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.

Martellus Bennett caught five passes on eight targets for 58 yards against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Things just haven't been the same for Bennett since his Week 4 136-yard performance. Since then, he's averaged just four catches for 42.3 yards per game and hasn't reached the end zone in his last four. He's still one of the better options at the position, but you have to accept that while he's not this boring, mid-level 50-yard guy, he's also not the multi-touchdown guy we saw through the first three games of the season. He'll settle in somewhere in the middle. On a positive note, he's facing a Patriots team next week that ranks 22nd in the league against the tight end position.

Matt Forte carried the ball 12 times for 49 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes on seven targets for 60 yards and another score during the Bears' 27-14 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

While the yardage total wasn't exactly spectacular, Forte does it again for his fantasy owners as he found the end zone twice and continues to rack up both targets and catches. With 448 rushing yards, 436 receiving yards and a total of five touchdowns, he has easily shown why he was Fantasy Alarm's No. 1 running back this season.

Jay Cutler completed 21-of-34 passes for 190 yards with one touchdown and one interception during the Bears' 27-14 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. He also carried the ball twice for three yards and lost a fumble.

OK, so here's the bottom line. Cutler is a good fantasy quarterback. Not a great one, but a good one. You have to accept the fact that he's going to throw interceptions and while he has such tremendous weapons, he's still going to throw up stinker games like these on a fairly regular basis. You simply have to accept the bad that comes with the good outings. It should be interesting to see if there's any fallout from the post-game locker room argument he had with Brandon Marshall after the receiver apparently called him out in front of the team. Internal strife is never good. Especially when you have to face a Bill Belickick defense next as the Bears head to New England for Week 8.

Brandon Marshall called out quarterback Jay Cutler in the Bears' locker room after Sunday's loss, according to a source.

Cutler had a down game, but Marshall was still the beneficiary of Cutler's targets. Marshall saw ten targets in the game, but this was most likely caused due to frustration.

Kyle Fuller broke his hand and suffered a hip pointer on Sunday.

Fuller was having a strong rookie season, but the broken hand may cause him to miss the rest of the year depending on the severity and whether or no surgery is required.

Kyle Fuller (hip) will not return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Fuller appeared to be in considerable pain following his hip injury, and he was unable to return. It does not appear much else can go wrong for the Bears, which of course means it will.
