Bears WR Allen Robinson (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Packers. He put in a limited practice on Thursday and was a full-go on Friday. So he should be ready for Sunday.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday night’s showdown with the Rams. That’s a plus matchup, but Trubisky also brings a good deal of risk coming off that throwing-shoulder injury.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It confirms that he's on track to return for Sunday night's game against the Rams. That's a good matchup vs. the #21 QB defense, but Trubisky is a risky fantasy play in his 1st game back from a throwing-shoulder injury.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Wednesday that he "feels strong" about QB Mitchell Trubisky's chances of returning from his shoulder injury for Sunday night's game against the Rams. "But I’ve got to see more” in practice, Nagy added. Chicago could certainly use its starting QB in a tough spot this weekend. We'll keep a close eye on his practice participation over the next few weeks.

Bears DE Akiem Hicks (Achilles’ tendon) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He began the week not practicing but returned to the field Friday and should be in IDP lineups for this upside matchup.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start today but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

Bears DL Akiem Hicks is questionable for Sunday's game at the Giants with an Achilles' injury. Hicks returned to a full practice Friday, though, after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. He looks likely to play, but we'll check his status Sunday morning.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He put in a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start on Sunday but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

Bears DE Akiem Hicks missed practice Wednesday and Thursday because of an Achilles' tendon issue. Here's what HC Matt Nagy told the Chicago Sun-Times on Thursday: "His is precautionary. It's just one of those things. We just felt like with where he's at, it would be good to give him a day and help him out there." DC Vic Fangio added: “He’s got a way to rally about himself and can kind of ignore whatever bumps and bruises he has going. He’s a tough guy.” It sounds like the Bears expect him to play. We'll check Hicks' Friday participation and game status. If he's OK for Sunday, the matchup with the Giants presents a high IDP ceiling.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Bears QB Chase Daniel is expected to start this weekend's game against the Giants. QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday, but the team "wants to play it safe" with him, according to Garafolo. Daniel played conservative football in Detroit on Thanksgiving, completing 27 of 37 passes for 230 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. In a tougher matchup in New York, he's just a low-end QB2 for Week 13.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. HC Matt Nagy reiterated that Trubisky's shoulder injury isn't a "long-term issue," but it's looking like he'll miss at least 1 more game.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday’s game against the Lions. A-Rob is sitting just 49th among WRs in PPR points per game. He’ll benefit from the expected absence of CB Darius Slay but still isn’t more than a WR3.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (ankle, groin) put in a full practice Wednesday. That marks the 1st full practice since Week 6 for Mack, who missed the past 2 games. The star pass-rusher appears on track to return for Sunday's game against the Lions, which would only help make fantasy's top defense a stronger play against an up-and-down Detroit offense.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to play against the Lions this weekend after missing the previous 2 games. A-Rob is sitting 49th among WRs in PPR points per game and figures to see a lot of CB Darius Slay on Sunday. He's no more than a low-end WR3 for Week 10.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is out for today's game against the Bills. That takes out a prime IDP option, but it doesn't stop the Chicago D from being the week's strongest play vs. Buffalo QB Nathan Peterman.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Bills. Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller will again serve as Chicago’s top 2 WRs and are both lower-end WR3 options in fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bears OLB Khalil Mack is "unlikely to play" against the Bills today, "though Chicago wants to see him pregame before making any final determination." IDP owners can wait for his status at 11:30 a.m. ET before making lineup decisions, but expect to not have Mack available. The Bears' team D remains a strong option, however, against Nathan Peterman.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game at Buffalo with the ankle injury that cost him last Sunday's game against the Jets. Mack again missed 2 days of practice before putting in a limited workout Friday. That's been his schedule the past 2 weeks. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bills. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. It’d make a lot of sense for Chicago to hold Robinson out of a game they can win without him. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It wouldn't make much sense for Chicago to push him out there for an easily winnable game vs. Buffalo this weekend. Look for Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller to again serve as the Bears' top 2 WRs for that one.
