Courtesy of the Chicago Bears' high-tech website, here's the injury report for Week 10.

Olin Kreutz C Hamstring Did not participate Did not participate Questionable (LP)
Zackary Bowman CB Foot Limited participation Limited participation Questionable (LP)
Tim Jennings CB Knee Limited participation Full participation
D.J. Moore CB Head Limited participation Full participation

Kreutz is likely to play and play heavily, but what happens if he goes out? Not necessarily looking good, true believers.  Bowman plans to play, but with Jennings' performance the last couple weeks, will he?

Minnesota Vikings Wednesday
(11/10/2010)
Thursday
(11/11/2010)
Friday
(11/12/2010)
Player Pos. Injury Status Status Status
Asher Allen CB Concussion Did not participate Did not participate Doubtful (DNP)

Jamarca Sanford S Hamstring Did not participate Did not participate Doubtful (DNP)
Brett Favre QB Ankle/Foot/Calf Did not participate Limited participation Probable (LP)
Phil Loadholt T Knee Limited participation Limited participation Probable (FP)

Everson Griffen DE Shoulder Full participation Full participation Probable (FP)
Lito Sheppard CB Hand Full participation Full participation Probable (FP)
Frank Walker CB Hamstring Full participation Full participation Probable (FP)
Bernard Berrian WR Groin Questionable (LP)

Well this is a hell of a list. This doesn't include the fact that Sidney Rice is definitely out, as he's still on the PUP list. Unless he has another migraine attack, expect to see Harvin. Favre ranks as a "DUH", and Berrian will likely play opposite Harvin. The Cornerbacks should be able to go, and Sanford is the only I'd say won't play.


And now on to your Sunday morning linkage (it helps keep you regular):

Sidney Rice not activated for Sunday's Vikings-Bears game - Phew.

Knox is excelling in big-city spotlight - To a degree, yes. Yes he is.

Sunday will set course for future of Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings - Today is the first day of the rest of your life, yada yada. No, seriously though, super important game.

Even if opponents punt away from Devin Hester, he provides hidden advantage to Chicago Bears - The haunting spectre of a Devin Hester TD return is enough to force teams to give up 10 yards of field position.

Chicago Bears need a good look with their nickel defense against Brett Favre - And their other defenses too.

Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier is biding his time waiting for head coaching chance - I won't be surprised if he gets his chance with the purple and yellow.

Bears' O-line has taken step back since late last season - Yeah. Which is sad, really, when you think about it. I mean, how bad do you have to be to be worse than you were last year?

Bears prepared if Vikings, Favre take fast-paced tack - Let's hope. 

Potash's breakdown: Bears vs. Vikings - What to do to win. Get to it, Bears.

Nuts & Bolts: Bears vs. Vikings - I like some of the numbers, like when the Bears are 17-0 when Cutler's over 100 Passer Rating. Or that the Vikings have won at Soldier Field once since 2003.

Minnesota Vikings' Sidney Rice remains inactive vs. Chicago Bears - The story so nice, I posted it twice.
