Chicago Bears Injury Updates

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 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 OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Just like last week, he sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday with the ankle injury and then returned for a limited Friday workout. Mack still played 84% of the snaps in the loss to the Patriots. We'd bet on full playing time once again this week.

Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters Wednesday that OLB Khalil Mack is "day-to-day" with the ankle injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to Miami. "We're just going to continue to keep an eye on it and be more cautious than anything," the coach said, according to the team website. Don't be surprised if we see little-to-no Mack on the practice field this week. But he played 79.5% of the snaps against the Dolphins -- a season-high 62 total snaps in the OT game. So we'd bet on Mack playing in Week 7. We'll certainly watch the star pass-rusher's status into the weekend.

Bears OLB Leonard Floyd left Saturday night's game against the Broncos with a left hand injury. According to the Chicago Tribune, Floyd was in a hard cast after the game and headed for further testing on Sunday. HC Matt Nagy, however, said "I don't think so" when asked whether Floyd (or TE Adam Shaheen) had suffered a fracture. We'll see where this goes. A healthy Floyd would be the team's lead pass-rusher.

Bears S Adrian Amos (hamstring) and DT Eddie Goldman (hip) are doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Goldman isn't much of an IDP option even when healthy, but his absence can only help Cincinnati RB Giovani Bernard. Amos has been a top fantasy DB when healthy but is expected to miss his 2nd straight game. The D will also likely miss OLB Pernell McPhee, who is doubtful with a shoulder injury.

Bears S Adrian Amos is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Niners with a hamstring injury. Make other plans for your IDP lineup, if you haven't already. On the positive side, ILB Danny Trevathan finished the week not even listed on the injury report. He's ready to return after losing 3 games to a calf injury.

Bears LB Danny Trevathan put in a limited practice Wednesday for the 1st time since the team's Week 9 bye. That obviously bodes well for a return to action from the calf injury that has cost him 3 games, though we'll continue to watch his status through the week.

Bears S Adrian Amos missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Eagles. We'll watch his participation throughout the week.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles with the calf injury that cost him the past 2 games. That means another start for Nick Kwiatkoski inside next to Christian Jones. Both continue to be playable in IDP leagues. DE Akiem Hicks (knee) is questionable for the game. He returned for a limited practice Friday after missing the previous 2 days but told the Chicago Tribune that it was "just a little bit of maintenance" and that he expects to play. Hicks is worth waiting on for your IDP lineups.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions with the calf injury that kept him out last week. Trevathan still has yet to practice since suffering the injury, making him look like a weak bet for Sunday. We knocked him down the LB rankings.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan is inactive for today's game against the Packers because of a calf injury. That leaves Christian Jones as the lead ILB in an upside matchup. Expect Nick Kwiatkoski to start in Trevathan's place. He's a fringe IDP option for deeper leagues as well.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers with a calf injury. He missed the whole week of practice, despite having the bye following the last game he played. That makes Trevathan look like a risky IDP option for this week. We'll update his status Sunday.

Bears ILB Nick Kwiatkoski (chest) is active for today's game against the Panthers. That'll mark his 1st action since suffering the injury in Week 2. There's tackle upside in Jerrell Freeman's vacated spot, but Kwiatkoski's no more than a low LB3 for fantasy football owners.

Bears ILB Nick Kwiatkoski will miss his 4th straight game today against the Ravens with a chest injury. He returned to limited practices this week, which bodes well for a Week 7 return against Carolina. Christian Jones should start next to Danny Trevathan against Baltimore, with Trevathan the only 1 you'll want to use in your IDP lineup.

Bears LB Nick Kwiatkoski (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He put in limited practices all week after being sidelined since a Week 2 chest injury. IDP owners should seek a better option, as it's tough to know what Kwiatkoski's playing time will look like even if he's active.

Bears LB Nick Kwiatkoski left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a pectoral injury. He's questionable to return. Kwiatkoski started in place of LB Jerrell Freeman, who went on IR with a torn pec.

The Bears have placed ILB Danny Trevathan on IR after he ruptured the patellar tendon in his right knee Sunday. The injury is, at least, to the opposite leg from the knee that Trevathan had reconstructed while a Bronco 2 years ago. Then, the LB suffered 2 fractures and a dislocated kneecap in his left leg. We'll see how this recovery goes in the offseason, but it's the kind of injury that could keep him off the field into next year. According to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson, the Bears are expected to play LB John Timu next to ILB Nick Kwiatkoski, who stepped into the lineup against the Titans in place of suspended LB Jerrell Freeman. We'll see what Timu can do, but he'll need to prove value before you should consider him at IDP option. Kwiatkoski's an option ahead of Timu but also needs to prove he can approach the value of either veteran the young duo is replacing. Expect the Bears to present a nice rushing matchup for opposing RBs the rest of the way.

Bears LB Danny Trevathan left Sunday's loss to the Titans with a right knee injury. HC John Fox didn't have specifics on it after the game but said it looked "real serious," according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. The obvious implication here is a season-ending injury. We'll see what the team announces Sunday night or Monday. Chicago started Nick Kwiatkoski next to Trevathan on Sunday, the 1st game of LB Jerrell Freeman's 4-game PED suspension. He tallied just 4 tackles (2 solo) as only 1 Bear reached 6 and none surpassed that number. Kwiatkoski's a potential pickup here for deep IDP leagues, but don't look for significant value from Bears ILBs the rest of the way. We could see more tackles available for a stronger OLB group and the DBs.

Bears OLB Leonard Floyd left the field on a cart, strapped to a backboard in Sunday's loss to the Giants. He went to a local hospital, but the team announced that he was later released and would travel back to Chicago with his teammates. We'll keep an eye out for further info heading into a Week 12 matchup with the Titans.
