The Bears released their latest injury report this Wednesday, with some more notable names added to the list, including running back David Montgomery and tight end Trey Burton.
In a new development, David Montgomery had limited participation in Wednesday’s practice due to an ankle injury. The cause or severity of the injury is unknown at this time.
Trey Burton DNP in Wednesday’s practice due to a calf injury he suffered during Sunday’s matchup against the Lions. He was previously on the injured list in October due to a groin injury, becoming a full participant in practice during Week 10.
Danny Trevathan is still unable to participate in practice after leaving Week 10’s game during the first quarter due to a gruesome elbow injury. There has yet to be an official update from the Bears on the severity of Trevathan’s injury, but Nagy didn’t seem particularly optimistic on during Monday’s press conference following the game, admitting Trevathan could potentially join Akiem Hicks on IR depending on the results of his MRI.
Isaiah Irving also DNP due to a quad injury. He has been on the injured list since Week 9.

When it was announced that the NFL would be hosting a showcase for quarterback Colin Kaepernick, with invites sent to all 30 teams, speculation on the legitimacy of the event – and which teams would send scouts – ran rampant.
When asked about whether the Bears would be sending someone to Atlanta to watch Kaepernick, Matt Nagy remained non-committal.
"I honestly have no idea right now," he said. "I’m just kind of focused in on where we’re at. I’ll leave that up to Ryan [Pace] and those guys. I know they’ll have a handle on that.”
It's been three years since Kaepernick has played in the NFL, as the quarterback last appeared for the 49ers back in 2016. Kaepernick and Eric Reid filed a collusion suit against the NFL that accused the league of blackballing both of them over taking a knee during the national anthem. The suit was settled before going to trial, but Kaepernick's still had trouble getting the attention of teams looking for quarterback help. Pundits have frequently linked Kaepernick to the Bears – who are certainly not set at the quarterback position – but any real interest in signing the free agent remains to be seen.
"It’ll be interesting. He’s been out of the game a little bit but when he was doing well and playing he definitely was a weapon," Nagy added. "I’ll be curious to see how he does. I have no idea. Again, for me, I wish him the best and all that and you always root good for people but from where I’m at right now personally we’re so focused in on the Rams.”
