Sherrick McManis and Craig Steltz Out For Game

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE

The Bears lose defensive backs Sherrick McManis and Craig Steltz for the remainder of the game.

And the hits roll on. Sherrick McManis suffered a knee injury, and Craig Steltz suffered a chest injury on Major Wright's interception at the end of the first half.

So the defensive backfield is running out of bodies, as Anthony Walters will see an uptick in snaps with Steltz out, and DJ Moore continues to remain out of Lovie Smith's doghouse out of necessity.

Something important to note, the Vikings drove 80 yards on their first drive of the game, and have only had 94 yards combined on the next five drives to end out the first half. Apparently the Bears caught on that stopping Adrian Peterson is a good thing, as he's come back to just 6.6 yards per carry. The Bears' defensive line has actually shown up on pass-rush duty, with Corey Wootton having himself a decent day so far. But down 14-7, the Bears still have a long way to go.
