Callahan (hamstring) signed his exclusive rights one-year tender with Chicago, Matt Eurich of CBS Sports reports.
Callahan played in only 11 games in 2016 but he recorded 32 tackles and five passes defensed as a depth corner. He'll likely be a backup corner once again in 2017, but he could see an increased role with the defense in what will be his third NFL season.
Callahan was limited to just 11 games last season due to a combination of hamstring, knee and head injuries but still set career highs in tackles (32) and passes defended (5). While it isn't clear if he's recovered from the hamstring injury that prevented him from taking part in the season finale, there doesn't appear to be any concern over his availability for the offseason program.
This will be the second missed game for Callahan over the team's last three, although the other absence was due to a knee issue, rather than his current hamstring injury. Deiondre' Hall and Sherrick McManis are the top candidates for added playing time in the absence of Callahan.
Callahan (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's game against Minnesota.
Callahan had been dealing with a knee injury prior to last week's game against Washington and he appears to have since tweaked his hamstring. Deiondre' Hall and Sherrick McManis will likely see some added time if Callahan is held out.
Callahan (knee) is listed as active for Saturday's game against the Redskins.
Callahan figures to draw the start at cornerback opposite Tracy Porter, and he'll likely see plenty of reps with Cre'von LeBlanc (knee) sidelined.
