The Chicago Tribune has clarified its report that Kyle Fuller (knee, injured reserve) has been designated as the Bears' return player, saying it's just an option.

Fuller will be evaluated later this week. Beat writer Brad Biggs is continuing to report that Kevin White isn't an option to return, and that it will be Fuller or no one.

Bears designated CB Kyle Fuller (knee, injured reserve) their return player.

This opens Fuller's three-week practice window. It's unclear if Fuller will be ready to return for Sunday's game against the Titans. It's a rare bit of good news for a comically injured, suspended and flat-out bad team.
Nov 21 - 2:58 PM

Bears placed CB Kyle Fuller on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Fuller underwent a "scope" in mid-August, but has healed much slower than expected. The Bears, who are outright deceitful with injury information, may not have disclosed the true nature of Fuller's operation. It's another gut punch for the league's most injured defense. Fuller played 1,038 effective snaps last season. He could be designated as the Bears' "return" player off injured reserve, but for now Chicago must move forward with Tracy Porter, Jacoby Glenn and Bryce Callahan as its top three corners. It's not a good situation. Fantasy players need to keep targeting the Bears' defense.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: This bodes very well for the upside of Marvin Jones in Week 4. Not only is he seeing the largest target share among Lions WRs, he also leads the team in aDOT and should once again be productive. Jones is still a tad underpriced across the industry and can be targeted in any format.
Sep 27 - 4:52 PM

Bears declared CB Kyle Fuller, CB Cre'Von LeBlanc, S Deon Bush, ILB Nick Kwiatkoski, C Eric Kush, WR Cameron Meredith, and DE Cornelius Washington inactive for Week 2 against the Eagles.

Fuller was listed questionable, but still isn't ready after his August knee scope.
Sep 19 - 7:06 PM

Bears declared CB Kyle Fuller (knee) inactive for Week 1 against the Texans.

Chicago will have the services of Tracy Porter, but they are extremely thin at corner. DeAndre Hopkins should find plenty of success at home Week 1.
Sep 11 - 11:40 AM

Bears RCB Kyle Fuller (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 1.

After practicing on a limited basis all week, Fuller is shaping up as a game-time decision against the Texans. His backup is rookie Deiondre' Hall.
Sep 9 - 1:52 PM

Bears CB Kyle Fuller (knee) returned to practice Monday.

Fuller was likely limited just three weeks removed from a knee scope, but it is a welcome development for a secondary which also saw Tracy Porter (concussion) return to the practice field. Fuller said his goal is to play this week. That might be too optimistic, but he should return soon.
Sep 6 - 8:48 AM

The Bears could be without their top three corners Week 1 against the Texans.

Kyle Fuller is extremely doubtful after undergoing a knee scope in mid-August, Tracy Porter is recovering from a concussion, and Bryce Callahan is struggling with a hamstring injury. Porter and Callahan will likely be back, but they might not be huge upgrades over replacement starters Jacoby Glenn and Deiondre’ Hall. Despite improvements to the front seven, the Bears still have several question marks in the secondary.

Bears coach John Fox revealed Thursday that CB Kyle Fuller recently underwent a knee scope.

Fox called Fuller "week to week," but this could jeopardize his Week 1 status. The Bears are dangerously thin at corner behind Tracy Porter, and inexperienced at safety with sophomore Adrian Amos and special teamer Harold Jones-Quartey projected to start. The 14th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Fuller has been a disappointment through two seasons. There's been buzz at Bears camp that Fuller could lose his job to fourth-round rookie Deiondre' Hall.
Aug 18 - 11:22 PM

Bears GM Ryan Pace seemed to suggest CB Kyle Fuller's knee injury could force him to miss significant time.

"He’s kind of had this nagging injury that we thought maybe he could play with, but as time went on, you could tell it was affecting his movement skills," Pace said. "So he’s been getting evaluated over the last couple of days and I’m optimistic that’s something we can get ahold of to make him a better player." Fuller did not travel with the team to New England for this week's joint practices, but there did not seem to be much concern about the injury. That has certainly changed. Very thin at corner, the Bears cannot afford to be without Fuller for any significant time.

The Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell said Bears CB Kyle Fuller (knee) is battling to keep his starting job.

With little talent around him, Fuller would appear to be locked into a starting job, but Campbell said he is "fighting to keep his starting spot." Fuller was benched in a game early last season, but he bounced back with a solid showing down the stretch. It would be surprising if he did not open the season as a starter. Fuller is likely to sit out the second preseason game with a knee injury, but he should be ready for Week 1.
Aug 15 - 10:05 AM

Bears CB Kyle Fuller was benched in the second half of the team's Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

Fuller was beaten by Larry Fitzgerald for a touchdown and committed a bad pass interference on John Brown. Alan Ball has not been much better than Fuller, however, and the Bears are unlikely to turn to career special teamer Sherrick McManis on the outside. He should keep his starting job, but the Bears will be a pass defense to target for fantasy purposes all season.

Bears RCB Kyle Fuller (knee) is active for Thursday's Week 13 game against the Lions.

Fuller hasn't been able to finish three of the last five games and sustained a knee sprain just four days ago. It's not ideal circumstances to face Calvin Johnson. The Bears will also be without LB Lance Briggs (groin). The rest of their inactives: CB Terrance Mitchell, LB Darryl Sharpton, OL Eben Britton, DE Trevor Scott, WR Chris Williams and DT Jeremiah Ratliff.

Bears RCB Kyle Fuller (knee) remains on track to play in Thursday's game against the Lions.

Fuller sustained a minor knee sprain on Sunday. It's unclear if he's 100 percent, upgrading Calvin Johnson's already tasty matchup even further.
