Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is questionable, QB Jay Cutler doubtful for Sunday

Alshon Jeffery is questionable, Jay Cutler is doubtful, plus the rest of the Chicago Bears injury report for Sunday's matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Chicago Bears will very likely be without the services of QB Jay Cutler this week, who is doubtful for Sunday night's contest against the Dallas Cowboys due to a thumb injury. The team's top wideout, Alshon Jeffery, is questionable with a knee injury. 

Jeffery was limited in practice on Wednesday but did not practice Thursday or Friday. 

"He was dealing with some soreness, and we held him out just to help get him ready for Sunday," head coach John Fox said after today's practice.

Fox said Cutler has been lobbying to play Sunday.

"All these guys are competitors, they all want to play," he said. "When you're injured to the point where you're going to hurt the team, I respect and appreciate guys that will make that decision. We're trying to win games. I know it hasn't been that noticeable thus far but hopefully we can get that changed."

Here is the official injury report for the Bears in Week 3.
