Bellamy caught one pass for 30 yards in the Week 17 loss to the Vikings and ended the season with 24 receptions (on 46 targets) for 376 yards and one touchdown.
Bellamy has been in the league five years and will be an unrestricted free agent as he enters his age-29 season. Although his aforementioned receiving yardage total was the best of his career, the fact he was unable to carve out much of a role on a team desperate for receiver help implies he'll serve as no better than a fourth or fifth wideout on a short-term contract in his next stop.
Bellamy (foot) practiced fully Thursday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Bellamy didn't take long elevating from some limitations to none at practice this week. With the Browns' 21st-ranked pass defense on tap Sunday, he'll seek out his fourth performance of 50-plus yards receiving in his last six appearances.
Bellamy was limited by a foot injury at Wednesday's practice, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
After a five-catch, 70-yard performance Saturday against the Lions, Bellamy is currently sitting on career bests in both receptions (20) and yards (297) in a given season. Those numbers rank fourth and third, respectively, among Bears skill-position players. With two practices to go this week, Bellamy has plenty of time to return in full before the Week 16 game versus the Browns.
Bellamy was second on the team with seven targets, and did the majority of his damage after the Bears fell behind 20-3 early in the second half. Although he's posted at least 52 yards in each of his last two games, he's failed to exceed five yards in seven different games this season, making him an extremely unreliable fantasy option.
Bellamy caught two passes for 52 yards in Sunday's win over the Bengals.
Bellamy was third on the team with four targets, and he was the only Bear with a reception of longer than 19 yards, when he caught a 36-yard pass early in the game. He's now posted at least 51 yards in three of the seven games he's played this season, but the fact that he's yet to reach the 60-yard plateau this season gives him limited upside.
