Fantasy Impact:

Newsome suffered a clean break on his collarbone, which means he will undergo surgery and be available to return in eight weeks. This timeline will allow the sixth-round rookie wideout to return by the time Bears' training camp starts. Newsome recorded 188 receptions for 2,435 yards and 20 total touchdowns across the four seasons he played at the University of North Carolina. Newsome will have the chance to compete for a role as Chicago's second or third slot receiver behind Damiere Byrd and Anthony Miller.
