It's not an NFL season without injuries, and there are some notable injuries for both the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints as they gear up for their matchup tomorrow.
There are some interesting things for both teams to try to take advantage of. Hit the jump to see the injury status report, and where some of those advantages might be.
New Orleans Saints - Status Report
OUT - WR Marques Colston (broken collarbone), K Garrett Hartley
QUESTIONABLE - S Roman Harper (ankle), DT Tom Johnson (calf), WR Lance Moore (groin), CB Tracy Porter (calf)
PROBABLE - G Carl Nicks (illness)
Things of Note: Porter did not practice Thursday or Friday, and Harper was limited. If they are both out, that means there are some backups playing in a defense that was already coming off a pretty abusmal performance there could be something to exploit there.
Additionally, Moore was limited in practice. If he's not 100%, or is unable to go, then you're looking at Devery Henderson and Robert Meachem, and likely a lot of work to TE Jimmy Graham and RB Darren Sproles.
Chicago Bears - Status Report
DOUBTFUL - RB Marion Barber (calf), S Chris Harris (hamstring), G lance Louis (ankle)
QUESTIONABLE - WR Roy Williams (groin)
PROBABLE - CB Zackary Bowman (hamstring), WR Sam Hurd (ankle), DE Corey Wootton (knee)
Things of Note: Bowman, Hurd, and Wootton all participated in full on Friday. Williams was limited. Harris didn't practice all week, so look to see Major Wright and Brandon Merriweather in the backfield Sunday. If Williams can't go, expect an increased presence of Johnny Knox, and more Earl Bennett as well.
