Top Bears News

  • Bears' Dane Cruikshank: Remains out

    Cruikshank (hamstring) is out Sunday against the Giants.

    Cruikshank was unable to practice all week after failing to play in Week 3 against the Texans. He'll now work toward a return in Week 5 against the Vikings.

  • Bears' Matt Adams: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Adams (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday against the Giants.

    Adams was able to log a limited practice Friday after logging DNP's on Wednesday and Thursday, but that may not be enough for the 26-year-old to take the field Sunday. Assuming he is out, recent signee to the active roster Joe Thomas will likely be looking at an increased snap count.

  • Bears' Khalil Herbert: Set to lead backfield

    Herbert's teammate David Montgomery (ankle/knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's road game against the Giants.

    Herbert rumbled for 157 rushing yards and two TDs last week with Montgomery leaving early against the Texans, playing 60 percent of snaps on offense to Trestan Ebner's 24 percent. Herbert also did well last season over a four-game stretch when Montgomery was injured, averaging 19.5 carries for 86 yards and 0.25 TDs and 2.3 catches for 11.0 yards on 2.5 targets. That type of workload isn't out of the question Sunday, as the Bears have been the most run-heavy team in the NFL by nearly any metric, attempting 34 fewer passes than any other team. The concern for Herbert is that they haven't scored much, with his two TDs last week accounting for one-third of the team's scores this year. Even with concerns about the offensive environment around him, Herbert's running ability and volume projection makes him a top-20 RB play for Week 5.

  • Bears' Cairo Santos: Questionable for Sunday

    Santos (personal) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the Giants.

    Santos was absent from practice both Thursday and Friday due to a personal issue, leaving his status up in the air for Week 4. The Bears currently don't have a kicker on the practice squad, so adding one Saturday and elevating that player likely would be an indication Santos won't be available Sunday. Assuming he's active, though, he's attached to an offense that has afforded him just four field-goal attempts and six point-after tries in three games this season.

  • Bears' Robert Quinn: Questionable due to illness

    Quinn (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Quinn didn't practice Thursday due to an illness but returned Friday as a limited participant. The veteran defensive end is off to a slow start in 2022 -- he has only one sack through three games after posting 18.5 sacks last year -- but his potential absence would still be a huge blow to Chicago's defense. He'll have until Sunday to clear his current aliment, but a decision on his availability may not come until closer to Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff.

  • Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Won't play Sunday

    Johnson (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Johnson will miss a second straight game due to a quadriceps injury. In his absence, Kindle Vildor should once again operate as a starter while Jaylon Jones takes over slot responsibilities in Chicago's secondary.

  • Bears' Ryan Griffin: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Griffin (Achilles) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Griffin didn't practice Thursday or Friday after being limited Wednesday and is trending towards a second straight absence due to a lingering Achilles issue. If he's indeed ruled out, Trevon Wesco figures to see an increased role once again in Week 4.

  • Bears' Roquan Smith: Will play at New York

    Smith (quadriceps) was a full participant at practice Friday and will play Sunday at the Giants, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Smith has played 100 percent of Chicago's defensive snaps through three games this season, and that doesn't figure to change much in Week 4 when the Bears take on a run-heavy Giants team. The do-it-all linebacker remains a top IDP option, and watching him meet Saquon Barkley between the tackles figures to be an entertaining plot point in an otherwise lackluster matchup.

  • Bears' Velus Jones: Week 4 debut likely

    Jones (hamstring) was a full practice participant Friday and has practiced every day this week, so the rookie third-round pick could be in line to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Giants, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. Jones officially is listed as questionable.

    Jones has missed Chicago's first three games while recovering from a hamstring injury, but he could be ready to debut Week 4. He played alongside the starters in three-receiver sets during the preseason, but Jones may be brought along slowly in games that count, and Chicago has employed the most run-heavy offensive approach of any team in the early going, so fantasy managers are best served taking a wait-and-see approach with the rookie out of Tennessee.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Out this week

    Montgomery (ankle/knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Montgomery hasn't practiced since his early exit from a Week 3 win over Houston. His departure set up a career-best showing from Khalil Herbert, who is inferior to Montgomery as a blocker and receiver but arguably superior as a pure runner. Trestan Ebner took over the backup role after Montgomery's departure last week, while Darrynton Evans could be called up from the practice squad before Sunday. Herbert figures to start and get the bulk of carries.

  • Bears' Ryan Griffin: Trending backward

    Griffin (Achilles) was a non-participant in practice Thursday.

    Griffin was unable to suit up in Week 3, but he did log a limited practice Wednesday, suggesting he may be ready for a Week 4 return. However, Griffin's participation level went backward to a DNP on Thursday, leaving the veteran tight end's status in greater doubt. If he is unable to play Sunday against the Giants, Trevon Wesco will likely see increased opportunity once again.

  • Bears' Velus Jones: Stays limited in practice

    Jones (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

    The rookie wideout has now turned in four straight limited practices dating back to last week, but he might need to put in a full session Friday to avoid taking an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Giants. Even if he remains limited Friday, Jones could still have a shot at making his NFL debut this weekend, though he likely wouldn't hold a prominent role on offense right away. The rookie is expected to make his initial impact on special teams as a return man.

  • Bears' David Montgomery: Sidelined for another practice

    Montgomery (ankle/knee) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice.

    Sidelined for the second practice in a row, Montgomery is looking uncertain to play in Sunday's game against the Giants while he manages the two lower-body injuries. Unless Montgomery is able to get in some on-field work Friday, he'll likely sit out the Week 4 contest, which would pave the way for Khalil Herbert to take on a workhorse role out of the Chicago backfield.
