Gipson (foot) will play in Monday's game versus the Vikings. Gipson upgraded to full participation at Saturday's practice, so he'll avoid missing his first game of the year. The veteran safety has missed just one snap all year, and he's recorded 43 tackles (32 solo), four pass breakups and two interceptions over nine games. He'll start at strong safety once again.
Gipson (foot) was limited during the Bears' practice session Thursday. The one-time Pro Bowl safety dealt with a foot issue heading into last Sunday's matchup against the Titans, but he ultimately was able to take the field after logging a limited week of practice participation. Gipson garnered 100 percent of the defensive snaps against Tennessee -- as he has in eight of nine appearances this season -- but the injury has not subsided since initially being reported Nov. 4. If Gipson weren't able to play against Minnesota on Monday Night Football, Deandre Houston-Carson would step into the spotlight at strong safety. So far, however, Gipson is on the same trajectory towards playing as he was this time last week.
Gipson (foot) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Titans, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. The veteran safety was limited at practice all week but is ready to take the field this weekend. Gipson has played all but one defensive snap this season and should remain in his every-down role at Tennessee.
Gipson (foot) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice. Gipson had a busy game in last week's loss to the Saints, racking up eight tackles across 73 of 74 defensive snaps. It's unclear how serious the injury is, as the team could be electing to rest the Wyoming product. If Gipson were to suffer a setback, Deon Bush would be in line for the start at strong safety.
Gipson tallied eight stops in the Bears' 26-23 overtime loss to the Saints on Sunday. With New Orleans employing a conservative game plan, Gipson took advantage of the plays in front of him and recorded his second-highest tackle total of the season. Despite his solid performance, his tackle numbers tend to fluctuate greatly, making him a risky IDP weekly lineup option.
