Kyle Fuller is probable for Sunday after suffering a broken right hand and right hip pointer injury last weekend in the loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Fuller will be out there in full force, cast and all, but might not be at 100-percent with the hip pointer. Teddy Williams might be rotated in a little more often depending on how badly the Patriots try to pick on Fuller.

Lance Briggs (ribs) and Jon Bostic are both doubtful to play on Sunday.

Both Briggs and Bostic have been out for the last few games and neither was expected to return this week, especially with a bye coming up in Week 9. The best the Bears can hope for at this point is a Week 10 return.

Martellus Bennett (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday.

Bennett's hamstring issue was considered minor, so there shouldn't be much concern with him for this week. He's got a nice match-up against the Patriots who rank 27th in the league against the tight end and have given up an average of 69.8 yards per game to the position.

Kyle Fuller (hip/hand) was limited at Thursday's practice.

The Bears face the Patriots on Sunday and will need Fuller against a surging Patriots passing attack.

Kyle Fuller (hip/hand) did not practice on Wednesday.

The Bears are already down their All-Pro corner back Charles Tillman for the season. Kyle Fuller had played well and has been a real nice surprise as a rookie. The Bears will be in big trouble if he can't go this weekend knowing they've got Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 8.

Martellus Bennett (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.

This is a weird one because Bennett played his full complement of snaps Week 7 against the Dolphins, so no one really knows when he got hurt. Bennett has been held out of the end zone for the past four games and is averaging just four catches for 42 yards on six targets per game the past three weeks. Always a hot starter, Bennett is merely a low-end TE1 option.

Coach Marc Trestman said that CB Kyle Fuller's hand injury likely won't require surgery.

Apparently the break in Fuller's hand was a clean one and can just be immobilized to allow him to heal. He is also trying to make it back from a hip pointer so consider him day-to-day this week.

Jeremiah Ratliff recorded seven tackles (five solo) and 3.5 sacks during the Bears' 27-14 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

While the Bears struggled against the Dolphins all day, Ratliff had himself a ton of fun on the defensive line as he was all over Miami QB Ryan Tannehill like white on rice. These were his first 3.5 sacks of the year and he now has 14 tackles on the season. He's not a massive IDP option, but he should continue to rack up decent sack totals over the Bears next nine games.

Alshon Jeffery caught two passes on seven targets for just nine yards against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Well now this was just a disgusting performance for fantasy owners as Jeffery posted a feeble 2.9 fantasy points in full-point PPR leagues. Quarterback Jay Cutler had himself a horrible day, so we can probably just give Jeffery a mulligan here, especially after his 136-yard performance in Week 6. It happens, people. Nothing you can do about it now and nothing you should worry about moving forward.

Brandon Marshall caught six passes on 10 targets for 48 yards during the Bears' 27-14 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

Marshall saw a team-high 10 targets here and has commanded Jay Cutler's attention since making his way back from an ankle injury, but apparently that wasn't enough as Marshall apparently called out Cutler in front of everyone in the locker room following Sunday's loss. This kind of behavior isn't really new for the often-outspoken veteran receiver, but he should find a way to wrangle in that frustration before Cutler turns to Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett a whole lot more.
