Chicago Bears news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: With Langford on the mend and Ka'Deem Carey inactive, rookie Jordan Howard will carry the load the rest of the game unless Langford has a miraculous recovery.

Fantasy Tip: With Carey on the mend it will be rookie Jordan Howard getting a golden opportunity behind Jeremy Langford, and perhaps ahead of Langford if he continues to struggle. It's a situation worth monitoring closely for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: The good news for Hoyer is that Alshon Jeffery is healthy and available, but he is only a low-end QB2 at this point. Cutler should be reserved in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: It was touch and go with Jeffery this week, but he practiced Friday and is ready to go.

Chicago Bears DB Bryce Callahan (concussion), RB Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring), QB Jay Cutler (thumb), DB Kyle Fuller (knee), DT Eddie Goldman (ankle), OL Eric Kush and LB Danny Trevathan (thumb) are inactive for the Week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery was listed as questionable on the injury report but was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Sept. 23. He should be viewed as a risky WR2 option this week, especially with Brian Hoyer starting at quarterback in place of Jay Cutler.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the lack of reps, you can expect Hoyer to look Jeffery's way early and often against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3, assuming Jeffery can play through a knee injury. If Jeffery is on the field, he has WR2 upside in all formats.

Chicago Bears LB Danny Trevathan (thumb) has been ruled out for Week 3. RB Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) and DT Eddie Goldman (ankle) are listed as doubtful. SS Adrian Amos (concussion), CB Bryce Callahan (concussion), CB Kyle Fuller (knee), OT Bobby Massie (toe), CB Tracy Porter (knee), FS Chris Prosinski (calf), OG Josh Sitton (shoulder), DT Will Sutton (elbow) and LB Willie Young (knee) are listed as questionable. Carey, Goldman and Trevathan did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23. Amos, Callahan, Fuller, Porter, Prosinski and Young were limited during practice, while Massie, Sitton and Sutton fully participated in practice. CB Sherrick McManis (wrist) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Brian Hoyer likely will be the starting quarterback for the Bears in Week 3 but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery did not practice Thursday after being limited Wednesday, so this appears to be a legitimate questionable tag. While he is expected to play, owners will be in a bind if he can't as Chicago plays Sunday night. Eddie Royal is a logical replacement who is available in many leagues. Jeffery will also likely be catching passes from Brian Hoyer for the foreseeable future. Consider Jeffery a dice-roll WR2 this week.

Chicago Bears S Adrian Amos (concussion), CB Bryce Callahan (concussion), RB Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring), DT Eddie Goldman (ankle), LB Lamarr Houston (knee) and LB Danny Trevathan (thumb) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 22. CB Kyle Fuller (knee), OT Bobby Massie (toe), CB Tracy Porter (knee), FS Chris Prosinski (calf), OG Josh Sitton (shoulder), DT Will Sutton (elbow) and LB Willie Young (knee) were limited participants, and CB Sherrick McManis (wrist) was a full participant.
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 12:24:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Jeffery will be able to practice Friday, Sept. 23, before making any decisions on their starting lineup. His value probably will take a hit if he plays because Brian Hoyer is expected to start at quarterback. Jeffery is a risky option for owners at this point but could still be a starting candidate in some leagues.
