Chicago Bears injuries: Henry Melton, Tim Jennings and Earl Bennett limited in practice

Jonathan Daniel

Henry Melton, Tim Jennings and Earl Bennett were limited in practice on Wednesday, as the Bears get ready to take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16.

The Chicago Bears may receive a boost in Week 16, if Wednesday's injury report is any indication. Henry Melton, Earl Bennett and Tim Jennings were all limited for the Bears during Wednesday's practice, while Brian Urlacher and Jonathan Scott did not participate.

Bennett has missed the last two weeks after suffering a concussion during Chicago's Week 13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. It appears that the wide receiver is on track to return to action for the Bears in Week 16, when they take on the Arizona Cardinals.

Like Bennett, Jennings was injured during Chicago's loss to Seattle. Jennings dislocated his right shoulder in the loss, and hasn't played since. Lovie Smith and his coaching staff are optimistic that Jennings will be able to return in Week 16, as the Bears look to inch closer to a wild card berth.

Melton injured himself during Chicago's Week 14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, and missed the Bears' Week 15 tilt against the Green Bay Packers. Melton suffered a shoulder injury, but his return to practice on Wednesday indicates that Chicago's talented pass-rusher will be able to return in Week 16.
