Bears News: Chase Claypool will be a healthy scratch against Broncos

by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Bears receiver Chase Claypool will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos according to multiple reports including NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Claypool has had a rough start with the Bears since being traded to the franchise last season.

Overall, in 10 games with the Bears, he has 18 catches for 191 yards and a touchdown.

Claypool met with the media Friday and discussed the Bears offense moving forward.

"I think rehoning what I want to do really well in, and that's just the things that I can control, like the effort on plays and finishing blocks," Claypool said. "Those are things I can control and things I've been making sure to just master these few weeks. Those are things I can control. The other stuff I can't worry about. Just got to be at the right place at the right time, and hopefully that falls into place."

Claypool was asked do you feel like you’ve been put in the best position for you as a receiver to showcase the best of what you can do?

He said, "No."

Obviously, the franchise didn't like that answer to the question, and now he will have to sit and watch his teammates play.

In 2023, he has just four catches for 51 yards and a touchdown.

In other roster news, rookie Tyson Bagent will be the backup quarterback for the game today.
