McPhee (knee) collected a sack and two tackles Sunday against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

McPhee now has posted a sack in back-to-back games, and he's quickly looking like the player who recorded five sacks in seven games before injuring his knee in 2015. He has the potential to be a high-end IDP option, and is someone who shouldn't remain on many waiver wires.

McPhee (knee) will play on Sunday against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

McPhee will be able to play despite practicing in limited fashion throughout the week. Sam Acho will provide depth at outside linebacker, and potentially see additional reps if McPhee is to suffer any kind of setback.

McPhee (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

McPhee was able to practice in limited fashion throughout the week, but his status for Week 10 remains up in the air heading into the weekend. If he's ultimately ruled out, Sam Acho would be the main back-up option at outside linebacker.

McPhee recorded a sack and a tackle Monday against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

McPhee will certainly continue to work his way back into football shape after missing the entire preseason, but he quickly reminded fantasy owners of the force he's capable of being in Vic Fangio's defense. Before playing with an injured knee in 2015, he had a five-game stretch in which he had five sacks. He could be a player to add in IDP leagues after the Bears' Week 9 bye, as he could have a strong finish to the season.

McPhee (knee) is listed as active for Monday's matchup with the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

McPhee was listed as questionable heading into Monday's game after making his season debut in Week 7's loss to the Packers. Although he was limited in practice all week, he will give it a go again. He figures to provide depth at outside linebacker for the Bears.

McPhee (knee) has officially been listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

McPhee made his season debut in Week 7's loss to the Packers. He was limited in practice all week, so a questionable designation was the next logical step. If he is ultimately ruled out Sunday Sam Acho figures to see an increased workload providing depth at outside linebacker.

The Bears activated McPhee (knee) from the PUP list Thursday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

McPhee has completed his rehab from arthroscopic knee surgery in the offseason, and just in time for Thursday's divisional matchup against the banged-up Packers. While the outside linebacker will be available, it's unclear what type of snap count he can handle in his season debut. However, he could get the start on the weak side if Leonard Floyd (calf) misses his third consecutive game.

McPhee (knee) was placed on the Bears' reserve/PUP list over the weekend, the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

That designation ensures that McPhee, the team's top prize in free agency last offseason, will be sidelined for at least the team's first six games while he recovers from the knee injury. McPhee has a history of knee issues and saw his snaps limited in the second half of his first season with the Bears to the same injury, so there's some justifiable concern that he may not be ready to go by Week 7. In the meantime, coach John Fox will look to projected starters Lamarr Houston and Willie Young along with rookie first-round pick Leonard Floyd to provide some pass-rushing from the outside linebacker spots while McPhee is sidelined.

McPhee may be running out of time to be available for Week 1, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

McPhee was only able to do side work again on Monday, putting his availability for Week 1 in question as he tries to return from the physically unable to perform list. However, teammate Willie Young added that McPhee is trying to overcome a knee condition that used to be career-ending, though the team has never revealed the actual extent of his injury.
