The big Chicago Bears injury report came out yesterday, when head coach Marc Trestman named Jay Cutler the starting quarterback for this Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. Technically he's receiving the probable designation, but all indications are that he's 100% and ready to go.
As for the full Bears injury report, that's it. Two players. Not another strain, bruise, or sprain to be found. This is the healthiest they've been in a long time.
The other 13 players on their injury report are listed as probable (75% chance the player will play). Most notable among them are offensive starters TE Jordan Cameron (ribs), LT Joe Thomas (back), RT Mitchell Schwartz (toe, knee), punter Spencer Lanning (left knee), and defensive starters LB D'Qwell Jackson (ankle), LB Paul Kruger (elbow), LB Craig Robertson (knee), DE Ahtyba Rubin (calf), and SS T.J. Ward (shoulder).
Everyone but the three players that Cleveland has already ruled out is expected to play.
