Bears' Eddie Goldman: Opting out for health reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman plans to opt out of the 2020 season due to health concerns related to COVID-19, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 26-year-old nose tackle started 46 regular-season games over the past three years, averaging 37.7 tackles and 1.8 sacks per season. Goldman joins the growing list of players who will sit out the 2020 campaign, potentially freeing up a starting job for 31-year-old John Jenkins.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Could see more versatile role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman could take snaps at positions other than nose tackle in 2020 with defensive line coach Jay Rodgers emphasizing versatility and moving around the formation, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Goldman hasn't been asked to move around the formation much in his previous five seasons with the Bears, having primarily taken snaps at nose tackle over that stretch. Coming off the lowest sack total of his career, taking down opposing quarterbacks just once across 15 games in 2019, it's possible that assuming additional roles could offer a minor boost to Goldman's IDP value.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Won't face Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Vikings.

Goldman will miss his first contest of the season due to a brain injury. He'll finish the 2019 campaign with 29 tackles (20 solo) and one sack across 15 contests.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Listed as DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Goldman exited last Sunday's game against the Chiefs to be evaluated for a head injury and it seems probable that he currently remains under concussion protocol.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Ruled out against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Kansas City due to a concussion, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Goldman went to the locker room accompanied by a concussion specialist earlier and has now been ruled out.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Heads off to locker room early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (concussion) had to go to the locker room in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Goldman's return should be considered questionable at this time. The depth of Chicago's defensive line will be tested with Goldman joining the inactive Akiem Hicks (elbow) on the sidelines, at least for now.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Suiting up versus Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (thigh) is active for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Lions.

Goldman appears to have shed the thigh injury he suffered Week 9 versus the Eagles. He'll draw his usual start at nose tackle against Detroit on Sunday.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Goldman suffered the thigh injury during last week's loss to the Eagles but practiced in full Friday, so he has a good chance to play Week 10. Nick Williams would see a heavier workload at nose tackle should Goldman be unable to suit up.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Battling thigh injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (thigh) is listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice.

A thigh injury forced Goldman out of this past Sunday's loss to the Eagles, and he's still dealing with the effects. The fourth-year pro still has two practices to get back on the field. Nick Williams, who posted his fifth sack of the season Sunday, stands to benefit the most if Goldman can't play in Week 10's matchup against the Lions.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (thigh) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles.

It's unclear how Goldman picked up the injury, but he's been on the stationary bike and stretching on the sidelines trying to get back into the game. As long as he's sidelined, Nick Williams will likely get the bulk of the nose tackle reps in the game.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Set for Week 2 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (oblique) is active for Sunday's game against Denver, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Goldman was able to play in Week 1 after dealing with injury and was limited throughout practice heading into the game. Now that he's officially active, expect the 25-year-old to resume his role as the starting nose tackle. Against Green Bay last thursday, Goldman was able to play 52 percent of the defensive snaps.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Questionable for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (oblique) is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Broncos, Jeff Dickerson of reports.

Goldman was limited in Wednesday's practice and sat out of Thursday's session altogether. The 25-year-old was able to play in 33 defensive snaps (52 percent) in the Bears' season-opening loss to Green Bay, so it's unclear if he sustained the injury in the contest or sometime during the week.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Sits out preseason tilt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman was a spectator during Chicago's 27-17 victory over the Colts on Saturday.

Goldman has been steady over the past two years, averaging 42 tackles and over two sacks. He's also played in at least 15 games in three of his four seasons, so he's proven to be durable, but as an interior lineman, the numbers he's produced over the last couple years may be pretty close to his ceiling.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Notches third sack of 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman posted a sack and three tackles in Chicago's Week 17 victory over Minnesota, wrapping up the season with 39 tackles and three sacks.

After picking up seven sacks in 21 games over his first two seasons with the Bears, he's only notched 4.5 over his last 21 games, and he hasn't made the IDP splash that many hoped for after he was selected in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft. However, his ability to help the Bears' run defense is a big part of the reason he's signed through 2022, but it's unlikely that he'll turn into a big fantasy factor in the near future.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Signs extension with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman signed a four-year extension with the Bears on Friday.

Goldman is coming off a solid 2017 campaign with the Bears, where he posted a career-high 44 tackles but also had a career-low 1.5 sacks across 15 games. He was set to enter the final year of his rookie deal in 2018, but the nose tackle is now set to remain with the team through 2022.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Plays 15 games in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman tallied 44 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 15 games to finish his third season with the Bears.

Goldman posted a career high with the 44 tackles, but despite playing 608 snaps -- more than 90 more than he's played in either of his first two years with the Bears -- his 1.5 sacks represented the lowest total of his career. He'll enter the fourth and final year of his rookie deal, but he hasn't done enough to be considered a reliable fantasy option at this point of his career.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (hip) is listed as active for Saturday's game versus the Lions.

Goldman will return from a one-game absence for Saturday's divisional matchup. Look for him to resume his usual role at nose tackle assuming he avoids any setbacks.

December 10, 2017 12:28 PM
Bears' Eddie Goldman: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Goldman's absence likely leaves John Jenkins in line to pick up the start at nose tackle in Week 14.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Notches first sack of 2017 on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman posted three tackles along with a sack in Sunday's 29-7 defeat to the Buccaneers.

Despite the game being a blowout loss, Jameis Winston still dropped back 30 times to pass, and Goldman was able to record his first sack of the season. Although he struggled to stay healthy during the first two years of his career, should he be able to stay on the field, he has upside as an IDP option as an interior lineman.

Bears' Eddie Goldman: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldman (concussion) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is expected to play Sunday against the Falcons.

Goldman battled an ankle injury for a good chunk of last season, and it stunted what could've been a breakout season. He posted 18 tackles and 2.5 sacks over six games in 2016, so it's exciting to think what he can do with a full season of work. Keep an eye on this one.
