|Dec 31 2018 - Kyle Long|
G Kyle Long (foot) made it through half of Sunday's win and then came out. "He did a good job of every play staying consistent," Nagy said. "I thought he looked healthy, he held the line of scrimmage really well, he was great in the run game. When we did throw the ball, he was solid there. So the biggest thing for him was gonna be just conditioning and getting in and out of the game, just the normal stuff, and I liked where he was at." Long played 27 snaps before leaving. "We'd love to be able to put him out there, start and play a whole game, we just have to see how he holds up," Nagy said.
|Dec 31 2018 - Eddie Jackson|
S Eddie Jackson (ankle) missed his second straight game Sunday against Minnesota but Nagy continues to believe he might have his starting safety back by game time.
|Dec 31 2018 - Allen Robinson|
WR Allen Robinson II (ribs) missed the win over the Vikings but is expected to return for the Eagles game.

|Dec 29 2018 - Kyle Long|
RG Kyle Long was activated from injured reserve, the team announced Saturday. Sidelined for two months due to a right foot injury, Long has practiced fully throughout the week and will be available for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Minnesota Vikings. Long was hurt in a 24-10 win over the New York Jets in Week 8. He was carted off the field and initial estimates had him set to miss six to eight weeks. Nagy does not expect Long to be limited against the Vikings.
|Dec 26 2018 - Kyle Long|
G Kyle Long (foot) is practicing with the team and the intent is to activate him for Sunday's game, barring any setbacks. Long padded up and practiced Wednesday and is in the middle of a 21-day window for evaluation for returning. He had a foot tendon injury Oct. 28 and has been on injured reserve. His return to the lineup would likely mean right guard Bryan Witzmann would return to the bench. Long made the Pro Bowl from 2013-15 before a series of injuries that cost him time over the past three seasons.
|Dec 26 2018 - Eddie Jackson|
S Eddie Jackson (ankle) is not practicing this week and didn't practice or play last week. It's unlikely he'd be ready to play against the Vikings and the Bears are hoping he'll be healthy enough to take part in practices before their first playoff game.
|Dec 26 2018 - Aaron Lynch|
LB Aaron Lynch (elbow) didn't play last week and remains day-to-day with an elbow injury suffered against the Green Bay Packers Dec. 16. He missed Wednesday's practice. Lynch's presence aids the Bears at stopping the run, and also to spell Khalil Mack and Leonard Floyd.
|Dec 26 2018 - Allen Robinson|
WR Allen Robinson II (ribs) suffered an injury in Sunday's win and returned to finish the game. He didn't practice Wednesday and will be monitored this week to see if he's able to play against the Vikings.

|Dec 24 2018 - Kyle Long|
G Kyle Long can come off injured reserve after missing over a month with a foot injury. Bears coach Matt Nagy said he is "cautiously optimistic" Long could return and play in this game with the Vikings. It would be a plus to get Long up and running in the offensive line blocking scheme before a playoff game.
|Dec 24 2018 - Allen Robinson|
WR Allen Robinson exited Sunday's win with an unspecified injury to his midsection and returned to complete the game.
|Dec 21 2018 - Kyle Long|

|Dec 19 2018 - Aaron Lynch|
DE Aaron Lynch (elbow) suffered a right elbow injury against Green Bay and is unlikely to play in Sunday's game with the 49ers.
|Dec 19 2018 - Deon Bush|
S Deon Bush will make his first start since 2016 with Eddie Jackson sidelined. Bush is confident he's a different player than when he was forced to start those six games as a rookie due to injuries in the secondary. "I've been here for three years so I know a lot more than I knew in the past," Bush said. "And I'm just going out there and just playing fast right now."
|Dec 19 2018 - Eddie Jackson|
S Eddie Jackson limped around in the locker room this week with a boot cast on his right foot and ankle. He won't play against the 49ers and most likely against the Vikings in the regular-season finale. The hope is he might be ready for a wild-card round playoff game.

|Dec 19 2018 - Eddie Jackson|

Head coach Matt Nagy, who said Jackson sprained his right ankle on a play in which he intercepted a pass by Aaron Rodgers later in the game, told reporters that the Bears' medical team would monitor the injury over the next few days to see if he can play on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. "We gotta take into consideration our situation, of where we are at," said Nagy, whose Bears (10-4) have clinched the NFC North title and have a chance in the last two games to wrap up a bye in the first round of the playoffs. Nagy said that he hopes Jackson, who on Tuesday was named to the NFC team for the Pro Bowl in only his second NFL season, will be able to practice later in the week if he is healthy but that he won't be rushed back.

|Dec 16 2018 - Charles Leno|

RB Jordan Howard had 16 carries for 76 yards against the Giants.
|Dec 3 2018 - Chase Daniel|
QB Chase Daniel was sacked five times by the Giants. Coach Scott Nagy called it all a part of an offense that seemed to be out of sync much of the game. "It's the receivers, it's the quarterback but then there's that protection side, as well," Nagy said. "And so there were some times whether it was vision with Chase or whether it was hard to slide and move to be able to see the guy that he's looking for or was a guy that didn't get open and we didn't have protection. I felt like yesterday it didn't always match up throughout the game together."
