Bears activate Teven Jenkins, flex 2 from the practice squad

Bears activate Teven Jenkins, flex 2 from the practice squad

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports The Bears get their big rookie back today! With his three-week practice window expiring this week, the Chicago Bears had a decision to make on rookie offensive tackle Teven Jenkins, and what was reported yesterday if finally official today. The Bears have activated Jenkins from injured reserve. A decision on him being active for Sunday’s gams against the Arizona Cardinals won’t come until 90 minutes before kickoff, but even if he does suit up for his debut game, I wouldn’t expect him to get much playing time. The Bears moved up...

2022 NFL Draft: Center prospects Bears should target

2022 NFL Draft: Center prospects Bears should target

Bryon Houlgrave/The Register / USA TODAY NETWORK The Bears could be in the market for a center in the 2022 NFL Draft, and these prospects project as potential fits. The Bears have Sam Mustipher under exclusive-rights free agent control this offseason, but with the 25-year-old struggles this year, they may be in the market for a replacement after the season. By all accounts, Mustipher is an intelligent player whose football IQ shows up in his ability to communicate adjustments at the line of scrimmage, and he is able to pitch in with double-teams well. That said, his...

Keys for the Bears to beat the Cardinals because why not?

Photo by Robin Alam/Icon SMI/Icon Sport Media via The 4-7 Chicago Bears host the 9-2 Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, and on paper that makes this is one of the bigger mismatches in the NFL this week. But the weather forecast is showing a strong chance for a sloppy Soldier Field, so that might help slow down the explosive Arizona offense. We asked a few of our staffers to give their keys for Chicago to pull off the upset, and with the disappointing way this season has gone it was tough to muster up the passion and excitement for this game.

Bears vs Cardinals Injury Report: Akiem Hicks 1 of 4 ruled out, Roquan Smith questionable

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ The Chicago Bears had a few extra days of recovery after their Thanksgiving day game on November 25, and that may have helped a few players heal up enough to give it a go on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, but the Bears are still going to be shorthanded against the team with the best record in the league. Here’s how the Bears list today’s final injury report. Akiem Hicks, DL (Ankle) - Out Mario Edwards Jr., DL (Ribs) - Out Marquise Goodwin, WR (Foot/ribs) - Out Damien Williams, RB (Calf) - Out Roquan Smith, ILB (Hamstring) -...

Sign up here to join Reacts. The Chicago Bears got their customary confidence poll bump after a win in this week’s Reacts’ vote, shooting up to 24% after being down at 15% following the loss to the Ravens. A big part of their win in Detroit was the play from back up quarterback Andy Dalton. The Red Rifle led a Bears’ passing attack to 310 team passing yards, which is their most in...

Chicago Bears QB1 Charity Challenge Update: Week 11 & 12

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ How much money did Bears Twitter raise for charity this week? As many of us know, Twitter can become a toxic place. This season, I’ve decided to try and create some positive waves with Bears Twitter and hopefully make it a better place. Each week, I will send out a tweet (@ZimmermanSXM) asking for guesses for the Chicago Bears’ QB1’s stats for that game. For each guess received, I will donate $1 to a given certified charity that week, up to $200 (doubled to $400 if Bears win). The person that comes closest to guessing QB1’s stats will...

Fantasy Monsters of the Midway: Start/Sit Guide for Week 13

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ Gearing up for playoffs in your fantasy football league? There are a couple Bears players worth a lineup spot. The Chicago Bears left Ford Field on Thanksgiving victors over to Detroit Lions, who now sit at 0-10-1. It took a walkoff field goal to beat the winless division rivals, and the Bears largely avoided the running game for no reason they’re willing to share. Quarterback Andy Dalton, filling in for Justin Fields (ribs), had one of his best games of his post-Bengals career, topping 300 passing yards and hooking up with tight end Jimmy...

Is Kellen Moore the best option for the next Bears HC?

Is Kellen Moore the best option for the next Bears HC?

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Voters recently deemed Kellen Moore the best option to be head coach of the Bears in 2022. Barring an unforeseen turn of events, the Bears will likely be moving on from Matt Nagy. Nagy has been on the hot seat since last season, and although he survived the 2021 offseason with his head coaching job in tact, a 4-7 record heading into December will presumably put the nail in the coffin. The general consensus among Bears fans seems to be that firing Nagy is the right move for the organization, but as far as his replacement goes, fans seem to...
