|Jan 3 2018 - Kyle Fuller|
CB Kyle Fuller was all but out the Halas Hall door after a knee injury sidelined him all last season.
Considering that and an unimpressive second season in 2015, the Bears didn't pick up Fuller's fifth-year option and now it's going to backfire as he will be a free agent. Fuller finished with 22 passes defended, 15 more than any other Bear. He tied for the team high with two interceptions and showed a physical side never before seen, as he tied for the team high with 60 unassisted tackles.
|Jan 3 2018 - Tarik Cohen|
RB Tarik Cohen's addition to the offense provided another dimension and a counter punch to Jordan Howard.

|Jan 1 2018 - Cameron Meredith|

|Dec 28 2017 - Lamarr Houston|
OLB Lamarr Houston has proven he can still play. Getting cut first by Chicago and then by Houston had led to questions about his abilities following a pair of bad knee injuries. With Pernell McPhee on injured reserve now, the injury-plagued Bears outside linebacker group must rely again on Houston. He's trying to prove he deserves a contract for next year.
|Dec 28 2017 - Bradley Sowell|
T Bradley Sowell (back) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday with an injury suffered against Cleveland. Sowell is day-to-day.
|Dec 28 2017 - Adam Shaheen|
TE Adam Shaheen (chest) practiced Wednesday on a limited basis after missing the last two games with an injury suffered while making a touchdown catch against Cincinnati. Shaheen also practiced last week on a limited basis, but was unable to go on game day. He'll likely be a game-time decision.
|Dec 28 2017 - Bobby Massie|
T Bobby Massie (knee) missed Wednesday's practice with what head coach John Fox had called a "slight" knee injury. Massie is day-to-day and likely a game-time decision.
|Dec 28 2017 - Josh Sitton|
G Josh Sitton (ankle) missed Wednesday's (Dec. 27) practice after sitting out last week's game. Sitton is day-to-day and likely a game-time decision. He would likely be replaced by Tom Compton, who returned for a full practice Wednesday after missing last week's game with a concussion.
|Dec 26 2017 - Adam Shaheen|
TE Adam Shaheen (chest) missed his second straight game.
|Dec 26 2017 - Adrian Amos|

G Josh Sitton (ankle) missed Sunday's game with Cleveland due to an injury suffered against Detroit.
|Dec 26 2017 - Tom Compton|
G Tom Compton (concussion) missed Sunday's game with Cleveland and remains in the NFL concussion protocol.
|Dec 24 2017 - Zach Miller|
TE Zach Miller returned to Soldier Field on Sunday as he continues to recover from an injury that nearly cost him his left leg. Miller walked to the sidelines and addressed the crowd in an interview shown on the video board. He has undergone eight surgeries since suffering a torn artery while dislocating his knee trying to make a touchdown catch in New Orleans in late October.
|Dec 24 2017 - Jordan Howard|
RB Jordan Howard's touchdowns were his eighth and ninth this season, and gave the second-year running back four in his last three games.
|Dec 24 2017 - Mitchell Trubisky|
QB MitchellTrubisky, from Mentor, Ohio, connected on 14 of 23 passing attempts for 193 yards and rushed for 44 yards as he met his hometown team for the first time. Cleveland passed on drafting him with the No. 1 overall pick earlier this year. "To play in the snow on Christmas Eve against your hometown team, it's kind of a dream come true," Trubisky said. "It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed every moment. I soaked it in with all my teammates."
|Dec 21 2017 - Zach Miller|
TE Zach Miller (knee), who is on injured reserve, was named recipient of the Good Guy Award from the local chapter of the Pro Football Writers Association.
|Dec 21 2017 - Josh Bellamy|
WR Josh Bellamy (foot) went through a full practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday, and it appears he will be ready to play in Sunday's game.
|Dec 21 2017 - Tom Compton|
G Tom Compton (concussion) continues to go through the NFL concussion protocol and his availability is uncertain. He did practice on a limited basis for the second straight day on Thursday and could be a game-time decision. If Compton can play, it's likely Hroniss Grasu would be at center with Compton and Cody Whitehair at the guard spots. If he's unable to play, swing tackle Bradley Sowell may get the start.
|Dec 21 2017 - Josh Sitton|
G Josh Sitton (ankle) did not practice for the second straight day on Thursday (Dec. 21) and appears unlikely to be available for Sunday's game with Cleveland. He will be a game-time decision and could be replaced in the lineup by Tom Compton or Cody Whitehair.
|Dec 20 2017 - Pernell McPhee|
LB Pernell McPhee (shoulder) went on injured reserve Wednesday (Dec. 20) due to an injury suffered Dec. 3 against San Francisco. McPhee sat out the win over Cincinnati the following week and tried to play through the injury last week, but left the 20-10 loss to the Lions.
"It's one he tried to go with," head coach John Fox said. "He gutted it up and actually played pretty well in the Detroit game. But he kind of retweaked it and with two games remaining I think it's probably better for him and us that we put him on injured reserve."
McPhee hasn't played a full season in Chicago in three years after signing a five-year deal worth $40 million, including $16 million in guaranteed money. He missed the first seven games last year while recovering from knee surgery, and missed two games in 2015 with knee problems. McPhee also had knee surgery in training camp this season. He has played in 36 of a possible 48 Bears games and has 14 sacks.
Without McPhee, the Bears may be forced to use Christian Jones more in pass-rush situations on the outside. He has played some downs in that position in recent weeks. Lamarr Houston has four sacks in three weeks since returning with the Bears and playing McPhee's position.
|Dec 20 2017 - Adrian Amos|
S Adrian Amos (hamstring) is ready to play again after missing three games. Amos had been one of the team's most improved players while starting in Games 4 through 12, but was hurt Nov. 26 against Philadelphia at a time when injuries struck several Bears at that position. Amos is likely to play unless he has a setback in practice this week.
|Dec 20 2017 - Josh Sitton|
G Josh Sitton (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday and his status for Sunday's game is in question. He left with an injury against Detroit and didn't return. He could be replaced by either Cody Whitehair, Bradley Sowell or Tom Compton if unable to play.
|Dec 20 2017 - Josh Bellamy|
WR Josh Bellamy (foot) practiced Wednesday on a limited basis after suffering the injury against Detroit. He is day-to-day and his status will be decided later in the week.
|Dec 20 2017 - Tom Compton|
G Tom Comtpon (concussion) is in the NFL protocol after leaving Sunday's game with the injury. Compton's absence would be a huge blow for the line if Josh Sitton is also out. Compton was able to practice on Wednesday on a limited basis, so the possibility exists he'll get through the protocol by Sunday.
|Dec 20 2017 - Chris Prosinski|
S Chris Prosinski (concussion) practiced Wednesday on a limited basis after a head injury against Detroit. Prosinski will be a late-week decision and is in the NFL protocol.
|Dec 20 2017 - Adam Shaheen|
TE Adam Shaheen (chest) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday after missing last week's game with an injury suffered in the victory over Cincinnati on Dec. 10. More on his status will be known later in the week.
|Dec 20 2017 - Jonathan Anderson|
LB Jonathan Anderson was signed on Wednesday. Anderson has already played in 10 games this season for the Bears and has been on and off the practice squad.
|Dec 20 2017 - Kendall Wright|
WR Kendall Wright has 17 catches for 188 yards the last two weeks. It's apparent Wright has become Mitchell Trubisky's go-to guy. Wright has stepped forth after Dontrelle Inman became more of an outside threat. With teams protecting the outside more, Trubisky is working more over the middle and Wright is a good possibility as a receiving threat. ... Another good option is Inman. The Bears should be able to attack in this game downfield, and Inman would be a potential target.
|Dec 18 2017 - Mitchell Trubisky|
QB Mitchell Trubisky has his worst game, throwing three interceptions. Two came on poor decisions, one into coverage and one an errant toss on the run.
|Dec 18 2017 - Adam Shaheen|
TE Adam Shaheen (chest) missed the game due to an injury suffered the previous week in a win over Cincinnati. Shaheen's status will be updated later in the week.
|Dec 18 2017 - Adrian Amos|
S Adrian Amos (hamstring) missed a third straight game. He had been questionable prior to the game and had practiced on a limited basis, so it's possible he will return to play Cleveland on Sunday.
His status will be updated later in the week.
|Dec 18 2017 - Pernell McPhee|
LB Pernell McPhee (shoulder) left early in the game with Detroit when he aggravated a shoulder injury suffered two weeks ago against San Francisco.
McPhee was replaced after 15 plays by Lamarr Houston. He is day-to-day and his status will be updated later in the week.
|Dec 18 2017 - Chris Prosinski|
S Chris Prosinski (concussion) suffered a head injury trying to make a tackle on a pass early against Detroit and left the game.
He is in the NFL concussion protocol and his availability for the game with Cleveland on Sunday is uncertain. Deon Bush replaced Prosinski.
|Dec 18 2017 - Josh Sitton|
G Josh Sitton (ankle) left Sunday's game. Starting center Cody Whitehair moved to right guard when Sitton left and Hroniss Grasu came in at center.

|Dec 18 2017 - Tom Compton|
G Tom Compton (concussion) suffered a head injury early against Detroit and left the game. He is in the NFL concussion protocol and his availability for this week against Cleveland is uncertain.
Bradley Sowell replaced Compton at right guard.
|Dec 18 2017 - Lamarr Houston|
LB LaMarr Houston's surprising saga continues. In three games since coming in off the street following his departure from the Texans, Houston has four sacks.
|Dec 18 2017 - Tarik Cohen|
KR Tarik Cohen's 90-yard kickoff return was negated by what coaches felt was a sketchy holding call on DeAndre Houston-Carson.
"The guys (coaches) upstairs felt it was a good block, it was behind. It was a stretch in the jersey, so that's the way it was described to me," coach John Fox said. Cohen had a 67-yard punt return called back against San Francisco three weeks ago and has had 10 total plays of 10 yards or longer that have been negated by penalties this season.
|Dec 16 2017 - Jordan Howard|
RB Jordan Howard has 12 100-yard games since the start of last season, tops in the NFL.
|Dec 16 2017 - Chris Prosinski|
S Chris Prosinski suffered a concussion in the first quarter.
