Anthony Miller, Prince Amukamara Ruled Out for Bears vs. Buccaneers

Both players suffered injuries in last week's game against the Cardinals

The Chicago Bears will be without a couple of key players on Sunday, as wide receiver Anthony Miller and cornerback Prince Amukamara will both be out for the team’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Miller, who is dealing with a dislocated shoulder, has been termed “week-to-week” by the Bears, and with a bye week coming up, they’ll hope that they can get him back for Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.

Amukamara has been dealing with a hamstring injury that he suffered in Sunday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals, and his absence is a big blow to a secondary that is in for a tough challenge against a potent Buccaneers offense.

Sherrick McManis will likely see snaps at the outside corner position opposite of Kyle Fuller, but the secondary will also be dealing with the absence of Marcus Cooper, who is dealing with a hamstring injury of his own.

The Bears and Buccaneers will kick off at Soldier Field at noon on Sunday, with the game airing on Fox.
