Sutton's stat line was almost identical to what he posted a season earlier as a rookie (22 tackles, two passes defensed in 15 games). The defensive lineman is still looking for his first career sack, and doesn't figure to offer much production in that category as the Bears continue to utilize him primarily as a 3-4 end.
Will Sutton (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports.
Sutton was limited during all three of the Chicago Bears ' practices this week, but he'll be available off the bench in the defensive line rotation. The second-year tackle has supplied 16 tackles and no sacks across his 10 games on the season.
Chicago Bears defensive end Will Sutton (biceps) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders .
Sutton was expected to slide back to a bench role with Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle) returning from a three-game suspension, but both players are listed as questionable for Sunday, after logging limited practices throughout the week. If both suit up, Ratliff will probably get the start and play more snaps. Neither warrants IDP consideration.
Sutton had logged about 40 snaps in each of the Bears' first two games, but even before the injury surfaced, he looked bound for a decline in playing time. Jeremiah Ratliff will return from a three-game suspension during the Week 4 matchup with the Raiders, resulting in Sutton moving back to a bench role.
The Bears will see how Sutton progresses from the injury during the week of practice before determining if he will be available for the upcoming game.
