  • Jaguars' Aaron Lynch: Rejoins active roster

    Lynch was reinstated from the exempt/commissioner permission list to the active roster Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The 27-year-old announced his retirement in August but was reinstated from the reserve/retirement list last week, yet he wasn't yet on the active roster due to an exemption. Lynch had six tackles and two sacks in 13 games for the Bears in 2019 and should fill a rotational role at defensive end for the Jaguars.

  • Jaguars' Aaron Lynch: Back from retirement

    The Jaguars reinstated Lynch from the reserve/retirement list Wednesday.

    Lynch signed with the Jaguars this offseason but opted to retire before ever putting on the team's jersey.

  • Jaguars' Aaron Lynch: Reaches deal with Jags

    Lynch signed a contract with the Jaguars on Tuesday.

    Lynch, who has experience playing at both defensive end and outside linebacker, is expected to slot in on the line as part of Jacksonville's 4-3 base scheme. He'll provide some experienced depth on the edge after compiling 20 sacks across 105 career games in six seasons between the 49ers and Bears.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Absent from injury report

    Lynch wasn't listed on Chicago's injury report Monday.

    Lynch dealt with an elbow injury over the offseason and struggled with a shoulder issue in early August, but he's seemingly ready for Week 1 now. The 26-year-old will likely see a rotational role in Chicago's linebacking corps.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Dealing with shoulder injury

    Lynch missed Sunday's practice with a shoulder injury, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

    It's unclear when Lynch sustained the injury, although he didn't play in Thursday's preseason opener against Carolina and was unable to practice Saturday. It's also unknown how severe the injury is. Kylie Fitts and James Vaughters will likely take the additional reps at outside linebacker in practice as long as Lynch is sidelined.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Participating in offseason program

    Lynch (elbow) participated in June minicamp, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    Lynch re-signed with Chicago on April 1 after missing the final three games of 2018 due to a sprained right elbow. The injury seems to be a thing of the past, as the 26-year-old's participation over the offseason bodes well. Lynch seems poised for a rotational role behind Leonard Floyd this season.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Re-signs with Chicago

    Lynch (elbow) signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Monday.

    Lynch appeared in 13 games with the Bears last season, including three starts, while notching 16 tackles, three sacks and one interception. The 26-year-old linebacker appears primed for a similar rotational role behind Leonard Floyd in 2019. Lynch missed the final three games of 2018 due to a sprained right elbow but is expected to make a full offseason recovery without undergoing surgery.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Won't require surgery

    Lynch (elbow) said he won't require offseason surgery, Chris Emma of 670 The Score Chicago reports.

    Lynch sprained his right elbow in mid-December and ultimately sat out the final three games of the Bears' season, including the team's playoff loss to Philadelphia. However, the notion that Lynch won't require surgery suggests the linebacker isn't dealing with a long-term injury. That's good news for Lynch, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Records three sacks

    Lynch (elbow) had 16 tackles (13 solo), three sacks and an interception over 13 games in 2018.

    Lynch signed a one-year deal with the Bears last March, and missed the final two games of the regular season and the wild-card loss to the Eagles due to the elbow sprain. The 25-year-old seems as though he should be ready for Organized Team Activities in the spring, but which team that is with remains to be seen.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Listed as doubtful

    Lynch (elbow) is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's wild-card game against the Eagles.

    Lynch is nursing a sprained right elbow, the severity of which caused him to miss Chicago's final two regular-season games. The depth linebacker appears to be trending towards sitting out versus the Eagles, in which case James Vaughters could be called upon to take rotational snaps.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Held out of Wednesday's session

    Lynch (elbow) didn't practice Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Lynch missed the final two regular-season contests with a sprained right elbow and is now in jeopardy of sitting out Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Eagles. What the reserve linebacker is able to do over the next two days of practice will likely determine his availability for the weekend.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Posts three sacks in 2018

    Lynch (elbow) ended the 2018 season with 16 tackles and three sacks on 354 snaps over 13 games.

    In limited action, Lynch showed why the Bears brought him in this season as a pass rusher by posting a sack for every 118 snaps. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but unless he gets a starting role, he won't be a player to target in IDP leagues.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Ruled out Sunday

    Lynch (elbow) was downgraded from doubtful to out for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

    Lynch did not travel with the team to Minnesota as he will unsurprisingly sit out the regular season finale. The 25-year-old will have at least one more week to recover from the elbow sprain with the Bears still attempting to improve their playoff seeding.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: On track to miss season finale

    Lynch (elbow) is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Lunch sat out last week's win over the 49ers due to an elbow sprain, and is trending towards remaining sidelined Week 17. Though a first-round bye is on the line this weekend in Minnesota, the Bears are likely to focus on getting Lynch healthy for the playoffs.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Doubtful for Week 16

    Lynch (elbow) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

    Lynch hasn't practiced in any capacity this week, so it's unlikely he'll be available Sunday while he nurses a sprained elbow. The outside linebacker hasn't been much of an IDP asset this season with 16 stops, three sacks and an interception in 13 games.

  • Bears' Aaron Lynch: Nursing elbow injury

    Lynch (elbow) didn't practice Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Lynch was forced out of Sunday's win over the Packers after suffering a sprained elbow. If the 25-year-old is unable to rally in time to play Week 16 against the 49ers, Isaiah Irving and Kylie Fitts might see added reps as rotational edge rushers.
