Chicago Bears Injury Report, Week 15: Matt Forte, Jay Cutler Out; Henry Melton, Devin Hester Questionable

The Chicago Bears have released their Week 15 Injury Report:


QB Jay Cutler
RB Matt Forte
WR Sam Hurd (released)


DT Henry Melton
WR Devin Hester


CB Charles Tillman
G Edwin Williams
S Major Wright

The biggest news of the week has surrounded now-released WR Sam Hurd, who was arrested on federal drug charges on Thursday. The Bears used Hurd mostly on special teams, and have since promoted DE Thaddeus Gibson.

The Bears are also struggling on the injury front, with DT Henry Melton (7.0 sacks) and Devin Hester (league-leading 18.5 yards per punt return) questionable against the Seattle Seahawks. The Chicago offense will also be turning once again to backups QB Caleb Hanie and RB Marion Barber to lead the offense with Cutler and Forte still on the mend.
