The Chicago Bears have indeed decided to allow cornerback Kyle Fuller to come off of the injured reserve list. The former 1st round draft pick was back at practice today and the Bears will have 21 days to evaluate him before having to decide if they want to activate him to the 53 man roster.
Fuller started all 16 games last year and he had 14 starts (in 16 games) as a rookie in 2013. In his two year career he has 6 interceptions, 19 passes defended, 3 forced fumbles and 118 tackles. He was drafted before the current regime took over, so the speculation is that he may not be a perfect fit for what the Bears want their corners to do.
The media, social and traditional, have wondered if a move to free safety may be in the cards for Fuller, even though he finished strong last year at corner. The Bears haven’t commented on a potential position change, but our very own Robert Zeglinski tackled the topic last month.
What are your thoughts on Fuller’s possible return?
