Chicago Bears injury updates for Wednesday
Heading into the week four matchup against the Green Bay Packers, the injuries have piled up. The Bears could be without several key players in their showdown with the Packers.
Here is the latest injury update after Wednesday’s practice:
Matt Slauson and Roberto Garza
The Bears lost two members of their offensive line against the Bills but they could be close to returning. Both Slauson and Garza could practice on Thursday, but remain day-to-day. Still questionable for Green Bay.
Trestman: Garza & Slauson are "day to day," he's not optimistic, but there's a shot that they practice Thursday or Friday. #Bears

Shea McClellin OUT vs. Green Bay
McClellin OUT on Sunday. #Bears

McClellin broke his hand in the week two win at San Francisco and was out of the Jets game on Monday. Things haven’t changed much this week for McClellin who was ruled out by Coach Trestman. Shea will be week-to-week after this week but you have to figure he will be out at least a few more weeks.
The Bears will likely go with Lance Briggs, D.J. Williams and Jon Bostic as their linebackers on Sunday.
Ryan Mundy to play Sunday
After suffering an injury against the Jets, Bears safety Ryan Mundy expects to play on Sunday against the Packers. That helps a depleted Bears secondary who at one point had Ahmad Dixon and Brock Vereen in the game.
