  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Not playing in finale

    Mooney (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    Mooney will sit out the season finale after he has been unable to resume practicing in any capacity since experiencing concussion symptoms following the Bears' Week 16 win over the Cardinals. Before missing the team's final two games of the 2023 campaign, Mooney was active for each of the first 15 contests and recorded a 31-414-1 receiving line on 61 targets. The 26-year-old is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason, and while the Bears could look to retain him, Mooney could be pushed down a spot or two on the depth chart after he was one of the NFL's least-productive No. 2 receivers when healthy in 2023.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Still not practicing

    Mooney (concussion) didn't practice Thursday.

    Mooney emerged from a Week 16 win against the Cardinals with a concussion, which hasn't allowed him to practice in the meantime. He's already missed one game as a result of the injury, and coach Matt Eberflus confirmed Wednesday that Mooney still was in the protocol, per Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com. With only one more chance to mix into drills this week, Mooney may be in danger of sitting out Sunday's contest at Green Bay.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Remains in concussion protocol

    Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said Wednesday that Mooney remains in the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

    Mooney sat out Chicago's Week 17 win over the Falcons and remains in the protocol as the Bears prepare to face the Packers in their season finale this Sunday. With Chicago eliminated from playoff contention and Mooney set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, the team has little incentive to rush the wide receiver back into action unless he's able to clear the five-step protocol in advance of the weekend.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Won't play Week 17

    Mooney (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Mooney entered concussion protocol earlier in the week and failed to gain clearance before Sunday's game. If he clears concussion protocol next week, Mooney could be available for Chicago's season finale against the Packers. Otherwise, he'll finish his fourth NFL season with 31 catches for 414 yards and one touchdown on 61 targets.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Sits out another practice

    Mooney (concussion) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

    In the wake of Mooney self-reporting concussion symptoms Monday, he has yet to mix into any drills during Week 17 prep. He has Friday's practice available to him to show any sign of progress through the protocol for head injuries, but another absence likely would imply upcoming inactive status Sunday against the Falcons. If Mooney is out this weekend, Tyler Scott, Equanimeous St. Brown (pectoral), Velus Jones and Trent Taylor would be the candidates for WR reps alongside the Bears' top option DJ Moore.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: No practice reps Wednesday

    Mooney (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.

    Earlier Wednesday, head coach Matt Eberflus revealed that Mooney self-reported concussion symptoms Monday, and the wide receiver has since been placed in the five-step protocol for head injuries, per Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic. If Mooney doesn't resume practicing as at least a limited participant by Friday, he would likely be in danger of missing his first game of the season Sunday versus Atlanta. In such a scenario, Equanimeous St. Brown (pectoral), Tyler Scott and Velus Jones could get more run behind the Bears' top wide receiver, DJ Moore.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: In concussion protocol

    Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said Wednesday that Mooney is in concussion protocol, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Mooney self-reported concussion symptoms Monday and has been in the five-step protocol ever since. The receiver appears set to miss Wednesday's practice as a result, and he could be in danger of sitting out Sunday's game against the Falcons, too. With tight end Cole Kmet (knee) also not practicing Wednesday, Chicago's pass-catching corps is suddenly looking dangerously thin behind top target DJ Moore.
