Trevathan recorded 12 tackles in Chicago's 41-9 victory over Buffalo on Sunday.
With the Bills unable to find any success passing the football downfield, they were forced to run a conservative offensive attack, which played right into Trevathan's hands. After averaging six tackles over the first four games of the season, he's posted at least 10 tackles in two of his last three contests, propelling him into consideration as a weekly IDP starter.
Trevathan has recorded at least eight tackles three times this season while adding a pair of sacks, a fumble recovery and an interception. Although he hasn't shown the weekly tackle upside that he has in previous seasons, he's been a consistent IDP performer in 2018.
Trevathan (head/neck) returned to Sunday's game against the Packers.
Trevathan left the game after taking a blow to the head late in the second quarter, but he was able to pass concussion tests and returned after halftime. He seems to handling his usual every-down role in the middle of Chicago's defense.
Trevathan suffered a head injury during Sunday's game against the Packers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
Trevathan suffered the injury after colliding with teammate Bryce Callahan while attempting to make a tackle. It's unclear what sort of injury the linebacker is being evaluated for, but the Bears should update his status again shortly.
