Bears list 10 players on Wednesday's injury report

The Bears list 10 players on Wednesday's injury report, including Jay Cutler, Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte.

The Chicago Bears held out four players during Wednesday's practice: QB Jay Cutler (hamstring), WR Alshon Jeffery (hanstring), WR Eddie Royal (back/hip) and LB Jon Bostic (ankle). 

Head coach John Fox said no one has been ruled out for Sunday's contest agains the Seattle Seahawks, even Cutler. 

"He's taking it day-to-day," Fox said after today's practice. "We'll see what tomorrow brings. We don't rule anybody out for games until Friday."

Fox said a recent report by ESPN's Adam Schefter that Cutler will miss at least two weeks is false. 

"I don't know how they pick coin flips and how they are at the track," he said. "I don't know how they would know if we don't."

The Bears also listed six players as limited in practice: RB Matt Forte (knee), WR Marquess Wilson (shoulder), G Matt Slauson (thigh/toe), DL Ego Ferguson (knee), OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) and CB Tracy Porter (hamstring). 

Porter hasn't practiced since injuring his hamstring in the third preseason game, which is good news, as the Bears are desperate for a cornerback with coverage ability. 

"He looked pretty good today," Fox said. "He took some limited reps. We'll see how he reacts to that this afternoon and overnight, and see what he's able to do tomorrow. Any time you get your guys back on the field, it's helpful."
