The Bad News

Brian Urlacher-Officially ruled out for Sunday with a hamstring injury.

Tim Jennings -Officially ruled out with a shoulder injury.

Earl Bennett- Officially ruled out with a concussion.

The Good News

Devin Hester and Alshon Jeffery will be available for the game Sunday against the Vikings. This is very good news after Earl Bennett was ruled out on Thursday for this weeks contest. Lovie Smith stated that ALL Bears with the exception of Urlacher, Jennings, and Bennett will be available to participate in Sunday’s big clash in Minnesota.

The Vikings placed Percy Harvin on season ending IR so it will be a battle of the Bears Defense against Adrian Peterson.  The injuries are starting to pile up so the Bears really need to things to happen in the Twin Cities on Sunday.  1. Win the game. 2. Leave Minnesota without any injuries.

What do you think will getting Hester and Jeffery back in the lineup be enough to get a win in Minnesota, or will the loss of Urlacher and Jennings be too much for the defense to overcome?
