It looks like the Chicago Bears will be without quarterback Jay Cutler for a third consecutive week, as he was listed as doubtful on the team’s final injury report on Friday.
Cutler, who suffered a thumb injury in a Week 2 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, did not practice all week as he continues to deal with the injury, and it would appear that Brian Hoyer will once again get the start when the Bears take on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon.
Running back Jeremy Langford and defensive tackle Eddie Goldman were also listed as doubtful with ankle injuries. Goldman hasn’t played since Week 2 of the season, and Langford missed last week’s game against the Detroit Lions. Will Sutton will likely play in place of Goldman in the middle of the Bears’ defensive line, and Jordan Howard should get another start out of the backfield.
Cornerback Deiondre’ Hall suffered an ankle injury during Thursday’s practice for the Bears, and the injury got worse on Friday, landing him among those players listed as “doubtful” for Sunday’s contest.
The Bears also had a slew of players listed as questionable for the game, including linebacker Danny Trevathan, who returned to the practice field this week after undergoing thumb surgery a few weeks ago. There is a possibility that he could play with the injury, but Bears fans will have to wait until game time to find out whether he’ll be suited up.
Wide receivers Eddie Royal (calf) and Alshon Jeffery (knee) were also listed as questionable, as were cornerbacks Sherrick McManis (hamstring) and Tracy Porter (knee).
Linebackers Leonard Floyd (calf) and Willie Young (knee/ankle) are also questionable. Charles Leno (illness), Ka’Deem Carey (hamstring), Zach Miller (ribs), Jonathan Bullard (shoulder), and Nick Kwiatkoski round out the long list of players who are question marks heading into Sunday’s contest.
