Matt Nagy met with the Chicago media and announced some players are already ruled out for Monday Night Football. The Bears will be without Xavier Crawford and Jason Peters. Teven Jenkins will make his first NFL start with Peters sidelined. DeAndre Houston-Carson is named as well as he’s done for the season with an injury.

The Vikings lead the league in sacks and Jenkins didn’t play particularly well last week against the Packers. Monday night could be another rough game for the rookie tackle.

Bears Doubtfuls and Questionables

Khyiris Tonga and Marquise Goodwin are doubtful to play for the Bears this week. Both players have been dealing with injuries all week and did not practice.

Akiem Hicks returned to practice on Thursday and has been a full participant ever since. He is still questionable to play on Monday Night Football against the Vikings, but his status has looked positive lately.

Roquan Smith is also questionable as he deals with a nagging hamstring injury.

The past week was devastating to the Chicago Bears roster. The coaching staff took a massive hit due to COVID-19 as well. Now, Teven Jenkins gets his first NFL start in a ‘next man up’ scenario. With Jason Peters out, Jenkins has a huge challenge in front of him.
