The Chicago Bears haven’t been bit by the injury bug nearly as badly as the San Francisco 49ers this season, but they have had their fair share of misery. Going into their Sunday matchup, the Bears are facing the potential of multiple defensive starters missing the game.
Most importantly, safety Adrian Amos is dealing with a hamstring injury and was listed on the official injury report as doubtful. Both Deon Bush and DeAndre Houston-Carson, backup safeties, are listed as questionable with ankle injuries, so the position is pretty thin, which feels a bit familiar as a 49ers fan this season.
In addition to the issues at safety, the Bears’ top two nickle cornerbacks are questionable in Bryce Callahan and Cre’Von LeBlanc. The recently-signed Lamarr Houston should also see some playing time with outside linebacker Isaiah Irving out with a knee injury.
Chicago did have a slew of players who came off the injury report, including linebackers Danny Trevathan and Pernell McPhee, defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris, offensive lineman Tom Compton and wide receiver Josh Bellamy, as pointed out by our friends at Windy City Gridiron.
The 49ers’ injury report isn’t looking great, with all of Adrian Colbert, Ahkello Witherspoon and Trent Brown listed as game-time decisions on the final report of the week.
