reps during the final four games of the season now that Chicago is officially eliminated from playoff contention.

  • McPhee is being evaluated for a possible head injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. McPhee took a blow to the head and will be out if it's determined that he suffered a concussion. Sam Acho and Lamarr Houston will be the team's only active outside linebackers if McPhee is unable to return.

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Active Week 12
    By RotoWire Staff

    McPhee (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. McPhee was a late addition to the injury report after he practiced in full Wednesday and Thursday, but was held out entirely Friday due to his knee injury. The issue doesn't appear to be too severe since he's playing. Look for Isaiah Irving to see a slight uptick in snaps if McPhee is limited at all during Sunday's contest.

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Posts another sack
    By RotoWire Staff

    McPhee tallied a sack and a tackle in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Panthers. McPhee was able to record a sack for the fourth time in the five games he's played this season. Despite averaging less than two tackles per contest, he's shown excellent ability to rush the passer, and although he has a worrisome floor, he's proven to be a strong IDP option while enjoying a healthy start to the season.
