Ryan Mundy recorded 12 tackles (11 solo) during the Bears' loss to the Lions on Thursday.

You know your defense is having a tough day when a guy in the secondary not only has double-digit tackles, but leads the team as well. Mundy now has 74 tackles on the year with three interceptions and makes for one heck of an IDP option.

Robbie Gould kicked a 35-yard field goal in his lone attempt and converted both of his extra-point attempts during the Bears' 34-1`7 loss to the Lions on Thursday.

It was a relatively quiet day for Gould as he only took the field three times, not including kickoffs. He is now 9-for-12 on the season with 28 extra-point attempts converted.

Brandon Marshall caught six passes on 11 targets for 42 yards before leaving Thursday's loss to the Lions to get checked for a concussion.

The game was already well in-hand for the Lions at the time Marshall left so the fact that he's already cleared for light exercise could mean that his removal was more precautionary than anything. The news of this, of course, overshadowed the fact that Marshall had yet another sub par outing and is more than just a little close to losing his must-start status. Consider him day-to-day for now and expect a series of concussion updates throughout the week.

Alshon Jeffery caught nine passes on 13 targets for 71 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions on Thursday.

This game looked as if it was going to be the Jay Cutler/Alshon Jeffery show as the two connected for a pair of scores in the first quarter. But then the Lions defense took over and Jeffery's day quickly quieted down. He did right by his fantasy owners, especially those in DFS Thanksgiving Day-only games, so there's not a lot to complain about here. It certainly wasn't his fault the offense went stagnant. Next week against the Cowboys should be another good stage for him.

Martellus Bennett caught eight passes on 11 targets for 109 yards during the Bears' 34-17 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Bennett was a nice bright spot for the Bears offense, though he was unable to convert any of his catches into touchdowns. Still, he posted over 100 yards against one of the game's elite defenses and continues to provide his fantasy owners with solid production from what has been a very weak position this year.

Matt Forte carried the ball just five times for six yards and caught six passes on nine targets for 52 yards during Thursday's loss to the Lions.

The Bears completely abandoned the ground game right from the start, so Forte's fantasy owners were left hoping for a billion screen passes. They got nine which Forte hauled in six, but overall, this day was a huge bust. It helps that Forte is such a strong pass-catcher, but no running back is going to find success when they team opts to run the ball just seven times all game. Look for a major bounce-back next week against Dallas.

Jay Cutler completed 31-of-48 passes for 280 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions during the Bears' 34-17 loss to the Lions on Thursday.

Typical numbers for Cutler and given the way this game went, he wasn't all that bad. The Bears ground game was completely ineffective and Cutler was forced to air it out right from the start. Given the strength of the Lions pass defense, you knew it could be a long game for Cutler, but he hung in there and provided his fantasy owners with numbers they've grown to expect as the norm for him. He should have a much easier time with the Cowboys' pass defense next Thursday.

Update: Tim Jennings has suffered a groin injury and is questionable to return.

With little time on the clock and the Bears down three scores, there was no reason to rush Jennings back. Consider him day-to-day and the team will re-evaluate him over the weekend.

Tim Jennings has left the game with an injury.

No official word on the exact nature of the injury but we'll assume that he is being treated for severe burns as Matthew Stafford had torched the Bears secondary for 391 yards with two touchdowns before Jennings left.

Chris Conte will miss the rest of the game with an eye injury.

Conte was also being checked for a concussion. No word on the exact nature of the eye injury, so expect the Bears to update his condition soon enough.
