The Chicago Bears are riding a bit of a low wave after their Week Two loss to the Green Bay Packers.

But all of their misery could be washed away with a win against the Houston Texans on Sunday. The Texans are a scrappy team being led by Lovie Smith and a nice combination of youth and experience.

But they still lack the necessary amount of quality to pose a threat to contenders, although they’re on the right trajectory with their rebuild. The Bears could use this game as an opportunity to learn more and build upon their experience, since their team is relatively young anyways.

However, that won’t be the case if their injury report possesses a lot of difference makes, just like the final one released today.

Roquan Smith and Jaylon Johnson being out would be pretty big losses for the Bears. Smith hasn’t played well the first the two weeks, but he’s still one of the most important players defensively and would give the Texans some problems on Sunday.

It sounds like Smith will be a game-time decision on Sunday. Matt Eberflus said Friday his questionable status lists him at “51%” in terms of his health. Smith is listed as questionable, but didn’t practice all week long, which is notable.

Jaylen Johnson being out gives the Texans more reason to attack through the air, which hasn’t been a poor way to find offensive success for them this season. He was injured during practice, according to Eberflus.

Velus Jones Jr. being out is disappointing for him, since his speed and versatility could give the Bears’ receiving group some much needed unpredictability.

All in all, this is a pretty worrisome injury report for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Here’s to Eberflus and his staff somehow finding a way to recoup the value lost due to injuries.
