The good news is the Chicago Bears will get inside linebacker Danny Trevathan back from his one game suspension. The bad news is that inside linebacker John Timu is already ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. It was reported that Timu had a high ankle sprain after Monday’s game, but he also has a knee injury listed on the official report.
Also ruled out for the Bears is wide out Markus Wheaton with a groin injury. The recently promoted Tanner Gentry could benefit from Wheaton’s absence.
Some potential good news is that inside linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski is listed questionable this week. Kwiatkowski is still trying to come back from his injured pec. He was a limited participant at practice this week, so maybe he can play.
The other questionable Bear is center Hroniss Grasu, who is still trying to come back from his hand injury. Graus was also limited this week, but if he still can’t snap, I doubt he’ll be active on Sunday.
The Ravens also have two players already ruled out. Running back Terrance West and guard Matt Skura will both miss the game. Skura is the teams starting right guard, and West has started four of their five games this year.
Defensive tackle Brandon Williams and outside linebacker Tim Williams are both listed as doubtful. The 340 pound Williams hasn’t played since week two with a foot injury, and he was barely on the practice field this week.
Here are the seven players listed as questionable for Baltimore.
Starting defensive lineman Carl Davis will be a game time decision per head coach John Harbaugh. Cornerbacks Jimmy Smith and Jaylen Hill were both limited at practice today. Anthony Levine Sr., a DB/LB, was also limited today.
Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was limited all week, but fellow wide out Breshad Perriman was a full participant the last two days. Tight end Maxx Williams was full go at Ravens’ practice all week.
