CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Bears expect RCB Kyle Fuller (knee) to play Thursday against the Lions.
He would be doing so after not practicing all this week. Fuller has slowed down considerably since a fast start to the season, and coughed up a touchdown to Mike Evans last week. Expect him to do battle early and often with Calvin Johnson on Thanksgiving. Fuller will need that knee at 100 percent. Nov 26 - 11:42 PM

Bears CB Kyle Fuller (knee) and WLB Lance Briggs (groin) could be game-time decisions for Thursday's game against the Lions.

Fuller is dealing with a "minor" MCL sprain. It would be extremely surprising were he able to suit up on the short week.
Nov 25 - 1:59 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Bears CB Kyle Fuller suffered a "minor MCL sprain" against the Buccaneers Week 12.

Fuller was limping badly before halftime and was ruled out shortly after the break. Even if the sprain is minor, it is highly unlikely Fuller will be ready to go against the Lions on Thanksgiving day. His status will be updated when the Bears issue their first practice report on Monday.
Nov 23 - 5:29 PM

Bears RCB Kyle Fuller exited Week 12 against the Bucs with a knee injury.

Fuller was struggling before halftime and was ruled out shortly after the break. Al Louis-Jean replaced him at corner.
Nov 23 - 2:53 PM

Bears RCB Kyle Fuller was forced from Chicago's Week 8 game against the Patriots with an aggravation of his hip injury.

Fuller was deemed "questionable" after going down in the first half, but wasn't back after the break. Fill-in Al Louis-Jean has had a very rough go of it in Fuller's place. A prolonged absence for their first-round corner would be a huge blow for the collapsing Bears.

Bears RCB Kyle Fuller will play through a broken hand and hip pointer in Sunday's Week 8 game at Foxboro.

We're interested to see how effective he's capable of being against Tom Brady & Co. Hips and hands are obviously crucial body parts for cornerbacks.
Oct 24 - 2:30 PM

Bears CB Kyle Fuller (hip, broken hand) returned to practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Fuller's status for Sunday's game against the Patriots remains up in the air, but this is obviously a major step in the right direction. If Fuller does play, it will have to be with protection on his hand, which is never good news for a defensive back.
Oct 23 - 2:32 PM

Bears CB Kyle Fuller (hip, broken hand) is day to day.

His hand does not require surgery. Fuller's hip was the reason he departed Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. It sounds like Fuller will try to play with a club on his hand, though that would obviously destroy his ability to intercept the ball. He may end up needing to miss a game or two.
Oct 20 - 3:09 PM

Bears CB Kyle Fuller broke his hand and suffered a hip pointer in Sunday's Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

Fuller was able to go back into the game with a cast after the hand injury, but later was knocked out by the hip issue. It's unclear how severe it is right now. Fuller, the No. 14 overall pick this season, started the season on fire before struggling a bit against the Packers and Panthers.
Oct 19 - 8:52 PM

Bears CB Kyle Fuller exited Week 7 against the Dolphins with a hip injury and will not return.

Fuller was hurt in the second quarter. He tried loosening the hip up on the stationary bike, but couldn't and is out for the rest of the game. Fluid hips are more important for cornerbacks than any other position. He's day-to-day.
Oct 19 - 3:07 PM

The Bears have listed CB Kyle Fuller (ankle) as day to day.

Fuller injured his ankle during the opening kickoff against the Jags last Thursday. It sounds like the No. 3 corner will be fine well before Week 1.
Aug 18 - 4:02 PM

ESPN Chicago confirms that rookie CB Kyle Fuller's ankle injury isn't believed to be serious.

Fuller was injured on the opening kickoff of Thursday night's preseason game. X-rays have ruled out structural damage, and he should be considered day to day. The Bears plan to update Fuller's status early next week.
Aug 15 - 7:06 PM

Bears first-round CB Kyle Fuller was forced from Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars with an ankle injury.

Fuller got hurt on the opening kickoff. He appeared to be walking without much of a limp as he made his way to the locker room, and X-rays were negative. He's likely day to day. The Bears' No. 3 corner, Fuller will man the outside in nickel situations.
Aug 14 - 8:46 PM

Updating previous items, the Bears are using first-round pick Kyle Fuller at outside cornerback in sub-packages.

In "sub," Fuller enters outside opposite RCB Peanut Tillman, and LCB Tim Jennings kicks inside to cover the slot. Fuller was initially expected to play inside, but offers superior size to Jennings and can match up with bigger wideouts. The Bears look strong at cornerback. Safety remains a big concern with Chris Conte rehabbing, and Ryan Mundy and M.D. Jennings running as the starters.
May 28 - 9:16 PM

Bears signed No. 14 overall pick CB Kyle Fuller to a four-year contract.

Based on last year's No. 14 overall pick, the deal is worth somewhere around $9.605 million and includes a $5 million-plus signing bonus. The Bears will also hold a fifth-year club option for 2018. As a rookie, Fuller is expected to cover the slot initially, while Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings handle outside duties. Fuller could end up outside, supplanting Tillman, sooner rather than later. Fuller is going to play extensively right out of the chute.
