Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) is active for today’s game against the Broncos. He was limited in practice all week after dealing with this groin issue all year. He shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups until he proves he’s healthy.

Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. He’s been dealing with this groin issue all year and shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups until he proves he’s healthy.

Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) has been limited in practice so far this week. “We’re taking it day-by-day,” Burton said Thursday. “I’m hoping by Sunday I’ll be good. Every day is a different day and some days I feel really good and some days I don’t feel good at all. It’s been a very humbling process. Today I'm feeling good. [But] it's been extremely frustrating." Make Burton prove that he's healthy before putting him in fantasy lineups.

Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) is inactive for tonight's game against the Packers. That leaves 2017 2nd-rounder Adam Shaheen as Chicago's lead pass-catching TE. He's an interesting play on the 1-game DFS slate but shouldn't be in Week 1 season-long lineups.

The Athletic's Zak Keeker doesn't expect WR Parris Campbell to be limited in Sunday's season-opener against the Chargers. The rookie missed most of August with a bum hamstring but flashed in the preseason finale with 3 catches for 42 yards. "[HC] Frank Reich and staff have been impressed at how quickly he's picked up the scheme," Keefer says. We wouldn't want to trust Campbell in fantasy lineups in his pro debut against a tough Chargers defense. But he's an intriguing bench stash -- even with Jacoby Brissett under center.

Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's opener against the Packers after being limited in practice this week. We'll get his official status around 7 pm ET tomorrow, but Burton isn't a recommended fantasy play even if active. If he's out, Adam Shaheen would be the best bet to serve as Chicago's pass-catching TE but would be just a DFS flier.

Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) remained limited in Tuesday's practice. He's looking iffy for Thursday night's opener against the Packers and will be a shaky fantasy play even if he suits up. Check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Bears TE Trey Burton is dealing with a "mild" groin strain that could make him a game-time decision for Thursday night's opener against the Packers, GM Ryan Pace told the Chicago Sun-Times on Monday. Burton sustained the injury at some point last week and missed practice time over the weekend. He was reportedly back on the field Monday, however. Even if Burton misses the opener, this doesn't seem like a longer-term concern. Make sure that you have an insurance option for Week 1.

Bears TE Trey Burton wasn't on the field Sunday for the portion of practice open to the media. We'll see whether that changes over the next few days, when Chicago will actually have to submit injury reports. It bodes ill, though, for Burton's status Thursday night status against the Packers. The Bears have been taking it easy with Burton this summer coming off sports hernia surgery. If Burton misses the game, Adam Shaheen would be Chicago's lead TE.

Colts WR Parris Campbell played in the team's preseason finale, catching 3 balls for 42 yards, including this explosive catch and run. The rookie missed almost all of August with a bum hamstring and just returned to practice on Monday, so it was good to see him out there. Campbell's upside took a big hit with QB Andrew Luck's retirement. But he was flashing early in training camp and should quickly emerge as a top 3 WR in Indianapolis. You could do worse as a late-round pick in your fantasy draft.

Colts WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) practiced on Monday for the 1st time since late July. That missed time is a big deal for a rookie -- even though he was reportedly balling out before going down. Throw in the QB downgrade from Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett, and Campbell doesn't look like an early-season fantasy option.

The Athletic's Zak Keefer tweets that there's "no guarantee" that WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) is ready for Week 1. The rookie has been sidelined for about 3 weeks now with his bum hammy, and HC Frank Reich hinted on Tuesday that Campbell won't practice this week. He was buzzing early in camp and should emerge as the Colts' #3 WR quickly once he gets healthy. But it doesn't look like Campbell will be an early-season fantasy option.

Colts WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) was set to return to practice but suffered a setback over the weekend, HC Frank Reich said. "He felt a little something yesterday,” Reich said. “We’re kind of re-evaluating that. Hopefully, that wasn’t too much. … We’ll have to wait a few more days to see if that settles down. Hopefully, we can get him back soon.” Campbell was shining early in camp but has now missed 10 straight practices. He needs to get back on the field soon if he wants to be an early-season fantasy option.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins has been sidelined the past couple of days with a foot injury. “Ongoing evaluation on him,” HC Frank Reich said Saturday. “Trying to determine the best course of action on his foot.” Wilkins' absence will gives RBs D'Onta Foreman and Jonathan Williams a chance to make up some ground on the depth chart. Those 3 guys could be fighting for just 1 roster spot behind Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines.

Colts WR Parris Campbell missed his 6th straight practice on Tuesday with a hamstring injury. The rookie was lighting up training camp early but needs to get back on the field if he wants to win a significant early-season role. We'll keep an eye on him. Campbell is still worth a look at his 12th-round ADP.

Bears TE Trey Burton, who underwent offseason sports-hernia surgery, has missed the last 3 practices. “It’s not a setback,” HC Matt Nagy said Monday. “It’s, more of, for us, I’m trying to protect him a little bit. I need him and we need him 100 percent for Week 1.” We'll keep an eye on this one, but it's obviously not ideal for a guy to be getting babied in early August.

Colts DE Jabaal Sheard recently had knee surgery to address an unspecified injury that has kept him out for nearly all of training camp, Mike Chappell of Fox59 reports. Sheard took part in the team's 1st camp practice back on July 25 but has been sidelined since then. Indy has offered no timeline yet for his return. We'll watch for more details on Sheard's situation. Kemoko Turay and Al-Quadin Muhammad are the 2nd-team DEs, according to the team's initial "unofficial" depth chart.

The Athletic's Zak Keefer raved about WR Parris Campbell, calling him a "draft-day steal" and saying he's "dripping with talent." Virtually everyone covering the Colts deemed Campbell a standout early in training camp. He's been sidelined with a hamstring issue the past few days, so we'll keep an eye on that situation. But it sure sounds like the rookie is set to play a significant role this year. "Campbell feels bigger than he’s listed, and he’s more polished than you’d assume," Keefer wrote. "[HC Frank] Reich has already indicated he plans to use him all over the field." Campbell is a nice upside pick at his 12th-round ADP.

Bears TE Trey Burton joined his teammates on the field Friday for the 1st practice of training camp, about 2 months after his sports hernia surgery, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports. Burton said he's "taking it slow," but starting camp on time means we shouldn't let the issue affect his fantasy outlook.

Bears GM Ryan Pace said Sunday that TE Trey Burton (groin) will not be placed on the PUP list to open training camp. Pace added, though, that the team "will be careful" with Burton early in camp. The 27-year-old TE missed spring workouts after undergoing sport-hernia surgery, but he should be a full-go come Week 1 barring a setback. Burton finished 8th among TEs in PPR points in his Bears debut last year.
