Howard (shoulder) was limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, but Bears coach John Fox suggested he isn't concerned about the running back's availability, Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Among the eight players Chicago lists as questionable, Howard seems least likely to sit out Sunday's game. He was a limited participant throughout the week of practice, with Fox suggesting both Wednesday and Friday that he isn't worried about his starting running back's shoulder injury. The emergence of Tarik Cohen will limit Howard's pass-game involvement, but the second-year back should stay plenty busy on the ground whenever the Bears can avoid getting blown out.
