    The Chicago Bears are hoping to beat the Houston Texans for the first time in franchise history on Sunday, but injury concerns for several key players could put a damper on their chances.

    On Friday’s injury report, nine different players were listed as questionable for the Bears, as the NFL got rid of the “probable” designation for the 2016 season. The biggest names on the list are offensive lineman Kyle Long, who has been limited in practice all week with a shoulder injury, and wide receiver Kevin White, who picked up a hamstring injury during Thursday’s workout.

    Cornerback Kyle Fuller has also been a limited participant all week in practice, and his knee injury has left him listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game in Houston.

    Six other Bears players also were tagged with that designation. Wide receiver Josh Bellamy (shoulder), defensive back Deon Bush (hamstring), cornerback Bryce Callahan (groin), fullback Paul Lasike (wrist), wide receiver Deonte Thompson (knee/ankle), and defensive lineman Cornelius Washington (ankle/knee) are all questionable for Sunday’s game.

    As for the Texans, only one player appeared on their injury report, as offensive tackle Duane Brown, who hasn’t practiced all week with a knee injury, has been ruled out for Sunday’s game. Players like J.J. Watt and Will Fuller, who appeared on the injury report Wednesday and Thursday weren’t listed at all, meaning that they are expected to suit up when the teams open up their regular season.
