Bears CB Kyle Fuller headed to IR

Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller, who hasn’t played since having arthroscopic knee surgery before the second preseason game, will go to injured reserve, the team confirmed late Tuesday.

On Thursday, Bears coach John Fox said Fuller, a former first-round pick, wasn’t 100 percent in practice.

“I think he’s ahead of where he was pre-surgery,” Fox said. “Right now I don’t know that he’s all the way back yet but I do see improvement. We’ll watch the tape from today and see where that is, as well as tomorrow and Saturday.”

“He’s doing more and had more reps with the defense.”

Jacoby Glenn, who has played cornerback for the first three games, is expected to continue in that role. Fuller’s future with the Bears, it appears, is as cloudy as ever.
