The Chicago Bears will play SB Nation Detroit's own Detroit Lions this weekend as they look to be put in a tie for second place in the NFC North. The Lions will likely be without Jahvid Best, but according to Wednesday's injury report, the Bears have injury concerns of their own.
The Bears had four players that would have been unable to practice on Wednesday, including Devin Hester, Julius Peppers, Gabe Carimi and Kyle Adams. "Would have" is the phrase to pay attention to in that sentence as the team didn't actually practice on Wednesday due to playing on Monday Night Football.
Hester and Peppers are the two names that stand out, but the injury to Hester wasn't a concern for the Bears at Tuesday's press conference.
Hester left the game midway through the fourth quarter with a left ankle injury. He walked off the field gingerly but suggested afterward he would be fine.
"He came out of it in pretty good shape," Lovie Smith said of Hester.
Peppers should also be fine as he re-injured an MCL injury on Sunday but managed to stay in the game.
Tight end Kellen Davis, safety Major Wright and defensive tackle Matt Toeaina were also listed on Wednesday's injury report, though Davis and Wright were both partial participants while Toeaina practiced in full.
