Demps (arm) said he doesn't expected to be activated from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Demps first resumed practicing Thursday, and with a full 21 days to evaluate his condition before deciding if he'll be added to the 53-man roster or kept on injured reserve the rest of the season, the Bears will likely take things slowly with the veteran safety. With a career-high six interceptions to go with 55 tackles in 13 games last season with the Texans, Demps could have some IDP appeal down the stretch if he rejoins the Bears with a prominent role in the secondary in hand.

The Bears designated Demps (arm) to return from injured reserve Thursday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Demps is set to practice Thursday for the first time since Week 3, when he was ultimately forced to injured reserve after fracturing his arm in a win over the Steelers. The Bears will have 21 days to evaluate Demps during practice before determining if he's fit for a return to game action. His potential activation could prove helpful to a Bears safety corps that has two members of the active roster, Adrian Amos (hamstring) and Deandre Houston-Carson (ankle), banged up heading into Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.

Demps (arm) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Demps, who joined the Bears on a three-year deal this offseason, started three games at strong safety before breaking his arm in Week 3 against the Steelers. There's a chance the veteran could be activated from IR later on this season, but that's far from certain. As it stands, Demps will finish his first season in Chicago with 12 tackles to his name.

Demps (arm) was officially ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Demps was never expected to be available Thursday and there remains no specific timetable for his return as a decision on whether surgery is necessary has yet to be made. Regardless, the veteran safety is likely to be sidelined multiple weeks in a best case scenario, with Adrian Amos, who replaced him against Pittsburgh on Sunday, the probable fill-in at strong safety.

Bears coach John Fox said it hasn't been decided whether Demps will require surgery on his left arm, which he fractured in Sunday's win over the Steelers, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Addressing the injury through rest and rehab rather than surgery would likely expedite Demps' recovery timetable, but he still looks destined to miss multiple weeks with the injury. Demps' expected absence will likely pave the way for third-year player Adrian Amos, who has started 30 games the previous two seasons, to rejoin the first-team defense.

Demps suffered a broken arm in Sunday's game against the Steelers, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM reports.

EDGE Analysis

Demps was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Steelers and did not return. After recording 10 tackles in the first two games of the season, it looks like the safety could possibly be done for the year, as Hoge reported that head coach John Fox is unsure about whether Demps will land on injured reserve or not.

Demps (arm) left Sunday's game against the Steelers and did not return,

EDGE Analysis

Demps recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) over the first two weeks, and now he'll have a short week to get back to full health ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Packers. Keep an eye on him throughout the week, and expect Deandre Houston-Carson to fill in if Demps can't play.

Demps recorded seven stops in Sunday's defeat to the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

The Bears played most of this contest with a significant deficit, allowing Demps to take advantage of obvious running situations, as he posted solid tackle numbers. With Chicago suffering from a weak offense, he could become a strong IDP option, especially in games that the team's expected to be trailing.

Goldman posted three tackles along with a sack in Sunday's 29-7 defeat to the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the game being a blowout loss, Jameis Winston still dropped back 30 times to pass, and Goldman was able to record his first sack of the season. Although he struggled to stay healthy during the first two years of his career, should he be able to stay on the field, he has upside as an IDP option at defensive tackle.
