  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Leaves Week 12 contest with cramps

    Ngakoue exited Monday's game against Minnesota due to cramps and is questionable to return.

    Ngakoue departed in the second half of a close contest. Prior to his exit, he recorded one assisted tackle. If Ngakoue doesn't return, he's unlikely to miss additional time given the nature of the issue and the fact that Chicago has a Week 13 bye.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Third sack of season

    Ngakoue recorded three tackles and a sack in the Bears' 16-13 win over the Panthers on Thursday.

    Ngakoue snapped a four-game streak in which he failed to tally a sack. It's possible that with recently acquired Montez Sweat playing across from him, Ngakoue could see elevated sack totals down the stretch.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Manages full practice Thursday

    Ngakoue (back) was a full participant at practice Thursday.

    After being limited at practice Wednesday, Ngakoue was able to participate in full Thursday and looks to be on track to play in Week 7. He'll be one of Chicago's top pass rushers Sunday when the Bears host a sputtering Las Vegas offense.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Logs limited practice Wednesday

    Ngakoue (back) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Courtney Cronin of reports.

    Ngakoue played a season-low 40 defensive snaps in Week 6 versus Minnesota, and that he's dealing with a back injury might help to explain why. He'll get two more chances to practice in full this week before Sunday's game versus Las Vegas.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Back in sack column

    Ngakoue recorded a sack among his three tackles in the Bears' 40-20 win over the Commanders on Thursday.

    Ngakoue has two sacks on the season while averaging 2.2 tackles per game. His IDP value is at its best when he gets rolling in the sack column, as he came into this season with at least 9.5 sacks in each of the past two seasons. When he fails to collect a sack, his weekly IDP value is often low.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Collects first sack with Chicago

    Ngakoue recorded four tackles and a sack in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Packers.

    With the Packers attempting just 27 passes and most of those being for short yardage, there were few opportunities for the Bears to get sacks, and Ngakoue was the only Chicago player to record one. The veteran posted 9.5 and 10 sacks in each of the last two seasons, and as Chicago's lead pass rusher, he could flirt with similar numbers this season.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Joining Bears on one-year deal

    Ngakoue (neck) signed a one-year, $10.5 million contract with the Bears on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Ngakoue has posted at least eight sacks in each of his seven NFL seasons, so he should bolster a Bears pass rush that mustered a league-low 20 sacks in 2022. His pedestrian performance in run defense, as well as uncertainty over the status of the neck injury that cut his 2022 season short, had kept Ngakoue available in free agency up to this point, but he'll have the rest of training camp to get up to speed with Chicago.
