The Chicago Bears have wrapped up their final full practice for Sunday’s season opener against the Houston Texans, and with that comes the first official injury report for 2016.

The Bears list nine players as questionable this week, and don’t forget that the NFL changed the way they have teams report injuries. The "probable" category that used to mean a player had a 75% chance to play is no longer used.

The new reporting system has been streamlined with only "out" (player will not play), "questionable" (player has a greater than 50% chance to play) and "doubtful" (player has a less than a 50% chance to play).

Here are the Bears players that made the questionable list.

OFFENSE
Kyle Long RG (shoulder)
Kevin White WR (hamstring)
Paul Lasike FB (wrist)
Deonte Thompson WR/KR (knee/ankle)
Josh Bellamy WR (shoulder)

DEFENSE
Bryce Callahan NB/CB (groin)
Kyle Fuller CB (knee)
Deon Bush S (hamstring)
Cornelius Washington DL (ankle/knee)

The good news on all of these questionable Bears, is they all practiced today, albeit in a limited capacity.

As for the Houston Texans, here’s their injury report.

Duane Brown LT (knee) OUT

That’s it.

No JJ Watt (DL), no Will Fuller (WR), no Derek Newton (RT) and no Akeem Dent (ILB), all of which spent some time this week only practicing on a limited basis.
