The Chicago Bears are likely going to have their starting quarterback under center on Sunday, and it looks like he will be joined on the field by two other key contributors.
Mitchell Trubisky, who has missed the Bears' last two games because of a shoulder issue, was a full participant in practice for the third straight day at Halas Hall, and he was not listed on the game status report, meaning he is expected to play barring a sudden setback.
Defensive back Sherrick McManis and running back Benny Cunningham, who were also out of last week's loss to the New York Giants, were both full participants Friday, and are expected to play Sunday, giving a big boost to the team's special teams unit.
Defensive tackle Bilal Nichols was limited on Friday with a knee issue, and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game. Safety Eddie Jackson is also questionable with a shin issue that kept him out of Friday's practice, and cornerback Deon Bush, who missed the workout with a hamstring injury, has been listed as doubtful by the Bears.
