The Chicago Bears are going up against one of the NFL’s best teams this weekend, and it appears they’ll be doing so without at least one key player.
That key player is linebacker Danny Trevathan, who has been listed as doubtful for the Bears’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Trevathan, who has missed the team’s last two games with an injury, is still dealing with a calf issue, and once again didn’t participate in their final practice on Friday.
Josh Bellamy (concussion), Roy Robertson-Harris (hamstring) and DeAndre Houston-Carson (ankle) were also listed as doubtful for the Bears.
The Bears also listed a staggering nine players as questionable against the Eagles, who at 9-1 have the NFL’s best record and are considered to be one of the favorites to take home a Super Bowl title this winter.
Four different players are dealing with knee ailments, including Pernell McPhee, Bryce Callahan, Akiem Hicks, and Mitch Unrein, all of whom were among those listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.
Offensive linemen Tom Compton and Kyle Long are both listed as questionable with ankle issues. Dion Sims is once again questionable as he continues to deal with an illness that has kept him off the field for nearly a month, and quarterback Mark Sanchez is also questionable with an illness of his own. The quarterback did not practice on Friday.
Wide receiver Dontrelle Inman, who has quickly become one of Mitchell Trubisky’s favorite targets on offense, is also questionable with a groin injury.
