The Bears have had better luck than usual this season in regards to injuries. After returning from their bye week they’re about to get a boost while fully rested.
On Thursday, rookie receiver Anthony Miller fully participated in Bears practice. That’s after dislocating his shoulder against the Cardinals a little over two weeks ago. It also means that barring an unforeseen setback in the next few days, Miller will play against the Dolphins on Sunday in Miami. Miller’s return bodes well for a Chicago attack coming off a 48-point outing against the Buccaneers without his services.
In other Thursday injury notes, Eric Kush was again on the limited list due to what head coach Matt Nagy called “stingers.” His status for Sunday may be muddled as the Bears figure what to do with James Daniels and the veteran at left guard.
Meanwhile, Prince Amukmara and Marcus Cooper continue to battle hamstring injuries that have ailed them for awhile now. Cooper was a non-participant, while Amukamara was limited. Whatever this duo’s status is for Sunday this late in the week, you can likely expect to see a healthy dose of Sherrick McManis in relief in the secondary again. At least it’s Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins, not the Patriots and Tom Brady, right?
