Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Chicago Bears wide receivers Devin Hester and
Alshon Jeffery are expected to play on Sunday in an NFC North clash against
the Minnesota Vikings, while cornerback Tim Jennings has been ruled out.
Hester (concussion) and Jeffery (knee) both participated fully in Friday's
practice after being limited in the previous two sessions.
Hester sat out Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to Seattle after sustaining a
concussion against Minnesota in Week 12, while Jeffery has missed six of the
last seven games with a broken hand and an injured knee.
Jennings was unable to practice all week after injuring his shoulder against
Seattle and has been ruled out, joining wide receiver Earl Bennett
(concussion) and linebacker Brian Urlacher (hamstring).
Earlier reports suggested Urlacher could miss three games or more with his
injury, which also occurred during last week's loss.
Running back Michael Bush (ribs) missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday,
but returned on a limited basis on Friday and is listed as questionable.
Defensive tackle Stephen Paea (foot) and guard Chris Spencer (knee) are also
listed as questionable, while offensive lineman Gabe Carimi (hamstring) is
probable for Sunday.
