Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and TE Ben Braunecker (concussion) are out for Thursday's game against the Lions. Javon Wims figures to join Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller in 3-WR sets. Chicago is down to Jesper Horsted and J.P. Holtz at TE. Neither is a viable fantasy play, even in Thanksgiving DFS.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Ben Braunecker are in the concussion protocol. Both guys are unlikely to be cleared in time for Thursday's game against the Lions. WR Javon Wims figures to replace Gabriel in the starting lineup. We'll see where Chicago goes at TE with Trey Burton on IR and Adam Shaheen still sidelined with a foot injury.

The Bears on Saturday placed TE Trey Burton on IR with his calf injury, ending a season that was injury marred from the start. Burton hit September limited by a groin issue after offseason core-muscle surgery. He totaled just 14 catches in 8 games and never topped 20 yards in a single week. He'll be just 28 at the start of the 2020 season, though, with 2 years remaining on his contract. TE Adam Shaheen is also out or Sunday night's game against the Rams, leaving Ben Braunecker as Chicago's lead TE. There will be some upside to Shaheen once he's back from his foot injury.

Bears TEs Trey Burton (calf) and Adam Shaheen (foot) are out for Sunday night’s game against the Rams. That leaves Ben Braunecker as Chicago’s top TE, but he’s still not much of a fantasy option on this struggling offense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Bears TE Zach Miller will miss the rest of the season with the broken foot he suffered in yesterday's loss to the Giants. He's signed with Chicago cheaply next season and figures to be back with the team. But the Bears could certainly use an infusion of young talent at the position. We'll see if undrafted rookie TE Ben Braunecker can make any noise down the stretch.
