The Chicago Bears were already short in the secondary head into Week 5 when they added another starter to the list a day before playing the Washington Commanders on Thursday Night Football. The Bears are without Kyler Gordon, who is on injured reserve.
The Chicago Bears add Jaquan Brisker to the injury report
Jaylon Johnson (hamstring) and Eddie Jackson (foot) had been listed as DNP Monday and Tuesday on the Week 5 injury report. According to the injury report released Wednesday, Johnson and Jackson have been ruled out.
One surprise: Jaquan Brisker was added to the injury report Wednesday. The Bears listed Brisker as questionable to play the Commanders due to a hamstring injury.
Wide receiver Chase Claypool will also miss the Commanders game for the injury caused to head coach Matt Eberflus’ ego last week. The Bears could have Teven Jenkins back for the first time all season in Week 5.

If Brisker cannot play, the only starter still playing in the secondary in Week 5 will be rookie Tyrique Stevenson. That could spell trouble for a defense about to face offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.
