Travis Homer
Travis Homer Questionable to face Denver
Fri, Sep 29, 2023, 2:29 PM
Homer (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 4 game against the Broncos, Courtney Cronin of reports.
Analysis: Homer has mainly played special teams as the Bears' third or fourth running back, seeing just two offensive snaps. If he would need to miss Week 4, Homer's absence wouldn't be felt on offense.
D'Onta Foreman
D'Onta Foreman Practicing fully
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 3:15 PM
Foreman is a full participant in practice this week ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Analysis: Foreman has been inactive for the Bears' last two games, but an injury isn't in play, as he's simply fallen behind rookie Roschon Johnson on the depth chart. Meanwhile, No. 3 running back and core special-teams player Travis Homer (ankle) was added to the Bears' injury report Thursday as a limited participant in practice, so Foreman could re-enter the backfield mix Week 4 if Homer isn't available.
Nathan Peterman
Nathan Peterman Rejoins Chicago
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 3:10 PM
Peterman re-signed with the Bears on Sept. 21, one day after being released, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: According to Finley, Peterman's brief removal from the 53-man roster was the result of the Bears' desire to sign another player off an opposing team's practice squad, but the deal ultimately didn't come to pass. As a result, Peterman ended up suiting up for this past Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Chiefs, but he didn't take any snaps even though the game turned into a blowout by halftime. Peterman has dressed for all three of the Bears' games to date as the backup to Justin Fields, with rookie Tyson Bagent being inactive for each of those contests as the team's No. 3 quarterback.
Travis Homer
Travis Homer Limited Thursday
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 2:25 PM
Homer (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Analysis: Chicago's third-string running back popped up on the team's injury report Thursday after practicing in full Wednesday. Homer hasn't touched the ball on offense this year, primarily playing on special teams. If he's unable to go this coming Sunday, D'Onta Foreman will likely suit up for the second time this year.

D'Onta Foreman Practicing fully
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 2:19 PM
Foreman is practicing fully ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Analysis: Foreman has been inactive for the Bears' last two games, but an injury isn't in play on the front. Meanwhile, fellow RB Travis Homer (ankle) was added to the team's injury report as limited Thursday and if he's out this weekend, Foreman could re-enter Chicago's backfield mix in Week 4.
Darnell Mooney
Darnell Mooney Shut out in loss
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 10:30 PM
Mooney failed to catch his lone target in the Bears' 41-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Analysis: After leaving last week's game with a bruised knee, Mooney was seventh on the team with one target. Unless his role increases and the Bears' passing attack improves, Mooney may not have the upside he showed earlier in his career.
Tyler Scott
Tyler Scott Targeted three times in loss
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 10:28 PM
Scott caught one pass for six yards in the Bears' 41-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Analysis: Scott has three catches for 20 yards on the season, and unless his role in the offense increases, he'll be tough to trust in fantasy lineups.
Chase Claypool
Chase Claypool Weak performance
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 10:26 PM
Claypool caught one pass for 15 yards in the Bears' 41-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Analysis: Claypool was second on the team with four targets, but the Chicago offense was unable to move the ball until the Chiefs brought in their defensive backups late in the game. Although Claypool has seen increased snaps since Week 1, the anemic passing game may limit his potential to have consistent production.
Cole Kmet
Cole Kmet Snags two passes
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 10:22 PM
Kmet caught two passes for 22 yards in the Bears' 41-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Analysis: In a game that Justin Fields threw for just 99 yards, Kmet was second on the team with his 22 yards. Going into this game, Chicago passed for at least 200 yards in their previous two contests, so Kmet should return closer to the 41 yards he was averaging. However, the lack of scoring by the Bears offense could limit Kmet's touchdown upside.
Roschon Johnson
Roschon Johnson First back used in loss
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 9:11 PM
Johnson rushed eight times for 38 yards and caught both of his targets for 11 yards in a 41-10 loss to Kansas City on Sunday.
Analysis: Johnson continued to split backfield work with Khalil Herbert (7-31-0) after usurping veteran D'Onta Foreman on the depth chart last week. The fourth-round rookie didn't finish with a gaudy stat line, but he was efficient when called upon (4.8 YPC). It is worth noting that he was the first back deployed Sunday, indicating his growing trust from a coaching staff looking for answers after an 0-3 start. It will be interesting to see if Johnson's role continues to increase as the season progresses. For now, he should continue to split work with Herbert against the Broncos next Sunday.
Khalil Herbert
Khalil Herbert Continues splitting backfield work
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 8:50 PM
Herbert rushed seven times for 31 yards and caught both of his targets for four yards in Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Chiefs.
Analysis: Herbert continued splitting backfield duties with Roschon Johnson (8-38-0), receiving nine combined touches to the latter's 10. Neither back stood out on the stat sheet, and it appears that Chicago will continue its backfield time-share for the foreseeable future. The reduced workload limits Herbert's fantasy potential ahead of next Sunday's matchup against the Broncos.
DJ Moore
DJ Moore Scores TD in garbage time
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 8:27 PM
Moore had three receptions on six targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-10 loss to Kansas City.
Analysis: Moore cashed in his first touchdown with the Bears on the team's final offensive drive of an ugly loss Sunday. Garbage-time scores count all the same in fantasy, giving the wideout his second consecutive quality line after going for 104 yards last week. He did leave a chunk of yards on the table on a deep pass attempt from Justin Fields that was dropped by the normally sure-handed receiver. Moore will draw a tough matchup against shutdown corner Patrick Surtain when the Bears face the Broncos next Sunday.
Justin Fields
Justin Fields Early struggles continue
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 7:47 PM
Fields completed 11 of 22 pass attempts for 99 yards, a touchdown and an interception to go along with 11 carries for 47 yards in Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Chiefs.
Analysis: Fields' disappointing start to the season worsened after he failed to break the century mark in passing yards despite playing every offensive snap Sunday. All the blame can't be placed on the third-year starter, as his offensive line looked outmatched, and his top wideout DJ Moore dropped the only accurate deep ball thrown all game. The silver lining for Fields was his even TD:INT ratio against Kansas City after turning the ball over six times in his previous two starts. Fields' next chance to salvage his depleted fantasy value comes in a matchup between winless teams when Chicago hosts Denver next Sunday.
Equanimeous St. Brown
Equanimeous St. Brown Healthy scratch in Week 3
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 2:16 PM
St. Brown (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 matchup against the Chiefs.
Analysis: St. Brown will continue to await his season debut, as Sunday qualifies as his third healthy scratch in as many games to open the season. The speedster's next opportunity to see his first action of 2023 comes in a Week 4 home matchup against the Broncos next Sunday.
D'Onta Foreman
D'Onta Foreman Healthy inactive again in Week 3
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 2:10 PM
Foreman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 matchup against the Chiefs.
Analysis: The offseason addition will thus be relegated to healthy scratch status for the second consecutive game as rookie Roschon Johnson and change-of-pace back Travis Homer slot in behind Khalil Herbert. The extent of Foreman's regular-season action in a Bears uniform thus far is the 21 snaps he logged in the season-opening loss to the Packers, and his next opportunity to suit up comes in a Week 4 home battle against the Broncos next Sunday.
Darnell Mooney
Darnell Mooney Cleared to face Chiefs
Fri, Sep 22, 2023, 2:20 PM
Mooney (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Kansas City, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Matt Eberflus suggested earlier in the week that Mooney was unlikely to miss additional time following his early departure from last week's 27-17 loss to Tampa Bay. The wideout put up 4-53-1 on a team-high-tying seven targets in the season opener but then didn't see any passes on 11 routes Week 2. If nothing else, Mooney can be counted on to play a large share of Chicago's snaps while running many of his routes downfield.
Darnell Mooney
Darnell Mooney Reps capped again Thursday
Thu, Sep 21, 2023, 2:46 PM
Mooney (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Analysis: For the second day in a row, Mooney had his reps managed in practice while he tends to a knee issue. The Bears haven't expressed any major concern with Mooney's health, so if he's able to bump up to full participation in Friday's session, he'll likely approach Sunday's game in Kansas City without an injury designation. Through the Bears' first two games, Mooney has hauled in four of seven targets for 53 yards and a touchdown.
Darnell Mooney
Darnell Mooney Limited practice Wednesday
Wed, Sep 20, 2023, 2:21 PM
Mooney (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday.
Analysis: Mooney departed this past Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay due to a knee injury, but Jeremy Fowler of reported after the game that the issue isn't considered to be severe. By kicking off Week 3 prep with a capped session, Mooney may be trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's visit to the Chiefs. His activity will need to be monitored in practice the next two days to get a sense of his potential to play in that contest.
Darnell Mooney
Darnell Mooney Knee injury isn't serious
Sun, Sep 17, 2023, 8:14 PM
The knee injury Mooney suffered in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Buccaneers isn't considered serious, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Mooney left the game early in the second half, but he isn't expected to miss much, if any, additional time. He had 53 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's season opener but finished without a target in Week 2. Mooney's next chance to take the field will be in Week 3 against Kansas City.
Velus Jones
Velus Jones Posts negative yardage in loss
Sun, Sep 17, 2023, 8:05 PM
Jones lost three yards on his lone rushing attempt in the Bears' 27-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Analysis: Jones was inactive for the season opener, and he had a minor role in the offense upon his return. He'll need a significant change in his situation to become a reliable fantasy performer.
