Bears' Dion Sims: Not suiting up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (illness) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Lions.

Sims rose to the top of the tight end depth chart following Zach Miller's season-ending knee injury, but has been unable to take advantage of the opportunity due to injury concerns of his own. With Sims sitting out his second straight game, look for Adam Shaheen and Daniel Brown to split the bulk of tight end snaps in Week 11. It was Brown that saw more offensive snaps last week against the Packers, but Shaheen had 18 more receiving yards despite one less target.

Bears' Dion Sims: Questionable to face Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (illness) missed another practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Sims hasn't practiced the past two weeks while recovering from an unspecified illness. With Zach Miller (knee) already out for the season, a second straight absence by Sims would leave Adam Shaheen and Daniel Brown to get most of the snaps at tight end. The two split playing time pretty evenly in last week's 23-16 loss to the Packers.

Bears' Dion Sims: Skips practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (illness) didn't practice Wednesday.

According to Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times, Bears head coach John Fox said Sims has been ill for two full weeks at this point. While the tight end has resumed working out, Fox considers Sims "day to day," per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. With two practices remaining this week, Sims' presence at one or both of them would bode well for his chances of playing (and likely starting) Sunday against the Lions.

Bears' Dion Sims: Unavailable for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Sims likely would have been in line to make his first start of the season at tight end with Zach Miller (knee) placed on injured reserve earlier this week, but the illness prevented that from materializing. Sims was unable to practice at all this week and will get a few more days to recuperate before the Bears resume practicing next Wednesday in preparation for a Week 11 matchup with the Lions. Look for Adam Shaheen and Daniel Brown to handle nearly all the offensive snaps at tight end against the Packers.

Bears' Dion Sims: Questionable with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (illness) didn't practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

While it's rare for a player to miss a game due to an illness, Sims' continued absence from practice casts doubt upon his Sunday availability. Coming out of a Week 9 bye, he also missed practice Wednesday and Thursday. With Zach Miller (knee) out for the season, Sims figures to handle a hefty snap share whenever he's healthy enough to do so. Should Sims miss Sunday's game, the Bears will turn to some combination of Adam Shaheen, Daniel Brown and Ben Braunecker.
