The Bears conducted a walk through today. Had practice been conducted today, Briggs and Bennett would have been limited, while Paea and Tillman would have been held out.
It would be surprising if Bennett or Briggs didn't play. Tillman will likely give it a go but may not be able to finish the game, as has been the case the past two weeks.
The biggest issue is Paea, who is still dealing with pain in the toe. This is crucial, as both Collins and Henry Melton are out for the season with torn ACLs. Putting Paea on the field against the Giants puts him at risk of further injuring the toe, thus compromising the rest of his season.
For the Giants, the following players have been ruled out: C David Bass (neck), CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring), TE Adrien Robinson (foot), S Cooper Taylor (shoulder), CB Corey Webster (groin) and RB David Wilson (neck).
