Chicago Bears injuries: Henry Melton, Israel Idonije limited Wednesday

Ronald Martinez

Henry Melton and Israel Idonije were limited in practice on Wednesday, but both players expect to play on Sunday night, when the Bears host the Houston Texans.

Lovie Smith released the Chicago Bears' first injury report of Week 10 on Wednesday, as the Bears prepare to host the Houston Texans on Sunday Night Football.

Defensive end Israel Idonije (ankle) and Henry Melton (back) were limited in practice on Wednesday. Idonije was injured in Chicago's Week 9 win over the Tennessee Titans, but expects to play on Sunday. Idonije said that he is "fortunate [he] can play through pain."

Like Idonije, Melton injured himself during Chicago's win over Tennessee. Also like Idonije, Melton expects to play on Sunday, when the Bears host the Texans.

Matt Toeaina was also listed as limited in practice, with a calf injury.

Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery did not participate in practice, and is unlikely to play on Sunday night. Jeffery broke his hand during Chicago's Week 5 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jefferey is targeting a Week 11 return, when the Bears take on the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football.
