The Bears listed Brandon Marshall (ankle) as a "limited" participant on Monday's practice report.

The Bears didn't actually hold a practice, but Marshall would have been limited if they had. He remains a safe bet to face the Lions on Thanksgiving Day.
Nov 24 - 3:51 PM

Marquess Wilson played on 29-of-59 snaps (49.1 percent) in Sunday's win over the Bucs.

It was a major downgrade from Week 11, when Wilson was in on 74.3 percent of the snaps. Regardless, he's seen just seven targets over the last two weeks and produced 3-21-0. Wilson is only a Brandon Marshall/Alshon Jeffery handcuff in redraft, but a strong hold in Dynasty.

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

Marquess Wilson caught 1-of-3 targets for 10 yards Week 12 against the Bucs.

Both of the missed targets were drops by Wilson, though one of the throws was barely above his shoelaces. Clearly the fifth option in an inconsistent passing game, Wilson has little re-draft value. He is still a great dynasty stash.
Nov 23 - 4:43 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 3-of-4 targets for 22 yards and a touchdown Week 12 against the Bucs.

Jeffery only had four yards receiving at the half and was completely shut down except for a 16-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter. He saved his day with a two-yard touchdown pass on the first drive of the third quarter, and he now has three touchdowns in his last four games. Jeffery will be a solid WR1 against the Lions Thanksgiving day.
Nov 23 - 4:41 PM

Brandon Marshall caught 3-of-5 targets for 32 yards Week 12 against the Buccaneers.

Marshall made a couple early catches but saw his targets dry up as the Bears took the air out of the ball in the fourth quarter. Marshall escaped the game without any setbacks, and it appears his ankle is no longer an issue. He will be a borderline WR1 against the Lions on Thanksgiving day.
Nov 23 - 4:38 PM

Martellus Bennett caught 4-of-7 targets for 37 yards Week 12 against the Bucs.

Bennett was quiet along with the rest of the Bears passing game. He went up high for a 26-yard grab on Chicago's opening drive of the third quarter, but he was held in check the rest of the day despite seeing a team-high seven targets. Bennett will remain a borderline TE1 against the Lions on Thanksgiving day.
Nov 23 - 4:34 PM

Matt Forte rushed 23 times for 89 yards and two touchdowns Week 12 against the Buccaneers.

He added five catches for 23 yards. Forte struggled with the rest of the Bears' offense in the first half, but he had a silky smooth 13-yard touchdown run following a Josh McCown fumble in the third quarter. He added a one-yard scoring plunge later in the third. With five more catches today, Forte is on pace for 105 catches this season.
Nov 23 - 4:29 PM

Jay Cutler completed 17-of-27 passes for 130 yards and one touchdown Week 12 against the Buccaneers.

Cutler and the Bears offense struggled mightily in the first half, but three Buccaneer turnovers in the third quarter allowed Chicago to put up 21 quick points. The Bears took the air out of the ball following the turnovers, and Cutler only attempted nine passes total in the second half. Cutler will be a borderline QB1 against the Lions on Thanksgiving day.
Nov 23 - 4:26 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 WLB Lance Briggs exited Week 12 against the Bucs with a groin injury.

Briggs hurt himself in a collision with Mike Evans in the second quarter. He slowly walked to the locker room before halftime. Briggs has been ruled out for the rest of the game. Rookie Christian Jones will replace Briggs in the lineup.
Nov 23 - 2:49 PM

Bears declared RT Jordan Mills, LB Khaseem Greene, LB Darryl Sharpton, OT Eben Britton, DE Trevor Scott, KR Chris Williams and CB Terrance Mitchell inactive for Week 12 against the Buccaneers.

Mills is missing with a rib issue, but was on the field for pre-game warmups. He could return next week. Sharpton (hamstring), Britton (illness), Williams (hamstring) and Scott (knee) are week to week.
Nov 23 - 11:39 AM

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 12.

Keep red-hot Jeffery rolling this week against Tampa Bay.
Nov 21 - 1:39 PM

Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 12.

He's a locked-in WR1 against the Buccaneers' vulnerable pass defense.
Nov 21 - 1:39 PM

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) returned to Bears practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Jeffery's Week 12 availability isn't believed to be in any danger. His status will be updated on Friday.
