Bears injury notes: Knee trouble keeps kicker Eddy Pineiro out of practice

The Bears’ injury report is the longest it has been this season, and some key players are in question for the Vikings game.

It’s going to be a tense week for the Bears as they track an injury report that started with 10 players after their walk-through Wednesday.

Kicker Eddy Pineiro (knee), wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (knee) were unable to participate. Pineiro and Hicks are expected to play Sunday against the Vikings, but Gabriel is in the NFL’s protocol until cleared.

Wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (tricep), safety Eddie Jackson (shoulder) and defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris (glute) were partial participants.

The good news for the Bears was tight end Trey Burton (groin) going through his first full session of the season, and right tackle Bobby Massie was full-go after missing the Washington game because of vertigo.
