[November 02, 2017]    TE Ben Braunecker is another player who could take on a more important role after Zach Miller's season-ending knee injury. The second-year receiver was on the practice squad, but was injured and did not practice. The Bears aren't required to report injuries to practice-squad players, and they hadn't. "The good news is, he is healthy enough now and we'll see where that takes us as we adjust our roster going forward," head coach John Fox said.

 

WR Kevin White (shoulder) could still return from a broken scapula. White is on injured reserve after an injury in the opener. White has been in meetings and spent time around players while trying to stay in shape. "He's in the building," head coach John Fox said. "We haven't really discussed seriously at this point about if he can come back, or when. But he's eligible."

C Cody Whitehair (elbow) missed bye-week practices and his status for the next game is uncertain. "It's really hard to predict," head coach John Fox said. "We have time and time heals all wounds."

G Kyle Long (finger) missed bye-week practices and his status for the next game is uncertain. "It's really hard to predict," head coach John Fox said. "We have time and time heals all wounds."
