2017 Schedule
4-9, 4th in NFC North

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears are lucky to have even scored three points in the first half. If not for Detroit's fumble with under 1 minute left until halftime the Bears would've been shut out. Regardless, the Lions outgained the Bears 225 to 90 in another lousy showing by John Fox's team.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears say OLB Pernell McPhee doubtful to return with a shoulder injury. McPhee missed last week's game at Cincinnati because of a bum shoulder.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears have been outgained 195 yards to 33 yards. No wonder Lions are up 13-0.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee quickly jogs to the sidelines to get checked out by Chicago's doctors.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Not sure why John Fox doesn't go for it on 4th-and-1 at his own 45. The Bears are 4-9 and not making the playoffs. Tough to figure out his rationale for staying so conservative.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears only had 18 total yards of offense in the 1st quarter.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears safety Chris Prosinski officially ruled out with a concussion.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

OLB Lamarr Houston now has three sacks in three games since he's re-joined the Bears.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears safety Chris Prosinski is in concussion protocol, the team announces.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears safety Chris Prosinski is taken back to the locker room. Deon Bush (currently in the game) and DeAndre Houston-Carson are the backup safeties on today's active roster -- Deiondre Hall is a healthy scratch. Adrian Amos is inactive because of a hamstring injury.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears doctors are looking at safety Chris Prosinski, who comes out of the game in favor of Deon Bush.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Former 4th round pick Deiondre Hall is a healthy scratch for the Bears on Saturday. The Bears attempted to get Hall, who recently came off of injured reserve, involved in their safety rotation but he apparently did not impress the coaching staff. This is a bad look for Hall, who's been a non-factor/injured since the Bears drafted him in 2016.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Disappointing turn of events for rookie tight end Adam Shaheen, who's inactive with what the Bears are calling a chest injury. Shaheen finally got in the flow of the offense last week with four catches for 44 yards and one touchdown vs. the Bengals. The chest injury is a setback for a player the Bears badly need to develop.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Chicago Bears inactives vs. Detroit: QB Mark Sanchez, DB Deiondre Hall, RB Taquan Mizzell, S Adrian Amos, OL Cameron Lee, DL Rashaad Coward and TE Adam Shaheen,

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears rookie Mitchell Trubisky has a Total QBR of 52 in his last two games after 22 in his first seven games, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Trubisky is coming off the best game of his young professional career. Last week in Cincinnati, Trubisky passed for 271 yards and one touchdown. The second overall pick also rushed for a four-yard touchdown.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bears lost a close 27-24 game to Detroit back in November but Chicago can get the ultimate payback on Saturday. The Lions (7-6) are still alive for the playoffs but a loss to the Bears virtually eliminates them from postseason contention.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears are looking for their first victory in Detroit since Lovie Smith's final season of 2012. The Lions have swept the season series three of the last four years.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

"It's a little bit like Thursdays. A little bit like coming off Mondays. One good thing about doing it for a while is, you have a schedule about everything. We've had Saturday playoff games that can happen as well. So the Saturday game's not that unusual." -- Bears coach John Fox on the uniqueness of playing on Saturday.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Chicago Bears final injury report vs. Lions: QUESTIONABLE -- safety Adrian Amos (hamstring), DL Eddie Goldman (hip), DB DeAndre Houston-Carson (ankle) and tight end Adam Shaheen (chest).

Lions to be minus two O-line starters Saturday

The Detroit Lions will be without two-fifths of their starting offensive line on Saturday against the Bears as both right guard Rick Wagner and center Travis Swanson have been ruled out.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

What's left for the Bears (4-9) to play for? "We want to be the Grinch this year," linebacker Danny Trevathan told reporters at Halas Hall on Wednesday.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (team-high seven sacks) has played at a Pro Bowl level in 2017 but the veteran expressed disappointment on Wednesday over his number of missed opportunities. "I think I missed about four sacks in the last month," Hicks told reporters at Halas Hall. "I'm talking about hands on the quarterback and falling off. But in those situations I've set up other guys to be able to finish those sacks off."
