The Chicago Bears have a small injury report again this week, but this time everyone could be dressed and ready to play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night. Here's the full injury report for both teams.

Chicago Bears Pro Bowl outside linebacker Lance Brigsg has been practicing all week with the 1st team defense, and just today he was medically cleared to play.

Even though Briggs was a full participant at practice, he's listed officially as questionable, meaning it's 50/50 that he'll play.

"We'll see where he is Sunday morning," Trestman said. "We'll see how he feels and where he's at, but he's been cleared. We'll list him as questionable up until game time. He'll work out before the game and we'll see where he's at.

"I wouldn't want to say that he's going to play, he's going to start. I think that's still 48 hours away. But certainly at the beginning of the week [I was] fully optimistic, [and I'm] even more now since he's been cleared by the doctors. But we'll see where that goes on Sunday night."

The other player on the report is wide receiver Brandon Marshall who has had a hamstring issue flare up on him this week. Marshall is listed as probable, and he is expected to play.

Earl Bennett was excused from practice today for a personal matter, but he is expected to play on Sunday.

The Philadelphia Eagles have already ruled out two players. Back up safeties Colt Anderson and Kurt Coleman will not play on Sunday night.

The other five players on their injury report are all listed as probable, meaning they have a 75% chance to play. Their only probable starter is inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee). The other four probables are all backups, Earl Wolff (knee), corner Brandon Boykin (concussion), linebacker Najee Goode (hamstring), and wide out Brad Smith (hamstring).

What are your thoughts on the injury report this week?
