There are three potential players that could start at strong safety for the Chicago Bears in Week 13
The Bears have done a lot more roster shuffling this week than they have in past weeks. That is because as the season wears on, and the game becomes less meaningful, the injury report begins to pile up.
The Bears have had to shuffle at wide receiver, guard, linebacker, and outside linebacker this season. Now, safety can be added to the list, as the Bears enter the weekend with multiple options to start at strong safety on Sunday.
If Adrian Amos is healthy, he is starting. However, it is a hamstring injury that has held him out of practice this week and has him doubtful. With the Bears lack of interest in the 2017 season, it would be wise to give him as much time as needed to get back to full strength. The last thing they need is to force Amos to have season-ending surgery.
Quintin Demps, who started the season ahead of Adrian Amos practiced on Wednesday for the first time all season. While that is encouraging, he is not ready to start on Sunday. Deon Bush and Deandre Houston-Carson are both lower end depth players, and both are questionable while hardly practicing this week. Neither of them is starting on Sunday.
This leaves Deiondre Hall and Chris Prosinski. How about that. The Bears are either going to start the safety that they cut, and was never re-signed for three months until the team needed him. Or, they are going to start Hall, who has been practicing for just ten days ago and has played in eight career games without a single start in his career. The Bears would also have to make a corresponding move to make Hall active by Sunday.
