The Chicago Bears have three starters listed as doubtful after not practicing all week, Defensive tackle Eddie Goldman (hip), outside linebacker Pernell McPhee (shoulder) and safety Adrian Amos (hamstring). Also on their injury report for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals is safety DeAndre Houston-Carson who is listed as questionable. Houston-Carson was able to practice today on a limited basis.
Also don’t forget the Bears will be without offensive guard Kyle Long and defensive tackle Mitch Unrein who were both placed on injured reserve earlier this week.
Safety Deon Bush is off the injury report, so the Bears could use him next to rookie Eddie Jackson instead of the recently signed Chris Prosinski. Getting Deiondre’ Hall some safety reps would be a wise move in a lost season as well.
Plus the Bears could make a roster move and activate Quintin Demps, who has been practicing in his 21-day window, from injured reserve.
What ever decisions they make for playing time, it should center around the 2018 season.
For the Bengals, they have already ruled six starters out for Sunday’s game. They’ll have to find a way to replace linebackers Vontaze Burfict and Nick Vigil, running back Joe Mixon, cornerbacks Dre Kirkpatrick and Adam Jones, and safety Shawn Williams.
The four questionable Bengals are as follows, linebacker Vincent Rey (hamstring), corner Darqueze Dennard (knee), defensive tackle Geno Atkins (toe), and safety Brandon Wilson (ankle).
