Saying he was “doing good,” Bears outside linebacker Pernell McPhee declined to give any assurances he would play Sunday after missing last week’s game because of a knee injury.

McPhee missed Thursday’s practice, one day after sitting out Wednesday.

“I’m going to leave the game-time decision in coach’s hands; him and the training staff, they know what they’re doing,” he said. “I’m going to let them answer those questions. Right now, I’m feeling good, feeling great.”

McPhee said his knee injury was not the same as the one the Bears monitored before last week.

“I tweaked it, I think,” he said. “I was on some turf. But I’ll be all right.”

He didn’t say which turf, but the Bears’ indoor facility has artificial turf; they practiced there Nov. 12. Before Sunday in St. Louis, the Bears hadn’t played a game on artificial turf since Oct. 18 in Detroit.
