Shaheen caught his short touchdown pass from Chase Daniel to put the Bears on the scoreboard in the first quarter, and he saw just one additional target during the remainder of the game. Primarily a blocking tight end, he'll likely continue to be a low-volume player, but his size and athletic ability give him the potential to score a touchdown at any time.
Shaheen (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Shaheen suffered a head injury during Chicago's win over the Vikings in Week 11, and has now cleared the league-mandated concussion protocol. The 2017 second-round pick is on track to suit up against the Giants on Sunday, and will serve as the primary backup to Trey Burton. He'll look to earn his first target of the season.
Shaheen (concussion) isn't traveling with the team to Detroit for Thursday's game.
Shaheen's absence Thursday was to be expected since he was unable to practice this week after suffering the concussion in Sunday's win over the Vikings. Ben Braunecker should serve as the Bears' No. 2 tight end Thursday against the Lions.
Shaheen (concussion) didn't participate in practice Wednesday.
Shaheen sustained the concussion in the fourth quarter of Sunday's matchup with the Vikings. It seems unlikely that Shaheen will recover and clear the league's concussion protocol before Chicago's matchup with the Lions on Thursday. As long as Shaheen's sidelined, Ben Braunecker could see an increase in work.
Shaheen is under the league's concussion protocol and sat out Tuesday's practice.
Shaheen suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of Sunday's matchup with the Vikings. The tight end will need to clear the league's concussion protocol before he's eligible to play, though with the Bears set to face off with the Lions on Thursday, that seems like a long shot. Ben Braunecker will likely see an increased workload if Shaheen is inactive.
