Chicago Bears Injury Report: Martellus Bennett and Charles Tillman both questionable, Jerry Franklin promoted from practice squad

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears haven't played since October 10th, so their injured players have had a few extra days of rest to prepare for the Washington Redskins this Sunday. We'll give you the complete injury report for both the Bears and the Redskins.

The Chicago Bears only have two players listed as questionable (50/50 to play) on today's injury report. Cornerback Charles Tillman (knee), and tight end Martellus Bennett (knee), but both are expected to play on Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

Chicago has four players listed as probable (75% chance a player will play), LB James Anderson (back), DT Stephen Paea (toe), S Anthony Walters (hamstring), and S Major Wright (knee). Paea who missed the last couple games, will provide a boost to a position that has been lacking.

Julius Peppers, who was held out of practice on Wednesday, actually practiced yesterday and today, even though his designation is unlisted on the injury report.

With linebacker D.J. Williams going on injured reserve, the Bears promoted Jerry Franklin from the practice squad. Franklin is expected to fill a special teams role in place of rookie Jon Bostic, who will be the new starter at middle linebacker.

For the Redskins, they have seven players on their injury report, but all seven had full participation at practice today.

Corner David Amerson is questionable, and the following six are all probable. Tight ends Logan Paulsen and Fred Davis, LB Brandon Jenkins, C Will Montgomery, CB Jerome Murphy, and NT Chris Neild.
