Until Ebner finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • Trestan Ebner: Reaches injury settlement

    Ebner (concussion) was waived by the Bears with an injury settlement Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Ebner was in danger of missing the entire 2023 season before coming to terms with Chicago on an injury settlement. The 2022 sixth-round pick will now be free to play again this season once he clears the league's concusssion protocol.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: Reverts to IR

    Ebner (concussion) reverted to Chicago's injured reserve Wednesday, per the NFL's transaction log. Ebner is dealing with a concussion, and barring an injury settlement, he's now been ruled out for the entire 2023 season. The 2022 sixth-round pick played in all 17 games for the Bears as a rookie.

  • Trestan Ebner: Gets let go

    Ebner (concussion) was waived by the Bears with an injury designation Tuesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Ebner was likely on the bubble coming into camp, but his unfortunate entrance into concussion protocols after the team's first preseason contest was certainly a setback for the team's 2022 sixth-round selection. Assuming he clears waivers, he'll revert to injured reserve.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: Expected to be on roster bubble

    Ebner appears to be in direct competition with Travis Homer for the Bears' No. 4 running back role, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. Despite Ebner having some nice runs during camp while also bringing value on special teams, he may face an uphill battle for a roster spot against Homer. With Homer being counted on as a key special teamer, Ebner may need to overcome the odds to make the Week 1 roster.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: Little production in loss

    Ebner failed to catch his long pass target in the Bears' 25-20 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. Ebner did recover a Chicago fumble, which helped his team, but he likely didn't benefit many fantasy managers. With Khalil Herbert (hip) nearing a return, the former will likely play the majority of his snaps on special teams, giving him minimal fantasy value.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: Next man up sans Herbert

    Ebner will step into the No. 2 running back role after the Bears placed Khalil Herbert (hip) on injured reserve Tuesday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. When David Montgomery was sidelined for two games earlier in the season, Ebner operated behind Hebert and rushed 13 times for 43 yards while securing two of three targets for eight yards across Weeks 3 and 4. The rookie sixth-round pick could reclaim a similar workload now that Herbert is due to miss at least the Bears' next four games. Montgomery has recorded more than 15 rushing attempts just once this season, so there's certainly room for Ebner to carve out a useful role for fantasy purposes.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: Negative yardage

    Ebner rushed twice but lost five yards in the Bears' 49-29 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. Ebener had his opportunities when the game was out of hand. When David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert are healthy, he sees very few snaps when the games are competitive. Unless his role changes, he doesn't see enough work to consistently help most fantasy teams.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: Steps into prominent role

    Ebner rushed seven times for 23 yards in the Bears' 23-20 win over the Texans on Sunday. Ebner saw second-string running back duties when David Montgomery left the game with an ankle injury. Despite profiling as a strong receiving back, with Justin Fields throwing just 17 passes, Ebner had one target. If Montgomery misses time, Ebner will likely resume the the No. 2 role, giving him increased fantasy value.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: Sticks on roster

    Ebner (ankle) is one of three running backs on Chicago's initial 53-man roster, Larry Mayer of reports. It's an excellent sign for the rookie sixth-round pick, both in terms of his standing with the team and his recent ankle injury. Ebner doesn't figure to have much of a role on offense early in the season behind David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert, but the ankle won't necessarily be a limiting factor.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: May sit out Saturday

    Ebner (ankle) missed Thursday's practice, making it unlikely he plays Saturday against the Browns, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports. Ebner injured his ankle in the Bears' last game against the Seahawks and hasn't practiced since. He had been battling with Darrynton Evans for the No. 3 running back role behind David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. If he sits out, he'll have two weeks to get ready for the regular-season opener.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: Shines with reserves

    Ebner rushed six times for 31 yards and caught his only target for a 12-yard touchdown in the Bears' 19-14 win over the Chiefs on Sunday. Ebner ran a pass route out of the backfield, resulting in a scoring pass from backup quarterback Trevor Siemian. In addition, Ebner was the only Chicago running back to average more than 3.7 yards per carry, though he had his production against the Kansas City backups. Regardless, it was a solid professional debut, as he tries to win the No. 3 running back role behind David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert.

  • Bears' Trestan Ebner: Headed north to Chicago

    The Bears selected Ebner in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 203rd overall. James Cook didn't do anything at Georgia that Ebner failed to do at Baylor -- both are pass-catching specialist running backs -- and Ebner even has better size-adjusted speed with a 4.43-second 40 at 5-foot-11, 206 pounds (Cook was credited with a 4.42 at 199 pounds), yet Ebner goes here four rounds later. Ebner is a natural pass catcher to the point that he can actually line up at wide receiver rather than just catch passes out of the backfield, and the Bears are notably short on proven pass catchers. Ebner is no doubt a long shot to provide fantasy value -- he needs to worry about making the team first -- but there is a chance that the Bears need him to catch a surprisingly high number of passes early in his career.
