Darnell Mooney, WR (CHI)

Still rehabbing ankle injury

Mooney (ankle) isn't participating in the Bears' OTAs this week, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Mooney suffered an injury to his left ankle in Week 12 of last season and needed season-ending surgery. Coach Matt Eberflus said Mooney is "progressing," but it sounds like the wideout isn't expected on the field before the start of training camp. With DJ Moore now in town and Chase Claypool getting ready for his first full season in a Chicago uniform, Mooney's targets are going to take a hit, but he should also see less attention from opposing defenses. Look for him to serve as Chicago's top downfield weapon with Moore, Claypool and Cole Kmet handling the intermediate looks.
