Despite picking up a 28-10 win over Minnesota on Sunday, the Chicago Bears were not able to escape their Week 12 game without suffering a handful of key injuries on both sides of the ball.

Along with a concussion picked up by receiver and star returner Devin Hester, the Bears also saw starting tailback Matt Forte and starting cornerback Charles Tillman both go down with ankle injuries. While he was not able to return to action after being rolled up awkwardly in a pile, Forte still chipped in 42 rushing yards on 14 carries before being helped from the field.

The Bears also lost offensive linemen Chris Spencer and Lance Louis to knee sprains on Sunday as well, and each player will undergo an MRI on Monday to assess the possible damage. To make matters worse, star linebacker Lance Briggs was spotted leaving the stadium in a walking boot by Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times. Though Briggs played the entire game without incident, the Pro Bowl linebacker is likely to be one of many questionable players heading into a pivotal Week 13 game with Seattle.
