The Chicago Bears are getting starting cornerback Prince Amukamara back for this Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers after he missed last week with a hamstring injury. He was able to practice in full all week and has no injury designation.
The other players that missed last week’s game weren’t as fortunate, as wide out Taylor Gabriel and tight end Ben Braunecker are still in the concussion protocol and are ruled out, right tackle Bobby Massie is still nursing his ankle and is also out, and inside linebacker Danny Trevathan’s elbow isn’t ready making him out as well.
The Bears list wide receiver Javon Wims who hurt his knee against the Cowboys, and defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris who hurt his foot in that game, both as questionable after each practiced in a limited capacity today.
Kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson popped up on the injury report with a head injury on Thursday, but he practiced in full today and does not carry an injury designation for the game.
Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks is technically still on injured reserve, but he has been practicing this week and the Bears have until 3:00 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday) to activate him. When asked for an update about Hicks’ status, head coach Matt Nagy said, “I like what I’ve seen all week long from him.”
The Packers only have two players on their injury list for Sunday’s game, tight end Jimmy Graham (wrist/groin) and corner Kevin King (shoulder) are questionable.
