Chicago Bears Injury Report, Week 17: Brian Urlacher, Marion Barber Don't Participate On Wednesday

The Chicago Bears don't have much to play for at least point now that their five-game losing streak as eliminated them from playoff contention, so it would be understandable for them to avoid pushing players that are expected to be key to next season. Quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte were placed on the injured reserve earlier this week.

The team's official injury report can be found here, but it's shown below:

Limited Participation

- WR Devin Hester

- LB Nick Roach

- C Chris Spencer

- DE Corey Wootton

Did Not Participate

- DE Julius Peppers

- LB Brian Urlacher

- RB Marion Barber

- TE Kellen Davis

The big names to see here are Urlacher, Barber, Roach and Hester. Peppers didn't practice on Wednesday, but the team says that it's not related to an injury. The Bears will likely be starting Kahlil Bell at running back against Minnesota in place of Barber.
