Bears' Prince Amukamara: Concludes best season of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara collected three tackles in the Bears' Week 17 win over the Vikings, and he wound up the campaign with 66 tackles, three interceptions and a touchdown.

Amukamara posted his second season with more than one pick, tying his career high with three, while collecting the second-most tackles in any of his eight years in the league. He's signed with the Bears through 2020, and based on his ability to post solid tackle totals, should continue to be an IDP with a solid floor but limited upside.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Comes up big against Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara intercepted a pass while adding six tackles in the Bears' Week 14 win over the Rams.

Amukamara tied his career high with his third interception of the season, and this was just the second time he's picked off more than one pass in any campaign. In addition, he's notched at least five tackles in six straight games, giving him a solid floor and making him a strong weekly IDP option.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Intercepts second pass of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara intercepted a pass while adding eight tackles in the Bears' 34-22 victory over the Lions.

Amukamara easily posted his highest tackle total of the season with eight, but this was the first strong fantasy performance he's had since Week 2 due to the interception. Based on the consistent downside he's shown, he's difficult to trust in weekly lineups.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Practices Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Amukamara aggravated a hamstring injury during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, but he appears to have put the issue behind him. The starting cornerback seems to be trending towards suiting up for Chicago's game against the Patriots in Week 7.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Unlikely to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara aggravated his hamstring injury and is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Amukamara was cleared from the injury report Friday but appeared to aggravate the hamstring injury that cost him Week 4. The game is in the closing stages of the fourth quarter, making a return extremely unlikely.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (hamstring) was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Amukamara returned to full practice participation Friday for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury against the Cardinals in Week 3, so he's expected to be ready for Sunday's tilt. Barring any setbacks, expect Amukamara to start at cornerback across from Kyle Fuller.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Amukamara exited Week 3's win over the Cardinals due to a hamstring injury and was considered day-to-day before being ruled out. Bryce Callahan will serve as Chicago's starting left cornerback as long as Amukamara remains sidelined.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Day-to-day with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Matt Nagy said Monday that Amukamara (hamstring) is day-to-day.

Amukamara was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to the hamstring injury and did not return. It sounds like the Bears are still evaluating the cornerback, so expect another update on Amukamara's status once Chicago releases their first injury report later this week.

September 23, 2018 06:44 PM
Bears' Prince Amukamara: Doubtful to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to a hamstring injury.

Amukamara left the field in the third quarter of Week 3's contest, and Bryce Callahan stepped in as Chicago's starting left cornerback. If Amukamara is unable to return Sunday, expect an update on his health after the game.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (groin) isn't listed on the Bears' injury report Tuesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Amukamara appears ready to roll ahead of Week 1 after missing some time in the preseason due to a groin issue. He's expected to hold down the outside corner spot opposite Kyle Fuller when the team opens the season Sunday night against the Packers.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Inactive for Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (groin) is inactive for Saturday's preseason contest against the Chiefs, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Amukamara recently returned to practice after nursing a groin injury for a portion of training camp. The Bears are holding a long list of contributing players out of their third preseason game, so Amukamara's absence Saturday could very well be for rest and recovery purposes.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Back to work Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (groin) returned to practice in a limited fashion Tuesday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic Chicago reports.

The injury kept Amukamara off the field for two weeks. The 29-year-old won't play in the final preseason contest against the Bills, so getting on the field for Saturday's exhibition game against the Chiefs is important for him to get ready for the regular season. Amukamara will have two more practices and a walkthrough to help determine if he can go.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara will not play in Saturday's preseason contest against the Broncos due to a groin injury, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The origin of Amukamara's groin injury is a bit unclear at this point, but the Bears will play it safe with the health of their starting cornerback Saturday. Bryce Callahan figures to start at corner opposite Kyle Fuller against the Broncos, while Amukamara might be able to return in Week 3 of the preseason against the Chiefs.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Solidified in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara is locked into a starting role at cornerback opposite Kyle Fuller and is looking to build on a solid first season with the Bears, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Amukamara, who re-signed with Chicago on a three-year, $27 million deal, boldly proclaimed his individual goal of intercepting 10 passes, but he would do well to match the career-high three picks he tallied in 2014. Barring a surge in turnover production, Amukamara doesn't project as a major IDP asset from the defensive backfield. After posting 85 tackles in 2013, Amukamara has finished with no more than 63 in any of his last four seasons.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Expected to return to Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara is in line to re-sign with the Bears, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Nothing is certain yet, the the expectation is Amukamara will be wearing blue and orange in 2018. In his seventh pro season, Amukamara made 48 tackles (45 solo) and broke up seven passes in 14 games, but he failed to make an interception for the second straight year.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Set to hit free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara tallied 48 tackles along with seven passes defensed in 14 games.

Amukamara has posted at least 46 tackles in each of the last six seasons, but he hasn't picked off a pass in either of the last two campaigns. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and he'll likely be playing for his fourth team in four years while being a middling IDP option at cornerback.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (ankle) was a full participant at the Bears' Thursday practice, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM reports.

Amukamara has been dealing with the ankle injury since late August, so it's good to see him put a full practice in. The oft-injured cornerback looks to be on track to make his season debut against Antonio Brown and the Steelers on Sunday.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Held out in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (ankle) is inactive Sunday for the Bears' Week 2 game against the Buccaneers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

The absence of their top corner is a major blow to a Bears defense that was already set to have its hands full with containing Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and a Tampa Bay receiving unit ripe with high-level talent. Amukamara was at least able to practice three times in a limited capacity this week, so he could have a more realistic shot at playing in the Bears' Week 3 matchup with the Steelers.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Ankle injury still lingering
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's matchup with Tampa Bay, Zach Zaidman of Bears All Access reports.

Amukamara is in danger of missing his second consecutive game while playing for his new team. The Bears defense was able to contain Matt Ryan and the Falcons to 23 points in Week 1, but Amukamara's presence would help shore up Chicago's secondary against DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans of the Bucs.

Bears' Prince Amukamara: Sidelined for season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amukamara (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Amukamara carried a doubtful designation heading into the weekend, so it was fully expected that he'd be sidelined for the season opener. Without the services of their top cover corner, the Bears will be forced to lean heavily on the likes of Marcus Cooper, Kyle Fuller and Bryce Callahan to shadow Julio Jones, which could translate to a big day for the Falcons' superstar wideout.
