The Chicago Bears released their first injury report for Week Three and there was good news. Bears' nose tackle Eddie Goldman practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday.

Despite the Bears' strong efforts against the run through the first two weeks, Eddie Goldman's presence on the defensive line will only help. He is an elite run stopper and he also can help eat blockers to free up others such as Akiem Hicks, Robert Quinn, and Khalil Mack to get after the quarterback.

Speaking of Hicks, he did not participate in practice on Wednesday due to illness. Based on the lack of word about his future, its safe to assume he'll play on Sunday.

Linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu, tight end Jimmy Graham, and quarterback Andy Dalton also did not practice on Wednesday. Attaochu is primarily a reserve player for the Bears, with only one tackle and one QB hit through two weeks. As for Graham, he's listed as just resting while Dalton is nursing the bone bruise on his knee. The Red Rifle's name being on the injury report comes as no surprise after the Bears announced Justin Fields as their starting quarterback against Cleveland.

Assuming there aren't any new additions to the injury report on Thursday, the Bears will be fairly healthy come Sunday against the Browns.
