The Chicago Bears will look to get back in the win column on Sunday, as they’ll take on the surprise NFC South division contender Atlanta Falcons.

Chicago knows what they’ll be running into, which is a run first offensive scheme that aims to protect the Falcons against their lack of skill position depth at receiver, and an offensive line that still has some problems.

For that, the Bears need to be healthy so they can take the brunt force of Atlanta’s physicality.

Unfortunately for the Bears though, it doesn’t look like they’re going to be the healthiest of teams on Sunday. Mostly due to the fact that some notable names are set to miss the game.

As you can see, N’Keal Harry is set to miss Sunday’s game with an illness, which in turn will make the Bears’ receiving group take a hit in terms of depth. Chicago has found ways to put up points without a reliance on the passing game in recent weeks though, so it isn’t all doom and gloom.

Dane Cruikshank is set to miss another game due to a hamstring injury. Injuries have been a common theme for Cruikshank throughout his career, so this development isn’t much of a surprise.

There is some positive news though.

Cole Kmet’s thigh injury won’t keep him out of Sunday’s game. Also, Teven Jenkins appears to have a chance at playing after practicing in full today. He didn’t practice the last two days before today, so him going from an DNP to a full participant is a good sign for the Bears.

Also, as expected from yesterday’s report, David Montgomery’s DNP on Wednesday yielded nothing concerning, as he practiced the last two days in full. He doesn’t have an injury designation, so all is good there regarding his playing status for Sunday.
