Earlier this week the Chicago Bears announced that quarterback Jimmy Clausen would miss the Minnesota Vikings game with a concussion. With Clausen out, Jay Cutler is reinserted into the starting lineup and rookie David Fales will serve as the back-up. Clausen was playing on a one year contract so he'll have to wait and see if he's still working in Chicago next season.
Other Bears ruled out for the season finale are safety Chris Conte (back) and kicker Robbie Gould (quad). Conte is in the last year of his contract and his return may be left to the new regime. Gould will most likely be back for 2015.
The Bears have three players listed as questionable (50% chance to play), DE Jared Allen (ribs), DT Jeremiah Ratliff (knee) and CB Al Louis-Jean (hamstring).
Here are the Bears that received the probable designation (75% chance to play). DE David Bass (knee), DT Ego Ferguson (ankle), WR Marquess Wilson (knee) and OG Kyle Long (hip).
The Minnesota Vikings have ruled linebackers Anthony Barr (knee) and Brandon Watts (hamstring) both out.
There are three Vikings ruled questionable, LB Chad Greenway (knee), TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and WR Jarius Wright (back).
The remaining Minnesota players on the injury report are all listed as probable. RB Matt Asiata (foot), S Robert Blanton (foot), S Antone Exum (knee), S Andrew Sandejo (thumb), DT Sharrif Floyd (knee), TE Chase Ford (foot), T Mike Harris (foot), WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) and G Charlie Johnson (ankle).
