With only one day before the Thursday Night Game against the New York Giants, the Chicago Bears have four players pop up on the injury report listed as questionable (50% chance of playing). Starters CB Charles Tillman (knee), DT Stephan Paea (toe), TE Martellus Bennett (knee), and OLB Lance Briggs (hip) are all questionable, and according to head coach Marc Trestman, all four will be game time decisions.
It's interesting to note that Bennett no longer is listed with his shoulder injury, and Tillman is no longer listed with his sore groin.
Other Bears showing up on the report are, WR Joe Anderson (knee), OL Eben Britton (foot), LT Jermon Bushrod (calf), and WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle). They are all probable, meaning there's a 75% chance the player will play.
Safety Anthony Walters is already listed as out, as is DT Nate Collins who was just placed on season ending injured reserve today.
For the New York Giants, they already have ruled six players as out. RB David Wilson, C David Baas, CB Jayron Hosley, TE Adrien Robinson, S Cooper Taylor, and CB Corey Webster.
Listed as doubtful (25% chance the player will play) is DE Damontre Moore.
The questionable Giants are, TE Brandon Myers, DT Linval Joseph, and WR Louis Murphy Jr.
And the probable Giants are, LS Zak DeOssie, LB Mark Herzlich, and CB Terrell Thomas.
That's a lot of injuries, I'm sure it has something to do with their 0-5 start.
What are your thoughts on the Bears chances if those four players miss tomorrow nights game?
