Bears Injury Report: Jordan Howard one of 11 that will not play against Arizona

Lester A. Wiltfong Jr. - VEI Photography

The Chicago Bears have already announced the players that will not play on Saturday night against the Arizona Cardinals.

They are as follows...

RB - Jordan Howard

RB - Jeremy Langford

WR - Josh Bellamy

WR - Markus Wheaton

G - Kyle Long

ILB - Danny Trevathan

ILB - Jonathan Anderson

ILB - Alex Scearce

CB - Bryce Callahan

DL - Mitch Unrein

DL - Kapron Lewis-Moore

The big surprise up there is the first guy I listed, Pro Bowl running back, Jordan Howard, suffered a corneal abrasion during Friday’s walk through. The injury is not expected to be serious. For those wondering what a corneal abrasion is, it’s a scratched cornea or a scratched eye, and according to, it is “one of the most common eye injuries.” Howard won’t even make the trip to Arizona, presumably so he can receive treatment on his eye, because “when treated right away, most corneal abrasions result in a full recovery with no permanent vision loss.”

The Josh Bellamy injury may provide more opportunities for popular UDFA Tanner Gentry. Last week, Gentry had 27 snaps on offense and 2 on special teams. Bellamy, who is known for his stellar play in the 3rd phase, appeared in 6 special team’s snaps, and 29 on offense.

The three injuries to inside linebackers may be a reason they signed Kelvin Sheppard earlier today.

UPDATE: Per WGN’s Adam Hoge, Prince Amukamara (CB), Nick Kwiatkoski (ILB) and Akiem Hicks (DL) also will not play tonight.
