On Thursday, we saw Darqueze Dennard, Adam Jones, Shawn Williams, Dre Kirkpatrick, Nick Vigil and Vontaze Burfict all miss their second-straight session. it’s possible that all of them miss Sunday, which would be devastating to the secondary and linebackers.
Also missing Thursday was Geno Atkins with a toe injury. Losing him in addition to the above-mentioned players would make this one of the worst defenses in football, even if it were just for a game or two.
That’s just too much star power to overcome the loss of, though the Bears’ offense isn’t exactly well-equipped to score on any defense.
On offense, running back Joe Mixon missed a second-straight day due to a concussion. Don’t expect him to play Sunday, which means Giovani Bernard would be in line for a major workload. We may even see Brian Hill play since he is the backup if Mixon is out.
