The Chicago Bears did not escape their loss to the Philadelphia Eagles without a plethora of injuries. Beyond that, they entered the week with a few questions, so the team has plenty of updates to make in this area. Matt Eberflus addressed the media on Monday, what news did he have to offer.

6. Teven Jenkins had a neck injury on Sunday

The Chicago Bears saw their starting right guard Teven Jenkins carted off of the field with a neck injury on Sunday. That news sounds very scary on the surface, but the team is fortunate to hear good news from Matt Eberflus.

While Eberflus said that the team received good news, and that things were in ecouraging, it sounded as though that was the real world diagnoses more than the football diagnoses. From the football side, Eberflus said that they were still working things out. It did not sound like he would practice on Wednesday and that they may take things from there.

This is notable because the team has been adamant about players practicing the week before playing. Perhaps Jenkins could be back and ready to roll by Thursday. If he practices a few days in a row, he could still play Sunday.

Sitll, the most likely outcome is that he is back for the final two games, or even misses those games. The team is in no rush to bring him back, and if any offensive line spot is locked in for next season, it is Jenkins. If Jenkins does remain out, the team will likely continue to go with Michael Schofield.
