Josh Morgan WR CHI 3 Days
Morgan caught three passes (four targets) for 24 yards in Sunday's loss to the Packers.
After almost entirely disappearing from the game plan a week earlier against the Jets, Morgan inexplicably saw action Sunday ahead of Santonio Holmes, who appeared to have firmly established himself as the team's No. 3 receiver. Morgan very nearly added a touchdown to his ledger in the first quarter, but he was ruled out at the one-yard line after failing to extend the ball over the goal line, forcing the Bears to settle for a field goal. The lone target Morgan failed to corral on the afternoon was especially costly in the 38-17 defeat, as a poorly-run route created a window for the Packers' Tramon Williams to deflect a pass to teammate Clay Matthews for a momentum-turning interception. Given the mix of good and bad in his performance Sunday, it's difficult to say with any certainly at this time if Morgan will enter next week's matchup against the Falcons as the team's third wideout.

Morgan didn't see a single target in Monday's win over the Jets.
After missing the previous week with a groin injury, Morgan returned to the field but was a nonfactor. Quarterback Jay Cutler targeted Santonio Holmes three times in the victory, suggesting that he's the team's clear No. 3 option at receiver at the moment. However, with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery already battling injuries this season, it might not be long before Morgan assumes a larger role offensively.

Morgan (groin) is active for Monday's game versus the Jets at New York.
Morgan didn't receive a target in Week 2 and only has three to his name this season, making him a less-than-desirable wide receiver option. Moreover, Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) have cast aside their respective injuries to take the field again, which all but wipes out Morgan's relevance.

Morgan (groin) is probable for Monday's game against the Jets, ESPN.com reports.
Fellow wideouts Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall are both listed as questionable this week, but generally expected to play, which limits Morgan's fantasy utility in Week 3, assuming he suits up Monday.

Morgan (groin) practiced fully Friday.
Morgan appears probable for Monday's game against the Jets, as he practiced fully for a second day in a row Friday. He might be as low as fourth on the depth chart in Chicago, though, behind Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Santonio Holmes.

Morgan (groin) is doubtful for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
Morgan very likely won't play in this one, as he didn't practice at all this week. With Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) both very questionable for Chicago, Santonio Holmes might need to play a significant role at receiver.

Morgan (groin) missed practice Friday for the second straight day, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The report notes that Morgan suffered a setback Thursday and is in line to be listed as doubtful on the team's Week 2 injury report. With Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery both banged up, Santonio Holmes is currently the Bears' healthiest option among the team's top four wideouts.

Morgan caught one pass for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.
In seeing three targets on the afternoon compared to Santonio Holmes' five, Morgan looks like he's viewed as the team's No. 4 receiver by coach Marc Trestman. In considering how top-heavy the Bears are at the receiver spot with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery combining to receive 314 targets last season, Morgan is unlikely to carve out a significant enough of a role in the offense to deliver much fantasy utility.

Working as the No. 3 wide receiver, Morgan caught three passes for 48 yards on five targets in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks.
Meanwhile, Santonio Holmes caught one pass for seven yards on two targets, with both of those looks coming from backup quarterback Jordan Palmer. Morgan remains the clear favorite to open the season as the No. 3 wide receiver, a role that probably won't come with many targets in the Bears' loaded offense.
