Acho (ankle) isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's preseason game against the Titans, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Acho is suffering from an ankle ailment, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's no indication that the issue is considered serious, so it's probably best to consider him questionable for Sunday's preseason game against the Titans until further news clarifies the situation. Though Leonard Floyd and Willie Young figure to see the bulk of the reps in the Bears' third preseason contest, Dan Skuta and Lamarr Houston would be the next men up Sunday if Acho can't play.

Acho has agreed to a one-year contract with the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Acho will remain in Chicago after posting 39 tackles in 15 games for the Bears last season. While the presence of fellow defenders Pernell McPhee, Lamarr Houston and Willie Young blocks Acho path to consistent snaps, his experience should add depth to the Bears' linebacking corp once again.

Acho finished the 2015 season with 39 tackles over 15 games.

EDGE Analysis

After being released by the Bears shortly after training camp, Acho quickly re-signed with the club and ended up playing in every game after the season opener. He made a few starts at outside linebacker down the stretch, but typically found himself in a rotation with Pernell McPhee, Willie Young, and Lamarr Houston. All three players showcased more pass-rushing ability than Acho, who failed to notch a single sack.

Acho (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Acho was a limited participant in practice all week, but the 27-year-old looks like he'll still be in line to start at one of the outside linebacker spots. Coach John Fox has been divvying up the snaps fairly evenly of late between Acho and backup linebackers Lamarr Houston and Willie Young, so expect the trio to all see around the same amount of field time while Pernell McPhee (knee) is sidelined Sunday.
