09/18/17DBPrince AmukamaraAnkleQUESTIONABLEAmukamara (ankle) is inactive Sunday for the Bears' Week 2 game against the Buccaneers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

The absence of their top corner is a major blow to a Bears defense that was already set to have its hands full with containing Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and a Tampa Bay receiving unit ripe with high-level talent. Amukamara was at least able to practice three times in a limited capacity this week, so he could have a more realistic shot at playing in the Bears' Week 3 matchup with the Steelers.

09/18/17RBBenny CunninghamAnkleQUESTIONABLECunningham (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

The session marks Cunningham's first since suffering a left high-ankle sprain in the regular-season opener. Because such injuries are typically accompanied by a multi-week absence, he may have been testing the waters Wednesday. If he proves healthy enough to suit up Sunday against the Steelers, he may be hard-pressed to wrest pass-catching duties from rookie Tarik Cohen, though first- and second-down work could be available due to the shoulder injury plaguing starting RB Jordan Howard at the moment.

09/17/17RBJordan HowardShoulderQUESTIONABLEHoward (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

Howard has been tending to a right shoulder injury since the first half of the Bears' Week 1 loss to the Falcons. After aggravating the injury Sunday at Tampa Bay, he was wearing a sling but didn't touch on the ailment until a media session Monday. "My shoulder, I'm good, I'm good," he told Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times. If Howard's limited session Wednesday is any indication, he's still hampered by the injury and could again play second fiddle to Tarik Cohen for the second weekend in a row.

09/17/17LBNick KwiatkoskiPectoralQUESTIONABLEKwiatkoski (pectoral) is out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Christian Jones will continue to slot in at inside linebacker during Kwiatkoski's absence. Moreover, the seriousness of this injury is unclear, so continue to check back to see if this will be a long-term problem on the Bears' defense.
