  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Comes off PUP list

    Chicago activated Smith from the active/PUP list Wednesday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. The star linebacker has been holding out of training camp and recently requested a trade due to dissatisfaction with his contract situation, and he plans to continue holding out despite being activated, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. It's not clear if the Bears intend to offer him the long-term contract he's seeking or cut ties in a potential blockbuster trade, but Smith should be a top-tier IDP option as long as he plays somewhere this season.

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Requesting trade out of Chicago

    Smith has requested a trade, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Smith wrote a lengthy note that seemingly leaves the door open for him to remain with Chicago, though he makes it clear the team hasn't yet come close to offering him the contract he wants. The 25-year-old inside linebacker is the best player on the Bears' defense and a top IDP option, coming off a 2021 season which saw him record 163 tackles, three sacks and an interception. The eighth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft has been holding out of training camp, hoping to sign a long-term extension and avoid playing out 2022 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract.

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Placed on PUP list

    Smith (undisclosed) was placed on the active/PUP list Wednesday. Smith remains in the middle of contract negotiations with the Bears, which likely explains his addition to the PUP list. He had said Monday that he did not plan to report to training camp this week, and he didn't. The organization will likely come to terms with Smith at some point on a new contract and he will return to the team ahead of the 2022 campaign. The linebacker produced a career-high 163 tackles last season while also adding three sacks, three pass deflections and an interception that he returned for a touchdown.

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Holding out of training camp

    Smith doesn't plan to participate in training camp when veterans report Tuesday due to discontent with his contract situation, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Smith was sixth in the NFL in tackles in 2020 (139) and fifth in 2021 (163), so his case that he's earned a contract extension is a strong one. The Bears have oodles of cap space after trading Khalil Mack to the Chargers this offseason, so they should be able to work something out with one of the league's best on-ball linebackers. Provided his holdout doesn't extend into the regular season, Smith will be one of football's very best IDP options in 2022.

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Tallies nine stops

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Listed as questionable

    Smith (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's matchup against the Vikings. Smith was a full participant in Saturday's practice after previously being limited throughout the week. That's certainly a good sign for fantasy managers, but it's still worth confirming his status ahead of the 8:15 pm ET kickoff. Christian Jones would see a substantial jump in playing time if Smith was eventually ruled inactive.

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Ready to face Cardinals

    Smith (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Smith appeared to be in jeopardy for the game after his only practice activity during the week was a limited session Friday. However, he'll be ready to suit up, and his presence will provide a big boost to the middle of the Bears defense. Prior to suffering the injury in Week 12, Smith had been on the field 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps and logged double-digit tackles on eight occasions.

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Returns to practice

    Smith (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. Smith had been limited by a groin injury for a week and a half, and the issue forced him to miss Saturday's preseason opener against the Dolphins.

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Out for preseason opener

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Out for wild-card game

    Smith (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card game against the Saints, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The third-year linebacker stacked up a whopping 139 tackles over 16 games this year, and he's been notably strong in coverage as well, adding seven pass breakups and two interceptions. Josh Woods (toe), who is listed as questionable, will step in for Smith if he's active. Otherwise, Joel Iyiegbuniwe looks like the next man up.
