Amukamara Doubtful for Matchup Against Cowboys
Who will fill in for Amukamara if he’s unable to play on Thursday night?
After a poor performance against the Lions on Thanksgiving, Bears cornerback Prince Amukamara is listed as “doubtful” for Thursday Night’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears posted the injury report following their walkthrough today at Hallas Hall.
The expected four remain out this week, as Ben Braunecker and Taylor Gabriel are both dealing with concussions, Bobby Massie is nursing an ankle injury, Danny Trevathan is still sidelined following a nasty elbow injury.
Onto the important question: who steps in for Prince?
Chris Emma of 670 The Score indicated that Kevin Toliver could be a likely replacement.
Toliver has a huge opportunity here. It’s a primetime game at home that the Bears need to win in order to keep their season alive. The defense wasn’t at its best last week, but the Cowboys are in shambles right now. Their head coach is on the hottest seat in America, they have a quarterback who has thrown an interception in nine of 12 games so far this year. It’s time for Toliver and co. to step up and make plays because this, in my opinion, is a winnable football game on home turf.
