Sunday Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears Vikings WR Percy Harvin (ankle)
Jock to Doc take: Harvin took a step back when he left Friday's practice early. He is officially listed as doubtful to play on Sunday.
Bears QB Jay Cutler (concussion)
Jock to Doc take: Head Coach Lovie Smith noted that Cutler, who is recovering from a concussion he sustained against the Texans, is "looking better" with regards to playing Sunday against Minnesota, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. While this statement is not definitive, it is certainly optimistic. Assuming Cutler has a good practice Friday with no setbacks, he should be back as the starter for Sunday's game.
Brandon Marshall (shoulder)
Jock to Dock take: Although Chicago's No. 1 wideout sat out of Wednesday's practice, he returned in a limited basis during Thursday's session, the Chicago Tribune reports. There has been nothing to suggest Marshall is anything but a go this week, but owners should make sure during Chicago's Friday practice.
