  • 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.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Back for Week 16

    Bush (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

    The 27-year-old was sidelined for last week's matchup with the Vikings due to the foot injury, but he'll be back on the field this weekend. Cornerbacks Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) and Buster Skrine (concussion) are unavailable, so Bush could have an increased role in the secondary Sunday.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Won't play Sunday

    Bush (foot) won't suit up in Sunday's divisional game against Minnesota.

    The Bears' secondary will be missing some key pieces in the contest, as along with Bush, Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) and Buster Skrine (concussion) have also been ruled out. With Bush sidelined, back up strong safety duties will shift to Deandre Houston-Carson behind starter Tashaun Gipson.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Back with team Thursday

    The Bears activated Bush from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

    Bush came into close contact with someone who had tested positive for the virus, but he appears to have satisfied requirements for clearance. Bush has appeared in six games this season, recording four tackles and an interception, so expect him to return to his usual depth safety role for Monday's game against the Vikings.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Lands on COVID-19 list

    Bush was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    The 27-year-old apparently hasn't tested positive for the virus, but he was in close contact with an infected individual away from the team. Bush will at least be sidelined for Sunday's game at Tennessee while he works through the COVID-19 protocols.

  • Bears' Deon Bush: Back in action Monday

    Bush (hamstring) is active for Monday's game versus the Rams.

    Bush missed the last two games but is back in the fold after practicing fully Saturday. The fifth-year safety out of Miami (Fla.) typically only plays on defense in clear passing situations, and with starting safeties Tashaun Gipson and Eddie Jackson healthy, Bush likely will remain in a reserve role Monday.
