Bears RB David Montgomery suffered a neck injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Giants and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for updates.

Update: Montgomery returned in the 2nd half.

Bears OLBs Khalil Mack (knee) and Robert Quinn (ankle) are active for today's game against the Giants. Mack played through a questionable tag in Week 1 and should be good to go for normal IDP use. Quinn will be playing his 1st game and sat out training camp with his ailment. So it's tough to know whether he'll see full playing time. He'll be risky for IDP lineups, though the Giants present sack upside. Having both active helps the Chicago team D.

The Bears and RB Tarik Cohen agreed late Saturday to a 3-year extension worth $17.25 million in new money, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Looks like we can count on at least a couple more years of ho-hum PPR production.

Bears OLBs Khalil Mack (knee) and Robert Quinn (ankle) are both questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. Mack put in all limited practices for the 2nd straight week. He played through a questionable tag in Week 1, so we'd bet on him doing so again. Quinn sat out Week 1 with the ankle sprain that cost him nearly all of training camp. But he graduated to a full practice Friday. Quinn's just a low-level IDP option, and it's tough to know whether he'd get full playing time if active. We'll check the status on both edge guys Sunday morning.

Bears DL Akiem Hicks sat out practice Thursday with an illness. We'll see how serious it is, but we'd bet on Hicks making it back for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that Bears WR Allen Robinson has asked the team "about a possible trade." This report followed observations that Robinson had removed Bears references from his social media. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, however, that Robinson's agent (Brandon Parker) says neither he nor his client has requested a trade. The specifics here won't matter much, of course, unless Chicago actually decides to deal Robinson, who is in the final year of his contract. We'll keep an eye out for that. Until then, keep playing Robinson as normal.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is active for today's game against the Lions after entering the day questionable with a knee issue. As expected, OLB Robert Quinn is inactive with his ankle injury. He came in doubtful after not practicing all week.

Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. And NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said this morning that Montgomery is expected to handle a “full workload.”

Bears RB David Montgomery is expected to play against the Lions today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Montgomery is listed as questionable with his groin injury, but Rapoport reports that the Bears plan to give him a full workload. The groin issue still makes us a bit nervous, but it's certainly an upside matchup if Montgomery is near full health. Montgomery's availability chips away at RB Tarik Cohen's fantasy value. Cordarrelle Patterson (questionable, knee) will also play, according to Rapoport.

Bears OLB Robert Quinn is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions. He's dealing with an ankle injury that cost him most of training camp. We'll see when the big-money free-agent addition can return. OLB Khalil Mack (knee) is questionable. Mack put in limited practices every day this week, so we'd bet on him playing.

Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday, so we’re expecting Montgomery to play. This is a nice matchup vs. Detroit, but the groin injury suffered just a couple of weeks ago adds risk.

Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice, putting him on track to play against the Lions this weekend. Montgomery still comes with elevated risk after suffering that groin injury just a couple of weeks ago -- although this is a favorable matchup.

Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly gives him a shot to play against the Lions this weekend. Chicago notably didn't add to its backfield since Montgomery went down, which is another hint that he'll play Week 1.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Monday that he'll announce the team's starting QB sometime between Monday and Wednesday next week, ahead of the regular-season opener. Nagy had previously intimated he wouldn't name a starter ahead of game day but called Monday's news a clarification. Camp reports haven't had either Nick Foles or Mitchell Trubisky taking a noticeable lead in the competition. Neither would make for all that interesting a fantasy option, though Trubisky at least sports rushing upside.

Bears RB David Montgomery is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with his groin injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Chicago's opener is 17 days away. So Montgomery has a shot to be ready for that one -- although it's more likely that he misses the first game or 2. He'll return as the Bears' clear lead ball-carrier and is still worth drafting in RB3 range. We'll see if the team adds a RB in the coming days. If not, it'll be Tarik Cohen, Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce in the backfield.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said RB David Montgomery is dealing with a groin strain. No word on the severity -- but this is relatively good news after what looked like a potentially season-ending injury. We've still moved Montgomery down the RB rankings and will continue to look for updates on his status.

Bears RB David Montgomery was carted off the practice field on Wednesday after suffering a non-contact injury to his left leg. Sirius' Adam Caplan hears that the team does not believe the injury is to Montgomery's knee. Still, this sounds like a potentially serious issue. Chicago doesn't have a viable replacement for Montgomery on the roster, with the diminutive Tarik Cohen, Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce next up on the depth chart. Cordarrelle Patterson has reportedly been taking reps at RB throughout training camp but wouldn't be a full-time replacement. Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman would make sense for Chicago if Montgomery is forced to miss a bunch of time.

The Bears signed K Cairo Santos. He'll compete for the starting gig with incumbent Eddy Pineiro. Avoid the situation in upcoming fantasy drafts.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams has opted out for the 2020 season. This one has huge fantasy implications, as Williams was set to battle with rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire for the majority of the RB work in 1 of the game's top offenses. Kansas City's depth chart behind CEH now reads: Darwin Thompson, DeAndre Washington, Darrel Williams and Elijah McGuire. Thompson and Washington are both undersized, change-of-pace types. Williams and McGuire have more size but look like career journeyman. So Edwards-Helaire is now a virtual lock to lead the 2020 Chiefs backfield in touches -- and he'll likely dominate them. That's a pristine spot to be in, with QB Patrick Mahomes and a HC in Andy Reid who's produced a top-16 PPR RB in 16 of his 21 seasons as a HC, including 10 top-10 finishers. Check out Edwards-Helaire's updated projections and spot in the RB rankings.

Eagles WR Marquise Goodwin has opted out of the 2020 season. Philly acquired him from San Francisco for a swap of 6th-round picks back in April -- but Goodwin was unlikely to play more than a situational deep-threat role. There's little fantasy impact here.
