  • Bears' Nsimba Webster: Staying in Chicago

    The Bears signed Webster to a reserve/future contract Monday, Larry Mayer of the team's official website reports.

    Webster spent the entire year on Chicago's practice squad. He has been with the team three years overall and suited up for eight total games over the previous two seasons. The 27-year-old will now use the offseason as an opportunity to earn a bigger role with the team.

  • Nsimba Webster: Returns to Chicago

    Webster is signing with the Bears' practice squad Wednesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Webster was let go by Chicago on Tuesday but will rejoin the team's practice squad a day later. He's made eight appearances for the Bears over the last two seasons and is a candidate to join the active roster in 2023 if the team needs additional receiving depth at some point.

  • Nsimba Webster: Expected to be cut

    The Bears are expected to waive Webster on Monday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Webster has bounced back and forth between the Bears' practice squad and active roster several times over the previous two years. He is considered a strong candidate to again land on the team's practice squad. The 27-year-old has occasionally returned punts during his two-year stint with the Bears and has also accumulated two receptions for 14 yards.

  • Bears' Nsimba Webster: Staying in Chicago

    The Bears signed Webster to a reserve/future contract Monday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

    Webster was waived as part of Chicago's final roster cuts in late August before quickly re-joining via the practice squad. The fourth-year wideout then remained idle on the practice squad before being elevated in back-to-back games Week 15 and 16, recording the first two receptions of his career over during this span. Webster has now appeared in eight games over the past two seasons for the Bears, and he'll likely compete for another depth and special-teams role heading into the 2023 season.

  • Nsimba Webster: Back down to practice squad

    Webster was sent down to Chicago's practice squad Monday.

    One week after playing the fourth-most snaps among Bears wide receivers, Webster was relegated to work on special teams, playing a total seven snaps. It's possible Webster might be elevated again in the future, but much of that will depend on the status of Chase Claypool (knee) and Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion).

  • Bears' Nsimba Webster: Elevated to active roster again

    Chicago elevated Webster from its practice squad to the active roster Friday ahead of Saturday's game against Buffalo, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    With Chase Claypool (knee) doubtful and Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) out for Saturday's matchup, Webster will be elevated to the active roster for a second consecutive week. The undrafted wideout out of Eastern Washington caught two of three targets for 14 yards across 10 offensive snaps during last week's loss to Philadelphia, marking his first career NFL receptions. Given Chicago's depleted wideout corps, Webster figures to garner a similar role in Week 16.

  • Nsimba Webster: Shifts back to practice squad

    Webster reverted to Chicago's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Webster was activated for the first time after spending the first 14 weeks of the season on the Bears' practice squad, as Chase Claypool (knee) and N'Keal Harry (coach's decision) were both inactive Sunday versus Philadelphia. With starting wideout Equanimeous St. Brown forced out early with a concussion, the 5-foot-10 Webster went on to catch two of his three targets for 14 yards. However, he still played the fourth-most offensive snaps of the team's wideouts behind Byron Pringle (53), Dante Pettis (47) and Velus Jones (40). Webster will now be eligible for two more elevations from the team's practice squad, and he'll likely continue to see playing time if this banged-up receiving corps does not get healthier before Saturday's game against Buffalo.

  • Bears' Nsimba Webster: Records first NFL receptions

    Webster caught two passes for 14 yards in the Bears' 25-20 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

    Primarily a special-teams player during this three years in the league, Webster came into this game having played just nine offensive snaps over 27 career games. If the Bears continue to have wide receivers miss games due to injury, he could continue to see snaps at receiver. Unless his role grows, his fantasy value will remain minimal.

  • Bears' Nsimba Webster: Will be available vs. Philadelphia

    Chicago elevated Webster from its practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    With Chase Claypool (knee) and Darnell Mooney (ankle) both out, Chicago saw fit to bring Webster up from the practice squad to provide some depth at wide receiver. He's played just nine offensive snaps and has not recorded a target in three seasons.

  • Nsimba Webster: Added to Chicago's practice squad

    Webster was signed to the Bears' practice squad Wednesday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

  • Nsimba Webster: Waived by Chicago

    The Bears waived Webster on Tuesday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

    Webster spent most of the 2021 season on the Bears' practice squad and will likely garner a similar role if he clears waivers. The undrafted return man from Eastern Washington has appeared in 27 career regular season games but has played 360 snaps on special teams compared to just nine on offense.

  • Bears' Nsimba Webster: Leads team in targets

    Webster caught four passes for 25 yards in the Bears' 27-11 preseason win over the Seahawks on Thursday.

    Webster played with the second- and third-team offense, and most of his targets came from Nathan Peterman in the second half. Each of his receptions came on short passes. He'll continue to battle for a roster spot.

  • Bears' Nsimba Webster: Likely on roster bubble

    Webster's shortcoming with catch radius has been obvious during training camp, Gene Chamberlain of SI.com reports.

    Although Webster has made a number of catches in practice, when he catches the ball, he's rarely had a chance to flash the speed that makes him a viable return man. Based on camp reports, it would appear his best chance to make the team would be on special teams. In his three-year career, he's played 360 snaps on special teams, compared to just nine offensive snaps.

  • Bears' Nsimba Webster: Remains with Bears
