Chicago Bears week 3 injury report vs Pittsburgh Steelers

CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 10: Josh Sitton /

Week 3 will feature the return of some key pieces for the Chicago Bears, but they will also be down a key man in the trenches.

The Chicago Bears will see two players make their Bears debut on Sunday against the Steelers. However, the offensive line will be out a key piece against Pittsburgh’s fierce pass rush.

Kyle Long G: In (ankle)

After two weeks and a tumultuous offseason, Long will finally make his return to the field. However, his position is up in the air. Many speculate Long will shift to left guard with Grasu going to center and Whitehair moving to right guard. However, it may be best to keep long at right guard until he knocks the rust off.

Prince Amukamara CB: In (ankle)

The big free agent singing on defense will finally make his debut in Chicago. Vic Fangio generally keep his corners to one side of the field, so Amukamara will likely draw match-ups with both Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. Amukamara excels in man coverage, but this is an unfavorable matchup the Bears considering their best cover corner will be knocking off some rust.

Markus Wheaton: In (finger)

Another free agent signing who will make his debut in a Bears uniform. Wheaton gives the Bears a true deep threat. Whether or not the Bears utilize Wheaton’s deep threat ability remains to be seen.

Josh Sitton G: Doubtful (Ribs)

As is custom with the Bears, as Long returns, Sitton will go to the bench. He

suffered a rib injury against Tampa Bay and didn’t practice all week.

Tom Compton T: Questionable (Hip)

Compton is likely to go with a hip injury after putting in two limited practices this week. There’s a reasonable chance that Compton could also factor into the starting lineup with Sitton being a scratch.

*Jordan Howard (RB) and Akiem Hicks (DE) both had minor injuries during the week, but practiced in full and were taken off the injury report on Friday.
