Bears DE Akiem Hicks (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney was added to the injury report on Friday with a knee. He didn't practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Lions. Mooney was already a shaky fantasy play and is basically off the radar now that he's not at 100%. With WR Allen Robinson also dealing with a knee issue, WR Anthony Miller might be forced into a bigger role on Sunday.

Bears WR Allen Robinson is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Lions after leaving practice on Friday with a knee issue. HC Matt Nagy said afterward that it was a "precautionary matter" and that he doesn't believe it's serious. You can keep Robinson penciled into fantasy lineups for now -- but check back around noon ET on Sunday to make sure he's active.

Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Packers. QB Mitchell Trubisky gets the start in his place.

Bears DL Akiem Hicks (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Packers. Chicago has called him a game-time decision. The late kickoff and low-ceiling scoring matchup vs. Green Bay makes Hicks not worth waiting on for most IDP lineups.

Bears RB David Montgomery (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday night’s game against the Packers’ 31st-ranked RB defense. Montgomery has averaged 14.7 carries and 5.3 targets in 6 games since RB Tarik Cohen went down.

Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. So it’ll be Mitchell Trubisky back under center for Chicago. He chucked for 432 yards, 5 TDs and 2 INTs in plus matchups vs. the Lions and Giants to open the season before getting benched in Week 3. Trubisky brings some rushing upside but is still just a lower-end QB2 for Week 12.

Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) did not practice on Wednesday, while QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) was a full-go. Chicago has 2 more practices before Sunday night's game against the Packers, but Trubisky looks like the early favorite to be under center for that one.

Bears RB David Montgomery has cleared the concussion protocol. Barring a setback, he'll play against the Packers on Sunday night. Montgomery has been inefficient for most of the season but has averaged 14.7 carries and 5.3 targets in 6 games since RB Tarik Cohen went down.

The Bears head toward Week 12 with injuries to both QBs. Nick Foles sustained a hip injury late in last Monday night's loss to the Vikings. Mitchell Trubisky entered that week with a shoulder injury and is still working back from it. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, HC Matt Nagy declined to say Monday who will start Sunday against the Packers, adding that a switch to Trubisky is "on the table." Tyler Bray came on to finish the Week 10 game after Foles' injury.

Bears QB Nick Foles hurt his right hip late in Monday night's loss to the Vikings and left the field on a cart. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Foles "is actually OK" and that initial testing found no fracture in the hip. Foles is headed for further testing, and the Bears get a Week 11 bye. If Foles does miss further time, Garafolo says there's a chance Mitchell Trubisky's injured shoulder will be ready after the bye. Tyler Bray replaced Foles for the final few plays on Monday night.

Bears DL Akiem Hicks left Monday night's game against the Vikings with a hamstring injury and is doubtful to return. He'll get a Week 11 bye to rest it. We'll see how Hicks looks for Week 12.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. He was limited in practice all week, but we never heard any concern about his status. We're expecting A-Rob to play his usual role tonight.

Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (COVID, concussion) was a full participant in Monday's practice and is on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. QB Garrett Gilbert played well vs. the Steelers last time out, but Dalton still projects as an upgrade for the Cowboys offense.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (knee) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Vikings. Robinson managed limited practices all week and appears likely to play. Check to see if Darnell Mooney or Anthony Miller is available as an insurance option in your fantasy football league.

The Bears have ruled RB David Montgomery (concussion) out for Monday night's game against the Vikings. That leaves the backfield to Cordarrelle Patterson and Ryan Nall. Patterson has been consistently playing more snaps than Nall and lining up in the backfield more than he has at WR. We'd bet on Patterson leading Bears in RB touches on Monday night. Patterson has only topped 4 carries once through a season and a half in Chicago and never exceeded 7. He did garner 10 and 11 carries in consecutive games with the 2018 Patriots. Lamar Miller seems likely to be in the mix as well, assuming the Bears elevate him from the practice squad. It's also worth noting that HC Matt Nagy is turning over play-calling duties to OC Bill Lazor for this game.

Bears RB David Montgomery (concussion) remained sidelined on Friday. .He’s looking like a long shot to get cleared in time for Monday night’s game against the Vikings. That’d leave RB Ryan Nall atop the depth chart. Chicago could also use Cordarrelle Patterson more out of the backfield. And we’ll see if RB Lamar Miller is elevated from the practice squad.

Bears LB Roquan Smith was limited in Thursday's practice because of a back issue. That's the 1st injury report of the week for Chicago, which plays Minnesota on Monday night. We'll watch Smith's situation through the weekend to sit if he's in danger of missing Week 10.

Bears RB David Montgomery (concussion) did not practice on Thursday. He has an extra day to get cleared for Monday night's game vs. the Vikings, but fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him at this point. Montgomery's absence would leave Chicago's backfield to some combination of Ryan Nall, Cordarrelle Patterson and potentially practice-squad call-up Lamar Miller.

Bears RB David Montgomery has officially entered the league concussion protocol, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. If he can't make it back for Monday night's game against the Vikings, Chicago's backfield would be turned over to Ryan Nall and Cordarrelle Patterson.
