Trevathan (hamstring) recorded one tackle (a solo) in his return to game action Saturday.
Trevathan had been bothered by a hamstring issue for much of training camp, but that appears to be behind him as he and the Bears are gearing up for Week 3 of the preseason, with the regular season just around the corner. He should resume his duties as a starting inside linebacker for Chicago and could possess fantasy relevance as an IDP coming off an 89-tackle season while only playing 12 games.
Trevathan (hamstring) has been a limited participant in training camp, Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun Times reports.
Trevathan is working his way back from a hamstring that forced him to miss 10 consecutive practices in July. There's no concern over the linebacker's availability for the regular season, and Trevethan could even be back at some point in the preseason.
Trevathan didn't practice Friday due to a hamstring injury, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
In the first official session of Bears training camp, the oft-injured Trevathan didn't make an appearance. On the bright side, coach Matt Nagy said that the team doesn't "need to rush" any of its injured players back to the fold, and "we're not going to." While the new regime seems to be taking a cautious approach with any player whose health is compromised, those invested in Trevathan's IDP prospects should monitor his situation closely as he attempts to back up his 89 tackles in 12 games from a season ago.
Trevathan recorded seven tackles in the Week 17 loss to the VIkings to end the season with 89 tackles, two sacks, an interception and a forced fumble in 12 games.
Trevathan finished the season somewhat slowly, as he averaged six tackles over the last three games, but he continued to show that he can post elite IDP numbers by collecting double-digit stops on five occasions. He's signed through the 2019 season, and as long as he remains healthy, he'll still an upper-echelon IDP based on his ability to pile up big tackle numbers.
Even though the Bengals ran the ball just 13 times in this game, Trevathan was making plays all over the field as he led the Bears in tackles. He's posted double digits in tackles five times over his last seven starts, and when healthy, he's been an elite fantasy option.
