One thing to keep in mind, the NFL still only has three injury designations. They are,
- Out = Definitely will not play
- Doubtful = Unlikely to play
- Questionable = Uncertain if player will play
The probable designation was done away with a couple years ago because those guys almost always played.
Here’s who the Bears have on the first injury report of the 2017 season.
Cornerback Prince Amukamara (ankle) missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful. If he can’t go, look for Kyle Fuller to line up opposite Marcus Cooper.
There are three Bears listed as questionable and all three were limited at practice today. They were guard Kyle Long (ankle), wide out Markus Wheaton (finger), and outside linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee).
The other Bears that popped up on the injury report this week must all be 100% ready to go. Those players were defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard (glute), safety Eddie Jackson (groin), corner Sherrick McManis (hamstring), and outside linebacker Sam Acho (ankle).
The most amazing thing about the injury report is that inside linebacker Danny Trevathan is no where to be found. He appears to be fully healed after rupturing his patellar tendon back in November.
The Bears still have a walk through on Saturday, so if they change any of the designations, or add any, we’ll pass it along.
The Atlanta Falcons list the following players on their injury report.
Brian Hill, RB - Out
Terron Ward, RB - Questionable
Austin Pasztor, OL - Questionable
Ward and Pasztor both were limited at practice all week. All three players are listed as reserves on their depth chart.
