NFL Injury Report:
While the Chicago Bears have ruled linebacker Brian
Urlacher, cornerback Tim Jennings and wide receiver Earl Bennett out this
weekend against the Minnesota Vikings, they are expecting to have wide
receivers Devin Hester and Alshon Jeffery return to their lineup.
Devin Hester and Alshon Jeffery will both be available Sunday, per Lovie Smith.
— Jeff Dickerson (@ESPNChiBears) December 7, 2012
Bears coach Lovie Smith told reporters yesterday that
Chicago would have Hester and Jeffery back in their lineup against the Vikings.
Both missed last weekend’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks, as Jeffery was
recovering from a knee injury and Hester a concussion.
Jennings is hampered by a shoulder injury, while Bennett is
recovering from a concussion. Urlacher has a hamstring injury that could
sideline him for the remainder of the regular season.
The Bears have listed running back Michael Bush (ribs) and offensive
lineman Chris Spencer (knee) as questionable to suit up against Minnesota.
