Josh Morgan WR CHI 21 Hrs1 Comment

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 inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports.

Meanwhile, Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) are both active, leaving Santonio Holmes as the likely No. 3 wide receiver.

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.

Coach Marc Trestman said Morgan ranks as the top option to open the season as the Bears' No. 3 receiver, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Morgan's standing on the depth chart was thought to be in some question after the Bears inked Santonio Holmes over the weekend, but he'll maintain a momentary hold on the third receiver gig, largely by virtue of Holmes' limited practice time. Last season's No. 3 receiver, Earl Bennett, rarely saw much involvement in the passing game with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery soaking up the targets, so Morgan may need an injury to one of those two players to attain more fantasy relevance.

Morgan caught all three of his target and gained 41 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars.

Morgan looks well on his way to securing the No. 3 receiver role for the Bears to begin the season, as leading candidate Marquess Wilson will likely miss the first few weeks due to a broken collarbone. Because of the volume of targets Alshon Jeffery, Brandon Marshall, Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte collect in the receiving game, Morgan doesn't figure to see many looks unless somebody in that quartet suffers an injury.

Bears WR Josh Morgan was arrested on a simple assault charge after allegedly punching a nightclub parking valet in the mouth after the valet "looked in the direction" of Morgan's girlfriend.

Morgan was booked into a police precinct and released with a citation. The club bouncer allegedly allowed Morgan into the establishment after the assault, and Morgan denies a punch was ever thrown. "I didn't touch him," Morgan claimed, per NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini. "I didn't do anything. This is crazy. I'm not worried about nothing." The Bears signed Morgan last Monday.
