Vikings at Bears: injury reports

The Bears are still holding out some faint hope for a playoff place as the regular season draws closer to its end. Sitting 4-9, they have had to turn to younger players in recent weeks and this will continue tonight. The Vikings normally don't have a good time in Chicago but the situation about who is available for these teams has been hit by the latest wave of covid-19, adding to the usual wear and tear of the weekly tussles. Could that help?

Minnesota Vikings: injury report Week 15

NFL news and insight:

The big news over the weekend with the Minnesota Vikings players was them waiving starting cornerback Bashaud Breeland. The 29-year-old veteran initially responded to the surprise move on Twitter with one word: "Wow." Breeland followed up with another tweet saying there were "no hard feelings no love lost."

He had been listed as questionable for a non-injury-related personal matter for tonight's game in Chicago. NFL Network reported that Breeland had a verbal altercation with coaches at practice Saturday. Per the report, he then "got into it with multiple teammates who were trying to calm the situation."

Breeland has 63 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles in 13 starts this season. The Vikings signed him to a one-year, $4 million contract in June. A Super Bowl LIV champ with the Chiefs, Breeland has 16 interceptions in 107 games (101 starts) with Washington (2014-17), Green Bay (2018), Kansas City (2019-20) and Minnesota.

Chicago Bears: injury report Week 15

With a virus running amok, it's not just about the players. The Chicago Bears have at least one of their three coordinators back at work for tonight's game. Defensive coordinator Sean Desai has cleared covid-19 protocols and will coach against the Vikings.

Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor and special teams coordinator Chris Tabor remain in the protocols as of this morning. If they are not cleared before kickoff, quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo will coach the offense against the Vikings and special teams assistant Brian Ginn will coach that unit, head coach Matt Nagy said. All three coordinators were placed in protocols last Thursday. Nagy himself missed Chicago's Week 8 game against San Francisco after testing positive for covid-19.

The Bears also have 14 players left in the protocol: Quarterback Andy Dalton, running back Ryan Nall, receivers Allen Robinson II and Isaiah Coulter, tight end Jesse James, tackle Larry Borom, defensive end Mario Edwards Jr., inside linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe, outside linebacker Sam Kamara, cornerbacks Jaylon Johnson and Artie Burns, safeties Eddie Jackson and Tashaun Gipson Sr. and nickel back Duke Shelley.
