The Chicago Bears' season is all but over in terms of having anything meaningful other than draft position to play for in 2022. Chicago suffered its seventh consecutive loss on Sunday in Week 15, falling to the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 25-20 at home.

Bears Injury Updates

While the Bears haven't been at full strength lately, they do have a lot of important players prepared to return to the lineup in Week 16.

Running back Khalil Herbert is set to be activated off the IR, while wideouts Chase Claypool and N'Keal Harry are both on track to play in Week 16. Even offensive lineman Teven Jenkins is receiving some encouraging news.

All of these players were questionable heading into the week, so getting all or some of them back would give the Bears a significant boost in Week 16.

Claypool and Harry should provide some much-needed weapons for Justin Fields to work with if they come back, while Herbert greatly improves the ground attack alongside David Montgomery.

Chicago has a tough matchup looming in Week 16 against the Buffalo Bills, so they will need to be as healthy as possible if they want to avoid their eighth consecutive loss. The Bears are currently listed as 8.5-point home underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
