The Bears released Amukamara on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Amukamara started 42 games the past three years in Chicago, averaging 55.7 tackles, 9.7 pass defenses and one interception per season. He arguably took a step back in 2019, but he still finished 41st among 113 qualified cornerbacks in PFF's grading. Amukamara will turn 31 in June and should be able to find another starting job.
Amukamara was active but failed to record a tackle in the Bears' 21-19 win over the Vikings in Week 17, and he ended the season with 53 tackles over 14 games.
Amukamara has typically averaged about four tackles per game over most of his nine-year career, but he's failed to pick off a pass in three of his last four seasons. He'll enter the last year of his deal with the Bears in 2020, and he'll likely continue to be a low-upside IDP option.
Amukamara (hamstring) is active for Sunday's divisional contest against the Vikings.
Amukamara initially was listed as questionable for Sunday's regular-season finale, but he's managed to shed his hamstring injury in time to take the field. The veteran cornerback is set to draw his usual start across from Kyle Fuller in Week 17.
Amukamara (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional contest against the Vikings.
Amukamara has logged back-to-back limited practice sessions. If the starting cornerback were forced to miss Sunday's season finale, Kevin Toliver and Buster Skrine would be candidates to handle expanded roles on defense.
Amukamara (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Amukamara practiced in full Wednesday, so Thursday's limited session represents a step in the wrong direction. Still, there's not yet any reason to consider him in danger of missing Sunday's divisional tilt against the Vikings. If he's able to practice without restrictions Friday, it'll put any concerns about the starting cornerback's availability to rest.
Amukamara (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Amukamara's performance in coverage has taken a hit this year, as he's allowed 9.4 yards per target compared to 6.8 last season. The Bears will need him to up his game on the big stage, as the Chiefs enter with the third-ranked passing offense (291.4 yards per game).
Amukamara (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Amukamara appeared recovered from the hamstring injury after practicing as a full participant Wednesday, but he was downgraded to limited participation the last two days. The 30-year-old's status for Sunday's contest remains up in the air.
Amukamara (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
After missing Week 14's win over the Cowboys with a hamstring issue, Amukamara is all systems go moving forward. The 30-year-old cornerback has allowed 9.4 yards per target and two total touchdowns this season, but he'll look to tighten up his coverage and help keep the Bears' playoff hopes alive with a win over the Packers on Sunday.
Amukamara (hamstring) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Cowboys.
Amukamara was initially listed as doubtful for Thursday's contest, so his lack of availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. In the veteran cornerback's stead, Buster Skrine stands to move to the outside while Duke Shelley and Kevin Toliver handle slot duties as a rotation.
Amukamara is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game versus Dallas due to a hamstring injury.
Amukamara's absence from Wednesday's walkthrough suggests he will miss Thursday's contest, but his doubtful label means there exists a small chance that he'll suit up. Assuming Amukamara won't play, expect Buster Skrine to move outside to take his place, while the combination of Duke Shelley and Kevin Toliver handles slot duties.
Amukamara has a hamstring injury and didn't practice Monday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
Amukamara missed only one defensive snap during last Thursday's win over the Lions, but he apparently picked up the hamstring injury at some point. The 30-year-old has missed only a handful of snaps all season for the Bears, and they can ill afford to be without him when going up against a talent-laden Cowboys offense Thursday.
Amukamara recorded five tackles in Chicago's 20-13 victory over the Lions on Sunday.
This was the third time all season that Amukamara posted at least five tackles, and he's averaging four stops on the season. However, he's yet to record an interception, making him a low-upside fantasy option.
Amukamara was held out of Chicago's victory over the Colts on Saturday.
Going into last season, Amukamara had seven interceptions over his past seven years, but once the Bears traded for Khalil Mack, the pass rush became devastating, and Amukamara matched his career high with three picks. In addition to the sacks, he posted a very solid 66 tackles, so even as he enters his age-30 season, and though he's not an elite IDP, he should post another strong season.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
