  • Falcons' Germain Ifedi: Signs one-year deal with Atlanta

    Ifedi signed a one-year contract with Atlanta on Wednesday, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Ifedi started all 16 games for Chicago in 2020 -- six at right tackle and 10 at right guard -- but he suffered a knee injury in Week 5 last season and wasn't activated until late December. The versatile 27-year-old figures to provide depth to Atlanta's offensive line during the 2022 campaign.

    Ifedi (knee) was activated from injured reserve Monday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

  • Bears' Germain Ifedi: Designated to return

    Ifedi (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Thursday, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Ifedi has missed the last eight games with a knee injury, but he'll have a chance to return Monday against the Vikings. Larry Borom and Elijah Wilkinson are both on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so Ifedi would likely play a key role on the offensive line if he's cleared to return this week.

  • Bears' Germain Ifedi: Reverts to IR

    Ifedi (knee) reverted to injured reserve from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    Ifedi landed on injured reserve in mid-October with the knee injury, but he moved to the COVID-19 list at the end of the month. He's now cleared the necessary protocols and is back on IR, and it's unclear how much longer he's expected to be sidelined.

  • Bears' Germain Ifedi: Lands on COVID-19 list

    The Bears placed Ifedi (knee) on the COVID-19 list Friday.

    Ifedi was placed on injured reserve Oct. 13, but he now will also have to clear COVID-19 protocols before he is able to make his return to the field. Elijah Wilkinson was removed from the COVID-19 list Friday, so if he is active for Sunday's contest against the 49ers, then he will likely draw the start at right tackle.

  • Bears' Germain Ifedi: Lands on IR

    The Bears placed Ifedi (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Ifedi hurt his knee during Sunday's contest against the Raiders and was unable to return. The 27-year-old offensive lineman will be sidelined for at least three weeks with the move to IR, but Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago relays that the knee issue won't end Ifedi's season. Elijah Wilkinson came off the bench to replace Ifedi on Sunday and is projected to start at right tackle beginning with the Bears' Week 6 matchup with the Packers.

  • Bears' Germain Ifedi: Not returning Sunday

    Ifedi (knee) won't return Sunday against the Chargers.

    As expected, Ifedi has been ruled out for the remainder of the game, which should hurt the Bears' depth on the offensive line. Elijah Wilkinson and Lachavious Simmons are in line to see additional snaps at right tackle as his replacements.

  • Bears' Germain Ifedi: Suffers knee injury

    Ifedi (knee) is questionable to return Sunday against the Raiders, according to Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic.

  • Bears' Germain Ifedi: Placed on PUP list

    The Bears placed Ifedi on the PUP list Wednesday due to a hip flexor injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    After starting all 16 games for the Bears in 2020, the 27-year-old right tackle inked a one-year contract extension during the offseason. He should be in the driver's seat to open 2021 in a starting role if the hip injury doesn't keep him sidelined for too long.
