The Bears injury report lists Marshall and Jeffery as probably today, despite both missing practice on Wednesday. Marshall was a limited participant on Thursday and Friday, while Jeffery was upgraded from a limited participant on Thursday, to a full participant on Friday. Both Marshall and Jeffery have dealt with injuries throughout the season, but have fought through them and not missed any games.
Marshall, who is dealing with an ankle injury, was significantly effected by a similar injury early in the season, recording only six catches for 69 yards in weeks three through five. Recently, however, Marshall has 15 catches for 202 yards and three touchdowns in the last two weeks against division rivals Packers and Vikings. Expect him to be healthy, with the potential to put up some big numbers again this week.
Jeffery is dealing with a hamstring injury, something that he's been dealing with throughout the season. As a full participant on Friday and listed as probable on the injury report, all signs report to him being fully available for today's game against Tampa Bay. Just like Marshall, Jeffery has done well in his last two games, with 17 catches for 198 yards and a touchdown, and there is no reason to think he can't continue his strong performances today.
Starting right offensive tackle Jordan Mills is struggling with a rib injury and is questionable for today. Mills has missed two of the Bears last three games, including last week's game against the Vikings. His status for today may be a game time decision.
