Back with Bears on one-year deal

Latest Headline: Published 2023-04-17

Chicago re-signed Pettis to a one-year contract Monday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

Pettis logged seven starts while appearing in all 17 of the Bears' games last season, recording a 19-245-3 receiving line while also turning two carries into 37 yards and contributing as a punt returner. The arrival of new top wideout DJ Moore could mean Pettis will receive less opportunities to connect with Justin Fields in the 2023 campaign, but he still projects to play a key depth role.

Ticketed for free agency

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-08

Pettis caught two passes for 19 yards in the Bears' 29-13 loss to the Vikings in Week 18, and ended the season with 19 receptions, 245 yards and three touchdowns over 17 games played.

Pettis was available for more than 12 games for the first time in his five-year career, but he was a depth receiver, which led to him seeing slightly more than two targets per game. Although he had a pair of games with at least 51 yards and a touchdown, he was held to fewer than 15 yards in most of his games. After staying healthy and reasonably reliable, he should continue to serve as a depth option next year and beyond. He's now an unrestricted free agent.

Back at practice Wednesday

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-04

Pettis (head) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.

Pettis briefly checked into a hospital following Sunday's loss to the Lions with blurred vision, but he was able to fly back to Chicago later that night and appears to have avoided a concussion or a related injury. Barring a setback, Pettis should be full go heading into Chicago's season finale this weekend against the Vikings.

Brief stay at hospital

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-02

Pettis returned to Chicago on a separate flight Sunday night after briefly checking into a hospital with blurred vision, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Pettis failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's loss to the Lions and played a season-low 14 snaps. He was taken to a hospital following the game, but he cleared concussion protocol and was able to fly home Sunday night. However, it's unclear if the fifth-year wideout will be able to practice during Week 18 prep.

Targeted once in defeat

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-01

Pettis failed to catch his lone target in the Bears' 41-10 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Pettis has surpassed 20 yards once since Week 1, though he has scored four touchdowns this season. He'll be considered a touchdown-dependent dart throw for fantasy in Week 18 against Minnesota.

Avoids concussion

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-01

Pettis entered the league's concussion protocols and was sent to the hospital for precautionary reasons, after he was dealing with blurred vision in Sunday's game against the Lions, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Pettis was ultimately able to clear the league's concussion protocols, despite him dealing with blurred vision. He was held without a catch and received one target in the team's 41-10 loss.

Will play Sunday

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-01

Pettis (ankle) is active Sunday against the Lions.

Pettis injured his ankle in practice Wednesday, but after he was able to log a limited practice Friday, he's good to go Week 17 against Detroit. His ability to suit up should bolster the Bears' depth at receiver.

Uncertain for Sunday

Latest Headline: Published 2022-12-30

Pettis (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Detroit.

Pettis hurt his ankle Wednesday, was held out Thursday and then returned to practice Friday as a limited participant. He and Chase Claypool (knee) both are uncertain ahead of the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff this Sunday, while fellow Bears wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown has been cleared from concussion protocol.

Doesn't practice Thursday

Latest Headline: Published 2022-12-29

Pettis (ankle) didn't practice Thursday.

According to Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune, Pettis hurt his ankle at Wednesday's session, which was the reason he went down as limited. Pettis has just one more chance to mix into drills this week, but on a positive note fellow injured wide receivers Chase Claypool (knee) and Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) both returned Thursday as limited participants, so the Bears appear to be inching toward better health at the position.
