Alford made just one catch for 12 yards this preseason, as he was buried on the team's wide receiver depth chart. He had a shot to make the final roster as a return man on special teams, but he will now open the regular season on the free-agent market.
DePaolo is a vested veteran who isn't subject to the waiver wire. Thus, he's immediately eligible to sign with another team.
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.
Long only played one snap last week against the Packers, as the lineman is dealing with a plethora of injuries at the moment. It seems like the veteran will power through the pain this week in hopes of playing Sunday against the Lions. Look for more updates to come once Friday's injury report is released.
Santos met with the Bears on Thursday but initially wasn't signed. The team opted to change course at kicker, however, after Connor Barth missed a 46-yard field goal attempt in the waning seconds of Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Lions. While Santos has a strong track record, he's unlikely to produce points at a prolific rate due to his reliance on a lackluster Chicago offense. He was an above-average kicker for Kansas City the past three seasons before being replaced by Harrison Butker after suffering a groin injury earlier in the campaign.
This doesn't come as much of surprise, as it was expected that Young would need season-ending surgery. With Young out, Pernell McPhee is expected to take on his workload at outside linebacker, and the open roster spot will allow Danny Trevathan to return from his one-game suspension.
After seeing more work than rookie Tarik Cohen last week, the veteran took a back seat to the rookie in this contest. He's been held to fewer than 10 yards in two of his last three games, and he's a low-upside fantasy option with a scary floor in PPR leagues.
Spruce is now a free agent who can look for another team to pick him up for an expected practice squad role.
Houston-Carson's inactive status shouldn't impact the team greatly, since he's played exclusively on special teams to this point. He'll be looking to return for next week's game against the Eagles.
Wheaton only saw two snaps in the Bears' Week 10 loss to the Packers after coming off a three-game absence due to injury. However, head coach John Fox indicated there is "no doubt" Wheaton is more prepared to contribute in Week 11 after another week of practice under his belt. Still, the 26-year-old is fourth on the Bears' receiving depth chart, and the team figures to rely on their ground game going forward.
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.
Mizzell's inactive status confirms that he's fourth in the pecking order at running back, with all of Jordan Howard, Tarik Cohen and Benny Cunningham ahead of him on the depth chart. It will probably take an injury for Mizzell to be active at any point this season, and multiple injuries in order for him to log meaningful snaps on offense.
Already on injured reserve with a torn pectoral, Freeman won't get a paycheck for the final eight games of the season, and he'll then have to miss the first two games next year. This ends any chance he might've had to return from IR, and it could prompt the Bears to release him after the season.
As expected, Floyd's season is officially over after he was diagnosed with MCL and PCL sprains in his right knee. The linebacker will undergo surgery within the week. Floyd's absence will leave a gap within the Bears' defensive front, and they'll use his roster spot to promote linebacker Howard Jones to their active roster.
With Mitchell Trubisky completing just four passes to his wide receivers, McBride was the second-most productive player at his position on the afternoon, but he was a minor part of the game plan. Aside from his unexpected 92-yard effort in Week 8, he's posted just 32 yards in the other five games he's played and isn't targeted enough to be a reliable fantasy option.
While it isn't clear if Grant is past the head injury that landed him on IR in the first place, he'll be eligible to sign with another team if he passes through waivers.
Gentry has bounced back and forth between the Bears' active roster and practice squad throughout the season. Outside of two receptions for 27 yards in Week 2, the rookie has failed to make much of an impression in the league so far. He will presumably stay on the team's practice squad until injures afford him another opportunity on the 53-man roster.
McManis was back in action Thursday and it appears he'll be ready to go for Sunday's showdown with the Lions, barring any major setbacks. The cornerback has missed the past three contests because of the hamstring ailment, so his return Sunday could go a long way in shoring up the Bears' secondary.
Timu has missed three consecutive games, but the team's bye week appears to have provided the necessary recovery time. The 25-year-old likely will serve as a reserve linebacker and special teams player if he can avoid a setback this week.
Jones' promotion comes after linebacker Leonard Floyd was placed on injured reserve. With the Bears' linebacking unit plagued with injuries, it's possible Jones could ultimately see some snaps, but he's expected to play a reserve role on defense early on.
Trevathan isn't starting Week 12 prep on solid footing, as evidenced by his continued focus on rehab rather than practice. Still, he has two practices to make an appearance by week's end. Another absence Sunday in Philadelphia would result in another start for Christian Jones at inside linebacker.
Anderosn was waived by the Bears prior to the start of the regular season, but he will be called up with the open roster spot created by Jerrell Freeman being placed on injured reserve. Anderson will provide additional depth at linebacker for Chicago.
No injury was reported for Inman in the aftermath of Sunday's 27-24 loss to Detroit, but he apparently came out of the contest with some discomfort or soreness in his groin. Inman has led all Chicago wideouts in snap share the past two games, topping 84 percent in both contests while combining to catch nine of 13 targets for 131 yards. Assuming his injury isn't serious, Inman could stay busy in Week 12 against an Eagles team that often forces opponents to abandon the run game. It's still difficult to see much upside in any piece of the Chicago passing game.
It was Howard's third 100-yard game of the Mitchell Trubisky era and brought his first score. His 12-yard dash put Chicago up by two scores in the second quarter. In Weeks 3 through 8, Howard was among the league's most active backs with at least 20 touches in five of six games. He's been held to 15 touches in back-to-back weeks now, and Tarik Cohen chimed in with 13 touches and a touchdown Sunday. Howard, as he showed against the Bears, is more than capable of being productive in shorter stints, but the dynamics of Chicago's backfield are worth keeping an eye on.
Shaheen helped extend the Bears' lead in the first quarter, running to the back corner of the end zone to haul in a one-yard touchdown pass -- his second of the season. Shaheen, a small-school prospect out of Ashland, was quiet to start the year with just two targets through eight games. He's seen six targets in the past two weeks and has caught them all. It seems like he's adjusting to the considerable uptick around him. With little else to play for this season, look for Chicago to see what they have in young offensive weapons like Mitchell Trubisky, Tarik Cohen and Shaheen.
Burton saw limited snaps in his typical fullback position and made the most with his lone opportunity to touch the ball. It's unlikely that he'll see significantly more than 20 carries for the entire season.
Compton was limited in practice Friday but the team determined he wasn't yet ready to suit up. Sunday's game will mark the second straight game the reserve lineman has missed.
Amazingly, Wright was Chicago's leading wide receiver in this game with his 25-yard effort while the tight ends and running backs were far more involved in the team's game plan. He's posted between 23 and 46 yards in each of his last three games, making him a borderline fantasy option with little upside in leagues that use PPR scoring.
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.
Hicks has been absolutely on fire, collecting five sacks over his last four games. With seven sacks and a fumble recovery in eight games to start the season, he's become a high-level IDP.
Amukamara has been dealing with the ankle injury since late August, so it's good to see him put a full practice in. The oft-injured cornerback looks to be on track to make his season debut against Antonio Brown and the Steelers on Sunday.
Braunecker joins the Bears following the news of Zach Miller being done for the season following emergency leg surgery. Braunecker was originally waived by the Bears at the start of the regular season and will now serve as a depth option at tight end for the final stretch.
Glennon has completed 66.4 percent of his attempts in an ultra-conservative passing attack, but he's averaging only 6.0 yards per attempt and has already thrown five interceptions. While the Bears' lack of receiving talent was part of the problem, Glennon only made matters worse with his poor decision-making and shaky accuracy. Trubisky at least offers some upside thanks to his mobility and arm strength. The Bears won't have much incentive to turn back to Glennon, regardless of how Trubisky performs.
The Bears will thus have a 21-day window to evaluate Hall's health in practices before adding him to the 53-man roster or leaving him on injured reserve for the rest of the season. Given that the second-year cornerback has been sidelined since the preseason finale, Hall will likely need more than a week of practice time to regain conditioning, so it seems rather unlikely that he'll be activated in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Eagles.
Trubisky padded the Bears' early lead in the first quarter with a one-yard touchdown in the back corner of the end zone to fellow rookie Adam Shaheen. The fun, for the most part, stopped there as a Trubisky fumble led to the Lions' first touchdown in the second quarter. Trubisky has been excellent at playing Foxball, head coach John Fox's conservative brand of football, with just one pick in his last five games. Still, with just three touchdowns in that span, he shouldn't be on your radar.
Robertson-Harris sustained this injury in Week 7 against the Panthers, but he'll benefit from the bye week that comes in Week 9. The 24-year-old has just four tackles (two solo) this season, so he has minimal fantasy impact in his role as a reserve lineman.
With Dion Sims missing his second straight game with an illness, Brown's posted exactly 23 yards in each contest. However, considering Adam Shaheen appears ready to begin taking on a larger role in the passing game, Brown isn't a recommended fantasy option in most leagues.
Fuller required medical attention after cutting his hand during Sunday's loss to the Lions, but he's in no danger of missing the Week 12 matchup with the Eagles.
The severity of the injury was never fully revealed, but it's nonetheless good to see Bullard participate fully after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday.
Amos continued to play at a high level, as he posted eight tackles for the third time in five games since being moved to the starting lineup. Additionally, he's yet to record fewer than six tackles in a game and has become a very consistent IDP option overall.
Cooper, who's dealing with back spasms, did a light workout in pregame warmups but was evidently deemed unfit to play. His absence should mean more playing time for Kyle Fuller and Bryce Callahan.
An undrafted rookie tight end out of Temple, Thompson took part in training camp with the Giants, but was cut loose after requiring an appendectomy. Now apparently back to full strength, Thompson could earn a promotion to the Bears' active roster if he impresses in practices. The Bears lost starting tight end Zach Miller (knee) to a likely season-ending injury and career-threatening injury in their last game Oct. 29 against the Saints.
Miller's move to IR is merely a formality after the tight end suffered a likely career-ending injury in the Bears' last game Oct. 29 against the Saints. While the vascular surgery Miller required to preserve his left leg was successful and he was cleared to head back to Chicago earlier this week, he's still set to undergo additional surgeries to repair the ligaments in his leg. The Bears signed fellow tight end Ben Braunecker from their practice squad to take Miller's spot on the 53-man roster.
IR was Meredith's final destination since he tore the ACL in his left knee in preseason Week 3. In addition to the ACL, he's also tending to a minor tear in his MCL, which could serve to extend the rehab process. With Meredith out of the picture in 2017, the Bears will trot out a receiving corps headed by Kevin White, Markus Wheaton (finger) and Kendall Wright after the release of Victor Cruz (knee).
Grasu hasn't appeared in a game since Week 3, but appears to be healthy coming off the Bears' bye week. Thursday and Friday's practice sessions should provide further clarity on whether the 26-year-old has fully recovered from the injury.
The nature of Morgan's injury isn't clear. He's unlikely to come off IR before season's end unless he agrees to an injury settlement with the Bears.
After a DNP at Wednesday's practice, Bellamy has progressed slightly through the concussion protocol, but an independent neurologist must sign off on his health in order to suit up Sunday at Philadelphia. Even if does get the all-clear, his targets have come sporadically this season, as evidenced by four or more looks in four contests and none in each of the other six.
Jones was Chicago's most productive defender with his sixth straight strong performance. Since moving into the lineup, he's recorded at least seven tackles in each game while adding a pair of sacks. He's quickly become an excellent IDP option who should be rostered in just about every league.
Whitehair sustained the injury against the Saints in Week 8 and did not return to the game, but he appears healthy following the Bears' bye week. The 24-year-old may be battling Hroniss Grasu for the starting job at center for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Jordan Howard also logged 31 snaps, while Benny Cunningham only got 17. Part of Cohen's uptick was due to the team's usage of both him and Howard at the same time, but it also seems that the rookie took a chunk of Cunningham's usual work on passing downs. While the Bears had mostly been using Cunningham in those spots due to his pass blocking, it makes sense to allow Cohen some opportunities to develop. He took advantage Sunday, picking up 44 yards and a touchdown on nine carries, albeit with just four catches for 15 yards on six targets. Cohen could re-emerge as a PPR asset if his workload stabilizes around this level beyond Sunday. He logged 18 or fewer snaps in five of Chicago's previous six games entering Week 11.
Scales was thought to be a fringe roster guy before suffering a knee injury. He will now spend 2017 on the team's IR.
Although Kwiatkoski has recorded four or fewer tackles in three of the four games he's played this season, he's collected sacks in each of his last two matchups. He's not an elite IDP option at linebacker, but his production in the two games since returning to the lineup makes him an interesting streaming option while he stays hot.
Whatever issues Sanchez was dealing with that held him out of Thursday's practice look to be behind him. He'll once again serve as the Bears' No. 3 option at quarterback.
Jackson provided the only touchdowns that were scored in a 17-3 victory for the Bears. Although he's posted at least four tackles in each of his last three games, his performance in Sunday's contest represented his first breakout effort of the season. Unless he proves to be a consistent producer, it's difficult to recommend adding him in IDP leagues based solely upon this week's results.
Donte Moncrief suffered the same injury last season and only missed five games, but he was never particularly effective and ultimately re-injured his shoulder late in the year. Bears coach John Fox said White's injury may require surgery, which likely would rule him out for the season. Should he avoid the surgery, White might be able to return from injured reserve some time after Week 8. The Bears are left with Kendall Wright, Markus Wheaton (finger), Josh Bellamy and Deonte Thompson at wide receiver.
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.
Callahan will be missing his second straight game due to his knee injury. The backup corner sees a decent amount of snaps despite his position on the depth chart, and his absence will likely open the door for Marcus Cooper to see an uptick in reps once again.
Demps, who joined the Bears on a three-year deal this offseason, started three games at strong safety before breaking his arm in Week 3 against the Steelers. There's a chance the veteran could be activated from IR later on this season, but that's far from certain. As it stands, Demps will finish his first season in Chicago with 12 tackles to his name.
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.
A mystery illness has kept Sims away from the field for two games, but his return in some capacity Wednesday indicates he's beginning to regain his health. He would help himself by getting through the week unscathed, but his absence has paved the way for the emergence of rookie tight end Adam Shaheen, who has hauled in all six targets for 80 yards and one touchdown during that span. Once he's cleared to play again, it's unclear what kind of snap count Sims can expect.
McPhee was able to record a sack for the fourth time in the five games he's played this season. Despite averaging less than two tackles per contest, he's shown excellent ability to rush the passer, and although he has a worrisome floor, he's proven to be a strong IDP option while enjoying a healthy start to the season.
Bush injured his hamstring in the team's season opener, and was unable to play in Week 2. He is seemingly back to full health now and figures to return to his special teams role Sunday against the Steelers.
