Trevathan (knee) could begin the regular season on the physically unable to perform list, which would keep him out for six games, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
Trevathan ruptured the patellar tendon in his right knee during Week 12 last season. At the time of his injury, he ranked second on the team with 66 tackles. Even if he somehow is ready for the regular season, it might be best to take a wait-and-see approach when considering him in IDP league drafts, and if he goes undrafted, he's someone to keep an eye on during in-season waivers should he appear back to his previous form.
Trevathan (knee) will be 'cutting it close' in regard to being ready for the start of training camp, Adam L. Jahns of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Trevathan, who ruptured the patellar tendon in his right knee late last November, has seemingly been questionable for the start of training camp all along. It isn't clear if he remains a candidate to open the season on the PUP list -- which would sideline him for the season's first six weeks -- but since it sounds like he has some sort of chance to be ready for the start of training camp, that's probably not a concern anymore.

It was reported in January that the 27-year-old could potentially start the 2017 season on the PUP list due to the severity of the injury. However, the team remains optimistic they will not have to take that measure, but his status for training camp remains up in the air.
According to general manager Ryan Pace,

Trevathan suffered a ruptured patellar tendon in his right knee during Sunday's loss to the Titans and will miss the rest of this season on injured reserve.
Trevathan currently ranks second on the Bears with 66 tackles (49 solo) and also posted a sack prior to going down Sunday. His injury is a tough blow after signing a lucrative four-year contract back in March, as he'll now become the latest Chicago player with a season-ending ailment to nurse going into the offseason. With him out, Christian Jones figures to see more action at inside linebacker.
