Minnesota Vikings Injury Report

The big injury that everyone is following for either side is the status of quarterback Sam Bradford. He's questionable for tonight with a knee injury after practicing in full on Saturday. If he starts, it'll be the first time he suits up since Week 1.

Eric Kendricks will play tonight after being sick last week and so should running back Jerick McKinnon. The only player that is out as of this writing is tackle Rashod Hill (knee)

Chicago Bears Injury Report

The Bears come into tonight relatively healthy, although most of their key injuries came early in the season. Marcus Cooper is questionable with a back injury, while center Groniss Grasu is questionable with a hand injury. Linebacker Willie Young is doubtful with a triceps injury.

OUR PREDICTION: Trubisky isn't going to light up Mike Zimmer's outstanding defense but he's an upgrade over the statute Mike Glennon. The Bears' offense hasn't been awful thanks to the running back tandem of Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen, although Glennon was holding the entire unit back with his play. Long story short, I believe the Bears get a bump with the mobile Trubisky under center and they're tough to beat at home, regardless of their record. If you wait until Bradford's status is announced, the Bears could become even bigger home dogs and thus, their value increases.
