  • Bears' Teven Jenkins: Active for Thursday night

    Jenkins (calf) is active for Thursday night's game against the Commanders.

    This will be Jenkins' season debut after spending the first four weeks on injured reserve. It's a big boost to an offensive line that has been one of the worst in football four games into the year. Jenkins should slide right back into a starting role at guard.

  • Bears' Teven Jenkins: Designated for return

    Jenkins (calf) was designated to return from IR on Monday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    Jenkins has missed the mandatory four games since being placed on injured reserve and he'll be able to return to play as soon as Thursday against the Commanders. However, that quick of a return is not guaranteed, and the team now has 21 days to add him to the 53-man roster. Once he proves he is healthy, he should take over as the team's starter at left guard.

  • Bears' Teven Jenkins: Week-to-week with leg injury

    Head coach Matt Eberflus noted Tuesday that Jenkins is considered week-to-week dealing with a leg injury, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Jenkins participated in joint practices with the Colt last week but did not play in Saturday's preseason loss against Indianapolis. Alex Leatherwood and Ja'Tyre Carter are set to compete for the starting left guard spot should Jenkins miss the start of the 2023 season.

  • Bears' Teven Jenkins: Dealing with leg injury

    Jenkins is dealing with a leg injury that could force him to miss the start of the regular season, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Jenkins missed time earlier in camp but participated in joint practices with the Colts this week. However, he didn't suit up for Saturday's preseason loss to Indianapolis and is apparently dealing with a leg issue. He's been limited to just 19 games over his first two seasons in the NFL, and it seems as though he'll be held out to begin the 2023 campaign. If Jenkins is sidelined, Alex Leatherwood and Ja'Tyre Carter are candidates to start at left guard.

  • Bears' Teven Jenkins: Returns to field

    Jenkins (neck) was spotted participating during Chicago's minicamp practice Tuesday, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports.

    Jenkins was placed on injured reserve ahead of the Bears' Week 18 game against the Vikings with a neck injury but has since had the offseason to move past the issue. The 2021 second-round pick has struggled to stay on the field, missing 11 games his rookie season and four this past season. Barring any setbacks, the Oklahoma State product projects to be the starting left guard for Chicago in 2023.
