Top Deon Bush News

  • Chiefs' Deon Bush: Linking up with Chiefs

    Bush and Kansas City agreed to terms on a one-year contract Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Bush is coming off a productive 2021 campaign, having notched a career-high 40 tackles (31 solo) to go with nine pass breakups and two interceptions across 14 appearances with Chicago. The 28-year-old, who also boasts plenty of special-teams experience, now looks in line to fill a depth role in Kansas City.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Productive in finale

    Bush notched four stops in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 40 tackles, two interceptions and five passes defensed.

    Bush had posted a total of 27 tackles over the previous four seasons, making this the most productive season of his career while he backed up teammate Eddie Jackson. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and if he can find a more prominent role, his IDP value could rise quickly.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Picks off pass

    Bush intercepted a pass and posted three tackles in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday.

    Bush notched his second interception over the last three weeks, but with two or fewer tackles in six of his last nine games, he'll be a risky IDP option in Week 18 against the Vikings.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Activated from IR

    Bush (quadriceps) was activated from injured reserve by the Bears on Saturday.

    Bush sustained a quad injury in Week 6 but will rejoin the active roster after spending the minimum amount of time on IR. He'll likely reclaim a backup role for Chicago.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Returns to practice

    Bush (quadriceps) will return to practice Monday.

    Bush has been on injured reserve since mid-October, but he'll have 21 days to return to the active roster now that he's been designated to return. A better idea of his timetable could come into focus based on his status in practice this week.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Lands on injured reserve

    Bush (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Bush picked up the quadriceps injury during Sunday's loss to Green Bay, and he'll now be sidelined for at least the next three contests. Deandre Houston-Carson could step in as Chicago's third safety in his absence.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Doubtful to return Sunday

    Bush (quadriceps) may not return Sunday against Green Bay, according to Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago.

    It's unclear when Bush suffered his injury, and it remains to be seen if he'll be able to get back on the field. If he doesn't return, then Marqui Christian might play most of his snaps.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Productive vs. Detroit

    Bush notched nine tackles (six solo) during Sunday's divisional win over the Lions.

    Bush managed a season-high number of stops Week 4, in what was his second consecutive game handling 100 percent of defensive snaps. The veteran safety is worth fantasy consideration in IDP formats as long as Tashaun Gipson (hamstring) remains sidelined.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Full speed ahead

    Bush (shoulder) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

    Bush suffered a stinger in the preseason finale against the Titans. With 12 days of rest under his belt, Bush has been cleared for the season opener against the Rams. The 28-year-old typically sticks to special teams, as he has played fewer than 158 defensive snaps in each of the last four seasons.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Suffers stinger Saturday

    Bush (neck) suffered a stinger during Saturday's preseason contest against the Titans, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Bush was able to jog off the field after injuring his neck during Saturday's preseason finale. The 27-year-old recorded 65 defensive snaps for the Bears last year, but he mostly contributed on special teams. Bush is expected to handle the same role in 2021.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Staying in Chicago

    Bush re-signed Wednesday with the Bears on a one-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Bush tested free agency but ultimately decided to stick with the team that selected him in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The 27-year-old mostly contributed on special teams in 2020, though he recorded two pass breakups and an interception over 65 defensive snaps. Bush should handle a similar role in 2021.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Without limitations Thursday

    Bush (foot) logged a full practice session Thursday.

    Bush was unable to play in Chicago's regular-season finale versus the Packers, but it appears he's set to make a return to the field with the Bears punching a postseason ticket. Most of the 27-year-old's involvement has come via special teams, as he's averaged 17.5 snaps per game in that department compared to just 21 combined defensive snaps over his past eight appearances.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Back at practice

    Bush (foot) participated at Wednesday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    After missing Sunday's loss to the Packers, Bush was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's unclear whether the backup safety will get up to speed to join the active squad for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Saints.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Won't play Week 17

    Bush (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    Bush's foot injury held him out Week 15 for a matchup against Minnesota, but he was able to return last Sunday during a winning effort in Jacksonville. The backup safety provided limited participation during Friday's session after sitting out the preceding two practices, but his condition in pregame warmups seemingly was not favorable enough to roll him out in Week 17.
