 Latest Bears Player Notes
Oct 17 2018 - Prince Amukamara
  CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) practiced Wednesday on a limited basis after leaving Sunday's game with Miami due to his injury. His status for Sunday is uncertain. Bryce Callahan and rookie Kevin Toliver have played in his place.


Oct 17 2018 - Eric Kush
  G Eric Kush (neck) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. Despite the injury suffered against Tampa Bay, he had 31 snaps in Sunday's game as he split time with rookie James Daniels at left guard. Daniels actually had more snaps (38) than Kush for the first time.


Oct 17 2018 - Allen Robinson
  WR Allen Robinson (groin) practiced Wednesday on a limited basis due to an injury suffered against Miami.


Oct 17 2018 - Marcus Cooper
  CB Marcus Cooper (hamstring) missed Wednesday's practice and hasn't practiced since Week 3.


Oct 17 2018 - Khalil Mack
  LB Khalil Mack (ankle) missed Wednesday's practice and is day-to-day. His status for Sunday's game is uncertain. Aaron Lynch replaced Mack in practice.


Oct 15 2018 - Khalil Mack
  LB Khalil Mack sprained an ankle early in Sunday's loss at Miami and was held without a sack.


Oct 15 2018 - Mitchell Trubisky
  QB Mitchell Trubisky threw for 316 yards and had three second-half TD passes, one for 9 yards to Trey Burton, 12 yards to Allen Robinson and 29 yards to Anthony Miller in Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss at Miami.


Oct 10 2018 - Anthony Miller
  WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) practiced Wednesday. It was his first full practice since suffering a dislocated shoulder against Arizona Sept. 23. He is expected to be available to play against Miami.


Oct 10 2018 - Eric Kush
  G Eric Kush (neck) practiced Wednesday on a limited basis and is expected to be available for Sunday's game.


Oct 10 2018 - Marcus Cooper
  CB Marcus Cooper (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday and has been out since Sept. 20.


Oct 10 2018 - Prince Amukamara
  CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) practiced Wednesday for the first time since suffering the injury Sept. 23, but his status for Sunday's game with Miami is uncertain. The Bears used Bryce Callahan at his spot against the Bucs, and then moved Callahan to his usual nickel spot in the slot in passing situations while putting rookie cornerback Kevin Toliver on the field.


Oct 10 2018 - Bryan Witzmann
  G/T Bryan Witzmann was signed after the Bears put injured linebacker Sam Acho (torn pectoral muscle) on injured reserve. Witzmann started 13 games last year for the Chiefs, and is familiar with head coach Matt Nagy's offense. He was released in September this season, before being picked up by the Vikings. He was then cut by the Vikings after he lost a battle for the starting left guard spot to Cameron Erving. Witzmann is 6-foot-8, 313 pounds and played at South Dakota State. The Bears' interest in Witzmann is for depth, especially at tackle where Bradley Sowell is their only experienced reserve.


Oct 8 2018 - Sam Acho
  LB Sam Acho (torn pectoral) was placed on reserve/injured by the Bears Monday (Oct. 8). He is eligible to be designated for return and begin practicing after missing at least six weeks and can play after eight weeks.


Oct 5 2018 - Bryan Witzmann
  G Bryan Witzmann had his contract terminated by the Vikings Friday (Oct. 5).


Sep 30 2018 - Danny Trevathan
  LB Danny Trevathan had an interception in the Bears' rout of the Buccaneers on Sunday. "It feels good," Trevathan said. "It feels like we're a complete team. It's the first time we've done that for four quarters straight."


Sep 30 2018 - Khalil Mack
  LB Khalil Mack became the first player with strip-sacks in four straight games since the Colts' Robert Mathis in 2005. He also had a tipped pass that resulted in Danny Trevathan's interception. "We're getting better every week and that's what you want to see," Mack said. "To see the guys in the back end making plays, that's what you want to see. And being in a position to affect the quarterback to make them make those throws, it's a good feeling, especially going into the bye."


Sep 30 2018 - Tarik Cohen
  RB Tarik Cohen caught a 9-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter on Sunday against the Buccaneers. He finished with seven receptions for 104 yards.


Sep 30 2018 - Taylor Gabriel
  WR Taylor Gabriel took a shovel pass on the jet sweep in from 3 yards for a touchdown and later caught a 3-yard TD pass in the third quarter of the Bears' win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. Gabriel finished with seven catches for 121 yards.


Sep 30 2018 - Trey Burton
  WR Trey Burton caught a 39-yard bomb down the sideline from Mitchell Trubisky in the first quarter of the Bears' blowout win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.


Sep 24 2018 - Mitchell Trubisky
  QB Mitchell Trubisky answered his critics in a spectacular, even historic way. After being heavily scrutinized for struggling in three games, Trubisky experienced a breakout type of game by throwing six touchdown passes Sunday against the beleaguered Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense in a 48-10 victory at Soldier Field.


Sep 28 2018 - Jonathon Mincy
  CB Johnathon Mincy was signed by the Bears to their practice squad Thursday (Sept. 27). He had been released by the Bears from their practice squad Tuesday.


Sep 26 2018 - DeAndre Houston-Carson
  DB DeAndre Houston-Carson (back, forearm) went through a full practice Wednesday for the first time since his preseason injuries and is expected to be available for Sunday's game with Tampa Bay.


Sep 26 2018 - Anthony Miller
  WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) suffered a dislocated shoulder against Arizona and did not practice Wednesday. It's unlikely he'll play this week.


Sep 26 2018 - Marcus Cooper
  CB Marcus Cooper (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday after a practice injury late last week kept him out of last Sunday's game at Arizona. His status is uncertain for Sunday. Normally, Cooper would have been Amukamara's replacement.


Sep 26 2018 - Prince Amukamara
  CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday and his status for Sunday's game is uncertain after suffering an injury during last Sunday's game. He's being replaced by Bryce Callahan and Kevin Toliver.


Sep 26 2018 - Jonathon Mincy
  CB Johnathan Mincy was released from the practice squad by the Bears Tuesday (Sept. 25).


Sep 24 2018 - Anthony Miller
  WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) and CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) are both day-to-day after leaving the game with injuries Sunday.


Sep 24 2018 - Prince Amukamara
  CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) and rookie WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) are both day-to-day after leaving the game with injuries Sunday.


Sep 24 2018 - Cody Parkey
  PK Cody Parkey missed his first kick of the season against the Cardinals, hitting on 3 of 4 field goals. He is now 7 of 8 for the season.


Sep 24 2018 - Jordan Howard
  RB Jordan Howard scored his first touchdown of the season Sunday, a 1-yard run in the third quarter. The rushing touchdown was the 16th of his career.


Sep 24 2018 - Mitchell Trubisky
  QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 24 of 35 passes for 220 yards with one interception, one lost fumble and a 73.5 passer rating Sunday. He has completed almost 70 percent of his passes this season (72 of 104).


Sep 24 2018 - Khalil Mack
  OLB Khalil Mack is tied for the NFL lead with four sacks and tops the league with three forced fumbles. "I don't know if I would have expected him to put together a string of three games like this, but it doesn't shock me," coach Matt Nagy said. Mack posted a team-high five tackles and two sacks and also recorded three quarterback hits, one forced fumble and one tackle for loss Sunday against the Cardinals.


Sep 23 2018 - Mitchell Trubisky
  QB Mitchell Trubisky withstood a lost fumble and an interception in the first half. He finished 24-for-35 for 220 yards, and hit a key 39-yard pass to Allen Robinson to trigger a 67-yard TD drive. He threw for 20 yards on a 59-yard drive to the winning field goal.


Sep 23 2018 - Cody Parkey
  PK Cody Parkey's 43-yard field goal with 4:31 left provided the points to give the Bears (2-1) sole possession of first place in the NFC North for the first time since the next-to-last week of the 2013 season, and they pulled above .500 for the first time in four years.


Sep 23 2018 - Khalil Mack
  LB Khalil Mack's strip-sack produced a critical turnover near the red zone as the Bears rallied for a sloppy 16-14 road victory. Mack now has four sacks and three strip-sacks in his first three games despite being double-blocked much of the time.


Sep 23 2018 - Bryce Callahan
  CB Bryce Callahan made a key fourth-quarter interception of Josh Rosen Sunday with the Cardinals on the verge of field- goal range as the Bears rallied for a sloppy 16-14 road victory.


Sep 19 2018 - Danny Trevathan
  LB Danny Trevathan collected a pair of sacks and eight tackles in Sunday's win over Seattle to earn NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. "Like I said, (the award) could happen to anyone: Prince (Amukamara), Akiem (Hicks), Khalil (Mack), those guys played their tails off, so I'm just happy it was me. And I'm just going to keep the guys ready," Trevathan said.


Sep 19 2018 - Jordan Howard
  RB Jordan Howard has only 29 carries through the first two games but could be in line for more carries Sunday. "Those guys, just like quarterbacks, you want to try to get in a rhythm," said coach Matt Nagy. "The offensive line, running backs, tight ends, they all realize how important it is to get that running game going."


Sep 19 2018 - DeAndre Houston-Carson
  DB DeAndre Houston-Carson (forearm) was the only Bears player on the injured list, and practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday.


Sep 19 2018 - Kyle Long
  G Kyle Long (ankle) practiced Wednesday and his situation isn't as unpredictable as last week when he had soreness. Long missed two straight practices last week and then practiced Saturday before playing Monday. "He's actually feeling better after this game than he was last week," coach Matt Nagy said.


Sep 19 2018 - Leonard Floyd
  LB Leonard Floyd will take a long look at playing with a smaller cast on his broken hand this week. He said downsizing will help. The hand has been healing for about a month. "Most definitely wanna downsize, at least have something with my fingers free or some of my hand free," Floyd said.


Sep 19 2018 - Danny Trevathan
  LB Danny Trevathan earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors after registering his first career two-sack performance in Monday's 24-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. He also had six tackles.


Sep 12 2018 - Roquan Smith
  LB Roquan Smith was in for only eight plays against Green Bay and sees no reason now why his role can't be expanded. He's physically fine, and feels comfortable enough in the defense. "I felt great," Smith said. "I knew the game plan going into the game so I felt like I can do that to the best of my ability and I pretty much knew everything. So it wasn't anything where I was like, 'Oh I don't know what to do in these cases and scenarios.'"


Sep 12 2018 - Prince Amukamara
  CB Prince Amukamara suffered an unspecified "upper body" injury in Sunday's game but is fine and practicing. He had returned to the game after the injury.


Sep 12 2018 - Cody Whitehair
  C Cody Whitehair continues to try to improve his shotgun snaps, but had a few high snaps at key times Sunday night. It's unlikely rookie James Daniels will move in at center, causing Whitehair to move to guard. "He had 70 snaps and had a couple a little high," offensive line coach Harry Hiestand said. "We want to eliminate those, obviously." At least it's better than during training camp. "We were in the middle of training camp and we were really struggling and switched the technique," Hiestand said. Coaches suggested Whitehair start gripping the ball near the end of the ball instead of down toward the middle. "It's more consistent," Hiestand said. "He's done well with it."


Sep 10 2018 - Bryan Witzmann
  G Bryan Witzmann was signed by the Vikings on Monday after being released by te Kansas City Chiefs last week. Witzmann started 13 games at left guard for te Chiefs last season and appeared in 11 games in 2016 with Kansas City.


Sep 10 2018 - Akiem Hicks
  DE Akiem Hicks made his first career sack against the Packers. He forced a fumble on the sack, but Green Bay recovered. Hicks also had three tackles. "We challenged him, and I thought he stepped up," Bears coach Matt Nagy said. "You could see he made a couple big plays in there. He's a force. Even trying to double-team him, it's hard. He splits the double team."


Sep 10 2018 - Roquan Smith
  LB Roquan Smith made a sack of DeShone Kizer on his first NFL play. The Bears limited Smith because of a tender hamstring and his lack of practice time in the defense. He finished with three tackles and a hurry in his first career action.


Sep 10 2018 - Eddie Jackson
  S Eddie Jackson was one of the defenders standing up to take heat after Aaron Rodgers authored a comeback win. "The whole team got lazy," Jackson said. "We got too complacent, especially on the defensive side of the ball. We didn't finish. We came out the first half swinging. The energy was there. The second half I felt like the energy was low. Everybody got complacent, and we lost focus that we still had a game to finish."


Sep 10 2018 - Danny Trevathan
  LB Danny Trevathan suffered a minor back injury in the game but returned to play.
