Bears S Jaquan Brisker (groin) is active for today's game against the Browns. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

Bears WR D.J. Moore (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Browns today, ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms. Moore was a full-go in Friday's practice, so we're not expecting the ankle to be a significant factor today.

Bears S Jaquan Brisker (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Adam Hoge of AllCHGO.com reports that Brisker "tweaked" his groin in Wednesday's practice but "seems to be doing better" after sitting out Thursday's workout. We'll check Brisker's status ahead of the game.

Bears WR D.J. Moore (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Browns. He went from no practice on Wednesday to a limited practice on Thursday to full participation on Friday. We’re expecting Moore to play his usual role this weekend but will look for further updates on his status.

Bears WR D.J. Moore (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That should have him on track to play vs. the Browns this weekend, but we'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Bears WR D.J. Moore (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He seemed to make it out of last week's game vs. the Lions okay, so we're assuming this is more of a maintenance day. But Moore's status bears monitoring over the next few days.

Bears TE Cole Kmet tallied 5 receptions for 66 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions. His 7 targets tied for second on the team, behind only WR D.J. Moore. That also marked his second straight 7-target game and fifth such outing among the past six games. That span has covered multiple games with both QBs, Justin Fields and Tyson Bagent. Kmet has averaged 6 receptions per game over that six-week span, making him an easy weekly starter at a position that's been tough for many fantasy teams all season. The Bears do get tough TE matchups the next two weeks in Cleveland and Arizona. But Jacksonville's Evan Engram had a good outing vs. the Browns on Sunday. And the Cardinals aren't scary against anyone. A Week 17 matchup with the Falcons has been positive for TE scoring.

Though Week 12's showdown between the Bears and Vikings didn't provide much entertainment, it did shed some light on Chicago's backfield situation. Rookie RB Roschon Johnson ended Monday night with a season-high 75 scrimmage yards on 15 touches. He played on 74.6% of the team's snaps, including all 13 third-down situations. Before this contest, Johnson had never played on over 50% of the Bears' offensive snaps and had just two games with more than 10 touches. His teammate and typical starter Khalil Herbert took a back seat and only played on 15 snaps in the game, seeing 6 carries and 2 catches for a combined 38 yards. Herbert did start but got less than half as many snaps as he played in his Week 11 return from IR -- despite D'Onta Foreman being inactive -- and lost work as a runner and receiver. And there's been no indication of a re-injury or other physical limitation for Herbert. It's just one game, but we'll have to at least enter Week 14 (after the bye) assuming Johnson will now work ahead of Herbert. We'll see about Foreman's availability, after he managed two limited practices ahead of Monday night's game.

Bears LB Tremaine Edmunds (knee) is active for today's game against the Lions. That marks his return after two games down for the injury that knocked him out early in Week 8. There's bound to be some re-injury risk, after Edmunds managed just one limited practice this week. But he's a lower-level IDP option. LB Jack Sanborn is also active. He was listed with an ankle issue and an illness, but the latter seemed to be the cause for his "questionable" tag. Edmunds' return should decrease Sanborn's playing time, though, and keep him from being a worthwhile IDP option.

On Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Bears RB Khalil Herbert has been officially activated off IR ahead of Week 11 vs. the Lions. Herbert's return to action will mark his first game back since injuring his ankle in Week 5 vs. the Commanders. This news lowers the fantasy upside of fellow RBs D'Onta Foreman and Roschon Johnson as we expect the Bears' backfield to be deployed in more of a committee approach. See where each player appears in our current RB rankings for Week 11.

Bears LB Tremaine Edmunds (knee) returned for a limited practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. We'll see about his status next week. LB Jack Sanborn is also questionable. He seemed to be headed in the right direction after a full Thursday practice but then missed Friday's practice with an illness. We'll check his status over the weekend.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle, shin) is not listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He got in full practices on Thursday and Friday and will play vs. the Lions this weekend for the first time since Week 5. RB D'Onta Foreman (ankle) is listed as questionable for that one after a limited week of practice. We're betting on Foreman playing, but it sure looks like Herbert is the healthier player right now. That makes him the preferred fantasy start in this backfield, although neither guy is an exciting play vs. Detroit's eighth-ranked RB defense.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle, shin) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He was a full-go all last week before missing the Thursday nighter vs. the Panthers, so we can't say yet that Herbert will definitely play vs. the Lions this weekend. We'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle, shin) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's been working his way back from the ankle injury, but the shin is new this week. He remains uncertain for Sunday's game vs. the Lions. We'll keep you updated on Herbert's progression throughout the week.

Bears WR D.J. Moore hauled in 5 of 9 targets for 58 receiving yards in Week 10 vs. the Panthers. Thursday’s output marks the fourth time in five weeks that he’s reached at least 50 yards receiving in a contest. Sure, it’s not as good as the 106.2 receiving yards per game Moore averaged through Week 5 with QB Justin Fields (right thumb) in the lineup, but fantasy managers can feel happy that they at least got flex-level production out of him over the past month. Fields’ return from injury in Week 11 vs. the Lions isn’t yet certain, but it would certainly be a huge boost for Moore’s outlook next week. It won’t be a cakewalk matchup, however. The Lions rank ninth in pass defense DVOA in 2023.

Bears QB Tyson Bagent completed 20 of 33 passes for 162 yards with 0 TDs or INTs in Week 10’s win vs. the Panthers. The UDFA rookie added very little as a runner on Thursday, totaling just 12 rushing yards on 6 carries in the contest. It’s likely that this will be the last game Bagent starts this season. QB Justin Fields (right thumb) started logging limited practice on November 3 and will have plenty of time to prepare for the Bears’ Week 11 showdown vs. the Lions. Be sure to keep an eye on the practice reports next week to track Fields’ progress. Still, it’s a solid spot for fantasy production, regardless of who starts. The Lions’ defense ranks as the eighth-best QB matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) was not activated from IR and won't play vs. the Panthers today. Herbert was listed as a full participant in practice all week, so he should be able to return for Week 11. His absence tonight leaves D'Onta Foreman as the favorite for lead duties against Carolina's 31st-ranked RB defense. He's carried 15+ times in three of the last four weeks and is a solid RB2 play tonight. Roschon Johnson will handle No. 2 RB duties and is on the RB3/Flex radar in this plus matchup. See where the Bears land in the updated Week 10 RB Rankings.

Bears LB Tremaine Edmunds (knee) is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Saints. It'll be his second straight missed game. Jack Sanborn played full time with Edmunds out and figures to do so again. Check our Week 10 rankings to see where the Chicago LBs sit.

Bears S Jaquan Brisker (concussion) has been a full practice participant this week and does not appear on the final injury report ahead of Thursday night's game against the Panthers. That means Brisker is ready to return after missing the past two games. Brisker had his highest tackle output the last time out and notched his first half-sack of the season the game before that. He has been a low-impact IDP overall this season, though, and sits in DB4 territory of our Week 10 rankings.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Panthers. He was a full participant in practice all week, so he seems likely to play. But the questionable tag is an indication that Herbert still isn't at 100%. Don't be surprised if he falls short of the 10.2 carries per game he averaged before going down -- especially considering how well RB D'Onta Foreman played over the past few weeks. Herbert is still worth considering as a RB3 or flex play vs. Carolina's 31st-ranked RB defense.
