The Chicago Bears (3-6) will host the Detroit Lions (2-6) on Sunday, with the loser falling to last place in the NFC North. Both of these offenses have been much better than many had predicted; however, each defense has struggled most of the season. Each team is relatively healthy heading into their matchup, so this should be an exciting game.
Here’s how the Bears list their injury report for the game.
- Kindle Vildor, CB (Ankle) - Out
- Al-Quadin Muhammad, DE (Knee) - Doubtful
- Teven Jenkins, RG (Hip) - Questionable
- Jaylon Johnson, CB (Oblique) - Questionable
Muhammad hasn’t practiced this entire week, so if he can’t go in Saturday’s walkthrough he may be downgraded.
Jenkins and Johnson both practiced on Wednesday but were limited the last two practices.
With Vildor out and Johnson questionable, Jaylon Jones, Josh Blackwell, and/or Lamar Jackson may be pressed into action at cornerback.
We’ll talked about what a hip injury means to an offensive lineman and explored the effect an oblique injury has on a corner in tonight’s T Formation Conversation below
The Bears waived rookie UDFA Jake Tonges (FB/TE) yesterday, and they still have Byron Pringle (WR) and Matt Adams (LB) in their practice windows to be activated from injured reserve.
Here’s how the Lions list their injury report.
- Josh Reynolds, WR (Back) - Out
- Matt Nelson, OT (Calf) - Doubtful
- Kerby Joseph, S (Concussion Protocol) - Questionable
- Chase Lucas, CB (Ankle) - Questionable
- Ifeatu Melifonwu, S (Ankle) - Questionable
- Malcolm Rodriguez, OLB (Elbow) - Questionable
Reynolds has started 7 games for them this season, so his 26 receptions will be missed.
Joseph was a full participant today, so he’s likely playing, and the other 3 questionable Lions were all limited this week.
Please stop by our 2nd City Gridiron YouTube page tonight at 7:00 (CT) as Dr. Mason West and I dive a bit more into the injury report while previewing the game.
