Bears QB Connor Shaw suffered a broken right leg above the ankle in Saturday's preseason game.

He was driven immediately to the hospital and will undergo surgery. Shaw "could be back this season," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported, but Shaw will be placed on injured reserve. Perhaps he'll be released later with a settlement.

Jordan Howard rushed four times for eight yards and caught one pass for four yards in the Bears' third preseason game.

Howard did not see the field until late in the third quarter, working behind Jeremy Langford, Jacquizz Rodgers, and Ka'Deem Carey. Although he was expected to be an important member of the backfield rotation earlier this offseason, the fifth-round rookie now looks destined to spend the early part of his career riding the bench. He is not worth a look in redraft leagues.

Bears QB Connor Shaw suffered a serious leg injury Saturday against the Chiefs.

Shaw suffered what looked like a broken ankle late in the fourth quarter. His leg was placed in an air cast before he was carted off the field. He is likely done for the season. Shaw had been one of the few bright spots for the Bears, completing 5-of-7 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown. Brian Hoyer, who was shaken up after falling hard on his elbow earlier in the game, replaced him at quarterback.

Ka'Deem Carey rushed four times for nine yards and caught one pass for 10 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

His one catch was a nice fourth-down conversion in the third quarter. Carey was the third back through the rotation Saturday, working behind Jeremy Langford and Jacquizz Rodgers but ahead of rookie Jordan Howard. He will not see any fantasy value in that role, but he would be a name to remember if something happened to Langford.
Aug 27 - 3:59 PM

Kevin White caught 1-of-4 targets for three yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

White had a rough day, dropping a screen pass in the third quarter and running what looked like a bad route on the next play. White has yet to top one catch or six yards in a game this preseason and has been limited to mostly screen passes. It looks like he still has a long way to go, but his upside is worth the risk in the eighth round.
Aug 27 - 3:47 PM

Alshon Jeffery hauled in 2-of-6 targets for 18 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

Jeffery had a rough afternoon, dropping at least two passes including what would have been a long gain in the first half. He redeemed himself somewhat with a great catch to start the second half, but it was a bad day for the entire offense. Despite his struggles Saturday, Jeffery should return back-end WR1 value as long as he is healthy.
Aug 27 - 3:43 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed once for one yard Saturday against the Chiefs.

Rodgers did not get much work, but he was again the second back through the rotation Saturday. He would need an injury to Jeremy Langford to return any fantasy value, and even then he would likely be on the wrong side of a committee.
Aug 27 - 3:40 PM

Jeremy Langford rushed six times for 17 yards in the Bears' third preseason game.

The entire offense struggled in the first half, but as has been the case all preseason, Langford worked as the clear three-down starter, playing every snap on the Bears' first three possessions. Langford might not be a special talent, but he has a great shot to top 250 touches. He is worth a look in the fourth round.
Aug 27 - 3:35 PM

Jay Cutler completed 6-of-15 passes for 45 yards in the Bears' third preseason game Saturday.

Cutler could not get anything going early against the Chiefs, leading a three-and-out on three of the Bears' first four possessions. The offense put together a solid 12-play drive to open the second half, but overall it was an ugly performance. Even with Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White healthy, Cutler is nothing more than a back-end QB2.
Aug 27 - 3:32 PM

Bears CB Tracy Porter exited the third preseason game with a possible concussion.

He took a knee to the back of the head from a teammate late in the second quarter. He stayed down on the turf for several minutes before being escorted to the locker room. With Kyle Fuller out with a knee injury, the Bears are very thin at corner.
Aug 27 - 2:24 PM

Bears TE Zach Miller and WR Eddie Royal will not play Saturday against the Chiefs.

Both have returned to practice, but the Bears are being cautious as the duo recover from concussions. Miller has TE1 upside if he can stay healthy, but that has been an issue throughout his career. After an injury-plagued first season in Chicago, Royal should serve as the No. 3 this year. RG Kyle Long (shoulder) and OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) are also sitting out.
Aug 27 - 12:43 PM

Jeremy Langford hopes to be a three-down back this season.

"I think I'm definitely getting better at that," Langford said of being a three-down back. "Just really playing through contact and catching the ball when I get the opportunity to do so. And just showing my pass-blocking ability, which I haven't had the chance that much in the preseason so far. I think I'm making strides toward that real good." With fifth-round rookie Jordan Howard failing to make a push on early downs, Langford should get his wish to begin the season, making him a solid RB2.

Jeremy Langford (foot) has resumed practicing in full.

Langford's absence lasted less than a week. He should suit up for Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal.
Aug 25 - 1:27 PM

Bears NT Eddie Goldman said he feels "faster" this season.

Goldman lost some weight this offseason, and he thinks it has translated to the field. "I didn’t play a full game yet so I can’t really judge myself," Goldman said. "But I can tell you that I feel faster, quicker." After a strong rookie season, the Bears are counting on Goldman to anchor their run defense.

Jeremy Langford (foot) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Langford appears to be questionable at best for the Bears' regular season dress rehearsal, but this is a step in the right direction after his foot was stepped on in Chicago's second preseason game, and Langford spent the next day in a walking boot. All signs still point to this being a minor "injury".
