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.
Trevathan recorded 11 tackles in Sunday's defeat to the 49ers.
After missing the last three games with a calf injury, Trevathan didn't miss a beat by posting his second straight game with double digits in the tackle column. He's posted either a sack or at least 10 tackles in each of his last six games, and he's a high-end IDP option when healthy.
Trevathan (calf) practiced fully Thursday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
One day removed from his first practice since Oct. 27, Trevathan progressed from limited to uncapped. Assuming he emerges from the week without a designation, he'll take over one of the Bears' starting spots at inside linebacker, from which he averaged 7.4 tackles per game and accrued two sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery in seven appearances earlier this season.
Trevathan (calf) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The limited session marked Trevathan's first practice in any capacity since Oct. 27, which came ahead of the Bears' Week 8 loss to the Saints. The Bears are hopeful that Trevathan will be upgraded to a full participant in practice by the end of the week, which would clear the way for him to suit up Sunday against the 49ers. Trevathan's return from the calf strain would result in either Nick Kwiatkoski of Christian Jones losing a starting gig at middle linebacker.
Trevathan (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Listed as doubtful heading into the weekend with the calf strain, Trevathan will unsurprisingly be held out of his third consecutive game. Christian Jones and Nick Kwiatkoski will serve as Chicago's starting middle linebackers with Trevathan sidelined.
