McPhee began the season on the PUP list but returned to practice this week. McPhee was hindered by a knee injury in the summer and needed arthroscopic surgery, but he is finally healthy after months of hard work. After McPhee recorded six sacks, one interception, and 53 tackles last season, the Bears are certainly happy to get him back on the field.

McPhee came to Chicago on a five-year, $38.75MM deal last offseason and showed everyone that he was worthy of that money. Unfortunately, his troublesome knee slowed him down later in the season.

The linebacker will be on the field tonight as the Bears take on the Packers.
