  • Jesper Horsted: Gets let go

    Horsted (undisclosed) was waived from the reserve/PUP list with an injury settlement Friday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

    Horsted was waived Wednesday after a failed physical, then reverted to the PUP list after going unclaimed. Over the past three years, he's appeared in a total of 13 games for the Bears, catching 10 of 13 targets for 108 years and three touchdowns. He'll now look to get healthy and earn another shot within the NFL.

    The Bears waived Horsted (undisclosed) with a failed physical designation Wednesday.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: Inks tender with Bears

    Horstead signed a one-year contract as an exclusive-rights free agent with the Bears on Tuesday, Brendan Sugrue of USA Today reports.

    Horsted was tendered by Chicago back in March, and he will now officially return to the team. The depth tight end mostly contributed on special teams last season, handling just six offensive snaps in seven appearances.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: Tendered one-year deal

    Horsted was tendered a one-year contract by the Bears on Tuesday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    Horsted appeared in seven games for the Bears last season, seeing just six offensive snaps, but he caught two of his three targets for 21 yards and two touchdowns. The 25 year-old has spent two seasons with the Bears after going undrafted out of Princeton. With fellow tight ends Jimmy Graham and Jesse James set to become free agents, Horsted has an opportunity to earn a larger role next season.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: Moves to injured reserve

    Chicago placed Horsted on injured reserve Wednesday with an unspecified injury.

    Horsted was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, but he's apparently still dealing with an unrelated issue. The depth tight end appeared in seven games during 2021 and caught two passes for 21 yards, both of which went for touchdowns.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: Removed from COVID-19 list

    The Bears activated Horsted (illness) off the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    Horstead tested positive for the virus and has been sidelined since Dec. 22. The backup tight end has yet to play over two offensive snaps in a game this season, so his return to the active roster shouldn't impact the Bears' offensive game plan.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: Lands on COVID-19 list

    Horsted (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday after testing positive for the virus, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Horsted, who caught a 19-yard touchdown on the last play of Monday's loss to the Vikings, is the latest Bears player to land in the COVID-19 protocol. Jesse James is also on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but Chicago still has Cole Kmet, Jimmy Graham and J.P. Holtz as its available options at tight end.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: Posts second touchdown of season

    Horsted caught a 19-yard touchdown pass in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Vikings on Monday.

    With the game out of hand and the clock winding down, the Bears had many of their backups on the field, which led to Horsted catching a touchdown pass on his only target as time expired. He's certainly been efficient this year, as he's caught two of his three targets, with both of his receptions coming in the end zone. It's unlikely he'll have enough of a role in the offense to be considered in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: Healthy scratch for Week 11

    Horstead (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest with the Ravens.

    Horstead has mostly operated on special teams this year, so his absence shouldn't affect the Bears' offensive rotations. J.P. Holtz will likely fill in for Horstead on special teams, while Jesse James operates as the backup to Cole Kmet and Jimmy Graham.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: Targeted once in loss

    Horsted failed to catch his lone target in the Bears' 38-3 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    Aside from a two-yard touchdown reception two weeks ago, Horsted doesn't have another catch on the year, and unless he moves up the Chicago depth chart, it's unlikely he'll have much fantasy value.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: First reception since 2019

    Horsted caught a two-yard touchdown pass in the Bears' 20-9 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

    Horsted functioned as the Bears' third tight end with Jesse James (personal) and J.P. Holtz (quadriceps) sitting this game out. It's unlikely that Horsted will see more than a handful of targets this season unless his situation changes drastically.

  • Bears' Jesper Horsted: Active in Week 5

    Horsted (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Horsted was questionable for the contest with a knee injury even after logging full practices throughout the week. Typically buried on the depth chart, Horsted will serve as the team's third tight end with both Jesse James (personal) and J.P. Holtz (quadriceps) ruled out.
