Injuries have been an issue for the 2016 Chicago Bears. It’s not the only reason the team is 1-4, but it’s not helping things either.
This week the Bears will again have some key players missing time, with cornerback Deiondre' Hall already ruled out. Listed as doubtful, but not expected to play are QB Jay Cutler, RB Jeremy Langford and NT Eddie Goldman.
The Bears have a lengthy list of questionables;
WR - Alshon Jeffery
WR - Eddie Royal
TE - Zach Miller
OLB - Leonard Floyd
LG - Josh Sitton
RT - Bobby Massie
OLB - Willie Young
CB - Tracy Porter
CB - Bryce Callahan
OLB - Sam Acho
RB - Ka’Deem Carey
Among the questionable Bears, only Royal and Floyd missed Friday’s practice. Royal also missed all of last week’s practice, but he did play against the Colts. Floyd, who was limited earlier this week with his calf injury, could be a game time decision.
The big news out of Halas Hall today was the return of outside linebacker Pernell McPhee to practice. He’s not eligible to play to Sunday, but the coaches were pleased to get him on the field.
The other PUP listed player, wide out Marquess Wilson, was not brought back today and he was spotted in a walking boot. Head coach John Fox said that there wasn’t a set back with Wilson’s injury.
For the Jacksonville Jaguars, they have three players listed as questionable.
RB - Corey Grant
WR - Rashad Greene
TE - Neal Sterling
Also the Jags will be without starting left guard Luke Joeckel who recently went on their injured list. In his place should be ex Bear Patrick Omameh.
