Amos intercepted a pass while adding a sack and seven tackles in Chicago's Week 9 win over the Bills.
After performing as a solid IDP in each of the last two seasons, Amos had averaged fewer than five tackles without a single sack or interception before this week's eruption. Unless he builds upon this performance in the near future, he's lacked the upside to be a reliable weekly lineup option.
Amos posted a season-high 11 tackles in the Week 17 loss to the Vikings to end the season with 69 tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception return for a touchdown in 13 games.
Amos started the season as a special-teamer, but as injuries struck the Bears' secondary he was thrust into a starting role in Week 4. He quickly became an excellent IDP performer, as he collected at least six tackles in all but one of his 10 starts, and became valuable enough to the team that he was removed from special teams in the last two games of the season. Assuming he's earned a starting role for 2018, he should be one of the top IDPs selected at safety in fantasy drafts as he enters the last year of his contract with the Bears.
Amos (hamstring) was listed as a full participant at practice Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Amos has missed the Bears' past three games with a nagging hamstring issue, but appears set to make a return to action for Sunday's home game against the Browns. The Penn State product averaged seven tackles per game in his previous eight outings before being sidelined.
Amos (hamstring) is inactive for Saturday's game at Detroit.
Amos will miss a third consecutive contest as a result of hamstring injury suffered Week 12. Expect Chris Prosinski to hold down the fort at strong safety yet again.
Amos (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Amos was unable to practice this week and was listed as doubtful heading into the weekend, so he never had a great shot at suiting up. His absence clears the way for Deon Bush and Chris Prosinski to pick up more snaps at safety.
