Chicago Bears fullback Evan Rodriguez has been ruled out while wide receiver Earl Bennett remains questionable on Friday as Chicago (3-1) travels to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars (1-3) in Week 5 on Sunday, according to Tom Musick of the Northwest Herald via Twitter.

Running back Matt Forte and defensive end Julius Peppers, both recovering from ankle injuries, were listed as probable for Sunday.

Rodriguez, nursing a knee injury, will miss his second straight game along with Bennett, whose injured hand also made him inactive for Monday night's 34-18 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Devin Hester gave the receiving corps some depth in Dallas, however, catching three passes for 38 yards and a touchdown.

In three games this season, Bennett has six catches for 82 yards, including a long reception of 25 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Chicago's 41-21 Week 1 victory.

Kickoff in Jacksonville is set for 3:05 p.m. CT at EverBank Field, and the game will be televised on Fox.
