Carey (hamstring) will not play in the Bears' matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday.
Carey, who exited Chicago's Week 2 game with a hamstring injury, was considered doubtful to play after Friday's practice. His confirmed absence likely spells an increased workload for rookie Jordan Howard.
Cutler (thumb) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Dallas, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
While a previous report said the Bears won't make a final decision until Sunday, the 'doubtful' designation strongly suggests Cutler will miss at least one game. He didn't participate in practice all week, leaving Brian Hoyer as the likely starter Sunday against Dallas.
Fuller (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Fuller is still recovering from mid-August arthroscopic knee surgery, and has yet to take the field this season. He was limited in practice last week before ultimately being ruled inactive. The Bears are likely exercising caution with the 24-year-old in order to ensure his health going forward. He is trending toward another questionable designation for Sunday night's game against the Bears. Delondre' Hall figures to be in line for another start if Fuller cannot play.
Updating a previous note, Goldman (ankle) has been ruled out for four weeks, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Goldman is dealing with a high ankle sprain that is expected to sideline him until Week 7 when the Bears take on the Packers. The defensive tackle is just one of the many injuries that resulted from Monday's loss to the Eagles. Danny Trevathan is expected to miss extended time as he undergoes finger surgery, while Lamar Houston was lost for the year with a torn ACL. Not to mention Jay Cutler is nursing a thumb injury which will keep him sidelined for some time. In Goldman's absence, look for Will Sutton to take over as a starter.
Trevathan (thumb) is ruled out for Sunday's contest.
Trevathan underwent surgery to repair his injured thumb Wednesday, but he will not be ready for Week 3 action. There was some speculation earlier in the week that Trevathan could possibly play through the pain as long as he wore a cast, but that seemed to err on the side of wishful thinking. Christian Jones could see extensive action during his absence.
Braunecker worked out on the side of practice on Thursday as he recovers from an ankle injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Braunecker is an undrafted rookie who faces an uphill battle to make Chicago's roster, as he's buried on the depth chart. The sooner he can return to action the better, and it appears he's nearing a return now that he's been able to at least work out on the side. Rob Housler and Gannon Sinclair will likely continue to see extra reps as long as Braunecker is out.
Ferguson has been handed a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports.
After notching three tackles in four games, Ferguson was placed on season-ending injured reserve in October due to a nagging knee injury. Thus, his ban won't kick in until he's healthy enough to take the field during the 2016 campaign.
Nkemdiche (ankle) is unlikely to play Sunday against the Bills, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Nkemdiche was unable to play last weekend due to the injury, and while there was a possibility he was going to give it a go Sunday, he has apparently not done enough in practice to warrant a game-day spot.
