The Chicago Bears will head to Tennessee in Week 9, as Lovie Smith's team looks to improve to 7-1 on the season and further their stranglehold on the NFC North.

Both teams released their injury report on Wednesday, and as expected, Alshon Jeffery has been ruled out for the Bears. Jeffery is targeting a Week 10 return from a broken hand he suffered on Oct. 7.

Bears tight end Matt Spaeth was limited in practice with an ankle injury. Linebacker Patrick Bailey (ribs), cornerback Tommy Campbell (ankle), guard Leroy Harris (knee) and tackle David Stewart (knee) all missed practice.

Titans quarterback Jake Locker was limited in practice with a left shoulder injury. Even though Locker was limited, the young Tennessee quarterback has been ruled out for Week 9.

Linebacker Colin McCarthy (ankle), tackle Michael Ross (abdomen) and linebacker Will Witherspoon (hamstring) were also limited in practice. Wide receivers Nate Washington (knee) and Kenny Britt (knee), safety Michael Griffin (hip), center Fernando Velaso (concussion) and defensive end Kameron Wimbley (toe) were all full participants in practice.
