Status of Bears CB Tim Jennings still up in the air

John Gress

Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings remains questionable for Week 16 due to a nagging shoulder injury.

Although he was able to practice on Thursday in a limited capacity, Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings remains a question mark for his team's Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Jennings has already missed each of Chicago's last two games after dislocating his shoulder in Week 13 against Seattle, but told Michael C. Wright of ESPNChicago.com that he still thinks he can contribute this weekend despite the uncertainty.

"I'm always eager to get back out there to kind of help the team and contribute," Jennings said. "I just want to definitely make sure my shoulder is where it needs to be strength and flexibility-wise to go out there and help the team win. I know if I feel like I can't help them at all, then I'm no good out there."

Without Jennings on the field, the Bears have been forced to use veteran defensive back Kelvin Hayden at a starting corner spot with somewhat frustrating results. Jennings currently leads all NFL players with eight interceptions despite playing in just 12 games, and would clearly give the Bears a huge boost this Sunday in a must-win game.
