    The Chicago Bears didn't have any players on their injury report in Week 1, but that run of health has not continued into the regular season, as the team is plagued by bumps and bruises heading into their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night.

    Most notable among the walking wounded is WR Brandon Marshall, who felt
    back pain during the team's practice on Thurday and left the field: 

    Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago also had some news on that front, reporting that CB Charles Tillman was limited at practice today:

    Kyle Long has also been banged up, dealing with a sore back during practice yesterday, but he reportedly felt better today. Martellus Bennett was also a full participant in practice for the Bears on Thursday, with a shoulder ailment seemingly not limiting him in advance of the game with the Steelers.

    The only issue that could impact the Bears on Sunday is Tillman's knee problems.He was limited during practice in Week 2 prior to the Vikings game with the ailment, and CB Zack Bowman has been taking most of the first team repetitions during this week's sessions. Even still, Dickerson did say that Tillman is "expected to play" in Week 3. 

    Injuries are obviously a fact of life in the NFL, and the Bears don't have anyone that is definitively out of Sunday's contest as of yet, but it's still concerning that so many key players are already banged up just two weeks into the season.
