Bears QB Jay Cutler (right thumb) took limited practice reps Wednesday. We’re expecting Brian Hoyer to start in Week 4, though Cutler certainly has a chance to make his return. The Bears play early on Sunday.

Bears RB KaDeem Carey (hamstring) and Jeremy Langford (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. It looks like Jordan Howard will start with both Carey and Langford out. He’s a Sneaky Start in what could be a sizable workload against the Lions.

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Jeffery should continue to play through the injury.

Bears sign RB Joique Bell

RB Joique Bell has signed with the Bears heading into Sunday's game against Detroit at Soldier Field, according to NFL Network.

Related players: Jordan Howard, KaDeem Carey

Fantasy Impact:

This comes mere days after the Lions hosted him for a workout last week. Detroit was trying to figure out how to replace Ameer Abdullah, whom the club reportedly fears could be lost for the season with a torn ligament in his foot, and kicked the tires on Bell with a workout. Now Bell will help replace Jeremy Langford who is expected to miss 4-6 week with a bad ankle. The Bears aren't sure of KaDeem Carey's status heading into this week and perhaps didn't want Jordan Howard to carry a large workload. Raheem Mostert was Chicago's only other back.

Bears RB Jeremy Langford (ankle) expected to miss 4-6 weeks

Tuesday, September 27, 2016, 1:37pm

ABC News - [Full Article]

Chicago Bears running back Jeremy Langford is expected to miss four to six weeks with a sprained ankle, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Bears coach John Fox confirmed earlier Monday that Langford had a sprained ankle in the Bears' 31-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but did not provide a timetable for his return.

Langford wore a walking boot in the AT&T Stadium visitors' locker room after the game.

Related players: Jordan Howard, KaDeem Carey, Raheem Mosert

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie fifth-round pick Jordan Howard replaced Langford and rushed for 45 yards on nine carries, plus he caught four balls for 47 yards. He seems the logical choice to replace Langford and was already getting a lot of interest from fantasy owners as Langford struggled at times this year. However, Fox was quick to point out Monday that Howard is just a rookie. The story added the Bears, on Wednesday, will re-evaluate running back KaDeem Carey, who sat out Week 3 with a hamstring injury. Chicago also recently signed tailback/returner Raheem Mostert after Carey got hurt. Carey, especially, could cut into Howard's workload if he's active.

No MRI for Cowboys WR Dez Bryant

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

WR Dez Bryant tweaked his knee during the first series of Sunday night's game against the Bears. The Cowboys' wideout returned after missing a few plays and ended the evening with three receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown.

After the game, owner and general manager Jerry Jones suggested that Bryant would have an MRI on Monday. On Tuesday, during an interview with CBS Radio's 105.3, Jones said the MRI never happened.

Fantasy Impact:

The MRI could still take place, but Jones added, "I'm assuming he's a go," when talking about Bryant's status for Sunday.

Bears RB Jeremy Langford's knee injury shouldn't be long term

Monday, September 26, 2016, 6:57pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Chicago Bears running back Jeremy Langford suffered a sprained right ankle in Chicago’s 31-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, coach John Fox confirmed on Monday.

Langford wore a walking boot in the AT&T Stadium visitors’ locker room after the game, but the injury is not believed to be long term.

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie fifth-round pick Jordan Howard replaced Langford and rushed for 45 yards on nine carries, plus he caught four balls for 47 yards. Howard is the logical choice to assume a larger role if Langford misses time, but Fox was not ready to fully commit to the youngster because he's only a rookie. The story said the Bears on Wednesday will re-evaluate running back Ka'Deem Carey, who sat out Week 3 with a hamstring injury. Chicago also recently signed tailback/returner Raheem Mostert after Carey got hurt.

Fox: QB Jay Cutler (thumb) day-to-day

Monday, September 26, 2016, 5:01pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Bears coach John Fox told reporters Monday that quarterback Jay Cutler is “day-to-day” with the thumb injury that kept him out of Sunday’s loss at Dallas.

Fantasy Impact:

Fox also gave an interesting answer when he was asked if Cutler will return as the starter when he’s healthy, saying he doesn't think there are any givens. Brian Hoyer started vs. the Cowboys with Cutler out.

Bears RB Jeremy Langford has ankle injury

Monday, September 26, 2016, 8:31am

CSN Chicago - [Full Article]

Add Jeremy Langford to the Bears' injury report.

The Bears running back left Sunday's game on a cart with an ankle injury in the third quarter of Sunday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys. He did not return.

Fantasy Impact:

Coach John Fox isn't sure about the severity of the injury. Langford was in a walking boot at the end of the game. Langford rushed for 31 yards on three carries and had two receptions for 15 yards in the team's 31-17 loss. Jordan Howard has been a popular pickup even before this injury and certainly seems to be a must-get this week. Howard rushed nine times for 45 yards but did fumble twice. He added four catches for 47 yards.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant to get MRI on right knee

Monday, September 26, 2016, 8:17am

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will have an MRI on his right knee after suffering the injury in Sunday's night game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact:

Bryant was injured on the second play of the game. He missed a few plays but the good news is he returned later in the quarter. Bryant finished with three catches for 40 yards and a touchdown.

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery ACTIVE vs. Cowboys

Sunday, September 25, 2016, 7:24pm

Bears Inactives
Bryce Callahan CB
KaDeem Carey RB
Jay Cutler QB
Kyle Fuller CB
Eddie Goldman NT
Eric Kush C
Danny Trevathan ILB

Fantasy Impact:

Alshon Jeffery was questionable coming into this contest but will play. Jay Cutler is out but we don't think Brian Hoyer is much of a downgrade for the Bear WRs at this point.

Bears QB Jay Cutler makes trip to Dallas

Saturday, September 24, 2016, 4:33pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Injured quarterback Jay Cutler made the trip, but the Bears announced Saturday that running back Kadeem Carey and nose tackle Eddie Goldman did not make the trip and will not play Sunday night at Dallas.

All three had been listed as doubtful. Cutler suffered a thumb injury in last Monday’s game vs. the Eagles and did not practice all week.

Fantasy Impact:

Brian Hoyer is the presumed starting quarterback vs. the Cowboys, but this is a Sunday night game so make sure you have a backup plan if you're planning on using either QB in your lineup.

Friday, September 23, 2016, 6:21pm

Bears QB Jay Cutler (right thumb, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 3. Cutler is expected to miss 2-3 weeks, though there are reports that he’s pushing to play in Week 3. Brian Hoyer will start. He’s not much of a downgrade from Cutler at this point, so the Bears’ skill position players shouldn’t lose much value with Hoyer under center.

Friday, September 23, 2016, 6:21pm

Bears RB KaDeem Carey (hamstring, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 3. Jordan Howard is trending up. He’ll serve as the RB2 in Week 3 behind a vulnerable starter, Jeremy Langford.

Friday, September 23, 2016, 6:21pm

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 3. The midweek downgrade is worrisome, and HC John Fox is well-known for divulging as little as possible to the press in an effort to trick his opponent that week. The return to a limited practice doesn’t tell us much and, complicating matters, the Bears play on Sunday night. Owners who want to wait on Jeffery should get a Plan B in place. Mohamed Sanu, Michael Thomas, Eddie Royal, Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams all play at the same time or later than the Bears.
