The Bears produced a lengthy injury report, with five starters not practicing Thursday.

Guard Kyle Long, who practiced Wednesday, missed Thursday’s practice with a hip injury. He was on the injury report last week with the same problem.

Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks missed his second-straight practice with a right knee injury that coach Matt Nagy said would likely force a game-time decision Sunday. Eddy Pineiro didn’t kick, either, as he battles a pinched nerve in his right knee.

Receiver Taylor Gabriel remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol, while backup running back Mike Davis missed his second straight practice for personal reasons. Defensive lineman Bilal Nichols remains out with a broken hand suffered against the Broncos.

Safety Eddie Jackson was limited for a second straight day with a shoulder problem, while tight end Trey Burton, tackle Bobby Massie, defensive end Roy Robertson Harris and receiver Cordarrelle Patterson were full participants.
