Chicago Bears Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: The Bears promoted Jones from their practice squad to their active roster Thursday.
Impact: Jones' promotion comes after linebacker Leonard Floyd was placed on injured reserve. With the Bears' linebacking unit plagued with injuries, it's possible Jones could ultimately see some snaps, but he's expected to play a reserve role on defense early on.
News: Floyd (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Impact: As expected, Floyd's season is officially over after he was diagnosed with MCL and PCL sprains in his right knee and the linebacker will undergo surgery within the week. Floyd's absence will leave a gap within the Bears' defensive front and they'll use his roster spot to promote linebacker Howard Jones to their active roster.
News: Fuller (hand) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.
Impact: Fuller required medical attention after cutting his hand during Sunday's loss to the Lions, but he's in no danger of missing the Week 12 matchup with the Eagles.
News: Bears head coach John Fox said Floyd (knee) will "more than likely" be placed on injured reserve, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Impact: Floyd sprained the MCL and PCL in his right knee during Sunday's loss to the Lions, and while it's undetermined if he'll require surgery, the injury will necessitate a multi-week recovery. The 2016 first-round pick's absence will be a big blow to the Bears defense after he accrued 33 tackles, 4.5 sacks and one fumble recovery across the first 10 games of his second NFL campaign.
News: Bellamy (concussion) failed to practice Wednesday.
Impact: Bellamy's absence from practice suggests he hasn't made much progress through the NFL's concussion protocol, which he entered after suffering the head injury in Sunday's loss to the Lions. The wideout has three games of six or more targets on his ledger this season, but could be relegated primarily to special teams work the rest of the way with Dontrelle Inman emerging as the Bears' top target in the passing game and Markus Wheaton gradually approaching full health after a bout with a groin injury.
News: Trevathan (calf) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.
Impact: Trevathan isn't starting Week 12 preparations on solid footing, as evidenced by his continued focus on rehab rather than practice. Still, he has two practices to make an appearance by week's end. Another absence Sunday in Philadelphia would result in Christian Jones starting at inside linebacker.
News: Sims (illness) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.
Impact: A mystery illness has kept Sims away from the field for two games, but his return in some capacity Wednesday indicates he's beginning to regain his health. He would help himself by getting through the week unscathed, but his absence has paved the way for the emergence of rookie tight end Adam Shaheen, who has hauled in all six targets for 80 yards and one touchdown during that span. Once Sims is cleared to play again, it's unclear what kind of snap count he can expect.
News: Inman was limited at Wednesday's practice with a groin injury.
Impact: No injury was reported for Inman in the aftermath of Sunday's 27-24 loss to Detroit, but he apparently came out of the contest with some discomfort or soreness in his groin. Inman has led all Chicago wideouts in snap share the past two games, topping 84 percent in both contests while combining to catch nine of 13 targets for 131 yards. Assuming his injury isn't serious, Inman could stay busy in Week 12 against an Eagles team that often forces opponents to abandon the run game. It's still difficult to see much upside in any piece of the Chicago passing game.
News: Hall (hamstring) will practice Wednesday after the Bears designated him to return from injured reserve.
Impact: The Bears will thus have a 21-day window to evaluate Hall's health in practices before adding him to the 53-man roster or leaving him on injured reserve for the rest of the season. Given that the second-year cornerback has been sidelined since the preseason finale, Hall will likely need more than a week of practice time to regain conditioning, so it seems rather unlikely that he'll be activated in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Eagles.
