It's Friday, and that means that the injury reports for both teams have been released, and there are some big ones for each team.
Since we generally do the visiting team first, let's start with the Vikings.
Yes, Antoine Winfield is still listed as doubtful with his neck injury, so it seems that the odds of him playing on Sunday night are pretty low. Granted, the Bears' pass offense isn't great or anything, but Winfield would have been nice to have in matching up with Matt Forte.
E.J. Henderson is still having an issue with his knee, but he'll play, although the number of snaps he'll see will likely be limited, much the way they were last week against Arizona. Nobody else listed on the injury report is a real risk to miss Sunday night's game.
The Bears' injury report is coming after the jump.
Obviously, the big name on the list here is Peppers. The belief leading up to this one was that Peppers' knee injury would continue to get better throughout the week, and that he would be good to go by Sunday night. However, he didn't practice on Friday, and as you can see is now listed as doubtful. Now, granted, "doubtful" doesn't mean "out" by any stretch, but it looks as though things might be a little bit easier for the Minnesota offensive line on Sunday night at Soldier Field.
