The Chicago Sun-Times' Patrick Finley wrote CB Kyle Fuller has "stood out" during Bears camp.
Squarely on the roster bubble after missing all of last season and seeing the team decline his fifth-year option, Fuller has earned praise for his work this offseason. "I think he’s healthier now," coach John Fox said. "He’s getting back into it. I like the way he’s looked." Fuller likely is still behind newcomers Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper on the depth chart, but he is clearly making his case for a roster spot. If he shows well in the preseason, the Bears could look to move him. Aug 3 - 12:30 PM

The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer believes Bears CB Kyle Fuller "may be on the outside looking in" for a roster spot.

Fuller missed all of 2016 with a knee injury, but DC Vic Fangio suggested late in the year the corner could have returned if he wanted. That type of comment suggests the Bears have almost given up on the former first-rounder, but Fangio did say he will be given a chance to compete during camp. With newcomers Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper locked into the starting lineup, Fuller will be nothing more than a sub-package player even if he makes the roster.

Bears DC Vic Fangio said CB Kyle Fuller will be given a chance to compete.

Fuller missed all of 2016 with a knee injury, although Fangio suggested the corner could have returned late in the season had he wanted. The issue led to the Bears not picking up Fuller's fifth-year option, but Fangio is not ruling out him winning a job in camp. "It's wide open," Fangio said. "I hope to see Kyle healthy and out there running around. Moving like he's 100 percent." Despite the positive comments, the smarter money is on Fuller being cut or traded before the season.

Bears declined CB Kyle Fuller's fifth-year option for 2018.

Fuller spent all of last year on injured reserve and now faces competition from free agent signings Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper. Even when he's been healthy, Fuller has never lived up to the lofty expectations that were placed on him as a first-round pick in 2014. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune opined that Fuller may not even make the Bears' final roster this summer. The 25-year-old will earn just over $1.7 million in the final year of his rookie contract.
Apr 29 - 8:50 PM

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs does not expect Bears CB Kyle Fuller to make the final roster.

Biggs still expects Chicago to hold onto Fuller through the offseason program to see what he can do or perhaps drum up trade interest. Fuller did not play a snap last season after undergoing a minor knee scope in August, and DC Vic Fangio questioned his desire to get back on the field late in the season. The Bears did move on from Tracy Porter, but they have signed three corners already this offseason and are likely to add more in the draft.

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs expects the Bears to hang onto CB Kyle Fuller "to see what he can do" before moving on.

Fuller missed all of last season on I.R. after undergoing a minor knee scope in August. DC Vic Fangio called him out for showing no desire to return to the field late in the year. But with the Bears' needs at cornerback, it makes sense to hold Fuller at his cheap salary either until replacements are found or they see that he can/can't play at a high level.
Feb 22 - 10:47 AM

Bears did not activate CB Kyle Fuller (knee) from injured reserve, ending his season.

The deadline to activate Fuller was Wednesday. "It's disappointing," Fuller said. "You want to be out there. I guess I've just got to listen to my body. I'm not quite there yet." Fuller said he still has pain in his surgically-repaired knee, but DC Vic Fangio intimated Fuller did not really want to return this season. Fuller, of course, denied those claims, but it seems clear this marriage is headed for divorce. The Bears will likely try to trade Fuller this offseason.

Bears DC Vic Fangio indicated CB Kyle Fuller (knee, I.R.) doesn't have the desire to return this season.

Wednesday is the final day the Bears have to make a decision on activating Fuller from I.R. after he returned three weeks ago, but it doesn't like that's going to happen. "Any time a guy's hurt, there's three stages to getting back to the field," Fangio said. "One is you've got to get medical clearance. Two, the player's got to say he's ready to go and feels confident and he's champing at the bit to go play. A has happened. B hasn't. So C is a non-issue." The Bears are expected to try to trade Fuller for whatever they can get for him this offseason.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 10:14:00 AM

Bears CB Kyle Fuller (knee, I.R.) returned to practice Wednesday.

It opens a three-week window for the Bears to decide if they want to activate Fuller as their designated for return player. Fuller has yet to play this season after having a knee scope in August. He was the 14th pick in 2014.
Wed, Nov 30, 2016 10:44:00 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Sep 11, 2016 11:40:00 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.
