Cole Kmet (thigh) idle Wednesday for Bears
Chicago Bears tight end Cole Kmet (thigh) did not practice on Wednesday.
Kmet admitted to being "a little banged up" after last week's loss to the Detroit Lions and he remains sidelined for the first practice of Week 11. If he winds up not being able to play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, there will be more targets for Darnell Mooney and Chase Claypool. Trevon Wesco is next in line on the tight end depth chart, but he has only been targeted three times all season. Kmet scored twice last week and set season-highs with 74 yards on 7 targets.
Over the last three weeks, Kmet has 15 targets, 11 catches, 126 yards, and 5 touchdowns for 43.5 PPR points. The Falcons are 22nd in the league this season in FanDuel points allowed per game to the tight end position.
