Bears re-signed RCB Prince Amukamara.
A solid-not-spectacular starter for last year's Bears, Amukamara is a sticky cover guy with the ability to excel in both man and zone. He wound up facing a high number of No. 1 wideouts last year and held up well. Amukamara's downfall is his lack of ball skills and penchant for injuries; he's lasted 16 games once in seven NFL seasons and has just one interception over the past three years. Nevertheless, his re-signing gives the Bears a chance to keep their underrated secondary intact with Kyle Fuller on the transition tag, slot CB Bryce Callahan tendered, and Eddie Jackson and Adrian Amos returning at safety.

Bears CB Prince Amukamara (ankle) wasn't listed on the final injury report for Week 3 against the Steelers.

He'll be ready to rock and roll after sitting out the first two weeks with an ankle injury. Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant aren't going to make life easy for him in his season debut.

Bears CB Prince Amukamara (ankle) got in a limited practice Wednesday.

Amukamara has been sidelined since suffering an ankle injury in the third preseason game. He was limited all last week, as well, but he was not able to get on the field against the Bucs. The Bears are hopeful that will change this week.

Bears CB Prince Amukamara (ankle) is questionable for Week 2 against the Buccaneers.

He's been limited at practice but should be a go for Sunday's game in Tampa. Amukamara will have a tough assignment this week going against stud wideouts Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson.

Bears CB Prince Amukamara (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

It's the first time he's practiced since suffering an ankle injury in Chicago's third preseason game. Amukamara will have his work cut out for him going against Buccaneers receivers Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson if he plays this week.

Bears CB Prince Amukamara (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 1.

The Bears will have to dip into their depth for a starting corner across from Marcus Cooper. Amukamara was signed to a one-year, $7 million deal in March. The loss of Amukamara is an upgrade to Julio Jones' Opening Day matchup.

Bears CB Prince Amukamara (ankle) is in a walking boot and considered day to day.

Amukamara has been injured pretty much the entire summer, first battling a hamstring injury then hurting his ankle on the very first play from scrimmage in the third preseason game. The Bears are counting on Amukamara and Marcus Cooper to be the starting corners after signing both in March.

Bears CB Prince Amukamara left Sunday's third preseason game with an ankle injury and is doubtful to return.

He recorded one tackle before exiting early in the first quarter. Playing on his third team in as many seasons, Amukamara will start opposite Marcus Cooper when healthy.

Bears signed CB Prince Amukamara, formerly of the Jaguars, to a one-year, $7 million contract.

His contract is fully guaranteed. A 2011 first-round pick of the Giants, Amukamara spent 2016 in Jacksonville on a one-year deal. The door closed on his return when the Jags gave A.J. Bouye $26 million guaranteed. Injury plagued for much of his six-year career, Amukamara will be playing on another prove-it deal in Chicago. Although Amukamara has missed a ton of games, his play has remained steady, if far from elite. He's a needed experienced addition for a Bears secondary that was undermanned and injury riddled in 2016.

Jaguars GM David Caldwell said impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara will hit the open market.

Amukamara settled for a one-year, $5 million deal last March, but he will be looking for a long-term deal this time around after a solid season in Jacksonville. The Florida Times Union believes he will command $8-9 million a year.

The Florida Times Union believes impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara will command $8-9 million annually.

Amukamara settled for a one-year, $5 million deal last offseason but rebuilt his value after playing well and mostly staying healthy in 2016. The Jaguars recently brought in Amukamara's former Giants coach Tom Coughlin as executive vice president. Former Giants DC Perry Fewell was also hired as DBs coach. Perhaps those moves will convince Amukamara to stay in Jacksonville.

ESPN's Mike DiRocco reports the Jaguars want to re-sign impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara.

Signed to a one-year, $5 million deal last offseason, Amukamara played well over 871 defensive snaps and established himself as the starter opposite Jalen Ramsey over the second half of the season. He will cost more to retain on a long-term deal this time around, but the Jags have ample cap space to keep him.

The Jaguars are expected to be without CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) for Week 3 against the Ravens.

It's a plus to Joe Flacco's matchup. Without Amukamara in Week 2, the Jags were utterly torched by Philip Rivers for four touchdown passes while ceding a mammoth game to Travis Benjamin and a long touchdown to Tyrell Williams.

Jaguars RCB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 2 at the Chargers.

Amukamara played 64-of-68 snaps in the opener, with Dwayne Gratz playing the four he missed, so it appears Gratz will take over opposite LCB Davon House with rookie Jalen Ramsey manning the slot. Jacksonville presents a sneaky-good matchup for Philip Rivers, even without Keenan Allen (knee) playing.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said newly-signed CB Prince Amukamara is adjusting well to the defensive scheme.

"That’s one of the things we liked on film because he did play a lot of press coverage," Bradley said. "There are little nuances in how we teach it, but he’s picked up on it real quick." Amukamara will compete with Davon House for the starting job opposite first-round pick Jalen Ramsey, but at the very least he should have a role in sub packages.
