Chicago Bears Injury Report: Team Escapes Opener In Good Health

The Chicago Bears escaped Sunday's season-opening 41-21 victory over the Indianapolis Colts "in good shape," according to head coach Lovie Smith (via ESPNChicago.com).

Cornerback Charles Tillman was the highest-profile player that suffered an injury in Week 1, as he took a shot on the leg and would have missed practice today, had the Bears held one. Smith said that he believes Tillman will be in action once the team returns to practice.

Meanwhile, tight end Kyle Adams and offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb also sustained injuries on Sunday. Webb's is a minor thumb injury, while Adams hurt his shoulder. It is unclear how soon Adams will be back on the field, but Webb is expected to practice soon.

Linebacker Brian Urlacher was removed from the game during the third quarter for strictly precautionary reasons, according to Smith, although the Bears were "pleased with how he played first time out." Urlacher would have been kept out of practice today as well, but should return to the field this week.
