The Bears have placed WR Byron Pringle on IR with an injury to his right calf. That will knock him out for at least 4 games. Pringle -- coming off preseason injury issues -- only managed 26 total snaps through the 1st 3 contests. So his absence shouldn't mean too much impact, especially for an offense vehemently opposed to throwing the ball.

7:31pm EDT 9/18/22

Bears WR Velus Jones (hamstring) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Packers. Darnell Mooney, Equanimeous St. Brown and Dante Pettis operated as Chicago’s top 3 WRs in the opener. We’ll see if WR Byron Pringle’s role increases tonight.

Bears WR Velus Jones (hamstring) didn't practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. Byron Pringle and Equanimeous St. Brown figure to operate as the #2 and #3 WRs behind Darnell Mooney.

Bears WR Velus Jones (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. The rookie's availability for this weekend's opener vs. the 49ers is in doubt -- but he shouldn't have been in your plans anyway. WR Byron Pringle, who missed time in August, isn't on the Week 1 injury report.

Bears WRs Byron Pringle (quad) and Velus Jones (undisclosed) returned to practice on Monday. That gives both guys a shot to play in Sunday's opener vs. the 49ers. Neither guy should be in Week 1 fantasy lineups, but we'll be keeping an eye on how snaps and targets are distributed behind WR Darnell Mooney.

The Bears' WR depth chart is "clear," according to The Athletic's Adam Jahns. "It’s [Darnell] Mooney followed by Byron Pringle ... Equanimeous St. Brown and Velus Jones Jr.," Jahns writes. Mooney remains the only WR in Chicago likely to have 2022 fantasy value. Pringle and Jones are only worth shots late in fantasy drafts of 18+ rounds.

WR Equanimeous St. Brown is listed with the 1st-team offense on the Bears' initial depth chart. These early-August depth charts are notoriously unreliable, so we're not reading much into this. But it at least looks like St. Brown has a shot to claim a significant role in a WR corps that's wide open behind Darnell Mooney. Byron Pringle and rookie Velus Jones are listed as the 2nd-team WRs.

Bears WR Byron Pringle has a quad injury and no timetable for return, HC Matt Eberflus said Saturday. Pringle is in the running for the wide-open #2 WR job in Chicago but can't afford to miss much time if he wants to win it. We'll see when he's able to get back on the field.

Bears WR Byron Pringle was arrested in Florida on Saturday. He's facing charges of reckless driving and driving with a suspended license. ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports that Pringle was pulled over for "doing donuts on a public road" and arrested after ignoring officer commands and becoming "verbally confrontational." We'll see if anything more comes from this, but Pringle's situation doesn't seem like enough to produce a league suspension. We're not adjusting our fantasy outlook for Pringle at this point.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that WR Byron Pringle will be signing a 1-year deal with the Bears. The contract includes $4 million guaranteed, with another $2 million available via incentives. Pringle set career highs of 60 targets, 42 catches, 568 yards and 5 TDs with the Chiefs last season. He heads to a Chicago offense with little at WR outside of Darnell Mooney. Pringle's contract also doesn't necessarily lock him into a top 2 -- or even top 3 -- role, though. We'll see what else the Bears do.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman started Friday night's preseason finally with Tyreek Hill in a 2-WR package. He would go on to play 9 of Patrick Mahomes' 15 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus, vs. 14 for Hill and 11 for Demarcus Robinson. Byron Pringle was the only other WR to see 1st-team work, but he played just 1 snap. We'll take that level of involvement for Hardman. It would be nice to have him as the clear 2nd wideout ahead of Robinson, but even splitting that role while clearly working among the top 3 should present enough playing time to help Hardman approach his high weekly fantasy ceiling. He's a risk-reward pick in the middle rounds of your fantasy football draft. Robinson is well worth a look near the end of drafts. Pringle looks like he'll need an injury ahead of him to make him relevant.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) remained sidelined on Thursday and is now looking unlikely to play vs. the Browns on Sunday. His absence will leave Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman and Byron Pringle as Kansas City's #2 through #4 WRs. We just updated our projections for the Chiefs passing game.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. He returned to limited practices this week, so a return for next Sunday night's game vs. the Packers seems realistic. With Watkins out last week, the pass routes run for Kansas City's WRs went like this: Demarcus Robinson 37, Byron Pringle 29, Mecole Hardman 25, Tyreek Hill 22. Hill should be closer to a full-go in his 2nd game back from that clavicle injury. His increased playing time figures to come at the expense of Pringle and/or Hardman.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Texans. He practiced all week, but it sounds like he's still awaiting final medical clearance. The good news is that we'll get Hill's official status by noon ET on Sunday. If he's active, he'll return to must-start status. The nature of his injury means he should be a full-go once he's cleared. If Hill is out, Kansas City will roll with WRs Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle and Mecole Hardman.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play against the Texans this weekend. That could again open up a significant role for WR Byron Pringle -- although we're still waiting to see if WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) returns this week.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday. Consider him no better than 50/50 to play against the Texans this weekend after injuring that hammy this past Sunday night. Watkins' absence would open up playing time for WR Byron Pringle.
