Eddie Royal (toe) remained sidelined Thursday.

Royal, who is no longer effective, is always injured.
Dec 8 - 2:37 PM

Eddie Royal (toe) is not practicing Wednesday.

Royal has been a total disaster since signing a three-year deal with Chicago before last season. He's been hurt far more often than not. Royal missed Week 13. Josh Bellamy and Cameron Meredith are the Nos. 1 and 2 receivers.
Dec 7 - 3:09 PM

Eddie Royal (toe) is inactive for Week 13 against the 49ers.

Royal wasn't expected to play after not practicing all week. Matt Barkley spread it around against the Titans last week, but Cameron Meredith should see the biggest increase in targets. The rest of Chicago's inactives are QB Jay Cutler, S Adrian Amos, DB De'Vante Bausby, DL Jonathan Bullard, OL Cornelius Edison, and DB Delondre Hall.
Dec 4 - 11:34 AM

Eddie Royal (toe) is questionable for Week 13 against the 49ers.

Royal didn't practice this week and seems like a long shot for Sunday. He actually had negative yards in his last game. Royal won't be a fantasy option even if he suits up this week.
Dec 2 - 1:54 PM

Eddie Royal (toe) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

It's not a good sign for his Week 13 availability. Royal can be safely ruled out if he doesn't return to at least a limited practice on Friday.
Dec 1 - 2:49 PM

Eddie Royal (toe) is not practicing Wednesday.

Royal has been battling the toe for weeks. He'll be fine to face the 49ers.
Nov 30 - 2:31 PM

Eddie Royal (toe) is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Titans despite not practicing all week.

It would be surprising if Royal suited up, but he is a veteran who probably does not need the practice reps. Even if he plays, Royal is not fantasy viable with Matt Barkley under center.
Nov 26 - 9:33 AM

Eddie Royal (toe) remained sidelined Thursday.

The always-injured receiver is looking doubtful for Sunday's horrorshow with Matt Barkley under center.
Nov 24 - 3:38 PM

Eddie Royal (toe) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Of course. The Bears are already laughably thin on offense with Alshon Jeffery (PED suspension), Jay Cutler (shoulder) and Zach Miller (foot) all sidelined. Losing Royal would just be adding insult to injury (literally). Tennessee's defense should be a mighty-fine streamer this week.
Nov 23 - 5:49 PM

Eddie Royal caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards in the Bears' Week 11 loss to the Giants.

The Bears needed more from their slot receiver with Alshon Jeffery suspended and Zach Miller injured. Royal will have some 5-6 catch games, but has absolutely zero upside in fantasy leagues.
Nov 20 - 6:19 PM

Eddie Royal (toe) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Royal will be fine for Sunday's game against the Giants. With Alshon Jeffery beginning his four-game suspension, Royal will be something of a co-No. 1 receiver with Cameron Meredith. He's a WR4.
Nov 17 - 4:21 PM

Eddie Royal secured one-of-two targets for 24 yards Sunday in the Bears' Week 10 loss to the Buccaneers.

Royal’s return to the lineup was a quiet one. His only catch came on the game’s final play. Jay Cutler didn’t have it today and neither did Royal. Both players will be well off the fantasy radar next week against the Giants.
Nov 13 - 5:51 PM

Eddie Royal (toe) is active for Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

He's back in the lineup after missing two games with a toe injury. Chicago's Week 10 inactives include TE Daniel Brown, CB Bryce Callahan, CB Deiondre' Hall, S DeAndre Houston-Carson, OL Eric Kush, LB John Timu and DL Mitch Unrein. Eddie Goldman (ankle), Pernell McPhee (knee) and Tracy Porter (knee) were questionable heading into Sunday but are all active.
Nov 13 - 11:47 AM

Eddie Royal (toe) is questionable for Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

Royal was limited at practice this week but should play Sunday against Tampa Bay. The injury-prone wideout is off the fantasy radar.
