  • Falcons' Eddie Goldman: Officially lands on exempt list

    The Falcons placed Goldman (undisclosed) on the exempt/left squad list Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

The 29-year-old essentially unretired after walking away for the entire 2022 campaign, though he missed practice Friday while once again considering retirement, and head coach Arthur Smith said Saturday that the defensive tackle will not play for Atlanta in 2023. If this is ultimately the end for Goldman, he will wrap up his career with 175 tackles and 13 sacks over 81 games played for the Bears from 2015 to 2021.

A second-round pick of the Bears in 2015, Goldman totaled 174 tackles and 13 sacks in 81 games over six seasons, all with Chicago.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Downgraded to out

    Goldman (knee) is listed as out for Sunday's contest with the Browns, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. As expected, Goldman's 2021 debut will be delayed again after he didn't practice Friday. Angelo Blackson has played 51 snaps through the first two weeks and should see a similar workload in Week 3 with Goldman inactive.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Inactive for Week 2

    Goldman (knee) is listed as inactive ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Bengals. Goldman missed the season opener and didn't practice throughout the week, so his inactive status isn't a surprise. Angelo Blackson played 22 defensive snaps in Week 1 and will likely be in line for a similar workload with Goldman sidelined once again.

    Goldman (knee) didn't participate at Thursday's practice. Goldman worked as a limited participant Wednesday after sitting out Week 1, but he was unable to string together two straight days on the field. The 27-year-old's participation at Friday's session will help clarify his potential availability for Sunday's matchup with the Bengals.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Doubtful for Week 1

    Goldman (knee) didn't practice Friday and is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Rams, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports. Goldman hasn't been completely ruled out, but the doubtful designation suggests he's likely to sit out the season opener. If Goldman can't go Sunday night, Khyiris Tonga will be tasked with clogging up the interior on Chicago's defensive line.

    Goldman (back) is practicing Monday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. The veteran defensive tackle has missed time due to a back injury recently, but he's progressed enough in his recovery to resume practicing.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Moving to COVID-19 list

    The Bears will place Goldman (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. Goldman's placement on the COVID list could indicate either that he's tested positive for the virus, or that he's been designated a close contact of someone who has. The veteran lineman will need to fully clear all related protocols before being allowed to rejoin teammates at practice.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Ruled out against Chiefs

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Questionable for Sunday

    Goldman (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Goldman suffered the thigh injury during last week's loss to the Eagles but practiced in full Friday, so he has a good chance to play Week 10. Nick Williams would see a heavier workload at nose tackle should Goldman be unable to suit up.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Battling thigh injury

    Goldman (thigh) is listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice. A thigh injury forced Goldman out of this past Sunday's loss to the Eagles, and he's still dealing with the effects. The fourth-year pro still has two practices to get back on the field. Nick Williams, who posted his fifth sack of the season Sunday, stands to benefit the most if Goldman can't play in Week 10's matchup against the Lions.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Gets hurt Sunday

    Goldman (thigh) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles. It's unclear how Goldman picked up the injury, but he's been on the stationary bike and stretching on the sidelines trying to get back into the game. As long as he's sidelined, Nick Williams will likely get the bulk of the nose tackle reps in the game.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Questionable for Week 2

    Goldman (oblique) is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Broncos, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. Goldman was limited in Wednesday's practice and sat out of Thursday's session altogether. The 25-year-old was able to play in 33 defensive snaps (52 percent) in the Bears' season-opening loss to Green Bay, so it's unclear if he sustained the injury in the contest or sometime during the week.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Signs extension with Chicago

    Goldman signed a four-year extension with the Bears on Friday. Goldman is coming off a solid 2017 campaign with the Bears, where he posted a career-high 44 tackles but also had a career-low 1.5 sacks across 15 games. He was set to enter the final year of his rookie deal in 2018, but the nose tackle is now set to remain with the team through 2022.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Notches first sack of 2017 on Sunday

    Goldman posted three tackles along with a sack in Sunday's 29-7 defeat to the Buccaneers. Despite the game being a blowout loss, Jameis Winston still dropped back 30 times to pass, and Goldman was able to record his first sack of the season. Although he struggled to stay healthy during the first two years of his career, should he be able to stay on the field, he has upside as an IDP option as an interior lineman.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Clears concussion protocol

    Goldman (concussion) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is expected to play Sunday against the Falcons. Goldman battled an ankle injury for a good chunk of last season, and it stunted what could've been a breakout season. He posted 18 tackles and 2.5 sacks over six games in 2016, so it's exciting to think what he can do with a full season of work. Keep an eye on this one.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Returns to practice Friday

    Goldman (dehydration) returned to practice Friday, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. Goldman had suffered from dehydration during his conditioning test Wednesday, but after being held out of practice Thursday, he's back on the field. If he can put together a healthy camp, he'll have a chance to post solid sack and tackle numbers as an interior lineman, making him a sleeper candidate in IDP leagues as he enters his third year as a pro.

  • Bears' Eddie Goldman: Strengthening ankle to avoid re-injury

    Goldman is doing extra work to strengthen his ankle this offseason in an effort to avoid another injury, Mark Potash of The Chicago Sun-Times reports. Goldman hurt his ankle in Week 2 and then missed the next six games before returning in Week 10. He then missed out on Week 11 with the same ankle problem but then played the next three games only to land on injured reserve in Week 15 with a repeat injury. The 2015 second-rounder ultimately missed a total of 10 games in 2016, after losing out on three during his rookie season. While it's encouraging that he's going the extra mile to avoid further setbacks, injuries are sometimes a matter of chance and there's no guarantee he'll log his first 16-game season in 2017.
