First things first, Here's wishing everybody a safe and merry Christmas!
The Chicago Bears held practice later than usual today to allow the coaches and players time at home with their families for Christmas morning. Also, it's a good thing head coach John Fox has a strict no bb gun policy, so there were no eyes shot out today.
Wide out Alshon Jeffery has been nursing a hamstring injury all week and he's listed as doubtful (25% chance he plays). Regardless if Jeffery plays or not, there has been some talk out of Halas Hall this week about getting speedy Deonte Thompson some more playing time at receiver.
The Bears also list Shea McClellin as doubtful with a concussion. If McClellin can't go, there's a chance the Bears start rookie undrafted free agents John Timu and Jonathan Anderson at inside linebacker.
The Bears list five players as questionable (50% chance they play), outside linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee), cornerback Tracy Porter (ankle), wide receiver Eddie Royal (knee), safety Adrian Amos (shoulder) and nickleback Bryce Callahan (quad).
For the Buccaneers, they have ruled out both receiver Vincent Jackson (knee) and defensive tackle Akeem Spence (ankle). Former Bear Chris Conte is doubtful with a knee injury.
Once the Bucs announce their full list we'll pass it along.
