  • Ravens' Pernell McPhee: Out with torn triceps

    Coach John Harbaugh said McPhee is expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn triceps, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports. McPhee exited Sunday's game against the Seahawks after playing only 12 snaps due to the injury. The 30-year-old should be headed to injured reserve in the near future so the team can clear up a roster spot. Jaylon Ferguson will likely be the main beneficiary at outside linebacker for the Ravens.

  • Ravens' Pernell McPhee: Off to solid start

    McPhee made three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's 59-10 win over the Dolphins. McPhee only played 51 percent of the team's defensive snaps, and he made an impact by dropping Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. The veteran linebacker didn't have a pass-rushing role in Washington's defense last year, so it looks like the Ravens are using him in a different fashion in 2019.

  • Redskins' Pernell McPhee: Signs with Redskins

    McPhee (shoulder) signed a contract with the Redskins on Monday. McPhee was released by the Bears in February after battling chronic knee issues over the past few seasons. The 29-year-old landed on injured reserve in December with a shoulder injury but faced a limited snap count through much of the season due to his knees. The veteran is likely to serve in a rotational role for the Redskins behind starting outside linebackers Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith.

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Another strong performance in Week 4

    McPhee notched a sack and three tackles in Thursday's 35-14 loss to the Packers. Although Aaron Rodgers didn't drop back often in a game that had the Packers playing without their top five offensive tackles, McPhee made the most of his chances by collecting one of two Chicago sacks. With takedowns in back-to-back contests, McPhee is quickly becoming a sneaky IDP option.

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Active for season opener

    McPhee (knee) is active for the Bears' season opener Sunday against the Falcons, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. As was the case for much of last season when he played through injuries, McPhee will likely face a restricted snap count in Week 1 after the knee issue limited him in practices this week. McPhee should see most of his action on passing downs, offering assistance to the Bears' pass rush when outside linebackers Leonard Floyd and Willie Young require a breather.

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Questionable for Sunday

    McPhee (knee) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Falcons. Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Thursday that there was a good chance McPhee would be ready for Sunday's contest, so it's likely the team was just remaining cautious with the linebacker during Friday's session. Head coach John Fox made similar comments Friday, saying he's excited to see the veteran pass rusher play. McPhee may largely be limited to snaps on passing downs, as Leonard Floyd and Willie Young are expected to start at outside linebacker.

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Could be back for OTAs

    McPhee (shoulder) could be available to participate in OTAs next month, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. When the linebacker, who is recovering from surgery on his torn left labrum, was asked if he'll be ready to join the team next month he said, "I don't know. That's up to God." McPhee's two-year stint in Chicago has been riddled with injuries, limiting the linebacker to participating in 23 of 32 games over the past two seasons. The veteran noted that he feels much better at this point than he did last year, when he was recovering from knee injury. He said, "I feel great. I look more sexy. It's definitely a blessing and I can't wait until the season starts...Obviously, last year wasn't a great year. The year before wasn't one. Now hopefully with me losing weight, staying focused, hopefully we can turn things around."

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Ruled out for Sunday

    McPhee (shoulder) did not travel with the team for Sunday's game against Minnesota and he has been ruled out, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN reports. Sunday will mark McPhee's seventh missed contest of the season due to injury. He battled a knee injury early in the season but had been able to play in every game after being activated off the PUP list after Week 6. With Leonard Floyd (concussion) doubtful for Sunday's tilt, the Bears will be short on pass rushing options against the Vikings.

If he's ultimately ruled out, McPhee will end the 2016 campaign with 16 tackles and four sacks across nine games in his second season in Chicago.

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Activated from PUP list

McPhee has completed his rehab from arthroscopic knee surgery in the offseason, and just in time for Thursday's divisional matchup against the banged-up Packers. While the outside linebacker will be available, it's unclear what type of snap count he can handle in his season debut. However, he could get the start on the weak side if Leonard Floyd (calf) misses his third consecutive game.

    McPhee may be running out of time to be available for Week 1, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. McPhee was only able to do side work again on Monday, putting his availability for Week 1 in question as he tries to return from the physically unable to perform list. However, teammate Willie Young added that McPhee is trying to overcome a knee condition that used to be career-ending, though the team has never revealed the actual extent of his injury.

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Listed as doubtful

    McPhee (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Even with McPhee's production tailing off the last few weeks, this is still a huge loss for the inconsistent Chicago defense. He's easily the best player in the team's front seven, but the Bears do at least have solid depth at outside linebacker. Lamarr Houston, Willie Young and Sam Acho are all candidates to take on some of McPhee's snaps.

  • Bears' Pernell McPhee: Questionable to face Broncos

    McPhee (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos. According to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times, McPhee suggested that he should be able to play, after returning to practice on a limited basis Friday morning. Despite missing Sunday's win over the Rams, McPhee has more than lived up to his sizable contract. If he does miss the game, it'll be good news for every member of the Denver offense.
