Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune gave a Monday update on the Bears' 1st-round pick from last year: "As it stands, as I understand #Bears WR Kevin White is not going to return from IR this season. So, it's going to be [CB Kyle] Fuller or no one." That followed a tweet in which Biggs said the team will evaluate Fuller to see if he's ready to return from IR. Each team can designate only 1 player to return from IR during a given season. Fantasy owners likely weren't counting on White for any further production this season, but take note if you're been stashing the youngster in an IR slot. Fuller, by the way, doesn't carry much IDP intrigue right now but could help the team D.
Bears rookie CB Kyle Fuller is expected to play Sunday against New England despite breaking his right hand and suffering a hip pointer in the Week 7 loss to Miami. Playing with a cast will obviously affect Fuller's ability to secure INTs, which makes him tough to like on the IDP front. Elsewhere on the Chicago D, starting LBs Lance Briggs (ribs) and Jon Bostic (back) are doubtful for Sunday despite putting in limited practices all week.
The Bears picked Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller 14th overall in the NFL draft. Fuller figures to play among the team's top 3 corners right away and could push Tim Jennings for a starting job on the edge. 33-year-old Charles Tillman also returns on just a 1-year contract on the other side after missing 8 games last season. He could be in for decreased playing time. We'll see what Fuller's role will be before projecting him into our 2014 IDP rankings.
