This injury news came out of nowhere...
The Chicago Bears are listing starting free safety Eddie Jackson as questionable with a shin injury. He practiced in full on Wednesday and Thursday, but he was held out today as they practiced inside on artificial turf. When asked about Jackson missing practice, head coach Matt Nagy said that he was “just giving him a little bit of a rest day, nothing major at all.”
The Bears also list defensive tackle Bilal Nichols as questionable after being limited in practice today with his knee issue. Nichols being limited on Friday’s has become the norm these last few weeks, as well as being limited when the Bears practice indoors, so I’m not concerned with him, or Jackson for that matter, missing Sunday’s game.
The only other player on the Bears’ injury report is safety Deon Bush who is doubtful with a hamstring injury.
Sherrick McManis, Benny Cunningham, and Mitchell Trubisky, who all missed last weeks game, practiced in full today and will play.
As soon as the Los Angeles Rams reveal their injury report we’ll pass it along.
