The Chicago Bears got some good news, and some bad news, on the injury front as they took the practice field at Halas Hall on Wednesday.
On the good side of things, the Bears did get three wide receivers on the field as full participants for the workout. Both Taylor Gabriel, who left Sunday’s win over the Minnesota Vikings with a rib injury, and Anthony Miller, who left the game with a separated shoulder, both worked out on Wednesday, as did Allen Robinson, who missed the team’s last two games because of a rib injury.
Offensive lineman Kyle Long, who returned from injured reserve on Sunday, was also a full participant as he works his way back from an ankle issue.
Unfortunately for the Bears, two of their most important defensive players were not on the field Sunday, as safety Eddie Jackson, who has missed the last two games with an ankle issue, and linebacker Aaron Lynch, who has also been out with an elbow injury, were both out of the mix.

There is still a chance that both players could play on Sunday, but the team won’t reveal more information until later in the week.
On the Eagles’ side of the equation, cornerback Sidney Jones and defensive end Michael Bennett would both have missed Wednesday’s practice if the Eagles had opted to hold one.
Quarterback Nick Foles, who is slated to start Sunday, was limited with a rib injury, as was defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and tackle Jason Peters.
