Chicago may get cornerback Tim Jennings back from a shoulder injury when the Bears take on the Cardinals in Arizona in Week 16.
Jennings has been arguably the Bears' biggest defensive playmaker this year. Along with his eight interceptions, two of his pass deflections have resulted in interceptions, as Chicago leads the NFL with 37 takeaways. He separated his shoulder in a Week 13 loss to Seattle in a tackling attempt on fullback Michael Robinson. The Bears lost that game, as well as the next two, having gone from 7-1 to 8-6 this season.
It looks like defensive tackle Henry Melton will miss his third-straight game after suffering a chest injury against Minnesota in Week 14. Melton has 41 tackles and six sacks this season.
The Bears and Cardinals kick off at 3:25 p.m. CT Sunday in Glendale, Ariz.
