Jeremiah Ratliff
Dec 15: Ratliff (knee) is listed as active for Monday's game against New Orleans. With 27 tackles and 4.5 sacks in eight games to date, Ratliff is only an option in deeper IDP formats, but he's out there if you need him Monday.

Dec 4: Ratliff (knee) is inactive for Thursday's contest against the Cowboys, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network raised hopes earlier Thursday that Ratliff would suit up. However, a key cog of the Bears' run defense will instead don sweats, with Will Sutton and Ego Ferguson helping to fill the void at defensive tackle.

Dec 4: According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Ratliff (knee) is expected to be available Thursday versus the Cowboys. Ratliff took a seat last Thursday in Detroit due to a knee injury, but with a week and a half since his last game action, the defensive tackle is slated to achieve active status in Week 14. If he suits up, he'll aid the Bears' run defense, while attempting to build upon 27 tackles (16 solo) and 4.5 sacks so far this season.

Dec 3: Ratliff (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Cowboys, ESPN.com reports. Ratliff is an option in deeper IDP formats, with 27 tackles and 4.5 sacks in eight games to his credit, but he's no lock to play Thursday after missing last week's game against the Lions.

Nov 27: Ratliff (knee) is inactive Thursday against the Lions, the Chicago Tribune reports. With 27 tackles and 4.5 sacks in eight games to date, Ratliff is only an option in deeper IDP formats, but his absence Thursday is a hit to the Bears' Week 13 pass rush.

Nov 26: Ratliff (knee) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Lions, the Bears' official site reports. Ratliff recorded a sack and four tackles this past Sunday, but he's almost assuredly out for Thursday's game, which represents a hit to the Bears' Week 13 pass rush.

Nov 25: Ratliff registered a sack in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. Ratliff and teammate Stephen Paea were terrors on the interior throughout the afternoon, finishing with a combined seven stops and three sacks. After missing much of the previous two seasons due to injury, Ratliff seems to have returned to the Pro Bowl form he displayed with the Cowboys when he was healthy. He's notched 27 tackles and 4.5 sacks this season.

Oct 26: Ratliff accumulated seven stops in Sunday's 51-23 loss to the Patriots. A week after supplying a stunning 3.5 sacks against the Dolphins, Ratliff didn't provide much of an impact as a pass rusher, logging no quarterback hits on the afternoon. That will probably be the norm for most weeks, given Ratliff's standing as an interior player, but he should remain a decent source of tackles on the defensive line. He's delivered five tackles in three of the five games he's played this season.

Oct 20: Ratliff delivered perhaps the best performance of his career Sunday versus the Dolphins, contributing a team-leading seven tackles and 3.5 sacks. Showing the pass-rushing skills that hadn't appeared since his Pro Bowl days with the Cowboys, Ratliff feasted on a vulnerable Dolphins offensive line that has struggled to protect the quarterback all season. Unfortunately, Ryan Tannehill carved up the Chicago secondary when he did receive enough time in the pocket, but Ratliff was still the Bears' shining star on an afternoon in which most of the team came out flat. It's hard to imagine him continuing to supply sacks from the defensive tackle spot with much regularity, however. From the start of the 2011 season through his first three games of 2014 -- a span of 30 contests -- Ratliff had registered 3.5 sacks in total.

Oct 12: Ratliff (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against Atlanta. With seven tackles in two games to date, Ratliff is off the IDP radar in most cases.

Oct 10: Ratliff (concussion) is probable for Sunday's game against Atlanta. Ratliff is finally ready to go after dealing with concussion symptoms the last three games, but he's probably not much of an IDP option these days.

Sep 28: Ratliff (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers. Ratliff remains under the league's concussion protocol, after sustaining a head injury in the Bears' Week 2 win over the 49ers. Rookie Will Sutton saw the bulk of the snaps in place of Ratliff at defensive tackle last week against the Jets and will likely be called upon to make the start again Sunday.

Sep 20: Ratliff (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Jets. He suffered a concussion in Sunday's game against the 49ers, and apparently did not pass through the league's concussion protocol in time to be cleared for Monday's game. Consider him week-to-week moving forward.

Sep 18: Ratliff (concussion) did not practice Thursday, the Chicago Tribune reports. Ratliff suffered a concussion in last Sunday's game and has not yet been cleared to return to practice. The defensive tackle will continue to follow league protocol in an effort to be deemed eligible to play before Monday night's game against the Jets.

Sep 15: Ratliff suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over the 49ers and didn't return. Ratliff finished with two tackles before departing. He'll remain under the league's concussion protocol over the next week of practice, but if he's unable to go in Week 3, either Ego Ferguson or Will Sutton would likely replace him in the lineup.

Sep 8: Ratliff gathered five tackles in Sunday's loss to the Bills. Ratliff's tackle total was tops among the team's defensive linemen, who turned in an overall disappointing outing on the afternoon. If Week 1 offered any indication, run defense is still a major issue of the Bears, which could lead to some personnel changes if it persists. Ratliff won't assume much of the blame for Sunday's showing, but he'll need to keep racking up the stops if he hopes to hold off rookies Will Sutton and Ego Ferguson for a starting job on the inside.
