The Commanders are signing WR Byron Pringle to a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Pringle spent last season with the Bears but managed just 10 catches for 135 yards on 16 targets across 11 games. Injuries limited his chances to contribute at various points. Pringle has exceeded 13 receptions in just one of his four NFL seasons. So don't bet on a significant contribution in Washington -- barring injury to at least one starter.

Bears WR Chase Claypool (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bills. With WRs Darnell Mooney and Equanimeous St. Brown also out, Chicago is down to WRs Byron Pringle, Dante Pettis, Velus Jones and N’Keal Harry.

Bears WR Equanimeous St. Brown sustained a concussion in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Eagles and has been ruled out. That leaves Chicago with WRs Dante Pettis, Byron Pringle and Velus Jones.

Bears WR Chase Claypool (knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. We don't have any details on his injury, but Claypool didn't practice all week. With WR Darnell Mooney also out, Chicago is down to WRs Equanimeous St. Brown, Dante Pettis, Byron Pringle, N'Keal Harry and Velus Jones. TE Cole Kmet is the clear favorite to lead the Bears in targets this weekend.

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.

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.
