Carey (hamstring) would have been a limited participant had the Bears held practice Monday, ESPN reports.

NFL rules require teams that play on Thursday to release an injury report on the preceding Monday, but the Bears did not hold practice and instead released a projected injury report based off coach opinion. Consequently, it appears Carey would have continued to participate in the same limited capacity he had all of last week. He ultimately wound up suiting up Sunday against the Jaguars, but he also wasn't playing on a short week. Thus, it's not clear if Carey will be ready by Thursday night, but an actual injury report (to be released after the Bears' practice on Tuesday) will help illuminate the situation.
