EDIT: Kyle Long ruled out, story here.
The injury list for the Chicago Bears just keeps growing, and growing. After being fine earlier this week, outside linebacker Leonard Floyd popped up on the injury report today with a sore back.
Floyd is joined by seven other questionable Bears, and they are; running back Jordan Howard (shoulder), wide receivers Markus Wheaton (finger) and Josh Bellamy (ankle), guard Kyle Long (ankle), cornerback Prince Amukamara (ankle), linebacker Christian Jones (back), and safety Deon Bush (hamstring).
The only one of these players that didn’t practice on a limited basis today was Deon Bush. He received a DNP (Did Not Participate). Running back Benny Cunningham also was a DNP, in fact, he missed all week with a high ankle sprain and was listed as doubtful.
Howard tweaked his shoulder against the Falcons last Sunday, and head coach John Fox said it wasn’t that big a deal.
Wheaton has been nursing a broken pinky for a few weeks now, but if he’s able to go, it’ll be a big boost for the offense.
The Buccaneers have one player out, linebacker Devante Bond, and two listed as questionable, linebacker Kwon Alexander and center Evan Smith.
