Tim Jennings injury: Bears CB doesn't have full range of motion in shoulder

John Gress

Jennings was ruled out of the Bears' game against the Vikings on Friday after missing practice all week.

The Chicago Bears could be without cornerback Tim Jennings next week against the Green Bay Packers as they look to avoid a three-game losing streak following today's 21-14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Jennings didn't practice all week as he dealt with a dislocated shoulder.

The Bears are already dealing with a banged up defense as Brian Urlacher and Stephen Paea both sat out of today's loss. Jennings' goal is now to play against the Packers next weekend in a game the Bears need to win to keep some space between them and a crowded NFC playoff race. Whether Jennings plays in an increasingly important game for the Bears will depend on how healthy he can get throughout the week.

I don't have my range of motion all the way back. [Playing] will depend on how this week goes with the range of motion and the soreness.

The Bears would love to get Jennings back against the Packers' potent passing attack. Jennings has 54 tackles on the season and a team-leading eight interceptions. The Bears will close out their home schedule next week at noon before traveling to face the Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions to finish the season.
