It’s another small injury list for the Chicago Bears as only Eddie Goldman and Isaiah Irving appear on it this week. Head coach Matt Nagy sounded like he expects Goldman to play, “We feel good about where he’s at,” after he practiced in full today, but the big nose tackle was listed as questionable.
Irving has been ruled out for Sunday’s game, so it’s likely we see another roster move to get practice squad outside linebacker James Vaughters on the 53-man roster. Anyone care to guess which Bear would be released to make room for Vaughters?
Speaking of possible roster moves, the Bears have until tomorrow to release running back Mike Davis to heighten their chances of getting a 4th-round comp pick awarded to them this offseason. Even though the formula to determine comp picks is a secret, there are several capologists that have broke the code and are reporting the draft pick to be a certainty.
But back to the injuries...
In what has been a trend of late, the Bears face a team with a lengthy list of injured players, but for the last four weeks they haven’t been able to take advantage. Could that change this week?
This week the Detroit Lions list the following on their report.
Da’Shawn Hand (DL) ankle
Tracy Walker (DB) knee
Miles Killebrew (S) head
Damon Harrison Sr. (DT) groin
Romeo Okwara (DE) groin
Mike Daniels (DT) foot
A’Shawn Robinson (DT) ankle
Sam Martin (P) abdomen
Joe Dahl (G) ankle
Graham Glasgow (C/G) back
Matthew Stafford (QB) hip/back
Stafford was limited all week, but the latest news has him a true game time decision.
