  • Bears' Doug Kramer: Activated Saturday

    Kramer (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

    The 2022 sixth-round pick out of Illinois has been on IR since the beginning of September with an unknown injury, but it now seems as if he's had enough time to move past the issue. Kramer has been added to Chicago's active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders, and he'll likely play some form of depth role on the team's offensive line.

  • Bears' Doug Kramer: Could return this week

    Kramer (undisclosed) was designated to return from injured reserve Monday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Kramer was competing for a depth role on the team's offensive line when he suffered an undisclosed injury during a preseason contest. He'll now have a 21-day window to practice with the team before being added to the active roster, but he could play as soon as Sunday against the Vikings. However, it's unclear what kind of role Kramer may have once he proves he's ready to play.

  • Bears' Doug Kramer: Placed on injured reserve

    The Bears placed Kramer (undisclosed) on injured reserve Thursday, Larry Mayer and Kevin Myers of the team's official site report.

    Kramer will now miss at least the first four games of the season after getting hurt during Saturday's preseason finale. The 2022 sixth-round pick could be in danger of getting waived once healthy as he is currently behind both Cody Whitehair and Lucas Patrick on the depth chart.

  • Bears' Doug Kramer: Pulled from game Saturday

    Kramer was removed from Saturday's preseason contest against the Bills after suffering an undisclosed injury, according to Adam Hoge of

    Kramer apparently suffered an injury during the first half, leaving it unclear if he'll return before the end of Saturday's contest. The 2022 sixth-round pick currently projects as the Bears' third-string center behind Cody Whitehair and Lucas Patrick. Therefore, Kramer is likely a longshot to make the final 53-man roster.

  • Bears' Doug Kramer: Back on the field

    Kramer (lower leg), who spent the entire 2022 season on injured reserve, is participating in OTAs, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports.

    The 2022 sixth-round pick will be looking to make his NFL debut in 2023 if he can win a spot on the Bears' season-opening 53-man roster. Kramer will most likely be competing for a depth role at center.

  • Bears' Doug Kramer: Heading to IR

    Chicago placed Kramer (lower leg) on its injured reserve list Tuesday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    The move means Kramer will miss the entire 2022 season unless he works out an injury settlement with the Bears. Until Lucas Patrick (thumb) is back in action, Sam Mustipher will likely see extended reps snapping the ball during practice.

  • Bears' Doug Kramer: Dealing with lower-leg injury

    Kramer is dealing with a lower-leg injury and there's no timetable for his return, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Kramer was selected in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft after a solid career at Illinois. He played a team-high 48 offensive snaps during the Bears preseason opener, so expect Sam Mustipher, among others, to get extended reps if Kramer is sidelined for Thursday's exhibition game against Seattle.

  • Bears' Doug Kramer: Staying in-state, headed to Chicago

    The Bears selected Kramer in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 207th overall.

    Kramer is an undersized center from Illinois, but he might make it as an NFL center anyway thanks to his standout athleticism (4.95-second 40). He'll be a worthwhile developmental center for the Bears.
