  • Bears' Khari Blasingame: Handles eight carries in 2023

    Blasingame ended the 2023 season with eight rushes for 23 yards along with three receptions for two yards.

In Week 5, the Bears had injuries to each of their running backs, leading to the fullback rushing eight times for 23 yards. Otherwise, he was targeted once in three different games, which accounted for all of his season stats. In his five-year career, he has a total of 24 touches, as Blasingame's main role is to block. The veteran has one year remaining on his contract.

    Blasingame hauled in his lone target for minus-three yards while playing 14 of 71 snaps on offense in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Lions.

    Blasingame has suited up for each of the Bears' last three games after missing a Week 10 win over Carolina while recovering from a concussion. The reception the fullback recorded Sunday was just his third of the season, as he's been deployed primarily as a blocker whenever he's taken the field with the offense.

  • Bears' Khari Blasingame: Won't play in Week 10

    Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said Monday that Blasingame is in the concussion protocol and won't play Thursday versus Carolina, Courtney Cronin of reports.

    Blasingame sustained the concussion during Sunday's loss to New Orleans and won't be able to clear the five-step protocol on a short week. In Blasingame's absence, Chicago could opt to use their tight ends to fulfill any lead-blocking functions that the fullback might have handled Week 10.

  • Bears' Khari Blasingame: Extra work due to injuries Thursday

    Blasingame rushed eight times for 26 yards in the Bears' 40-20 win over the Commanders on Thursday night.

    With Khalil Herbert (ankle), Roschon Johnson (concussion) and Travis Homer (hamstring) all exiting Thursday's game early, Blasingame was called on to help ice away the contest with the Bears holding a big second-half lead. Blasingame's touches were his first from scrimmage since arriving in Chicago last season and the only others of his career besides three rush attempts with the Titans in 2021. The Vanderbilt product will very likely be relegated to his customary blocking fullback duties if at least two of his injured teammates are able to return for a Week 6 home matchup against the Vikings on Sunday, Oct. 15.

  • Bears' Khari Blasingame: Expected to make team

    Blasingame is expected to be an important part of the Chicago roster, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Blasingame has had three rushing attempts during his four years in the league, but his blocking as a fullback is a critical part of the Bears' blocking scheme in the running game. In addition, he plays on special teams. It seems as if Blasingame has an excellent chance of being on the regular-season roster, though don't look for him to get many rushing attempts.

  • Bears' Khari Blasingame: Won't play Sunday

    Blasingame is inactive Sunday against the Packers due to an illness, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Blasingame will sit for the first time this season, after he apparently came down with the illness in the hours leading up to kickoff since the Bears didn't include him on their injury report. Chicago will play the game without a true fullback and could turn to one of their tight ends to handle Blasingame's usual blocking functions.

  • Bears' Khari Blasingame: Secures roster spot

    Blasingame is one of two fullbacks to make the Bears' opening-day roster, according to the team's official site.

    Blasingame is atop the Bears' depth chart at fullback. He'll likely see time when the team uses heavy personnel packages, though it's unlikely he averages more than one touch per game on offense.

  • Bears' Khari Blasingame: One rushing attempt

    Blasingame had one carry for six yards in the Bears' 21-20 win against the Browns on Saturday.

    Blasingame played with the first-string offense when the Bears had a fullback on the field. With it looking like the Bears will roster a fullback, he seems likely to make the regular-season roster. However, he may not see more than a rushing attempt or two in any given week.
