Adam Shaheen: Scores another TD in Sunday's win

Shaheen caught all three of his targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-0 win over the Jets.

Analysis: He surprisingly lead the Dolphins in receiving yards on the afternoon as the offense mostly focused on chewing up the clock after taking a 21-0 lead into halftime, and Shaheen also found the end zone for the second straight game. Mike Gesicki, meanwhile, failed to catch either of his two targets Sunday. Shaheen's elite athletic profile made him a second-round pick of the Bears in 2017, but he wasn't able to stay healthy enough to take advantage of it in Chicago. Given his performance the last couple of games, he may cut into Gesicki's snaps and targets further coming out of Miami's Week 7 bye.

Adam Shaheen: Notches first TD of 2020

Shaheen hauled in his lone target for a three-yard touchdown Sunday in the Dolphins' 43-17 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: After playing no more than 40 percent of the offensive snaps in the Dolphins' first four games, Shaheen was all the way up to 57 percent Week 5. That was likely a byproduct of the Dolphins' top blocking tight end, Durham Smythe (knee), being sidelined, but Shaheen still took advantage of the extra work by reaching the end zone for the first time in 2020. Even if Smythe misses more time after the Dolphins' Week 6 bye, Shaheen likely won't ascend to fantasy relevance while Mike Gesicki is locked in as the team's top pass-catching tight end.

Adam Shaheen: Shipped to Miami

Shaheen (foot) was acquired by the Dolphins from the Bears on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old was drafted during the second round by the Bears in 2017, but he's played only 27 games in three seasons and has 26 catches for 249 yards an four touchdowns and missed the final eight games of 2019. Shaheen likely won't be guaranteed a roster spot and should be in competition with Chandler Cox, Michael Roberts and Chris Myarick for a reserve role.

Adam Shaheen: Targeting training camp return

General manager Ryan Pace said Tuesday that he expects Shaheen (foot) to be on the Bears' roster when training camp starts, Jeff Dickerson of reports.

Analysis: Shaneen will enter the last year of his rookie deal in 2020. The 2017 second-round pick has played in just 27 of a possible 48 contests in his career, during which time he's caught 26 passes for 249 yards and four touchdowns. Shaheen missed the last eight games of 2019 on injured reserve, so it will be imperative for him to return to full health for offseason workouts.

Adam Shaheen: Hits injured reserve

Shaheen (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Analysis: That's now two Bears tight ends on injured reserve, as Shaheen joins Trey Burton (calf) with a season-ending injury. The 2017 second-round pick has been a massive disappointment, playing in just 14 games over the past two seasons while catching only 14 passes for 122 receiving yards and a touchdown during that time span. J.P. Holtz, Jesper Horsted and Bradley Sowell are the most likely recipients to pick up additional playing time, with Horsted actually scoring a touchdown on his only reception in Thursday's Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions.

Adam Shaheen: Unable to play Thursday

Shaheen (foot) is ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Lions.

Analysis: The Bears will be without both Shaheen and Ben Braunecker (concussion) for this Thanksgiving Day game. J.P. Holtz, Jesper Horsted and Bradley Sowell will work in as a result. Holtz has played nine games with Chicago this season and averaged a shade under 20 offensive snaps per game, recording two catches for 23 yards, while Horsted and Sowell have suited up for just four games combined.

Adam Shaheen: Misses another practice

Shaheen (foot) was listed as a non-participant in Tuesday's practice.

Analysis: Since being a healthy scratch in Week 10, Shaheen hasn't practiced and is trending toward a fourth straight absence. If he's unable to get onto the field Wednesday, the Bears will likely be led by J.P. Holtz, Jesper Horsted and Bradley Sowell at tight end with Ben Braunecker (concussion) not expected to play.

November 26, 2019 12:55 PM EST

Adam Shaheen: Still not practicing

Shaheen (foot) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report.

Analysis: Shaheen was a healthy scratch Week 10 and hasn't practiced in the meantime due to a foot injury. Elsewhere in the tight end room, Trey Burton (calf) is on injured reserve, and Ben Braunecker has been diagnosed with a concussion, leaving J.P. Holtz, Jesper Horsted and Bradley Sowell as the sole healthy bodies.

Adam Shaheen: Out Week 12

Shaheen (foot) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: Shaheen didn't practice again this week and will miss his third straight game due to the foot injury. Ben Braunecker is set to serve as the Bears' No. 1 tight end with Trey Burton (calf) on injured reserve.

November 22, 2019 11:31 AM EST

Adam Shaheen: No practice Wednesday

Shaheen (foot) did not practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Shaheen sat out Week 11's loss to the Rams due to a foot injury, and he has yet to make tangible progress in his recovery. With Trey Burton (calf) now on injured reserve, the Bears will be forced to rely on Ben Braunecker as the No. 1 option at tight end if Shaheen misses any more time.

November 20, 2019 2:20 PM EST

Adam Shaheen: Won't play Sunday

Shaheen (foot) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: Shaheen was added to the injury report Thursday as a non-participant and was unable to retake the practice field Friday. The 25-year-old was a healthy scratch for Week 10, so Ben Braunecker should again serve as the Bears' No. 2 tight end.

November 15, 2019 11:41 AM EST

Adam Shaheen: Dealing with foot injury

Shaheen missed Thursday's practice due to a foot injury.

Analysis: With Trey Burton tending to a calf injury, the Bears' tight end room is hurting at the moment. The remaining healthy options are Ben Braunecker, J.P. Holtz and Bradley Sowell.

November 14, 2019 2:25 PM EST

Adam Shaheen: Posts 13 yards

Shaheen caught two passes for 13 yards in Chicago's 16-6 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Analysis: Shaheen continues to see quite a bit of field time, but he's primarily a blocker who's been targeted seven times on the season, and he's currently not a player who can be counted on in fantasy lineups.

September 29, 2019 5:21 PM EST

Adam Shaheen: Targeted once

Shaheen caught one pass for seven yards in Chicago's 31-15 win over Washington on Monday.

Analysis: Shaheen is averaging two targets and 12 yards over three games, and as the second option for the Bears at tight end, he's not a recommended fantasy option.

September 24, 2019 4:00 AM EST

Adam Shaheen: Three receptions

Shaheen caught three passes for 24 yards in Chicago's 16-14 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

Analysis: With Trey Burton still working his way back from off-season green surgery, Shaheen saw multiple targets for the second week in a row, though he had minimal fantasy impact. As Burton continues to see more playing time, expect Shaheen to see more time as a blocker while only seeing occasional targets.

September 15, 2019 5:17 PM EST

Adam Shaheen: Quiet in starting role

Shaheen caught one pass for six yards in the Bears' 10-3 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: With Trey Burton (groin) inactive, Shaheen drew the start, but he was only targeted twice. Aside from his six-yard catch, he was thrown a pass in the red zone that the defensive back stripped loose for an incompletion. With Burton's injury unlikely to be a long-term issue, Shaheen won't carry much fantasy value until he becomes a bigger part of the offense.

Adam Shaheen: Inactive in preseason opener

Shaheen sat out Thursday's preseason contest against the Panthers.

Analysis: Although Shaheen missed time in July with a back injury, he's been back at practice since August 1, so his absence wasn't injury related. With most of the skill-position regulars sitting this game out, very little should be read into Shaheen being inactive. Going into the season, he's expected to be the No. 2 tight end, but he should see plenty of playing time because he'll be used to block often. Even though he's going undrafted in most fantasy leagues, should Trey Burton miss time, Shaheen has an athletic profile in which he could break out as a receiver as he enters his third NFL season.

August 9, 2019 7:24 AM EST

Adam Shaheen: Back in action

Shaheen returned to the practice field Thursday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Analysis: Shaheen missed several days of practice this week due to back soreness, but that no longer appears to be a concern for the third-year tight end. He'll return to camp, looking to secure a role as the backup to starter Trey Burton.

August 1, 2019 6:27 AM EST

Adam Shaheen: Remains sidelined Monday

Shaheen (lower back) is not participating at practice Monday, Jeff Dickerson of reports.

Analysis: Shaheen also missed Sunday's practice due to the issue, and it's not known if he's expected to face an extended absence. It's an ominous start to training camp as the 24-year-old attempts to put together a healthy season after missing 13 games across his first two years in the league.

July 29, 2019 2:52 PM EST

Adam Shaheen: Misses practice Sunday

Head coach Matt Nagy said Shaheen missed Sunday's practice with a sore lower back, Jeff Dickerson of reports.

Analysis: It's unclear how serious this back issue is for Shaheen. The 24-year-old wanted to focus on better maintaining his health this offseason after missing 10 games in 2018 with an ankle injury.
