Bears guard Matt Slauson has a torn right pectoral muscle. He does not need surgery and will rehab for 3-4 months.

The Bears have lost Matt Slauson for the rest of the regular season. Head coach Marc Trestman said today that the Bears will look to move Jordan Mills from right tackle to left guard with Slauson done for the year.

Darryl Sharpton (hamstring) will not play Week 10 vs the Packers.

After the game, Darryl Sharpton was optimistic that his hamstring would be ok and could play this week against the Packers in Week 9. The Bears consider him Week-to-Week going forward.

Lamarr Houston has officially been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee.

This just confirms the news that everyone basically knew yesterday. We've heard the stories, the jokes and the comparisons but it doesn't make it hurt any less to the Bears defense.

Brandon Marshall caught just three passes on a team-high 10 targets for 35 yards against the Patriots on Sunday.

Despite being targeted a team-high 10 times in Week 8, Marshall failed to cross over the 50-yard receiving mark for the second straight week as the Bears continues to struggle in the month of October. Thankfully for the Bears, a Week 9 bye week is upon them, which could not have come at a better time after losing four of their last five games. Considering both his size and skill set it is hard to believe that his struggles will continue much longer, making him someone to target if a frustrated owner is selling low on one of the game's top wide receivers.

Alshon Jeffery caught five passes on eight targets for 59 yards and a touchdown during the Bears' 51-23 loss to the Patriots on Sunday.

After converting just two of his seven targets in Week 7, Jeffery got back on track in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, logging five receptions on eight target for just his second touchdown in October. Although Jeffery has now hauled in 38 receptions for 563 yards on the season, he has been unable to be a consistent red zone threat with both Martellus Bennett and Brandon Marshall receiving most of the looks close to the goal line, but considering his size and skill he is a must-start every time he takes the field.

Martellus Bennett caught six passes on seven targets for 95 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Prior to Bennett's solid performance in Week 8, the Bears tight end had failed to find the end zone four straight weeks making him a fringe fantasy starter heading into his team's showdown with the Patriots. However, Bennett was able to get back on track in this one, falling just five yards shy of crossing over the 100-yard receiving mark for the second time this season, while hauling in his fifth touchdown of the season. If the Jay Cutler and the Bears want to get back in the hunt for the playoffs, the defense is going to have to turn things around, but either way Bennett should stay heavily involved in the team's offensive scheme, whether with the lead or playing from behind.

Matt Forte carried the ball 19 times for 114 yards and caught six passes for 54 yards and a touchdown against the Patriots on Sunday.

After another stellar performance in Week 8, Forte remains one of the best fantasy options at his position through the first eight weeks of the season. Although he got off to a slow start, Forte has now scored six touchdowns over his last four games while adding over 100 total yards in six of his first eight games. With a bye week on deck for Week 9, Forte owners will have to find a replacement for just one week, but once they are back on the schedule expect much of the same from the Bears top contributor.

Jay Cutler completed 20-of-30 passes for 227 yards with three touchdowns and one interception during the Bears' 51-23 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. He also lost one fumble.

Although Cutler completed 66.7 percent of his passes, it was not enough to keep the Bears within reach in Sunday's blowout loss to the Patriots. He is now sitting with a 17:8 TD:INT rate through his first eight games of the season, this coming after a three-touchdown performance in Week 8, ending a stretch in which he threw for only one touchdown in back-to-back games. Despite the Bears recent struggles, Cutler remains a must-start in deep league formats considering the weapons at his disposal when his team come off their Bye Week against the Packers on November 9.

Bears OG Matt Slauson was wearing a sling over his right shoulder following Sunday's game.

In what was a horrendous showing by the Bears, the injury to Slauson is just adding to the negative aspects of the loss. He will be listed as questionable moving forward, and will be evaluated more on Monday.

The Bears' offensive line has been a mess this season, and that is unlikely to change anytime soon given all of the injuries they have to deal with.

Bears DE Lamarr Houston (knee) said he didn't feel like he tore anything, but will have an MRI Monday.

It is incredibly difficult to trust Houston, especially after he showed such poor judgement in injuring himself on a ridiculous sack celebration in the fourth quarter with his team down by 25 points.
