Holtz (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Green Bay. Holtz will sit out a second consecutive game due to this quad injury. He's still searching for his first catch of the season.
Holtz (quadriceps) won't play Sunday against the Raiders. With fellow tight end Jesse James (personal) also ruled out, Jesper Horsted (knee) will slide up to third on the depth chart behind Cole Kmet and Jimmy Graham in Vegas. Holtz -- who hasn't had a pass thrown his way all season -- will look to make his return in Week 6 against the Packers.
Chicago re-signed Holtz on Wednesday. Holtz was an exclusive rights free agent, but he'll remain with Chicago for at least one more season. He suited up for all 16 regular-season games in 2020, seeing the majority of his reps on special teams. He drew only one target across his 87 offensive snaps.
Holtz (shoulder) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Texans. The 27-year-old exited last Sunday's loss to the Lions after fielding one offensive snap, though he was able to participate in a limited capacity throughout this past practice week. Holtz has earned the green light from Chicago's training staff, allowing him to resume his typical backup tight end and special-teams roles as the 5-7 Bears fight to keep fading playoff hopes alive.
Holtz exited Sunday's loss to the Lions with a shoulder injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Holtz wasn't targeted before leaving the game during the second half. The 27-year-old was considered questionable to return but never appeared to retake the field.
