Shark Bites

Bears CB Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Saints. That marks the 4th straight game he has missed. With slot CB Buster Skrine (concussion) previously ruled out, it'll be the 4th straight week that Chicago has missed 2 of its top 3 CBs.

The Bears have downgraded LB Roquan Smith (elbow) to OUT for Sunday's game against the Saints. That leaves no clear full-time replacement behind him. It likely means full or near-full playing time for LB Danny Trevathan, though, making him a better IDP option.

The Bears have downgraded WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) to OUT for Sunday's game against the Saints. That boosts the fantasy football outlook for WR Anthony Miller.

Bears LB Roquan Smith (elbow) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. He missed practice all week after suffering the injury in the 1st quarter of the Week 17 loss to the Packers. Smith didn't return to that game. We'll see whether he's ready to play in this one. CB Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) is also questionable. He returned to a week of limited practices after missing the season's final 3 games. We'll see about his status Sunday.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Saints. The rookie didn't practice all week, so it looks like he's in real danger of missing this one. Mooney has averaged 7 targets from QB Mitchell Trubisky over the last 6 games, so his absence would free up opportunity for Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller and Co.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Packers. The rookie was limited in the final 2 practices of the week, adding some risk to his Week 17 outlook.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (shoulder) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Packers. He was a full-go on Wednesday but limited on Thursday and Friday. We’re expecting Kmet to suit up for this win-and-in game, but check back Sunday to make sure he’s active.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) and DL Akiem Hicks (ankle) are active for today's game against the Jaguars.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He tweaked that hammy in practice this week but was able to return to a limited practice on Friday. There’s a bit more risk here than usual, but Robinson remains a WR1 in the plus matchup.

Bears WR/RB Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. He might steal a few touches from RB David Montgomery but isn’t a viable fantasy play.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Jaguars today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. A-Rob was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a limited practice on Friday. There's some added risk here, but Robinson remains a WR1 in today's plus matchup.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) and DL Akiem Hicks (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Hicks put in just a limited Friday after missing the previous 2 days of practice. Mack went full, no practice and then limited over the 3 days. We'll check the status for both on Sunday morning. Starting CB Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) has been ruled out for the 2nd straight game.

Bears WR/RB Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. He seems unlikely to play after missing practice all week. If Patterson is inactive on Sunday, David Montgomery figures to handle close to 100% of the backfield work.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. It looks like he hurt his hamstring in practice on Wednesday or Thursday. He was listed as a full-go Wednesday, was sidelined on Thursday and returned to a limited practice on Friday. Check back at noon ET on Sunday to see if he's active for Week 16.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Vikings. He's ready for normal use in IDP lineups. Chicago will miss 2 of its top 3 corners, though. Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) and Buster Skrine (concussion) are both inactive. That only enhances an already solid-to-good matchup for Vikings WRs Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He's dealing with the same injury that had him questionable last week. Mack played through it at just slightly less than his normal snap share. He missed Thursday's practice but returned for a limited Friday workout. We'll check his status Sunday, but expect Mack to play.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Texans. He's OK to use as planned in IDP lineups.

11:12am EST 12/13/20

Bears WR Darnell Mooney is active for today’s game vs. the Texans. He missed practice this week due to a personal matter but is evidently ready to play. The rookie is just a fantasy flier.

The Bears "will have" OLB Khalil Mack for today's game against the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mack is officially questionable with a shoulder issue, so we'll confirm his status when the inactives come out. But expected to have Mack available for IDP use.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited Friday workout. We'll see about his status Sunday.
