The final injury reports for the Chicago Bears and Atlanta Falcons are out, but before I get into that, here’s a quick in-case-you-missed-it roster reset for the Bears because they made a few roster moves this week.
On Tuesday, they put running back Khalil Herbert on injured reserve, waived defensive end Kingsley Jonathan, and claimed cornerback Justin Layne off of waivers. On Wednesday, they activated linebacker Matt Adams off IR, waived linebacker A.J. Klein, and signed defensive end Taco Charlton off the Saints practice squad.
Here are the players the Bears list on the injury report for Sunday’s game.
- N’Keal Harry, WR (Illness) - Out
- Dane Cruikshank, S (Hamstring) - Out
- Teven Jenkins, G (Hip) - Questionable
- Al-Quadin Muhammad, DE (Knee) - Questionable
- Kindle Vildor, CB (Ankle) - Questionable
The good news is that all three questionable Bears practiced in full on Friday, so as long as there are no setbacks tomorrow, all three should be back in their starting positions in Atlanta.
Here are the injured Falcons for Sunday’s game.
- A.J. Terrell, CB (Hamstring) - Questionable
- Erik Harris, FS (Foot) - Questionable
- Feleipe Franks, TE (Calf) - Out
Terrell hasn’t played since week 7, but all indications are that he’s in line to be back starting for them at corner.
Neither Harris nor Franks starts for the Falcons.
