Today’s injury report from the Chicago Bears is quite lengthy with eight players listed as questionable, but a few of those are expected to play on Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

Here are all of today’s questionable Bears with their Friday practice status.

Defense

DT - Akiem Hicks (Hamstring) - Limited

OLB - Khalil Mack (Back) - Limited

ILB - Josh Woods (Foot) - Full

UPDATE: OLB - James Vaughters (Knee) has been ruled out for the game.

Offense

LT - Charles Leno Jr. (Toe) - Limited

OL - Germain Ifedi (Leg) - Limited

WR - Allen Robinson II (Knee) - Limited

WR - Darnell Mooney (Knee) - Did not practice

QB - Nick Foles (Hip) - Full

Head coach Matt Nagy said that Robinson being limited and Mooney sitting out were just precautionary and both are expected to play. He said the same thing about Mack missing practice earlier this week.

Hicks was limited the last couple of days, but considering the Bears had him meet the media today, I’d say that’s a good indication he’ll give it a go.

The pain in Foles’ hip has regressed to the point he practiced in full yesterday and today, and Nagy said he’ll be the back up to Mitchell Trubisky on Sunday.

In addition to those nine players, offensive lineman Alex Bars and inside linebacker Roquan Smith missed practice today, but neither has an injury designation. Nagy wouldn’t say if their absence had anything to do with COVID-19, so if they’re able to, both are expected to play on Sunday.

“It’s all, I guess, a little bit – I can’t get into all that,” Nagy said about Bars and Smith. “I apologize. This is, just so you understand, some of this stuff I don’t know what all I can and can’t say.”

The Lions will be missing a few players on Sunday as they have already ruled out wide receiver Kenny Golladay, defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand, and cornerback Jeff Okudah

They have four players listed as questionable in defensive end Austin Bryant (Thigh), quarterback Matthew Stafford (Right Thumb), running back D’Andre Swift (Illness), and defensive back Tracy Walker (Not injury related).

Stafford and Bryant were limited at today’s practice while Walker and Swift both missed it.

Swift just recently cleared concussion protocol, and if he’s able to play head coach Darrell Bevel said he’d only play a limited number of snaps. Stafford has been dealing with his thumb injury for a few weeks now and it hasn’t prevented him from playing.
