  Bears | Chase Claypool finishes with five receptions    Sun Dec 4, 06:05 PM

Chicago Bears WR Chase Claypool caught five passes for 28 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He was targeted six times during the game.

Footballguys view: Claypool left with a knee injury on a play that he also fumbled. He was looking like a possible WR3/Flex option in fantasy leagues as the newly-minted WR1 in the offense, but we might not see him again this season based on how the injury looked.

  Bears | Six receptions for Cole Kmet    Sun Dec 4, 05:59 PM

Chicago Bears TE Cole Kmet caught six passes for 72 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He was targeted seven times during the game.

Footballguys view: Kmet was the most frequent target with Chase Claypool leaving due to injury. He's worth a pickup if he was dropped during Justin Fields absence even though the Bears are heading into their bye.

  Bears | David Montgomery reaches end zone    Sun Dec 4, 05:52 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery rushed for 61 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He also caught four passes for six yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Montgomery has been a solid RB2 play since Khalil Herbert went on injured reserve, even when Justin Fields has sat. He'll be on bye next week, but well-rested for the fantasy playoffs.

  Bears | Justin Field posts 325 total yards    Sun Dec 4, 05:49 PM

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields went 20-for-25 for 254 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He also rushed for 71 yards and one touchdown on six carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Fields wasn't restricted as a runner and ripped off a 55-yard score to show that he is still too much for defenses to handle for an entire game. He was a very efficient passer even with Chase Claypool leaving due to injury. If Fields starts after the bye, he'll be a must start.

  Bears | Week 13 injury report for Chicago    Fri Dec 2, 02:41 PM

Chicago Bears OT Larry Borom (ankle, knee), S Jaquan Brisker (concussion), CB Kyler Gordon (concussion) and QB Trevor Siemian (oblique) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers. OT Riley Reiff (back) and CB Kindle Vildor (ankle) were upgraded to a full practice Friday, Dec. 2, but are listed as questionable. WR Chase Claypool (knee), QB Justin Fields (shoulder), WR Dante Pettis (illness) and LB Sterling Weatherford (concussion) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Justin Fields will get the start this week. It's not clear if the team will lighten his workload as a runner to protect his injured shoulder. He's a boom/bust play, with less appeal now that Darnell Mooney is on injured reserve.

  Bears | Darnell Mooney lands on IR    Tue Nov 29, 03:08 PM

Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Footballguys view: Mooney's ankle injury is likely to require surgery, and his 2022 season is done. He finished this year with 40 catches, 493 yards, and two touchdowns. The 2020 fifth-round pick will be in the final year of his rookie contract in 2023, so perhaps the Bears will look to get him a contract extension in the offseason.

Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) is expected to undergo season-ending surgery on the ankle injury he suffered in Week 12 versus the New York Jets, according to head coach Matt Eberflus.

Footballguys view: A sad ending to a young player who was flashing at times for the Bears' offense. A fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft, the Bears might think about extending Mooney this offseason.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery rushed for 79 yards on 14 carries against the New York Jets in Week 12. He also caught three passes for 34 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Montgomery was the best thing about the Bears offense and showed he can still be worth a flex/RB2 play even without Justin Fields. The Bears face the Packers next week.

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) has not been cleared to play yet and the chances of that happening before game time on Sunday are 'very slim,' per Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune on Saturday, Nov. 26.

Footballguys view: Fields is considered a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Jets. That's why the Bears brought up Nathan Peterman from the practice squad on Saturday. It's a sign we could see Trevor Siemian as the starter with Peterman as his backup.
