Bears CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) is doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Cowboys.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) is out for Thursday night's game against the Cowboys. WR Javon Wims stepped in to play 89% of Chicago's offensive snaps and post a 5-56 line on 6 targets with Gabriel out on Thanksgiving. Wims is on the WR4 radar for Week 14. WR Anthony Miller remains the superior fantasy play, though.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and TE Ben Braunecker (concussion) are out for Thursday's game against the Lions. Javon Wims figures to join Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller in 3-WR sets. Chicago is down to Jesper Horsted and J.P. Holtz at TE. Neither is a viable fantasy play, even in Thanksgiving DFS.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Ben Braunecker are in the concussion protocol. Both guys are unlikely to be cleared in time for Thursday's game against the Lions. WR Javon Wims figures to replace Gabriel in the starting lineup. We'll see where Chicago goes at TE with Trey Burton on IR and Adam Shaheen still sidelined with a foot injury.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. Even in Sunday’s plus matchup at home for the Giants, Trubisky is just a QB2.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) put in a full practice on Wednesday. So he should be available for this weekend's game against the Giants -- and HC Matt Nagy said a healthy Trubisky is still the starter. Even in this plus matchup, though, Trubisky remains a low-end QB2.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Monday that QB Mitchell Trubisky has been diagnosed with a right hip pointer. The injury reportedly occurred late in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Rams. Trubisky played the 3rd quarter and most of the 4th before getting yanked for QB Chase Daniel. “Every decision that was made, it had zero to do with his play," Nagy said. "It was completely based off his injury and where he was at.” A healthy Trubisky will remain Chicago's starter, but you should continue to stay away from this situation in fantasy football.

The Bears pulled QB Mitchell Trubisky out of Sunday night's game late in the 4th quarter. The team reported that Trubisky has a hip injury, but we didn't see the injury while watching the game. Trubisky also watched the final drive while pacing the sideline, as opposed to getting treatment or examination. Trubisky was 24 of 43 for 190 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT when he left. We'll see where this goes.

Bears RB David Montgomery (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Rams. He’s a risky fantasy play after rolling his ankle in practice on Wednesday.

Bears RB David Montgomery is headed for a game-time decision for tonight's game against the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Montgomery missed practice Thursday with his ankle sprain before returning to a limited Friday workout. The late kick obviously makes him risky to wait on for fantasy football lineups. If you need to wait for Montgomery, then check for Rams, Chiefs or Chargers options on the waiver wire as insurance. If Montgomery doesn't play, Tarik Cohen could be in for a big volume boost.

The Bears on Saturday placed TE Trey Burton on IR with his calf injury, ending a season that was injury marred from the start. Burton hit September limited by a groin issue after offseason core-muscle surgery. He totaled just 14 catches in 8 games and never topped 20 yards in a single week. He'll be just 28 at the start of the 2020 season, though, with 2 years remaining on his contract. TE Adam Shaheen is also out or Sunday night's game against the Rams, leaving Ben Braunecker as Chicago's lead TE. There will be some upside to Shaheen once he's back from his foot injury.

Bears TEs Trey Burton (calf) and Adam Shaheen (foot) are out for Sunday night’s game against the Rams. That leaves Ben Braunecker as Chicago’s top TE, but he’s still not much of a fantasy option on this struggling offense.

Bears RB David Montgomery (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Rams. He “lightly rolled” his ankle on Wednesday, per HC Matt Nagy, didn’t practice on Thursday and was limited on Friday. The late kickoff puts fantasy owners in a tough spot here. Hopefully we get an update on Montgomery Sunday morning. His absence would leave Chicago’s backfield to Tarik Cohen and Ryan Nall.

Bears RB David Montgomery was held out of Thursday's practice with an ankle injury. HC Matt Nagy said his rookie "lightly rolled" the ankle in Wednesday's practice. That doesn't sound like a serious injury, but we can't consider Montgomery a lock for Sunday night's game against the Rams. Check back tomorrow for another update on his status. Montgomery's absence would leave Chicago's backfield to Tarik Cohen and Ryan Nall.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan left Sunday's win over the Lions in the 1st half with a nasty left elbow injury that put his arm in a sling. ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports that HC Matt Nagy said the team wouldn't know the extent of the injury for "a couple days." Trevathan will have an MRI Monday. Nick Kwiatkoski filled in for Trevathan and would take over the starting spot should Trevathan miss further time.

Bears RB David Montgomery is expected to get "a lot of carries" against the Chargers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie got the rock just twice in last week's loss to the Saints, and it sounds like HC Matt Nagy wants to rectify that. Montgomery averaged 15.8 carries over the previous 4 games, so it's not like we haven't seen Chicago feature him. There's upside here vs. the Chargers' 21st-ranked RB defense.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He ends up missing just 1 game with his dislocated left shoulder. The injury was to his non-throwing arm, so it shouldn’t impact his passing. But it could definitely limit his rushing.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will start against the Saints today. The left shoulder issue shouldn't impact Trubisky's throwing, but it might limit his rushing. He's just a low-end QB2.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He exploded for 3 TDs in his last outing but totaled just 3 catches for 35 scoreless yards over the first 2 weeks. Gabriel remains just a fantasy flier.

The Bears list QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. He put in 3 full practices, though, so we’re expecting him to get the start. Of course, Trubisky is just a low-end QB2 vs. a hot New Orleans defense.
