LeBlanc ended his rookie campaign by picking off a pair of passes over his last three contests, and although those were his only picks of the year, the strong finish provides optimism that he could be a big part of the Bears defense as he enters the second year of a three-year contract in 2017. Although he'll likely go undrafted in many IDP leagues, he could emerge as a sneaky option if he has a strong training camp.
There was concern a couple of weeks ago that Long wouldn't be ready for Week 1, but with the lineman back at practice Monday, it looks like he's no longer in danger of missing time in the regular season. Long is making the transition from right guard to left guard in 2017.
Banks played in nine games last season, recording just six tackles and one pass breakup for three different teams. He's currently competing for a role on special teams, but it is yet to be seen whether this injury will be a long-term issue.
Young has had trouble with a strained groin in recent practices, so his availability for Saturday's exhibition suggests he's good to go moving forward. He's expected to slot in as a starting outside linebacker opposite the ascending Leonard Floyd.
Cunningham was on the field with both the starters and reserves, but when he was on the field with the first-string, he was used in a pass-catching role. He also gave the Bears great field position after returning a kickoff for 41 yards. On his touchdown, he found himself open in the flat when he caught a short pass from Mitch Trubisky and ran the ball into the end zone. His potential role in the offense is still being defined, though it's a near certainty that he'll be on the roster.
The severity of the injury isn't clear, but it sounds like he could be sidelined awhile.
Wheaton originally broke the finger during Sunday's practice, not long after returning from an appendectomy that kept him sidelined for nearly two full weeks. Without a clear timeline regarding Wheaton's potential return, Kendall Wright and Victory Cruz will have an opportunity to improve their stock as they battle for the No. 3 spot at wide receiver.
Randle was placed on IR to make room on the roster for kicker Roberto Aguayo, who was just claimed off waivers. Notably, the veteran receiver was already facing long odds of making the roster due to a crowded field at the position. The move hints that Randle may have even less fantasy value that previously anticipated, and that he'll likely struggle to make it onto the field this season.
Unrein was a regular on the field at defensive end for the Bears, but his inability to compile numbers has made him nearly invisible as a fantasy option, as he averaged two tackles per contest. He's under contract with the Bears next season, though he'll need to show significant improvement to become a viable option in IDP leagues.
In a season in which he lost four games to his suspension, Freeman finished the season strong by posting at least nine tackles in each of his last four games. He'll enter the second year of a four-year contract with the Bears in 2017, and he should continue to produce excellent tackle numbers, making him an elite IDP option at inside linebacker
On the Broncos' first offensive series, Floyd quickly beat the right tackle with a combination of speed and hand technique to record his sack. In addition, he also knocked down the quarterback on a subsequent drive. He's already viewed by many as an IDP sleeper, and this performance will likely help fantasy managers identify him as a potential source of sacks.
Houston missed out on last week's exhibition as he was still working his way back to full speed following surgery to repair a torn ACL. He seems to have fallen behind Leonard Floyd and Willie Young on the depth chart and will face added competition for snaps when Pernell McPhee (knee) eventually returns. However, Houston should remain a key member of the rotation at outside linebacker and could push for a double-digit sack total should he remain healthy for the duration of the campaign. In his last full season with the Bears in 2015, the Texas product notched 42 tackles, eight sacks and a fumble recovery.
Cruz worked primarily out of the slot during the Bears' offseason program, and with Cameron Meredith and Kevin White likely to lock down the starting receiving jobs on the outside, that's probably Cruz's best chance to make an impact. The veteran will still need to beat out Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton to garner enough targets to warrant fantasy consideration, so expectations should probably remain in check.
McManis played through his hamstring injury last week and was expected to this week. His main role will likely be on special teams once again.
Timu ascended into the starting lineup over the final three games of the season and was able to make the most of the opportunity, recording 23 tackles. While Shea McClellin looks like a strong candidate to return as a starter at one of the middle linebacker spots in 2016, the remaining spot could be up for grabs between Timu, Christian Jones, and any other candidates the front office may elect to bring in this offseason.
This report is based upon statements made by general manager Ryan Pace at the team's initial press conference of training camp. This is excellent news, as even if Trevathan isn't ready for the first practices of camp, it indicates that he could have a chance to be ready to play when the regular season begins.
It isn't certain when Anderson suffered the injury, or when he'll be back in action.
Carey saw playing time with both the starters and backups, but he averaged just 1.2 yards per carry. His biggest play of the game was when he caught a screen pass and turned it into an 18-yard gain. The veteran appears to be in a battle for a roster spot, in his performance over the next two weeks will ultimately decide his fate with the team.
While the extent of his participation is unclear, Howard's quick return to practice in some capacity supports the belief that his eye injury isn't a major concern. He suffered a corneal abrasion during Friday's practice and was held out of Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals. In Howard's absence, Tarik Cohen strengthened his case to serve as the top backup when he gained 77 yards on 11 carries. The pint-sized rookie could challenge Howard for regular passing-down work, as he had at least 25 receptions in each of his last three seasons at North Carolina A&T.
Shaheen played with the second-string offense, and after making his only reception, he stumbled to the ground, which kept him from turning it into a bigger play. Although the rookie has vast potential, it seems likely he'll remain behind Zach Miller on the depth chart as the primary receiving tight end.
Burton, who was waived by the Lions on Tuesday, brings size to a Bears backfield that includes Jordan Howard and then a whole bunch of change-of-pace type backs. However, Burton has received just four carries throughout his first two years in the league and will likely need to earn his keep on special teams in order to make the team.
Each of Wright's three targets, including a red-zone interception, came from starting quarterback Mike Glennon. The former Titan has served as the team's top slot receiver through the first two weeks of the preseason, leaving Victor Cruz without a clear role in the offense. Markus Wheaton (finger) could still push Wright for playing time down the line, but the former Steeler doesn't seem likely to be ready for Week 1.
Howard signed with the Bears in the wake of season-ending hip surgery that curtailed his 2016 campaign. He should see plenty of playing time Saturday as the team looks to solidify its defensive line rotation.
This move was expected, as Kush tore his hamstring at practice. He was slated to be a swing player for the interior of the Bears' offensive line, so he would have served as a valuable presence backing up the currently injured Kyle Long (ankle). However, this injury does not figure to impact any of the Bears' skill players heading into the season.
Webb has played for four teams in as many seasons and the Bears will now mark his fifth. The journeyman played in 14 games for the Saints last season, including eight starts, and finished the 2016 season with 28 tackles and one interception. He likely isn't guaranteed a roster spot considering Chicago currently has 12 other cornerbacks under contract.
Hicks was tending to a sore Achilles this week, but it was never believed to be a big deal. He should slot in with the first-string defense Saturday.
Amukamara exited Monday's practice with a hamstring injury and missed a couple of practices in the following days. He should take over as a starter in Saturday's game now that he's good to go.
Even though the Bears lost Zach Miller to injury in Week 11, Dan Brown took over as the primary receiving option at tight end while Braunecker saw very limited opportunity as a receiver. On the season, he caught four of six targets with a long reception of 14 yards. He's under contract with the team for one more year, and is often the case with young tight ends, he certainly could see improvement, so it's possible that he could eventually emerge into a viable fantasy option.
Glennon looked more relaxed than he did in the preseason opener, but he threw an interception after moving the Bears deep into Arizona territory. Fortunately, he bounced back two drives later to lead the team on a touchdown drive. His numbers could've been better, but when he threw a deep pass to Cameron Meredith, the defender grabbed Meredith and a penalty was called, which might have negated a big play. This performance certainly didn't hurt him in his quest to be the Week 1 starter.
Hall was accompanied by a former teammate at Northern Iowa in Packers CB Makinton Dorleant and ultimately charged with three misdemeanor counts for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and interference. We'll wait and see if the league decides to dish out a punishment.
The Chicago coaching staff continued to use their rookie quarterback on rollouts to try to keep him comfortable as he acclimates to NFL defenses. Trubisky took his only sack on a third-down play in which he was stationed in the pocket. For him to reach his full potential, he'll need to show the ability to work from the pocket on a regular basis. Overall, however, he's having an excellent preseason, and it appears to be just a matter of time until he takes over as the starting quarterback.
Robertson-Harris will have to clear the league''s concussion protocol before he can get back to action. The 24-year-old was expected to take a step forward this season. How long he's sidelined could impact whether he'll have to wait for an increased role.
Brown was the fourth tight end on the Bears to see action in the game and played with the second team. He missed out on an opportunity to convert a first down, dropping a pass that hit him right in the hands. He's buried on the depth chart at present, and unless that situation changes, he's not likely to be much of a fantasy factor to start the season.
Fuller dealt with a seemingly minor calf injury in training camp, but he appears to be healthy again. Look for him to assume a backup role Saturday behind starters Marcus Cooper and Prince Amukamara.
Boggs will have to pass through the league's concussion protocol before he can make a return to the field. Last season, Boggs appeared in five games for the Cardinals.
Jones-Quartey left Wednesday's practice early, but it wasn't clear why at first. He apparently rolled an ankle, but the severity of the injury isn't known.
Bullard suffered a glute injury, but the severity isn't clear. He should be considered questionable to play in the third preseason game this Sunday in Tennessee.
After impressing as a rookie in 2015, when he posted 67 tackles and one sack, he produced at an almost identical level in 2016. He's still under contract for two more years, and there's still time for him to improve upon his numbers, but unless he shows more playmaking ability, he'll continue to be an uninspiring IDP option at safety.
After a rookie season in which he started three games and appeared in all 16, Pruitt wasn't utilized nearly as much during the 2016 campaign, earning active status twice before landing on Minnesota's practice squad during Week 10 prep. He'll serve as tight end depth in a receiving corps without the likes of Zach Miller (foot) and Kevin White (fibula).
Cooper was limited in practice with a hamstring injury this week. He should roll out with the first-string unit Saturday opposite Prince Amukamara.
Miller played with a starting offense and caught both of his passes from Mike Glennon. Since he's proven to be healthy this preseason, he has the inside track to start the season as the team's primary receiving tight end.
Meredith led the team in targets, and was clearly used as the team's top option in the passing attack. He was also targeted on a deep pass down the left sideline by Mike Glennon, but after Meredith got past his defender, the cornerback took a holding penalty rather than allowing the receiver to make a big play. He's still looking like a great upside pick in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.
Grasu tore his ACL in training camp last summer and spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve. He was a limited participant in OTAs this spring but said he'll be "120 percent" by the start of training camp.
Prosinski has been more of a special teamer for the Bears, but has appeared in 29 of a possible 32 game since joining Chicago in 2015.
Bellamy hurt his ankle in the preseason opener and is yet to return to practice, so this comes as no surprise. It's uncertain when he'll return to the fold.
The third-year linebacker took a sizeable step back in production during 2016 following the club's signings of Jerrell Freeman and Danny Trevathan, notching just 15 tackles (nine solo) on the campaign. Trevathan (knee) could begin 2017 on the PUP list, potentially opening a starting spot early in the season for Jones once again.
Wilson appeared in six games for the Bears last season, starting one of them and tallying 13 tackles along the way. He isn't guaranteed a roster spot and will need to compete for a rotational role at defensive end ahead of the 2017 campaign.
Lauded for his pass-catching potential throughout the draft process, Cohen surprisingly hasn't been targeted through two preseason games, instead doing all of his damage via the ground, where he's piled up 18 carries for 116 yards (6.4 average). He started Saturday's game in place of Jordan Howard (eye), carrying the ball on the first two plays of the opening drive. Jeremy Langford (ankle) was held out for a second straight game, and while the veteran did resume practicing earlier in the week, Cohen has already made a strong case to serve as Howard's top backup -- a role that could include quite a bit of passing-down work.
Although Kwiatkoski is a backup inside linebacker, he's a more-than-capable option for the Bears. Should he be needed to make starts during the season, his ability to pile up tackles could make him a streaming IDP option.
Acho has spent the past two seasons in Chicago where he has notched 66 tackles (48 solo), one sack, and two forced fumbles in 31 games following a four-year stint with the Cardinals. He figures to once again provide depth for the Bears' linebacker unit, while Pernell McPhee, Leonard Floyd, and Lamarr Houston figure to compete for the starting roles on the outside.
Langford had been easing his way back from a sprained ankle, which ultimately kept him sidelined for the Bears' first preseason contest. It's unclear at this point how involved he'll be during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Cardinals, as the Bears may elect to play it safe with the health of their No. 2 running back behind Jordan Howard.
Aguayo had an ugly miss, as the ball came off his foot like a baseball pitcher throwing a knuckleball, and the ball drifted wide to the right. With two weeks left to go in the preseason, it's difficult to imagine that he'll overtake Connor Barth to become the Bears starting kicker.
Sanchez was on the field briefly as the second-string quarterback and although he started moving the Bears offense, a bad snap on a third-down play resulted in the drive being aborted. As long as the team leaves Mike Glennon in as a starter, Sanchez will likely continue to serve as the backup while Mitch Trubisky is groomed to eventually take over as the first-string quarterback.
Jackson has been impressive through the early days of camp, as he's competing for a role at free safety. In addition, Jackson and Tarik Cohen both served as punt returners. Should Jackson retain this role during the season, he'll have value in leagues that feature scoring for return yardage. However, until his role on defense is determined, he's not worth a roster spot in IDP leagues.
White at least showed up in the box score after failing to draw a target in the Bears' preseason opener. Chicago moved the ball and put up some points thanks to a strong running game, but starting quarterback Mike Glennon struggled again, completing 13 of 18 passes for only 89 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He spread the ball around quite a bit, feeding four targets to Cameron Meredith and a touchdown to Kendall Wright. While White still figures to enter Week 1 with a starting job, he isn't doing anything to encourage the notion that he'll produce on a regular basis in a run-oriented offense.
Sheppard spent 2016 with the Giants, during which he started 11 games and recorded 50 tackles. The six-year veteran had his best professional year in 2015, when he recorded 105 stops for the Dolphins. He'll now fight to earn a spot among Chicago's linebacking corps.
Davis wasn't available to play in the preseason opener last week but has since returned to practice.
Sitton was granted a temporary leave of absence after his wife went into labor early last week. Now back at camp, Sitton projects to resume his starting spot along the Bears offensive line.
Goldman had suffered from dehydration during his conditioning test Wednesday, but after being held out of practice Thursday, he's back on the field. If he can put together a healthy camp, he'll have a chance to post solid sack and tackle numbers as an interior lineman, making him a sleeper candidate in IDP leagues as he enters his third year as a pro.
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.
Demps, who finished the 2016 campaign with a hamstring injury, is expected to slide in as a starting safety in the Bears' secondary after leading his entire position in interceptions last season.
Jenkins split last season between New Orleans and Seattle, recording 13 tackles in nine games. He only has 62 tackles and 1.5 sacks in his four-year career, but at 350-plus pounds, he could be of use to Chicago's run defense in a depth role.
For the second week in a row, Sims was used primarily as a blocker. However, his reception came on a designed play when the quarterback was sent on a rollout while Sims found an ocean of space that allowed him to convert a first down. He'll likely enter the season as a blocker with limited opportunities in the passing game.
With McPhee still being on the PUP list, he's unable to take part in any practices, but his attendance shows that he is certainly progressing on the road to recovery. He remains without an exact timetable for a return, but head coach John Fox said Tuesday that he doesn't think it will be this week.
As expected, Shaw will take a seat as he recovers from minor ankle surgery, leaving all the reps Thursday for Mike Glennon, Mark Sanchez and Mitchell Trubisky.
Although Thompson wasn't used in the passing game, after being used in that capacity in the first preseason game, his impact was felt as he returned a missed field goal 109 yards for a score. Although he'll occasionally contribute as a receiver, he'll have value in fantasy leagues that use kickoff return yardage, as he's one of the better return men in the NFL.
Skuta spent the past two seasons in Jacksonville but dealt with a string of injuries last year that limited his productivity, as he only managed to record 18 tackles and one pass deflection through 13 games in 2016. The drop-off in performance was enough for the Jaguars to sever ties with the once-starting outside linebacker, who was slated to make $12.3 million over the next three seasons.
Braverman wasn't available to play in last week's preseason opener, so he'll need to perform well in these final three exhibitions in order to make the final roster.
Bush was a limited participant in Friday's practice session, but ultimately wasn't up to the task for the team's final contest of the season. Harold Jones-Quartey should start at strong safety Sunday, with Demontre Hurst potentially subbing in if needed.
