The winless Chicago Bears will not have disgruntled wide receiver Chase Claypool on the active roster for their Thursday Night Football game against the Washington Commanders in Week 5, coach Matt Eberflus said Monday.
"He is not going to be in the building this particular week on this short week," Eberflus said. "I can give you that."
Sunday's game marked the third time Claypool has been inactive for a game since the Bears acquired him in a trade with Pittsburgh last November, but the first time it wasn't because of an injury.
The fourth-year wide receiver was benched after he expressed frustration after Friday's practice with the way he was being used in the offense.
"Sometimes the things around you either elevate you or you have to adapt to allow you to elevate with them," Claypool said, according to ESPN. "So I've just been adapting to the new system and my new role in the system and trying to make the most out of it."
The Bears acquired Claypool in exchange for the No. 32 pick in this year's draft, but he's been a major disappointment so far. In 10 games with Chicago, he has 18 catches for 191 yards and one touchdown.
